MOTU ships Digital Performer version 8

updated 06:45 pm EDT, Fri September 28, 2012

Available at reduced prices to competitive product users, upgraders

MOTU is now shipping Digital Performer version 8, a major upgrade to its flagship audio workstation software. Significant new features include 64-bit operation, a new video playback engine, Punch Guard confidence recording, 17 new included plug-ins, 15 new user interface themes, and new plug-in management features.

Version 8 ships with 17 new plug-ins, including two new classic guitar amp models, a bass cabinet model, several classic guitar pedals, modeled analog delay, a multi-band dynamic equalizer, a precision delay, a de-esser, the Subkick kick drum enhancer, and Springamabob -- a modeled vintage spring reverb processor.

Digital Performer 8's new video engine allows full-screen viewing of full 720P or 1080P video clips on a primary or secondary computer monitor, or on a conventional HDMI or SDI video monitor connected to a MOTU video interface such as the HD Express or HDX-SDI. The movie window can be easily popped in and out of the consolidated window, and the movie audio track can be routed to auxiliary faders for mixing and processing, without the need to extract the audio.

Digital Performer 8 is now shipping for OS X. The Windows version is in final testing and will be available soon to all registered users. Pricing for the full version remains at $795 on the MOTU online store. Users of competitive products can cross grade to Digital Performer 8 for $395. The previous version upgrade price is $195.
