MOTU releases Digital Performer 10.1 with major new features

MOTU

MOTU has released Digital Performer 10.1, a free update for all DP10 owners with dozens of new features, including Clips in Tracks, Clip Recording, Real-time and Off-line Stem Bouncing, Retrospective MIDI Record, workflow enhancements and performance optimizations.

Clips in Tracks and Clip Recording
Clips (phrases of MIDI or audio data) allow users to record, edit and arrange track material easily and intuitively. Users can apply all of DP's powerful editing tools, such as split, trim, drag and drop, edge-edit, copy/paste and more. To loop a clip, just drag out its right edge. Double-click to open the Clip Editor for precise hands-on control. Use the Pack and Unpack commands to create a clip from existing data or extract data from a clip. Clip Record mode lets users trigger clips in the Clips window and then capture their entire performance into tracks for playback and editing. Users can also record directly into new, blank clips as inspiration strikes.

Real-time and Off-line Stem Bouncing
Digital Performer 10.1's Bounce to Disk feature now allows users to batch export audio stems and mixes faster than ever with both real-time and faster-than-real-time (off-line) mixdown operations. Users can bounce multiple tracks and/or outputs in a single operation for fast, convenient delivery of stems for their productions. The "Bounce Includes Audio Patch Thru" option even allows for real-time capturing of audio returns from external sources, such as a hardware reverbs, hardware synths or Vienna Ensemble Pro instruments.

Retrospective MIDI Record
Digital Performer 10.1 is always capturing MIDI input, even when its main transports are not actually recording — or even completely stopped. Users can immediately recall material they've recently played at any time. For example, a user might experiment with musical ideas, playing their MIDI controller, and afterwards decide to place the performance into a track to permanently capture it. If the performance was played with the transport stopped, Digital Performer can even tempo analyze the performance and conform it to the project tempo. Almost like magic, Digital Performer frees creativity and ensures that precious, fleeting creative moments are never lost.

Enhanced MIDI editing
Note velocities can now be quickly altered with the new Velocity Tool. For overall enhanced viewing, note-on and note-off velocities are now displayed with larger icons, muted notes appear more clearly, non-active automation data types appear translucent, and optional note duration tails appear next to velocity handles.

Additional feature highlights:

  • 23 new drum kits for Model12 — Expanded drum kit offerings include acoustic stick, brush, rod and mallet kits, plus ten new electronic kits from popular vintage drum machines. Bonus kits include Fuji Bicycle Kit, LA Trailer Production Kit, Radio FX Kit, Chips Kit and More Cowbell Kit.
  • Memory Cycle and Auto Record strips — Loop the main transports and set punch-in and punch-out points visually with dedicated strips above the timeline.
  • Color-coded chunks — Assign a custom color to each chunk using the standard color picker.
  • Duplicate command — Quickly repeat the currently selected time range or object, such as a MIDI note, soundbite or clip.
  • Enhanced scrolling — Scroll graphic editors smoothly and precisely, vertically and horizontally in a single gesture with the new Hand tool.
  • Faster zooming — Use pinching gestures on a laptop's track pad — or a mouse scroll wheel — to zoom graphic editors, both vertically and horizontally.

Price:

  • Full version: $499 USD (street price).
  • Competitive upgrade: $395 USD.
  • Performer Lite upgrade: $395 USD.
  • AudioDesk upgrade: $395 USD.
  • Upgrade from previous version of DP: $195 USD.
