New Features in Digital Performer 9:
Now included with DP, MX4 is a powerful 64-bit virtual instrument plug-in featuring a hybrid synthesis engine that combines several forms of synthesis, including subtractive, wavetable, frequency modulation (FM), amplitude modulation (AM) and analog emulation. Included is a new EDM-inspired soundbank with 120 new presets.
Five new plug-ins
Meticulously crafted plug-ins include DP's new MasterWorks™ FET-76™ emulation of the classic 1176LN limiting amplifier (Revision D/E), MultiFuzz™ model of Craig Anderton's seminal QuadraFuzz™ distortion kit from the 70's, MicroG™ and MicroB™ polyphonic octave generators for guitar and bass, and the mind-blowing MegaSynth™ subtractive synth processor.
Automation lanes in the Sequence Editor
Display audio and MIDI automation data (volume, pan, plug-in settings, etc.) in separate lanes below each track for easier viewing and editing. Show and hide as many lanes as you wish.
Spectrogram display in the Sequence Editor
View the spectral content of each audio track, side by side with their waveforms, directly in the Sequence Editor timeline with a colorful, informative visual representation of the frequency content of your audio material.
Retina display support
View DP's carefully crafted UI themes like Carbon Fiber, Producer and the all-new DP9 theme in stunning detail on the exceptionally high image resolution of your Mac's Retina display.
Export your DP QuickScribe notation scores as a MusicXML file, which can then be imported into popular music notation applications like Finale™ and Sibelius™. QuickScribe's renowned notation transcription, along with dynamics and many other musical symbols, are preserved during the file transfer. Create Tracks command Add many tracks to your project in one step - even different types of tracks (MIDI, audio, aux, master faders, etc.) all at once.
Floating plug-in windows
Keep plug-in windows in front of all other DP windows. Set the floating preference globally or choose to float on a per-window basis.
MIDI Learn for audio plug-ins
Map knobs, faders and switches on your MIDI controller to audio plug-in parameters. Use Digital Performer's powerful Custom Consoles feature to access advanced programming for the connection.
Mute MIDI Notes
Use the Mute Tool to temporarily silence both audio regions and MIDI notes, including multiple selected notes.
Save text notes in your DP project, rather than a separate text document. Log production info, keep a To Do list, build up liner notes. More searching Find Markers, Chunks and plug-in preferences faster with newly added search fields.
