DP8 wins Key Buy Award
"If you're not a longtime user, stop reading and start downloading!" exclaims Keyboard magazine in their review of Digital Performer 8 in the September, 2013 issue. They're referring, of course, to DP8's new fully-functioning, 30-day demo download. Among the many new DP8 features and plug-ins Keyboard exalts, perhaps the most significant are 64-bit functionality on both Mac OS X and — for the first time ever — Windows. "DP8 is certainly a boon for those who prefer PCs to Macs for horsepower-per-dollar reasons."
Easy hardware setup
"I appreciate DP's easy hardware driver setup...In DP, you simply open a panel, command-click (Mac) or control-click (windows) on the drivers you need, and specify the master clock. Then, the additional I/O shows up as a choice in the track menu."
"In DP8, sorting plug-ins is about as flexible as can be."
"I don't know if I've ever heard a more flexible sonic thickener than MOTU's new Ensemble Chorus, whose left, right and center width controls let you fill the entire sound field with fat pulsating pads."
