MOTU Digital Performer 9 (Box) is a digital audio workstation featuring seven new plugins, a next-generation engine and plenty of improved graphics and expanded features. MOTU Digital Performer 9 is a complete music production and audio processing platform that facilitates recording, editing and mixing of anything with plenty of effects and customisation for mastering.
Digital Performer 9 comes equipped with the new MX4 MultiSynth 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 analogue emulation (included is a new EDM-inspired soundbank with 120 new presets).
Seven new plug-ins are also included, with MasterWorks FET-76 emulation of the 1176LN limiting amplifier (Revision D/E), a MultiFuzz model of the QuadraFuzz distortion kit, both MicroG and MicroB polyphonic octave generators, and the MegaSynth subtractive synth processor. Lastly a new Hardware Insert plug-in is included designed to bring your outboard gear into your DP effects chains.
Automation lanes in the Sequence Editor now allow you to display audio and MIDI automation data in separate lanes below each track for easier viewing and editing. Additionally a new spectral display in the Sequence Editor lets you view the spectral content of each audio track, side by side with their waveforms, directly in the Sequence Editor timeline with a colourful, informative visual representation of the frequency content of your audio material.
Retina display support lets you view DP's carefully crafted UI themes such as Carbon Fiber, Producer and the DP9 theme in incredible detail on the high image resolution of a Mac's Retina display. MusicXML export lets you extract your DP QuickScribe notation scores as a MusicXML file, which can then be imported into popular music notation applications like Finale and Sibelius.
