MOTU Digital Performer 5 [MAC]
New in DP5:
For song writing, studio production, film scoring, live performance, remixing, post production and surround mixing, Digital Performer delivers advanced features in an intuitive, streamlined design. Whether you’re completing a surround DVD, or you just want to write a song and burn a CD or MP3 file, Digital Performer gets you there quickly with elegance and ease. And Version 5 adds six new virtual instruments, plus dozens of innovative new features to keep you on the cutting edge of desktop music production.
Load your own samples or program custom sounds. You get two one-oscillator subtractive synths, one two-oscillator subtractive synth, a sample player, a drum module and an FM synth. Get ready to crank out some serious sound from your Mac. All six instruments are designed for easy, streamlined operation and CPU-efficient performance. If you've never used instrument plug-ins before, get ready for some heavy-duty fun. If you're a seasoned virtual instrument user, dive in and don't forget to come up for air.
New DP5 Instruments:
BassLine™ is an analog-style monophonic bass synth. Don't let the size and straightforward design fool you: BassLine puts out monstrous low end.
PolySynth™ is a retro analog-style polyphonic pad synth inspired by the Roland Juno 106 and other one-oscillator analog synths from the '80s.
Modulo™ is a highly programmable 2-oscillator subtractive synth. It's like BassLine and PolySynth combined, on steroids (and other performance-enhancing drugs).
As its name implies, Nanosampler™ is, quite simply, the easiest way to play samples ever devised. Load a sample and play it. Easy.
Model 12™ is a twelve-part programmable drum module (sample player). Instant drums. Hundreds of drum samples. Dozens of kits. Load and go. It's as simple as that.
Proton™ is the sixth and final instrument plug-in included with DP5. Proton is an imaginative and provocative two-operator frequency modulation (FM) synthesizer that delivers classic, bright, shimmering and expressive FM synth sounds that serve as a perfect compliment to the rest of DP5's new instrument lineup.
