DP8 is now shipping
DP8 is now shipping! Many initial orders will be arriving on doorsteps over the next few days. You can order your upgrade from motu.com by logging in and visiting the "My Registrations" link or by going to the motu.com store. DP8 is a must-have upgrade if you own — or are moving to — a 64-bit computer system. Plus, there are many inspiring new plug-ins, intriguing UI themes, and useful features you'll use every day.
Version 8 ships with 17 new plug-ins, including two new classic guitar amp models, a bass cabinet model, several classic guitar pedals, modeled analog delay, a multi-band dynamic equalizer, a precision delay, a de-esser, the Subkick™ kick drum enhancer, and Springamabob™, a modeled vintage spring reverb processor.
DP8's new video engine allows full-screen viewing of full 720 or 1080 HD video clips on a primary or secondary computer monitor, or on a conventional HDMI or SDI video monitor connected to a MOTU video interface such as the HD Express or HDX-SDI. The movie window can be easily popped in and out of the consolidated window, and the movie audio track can be routed to aux faders for mixing and processing, without the need to extract the audio.
Digital Performer's Themes allow users to change the entire look of the software with one click. DP8 adds 15 new themes, including "Hi-Fi", "Arctic", and "None More Black".
