Spark your creativity, then refine your mix — all in a singular workflow. Digital Performer 9 delivers inspirational features devised to ignite your creative muse, combined with state-of-the-art studio production technologies engineered for the most demanding, world-class recording and production environments.
The included MX4 now has a new sound bank. Developed by synth guru Erik Norlander, this exciting new soundbank spans the EDM sound spectrum, from deep house to neo disco to electro swing. You’ll find presets that inspire new directions, and with a little tweaking, define your unique sound. Browse dozens of basses, leads, pads, arps, sample & hold and rhythm blocks. These presets are a showcase for MX4 as a synth programming powerhouse.
There’s also five new plug-ins for DP9. From vintage compression to mega synthesis, you’ll use these plug-ins every day to take your productions from initial inspiration to final mastering. In addition to the new plugins, there’s Mix automation, which can add life to a flat mix, allowing it to breath with the musical ebb and flow of the track. Automation lanes display each type of automation data — volume, pan, plug-in settings like filter cutoff — in their own lane below the parent track, giving you the clarity you need to perfectly dial in your automated mix. Show as many lanes as you like. Display any type of automation data you wish, for audio tracks, instrument tracks and MIDI tracks.
Digital Performer 9 can display the spectral content of each audio track, side by side with their waveforms, directly in the Sequence Editor time line. Vertical position represents frequency; brightness represents intensity. This gives you a colorful, informative visual representation of the frequency content of your tracks within the context of surrounding tracks — and your entire mix. The Spectrogram display can be invaluable in helping you effectively balance and manage the frequency content of your mix over time. Choose from among a dozen compelling color schemes. For Mac users, Digital Performer 9 takes full advantage of your Mac’s Retina™ display, delivering stunning graphic resolution, clarity and color depth to your Digital Performer experience.
