MOTU on Tuesday said that
Digital Performer 5, the company’s high-end audio application, is now shipping. Among other changes in the new version, Digital Performer now includes six instrument plug-ins.
Bundled with Digital Performer, new virtual instruments include BassLine (a one oscillator, two-waveform monophonic bass synth); PolySynth (a polyphonic synth that harkens back to the classic Roland Juno 106); Modulo (provides endless possibilities for analog synth sounds); NanoSampler (load a sample and play it; add filter, LFO and/or envelope); Model 12 (a twelve-part drum module); and Proton (a two-operator frequency modulation (FM) synthesizer).
Digital Performer 5 also added track folders, a Meter Bridge feature, new audio editing tools, a variety of new film scoring features, new input monitoring modes and clip-based volume automation.
While this version is not Intel-native, MOTU told MacCentral previously that an Intel version of Digital Performer 5 would be available in the second quarter of 2006.
