DP10 New Feature Highlights
Clips window – Drag and drop audio and MIDI clips from DP's new Content Browser into Clips window cells and trigger them in real time, interactively, for live performance or on-the-fly inspiration while creating new material.
Stretch Audio – Use the new Stretch edit layer in audio tracks to drag individual beats and their anchor points to make precision adjustments for exactly the right feel. For global tempo control, simply enable Stretch mode on a per-track basis and the entire audio track instantly conforms to the project tempo and time line, even with gradual tempo changes over time. ZTX PRO™ technology from Zynaptiq™ ensures the highest possible audio quality throughout.
Beat Detection 2.0 – Enhanced beat detection engine makes it easy to conform imported rhythmic audio to the project tempo by just dropping it into the track.
VCA faders – As with classic analog consoles of years past, VCA faders can control any number of tracks, precisely maintaining their relative volume. You can create as many VCA groups as you wish and even control VCAs with other VCAs to create multiple nested sub-groups. Mix automation can be applied to VCAs and sub-fader automation is maintained and scaled throughout.
MOTU Instruments soundbank – DP10 includes a 5 GB library of multi-sample acoustic instruments, synths, loops and phrases with over 300 different instruments, 1100 instrument presets and 500 loops. Included are acoustic and electronic drum kits, pianos, guitars and basses, along with church organs, electric organs, strings, brass, woodwinds, synths, ethnic instruments, choirs, voices, percussion, sound effects and more. This versatile collection of instruments spans musical genres, eras, geographical regions and cultural styles.
Scalable UI – Today's high-resolution computer displays have very small pixels, making things tiny and hard to see. In DP10, you can now simply press command-plus and command-minus (control-plus and control-minus on Windows) to scale DP's entire UI larger or smaller to achieve the perfect degree of clarity for your eye.
Streamlined Waveform Editor – DP10's Waveform Editor has been completely redesigned to provide a streamlined, all-in-one environment for down-to-the-sample waveform editing, precision beat editing, elastic audio stretching, pitch correction, embedded tempo map editing and more.
Run command – Gain instant access to any feature in Digital Performer by simply typing shift-spacebar to open the Run Command text bar. When you start typing, all features matching what you type instantly appear.
Programmable skip buttons — DP's main transports can now skip forward and backward by musical increments, such as one beat, or two bars, or four bars.
Region menu presets – Save and create presets for Region menu operations, so you can to recall commonly applied settings quickly and easily. Specific presets can be recalled with assigned keystrokes or with the new Run Command window.
Enhanced grid snapping – Choose relative or absolute grid snapping when dragging MIDI and audio. Alternately, Auto Grid Snap sets the grid resolution automatically so you don't have to think about it.
Alternate tool – To speed editing, DP now offers both a primary and alternate tool, which you can switch between using the 'x' key to edit more quickly in situations where you are rapidly changing between two different tools in the tool palette.
MIDI note display preferences – MIDI notes can be displayed with greater detail, including their MIDI note name, to quickly identify the pitch and on-velocity of each note at a glance.
