Our beloved DP is now in version 6, with several interface enhancements and new operation features. Film composers should be kept busy with the new scoring features, like new supported project frame rates and visual cues directly through DV output. Integration with Final Cut Pro is now a reality – and the interface seems to be brighter, using a whiter gray and colorful waveforms (Pro Tools-like), maybe to accommodate the enhanced Pro Tools HD hardware support.
According to MOTU: “Digital Performer 6 offers new features, enhanced operation and improved performance at all levels, from hundreds of small enhancements driven by user requests to major new features and plug-ins that add unprecedented value. Features like track comping will transform your everyday work, while industry-leading features like DP6′s new Final Cut Pro integration could very well transform the way film scoring is done. If you are an existing DP user, upgrade today to discover the many enhancements you’ve been waiting for. If you are new to Digital Performer, there has never been a better time to try DP.”
