Digital Performer 8

GChuong, 15.10.2014
Thomann have been great by being the only place that offer this DAW with their own Educational discount which as student, I could not be more grateful!

A main point was that other DAW manufacturers have educational discounts for their software but can restrict how you use it i.e whether you can use music made in the software commercially or not.
MOTU don't offer such a discount, which again reflects well on Thomann for offering the full package without any restrictions, for a very good price.

The package itself arrived boxed(I actually expected it to be a download code) along with with 2 books and the CD. The 1st being a huge 991 page user guide (which you could easily pay £50+ to buy separately) and a small condensed start-up guide for quick reference. Note that should you buy this, there are serial codes on the front AND back pages of the User Guide which are needed to register!

I have bought from Thomann before and the quality of service has always been very high without any problems.



As a student studying music at uni, I wanted to get familiar with a more advanced and powerful DAW that I hope will serve me well throughout my life. Previously I was using Cockos' Reaper which is easily one of the best DAWs when it comes to price:quality.

2 main features I require from a DAW is to be intuitive with MIDI and allow one to work with videos in a relatively easy fashion.
This is where Digital Performer seemed to be the best solution. Using Windows also influenced the choice between Pro tools, Cubase and Digital Performer. Having checked out videos on each I decided that Digital Performer was best equipped for my needs.

I use mostly VSTi when writing and some live instruments which DP caters to very well. The chunks feature was a game changer in the way it makes navigating and merging sequences very simple.

Having only used this program for a week or so,combined with my previous experience with reaper, I can see that getting familiar with all the different features will take a while but well worth investing time into.

Overall very happy and satisfied with this order.

Thanks!

No matter what you need, Pitch Correction, a suitable guitar amplifier or a variety of plug-ins for editing your recordings. Digital Performer has something in store, and this in a very good quality. Unlimited routing functions in the midi and audio area and editing is very easy. Even the almost 1000-page thick manual is always a side, here many a manufacturer can cut a disk. Continue so MOTU !!!!!
