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!

Das Beste was die DAW Welt zu bieten hat!
Parayok, 05.04.2013
Egal was man gerade braucht, Pitch Correction, einen passenden Gitarren Verstärker oder verschiedenste Plug Ins um seine Aufnahmen zu bearbeiten. Digital Performer hat da was in petto, und das in einer ausgesprochenen guten Qualität. Uneingeschränkte Routingfunktionen im Midi und Audiobereich und auch das Editieren geht sehr leicht von der Hand. Auch das knapp 1000 Seiten dicke Handbuch steht einem immer zu Seite, hier kann sich so manch ein Hersteller noch eine Scheibe abschneiden. Weiter so MOTU!!!!!
