A professional choice for film scoring, post production, and music recording

Since 1990, MOTU’s Digital Performer has been a staple of the film and music production industry — and for good reason! From its straightforward, tape-style recording layout to its advanced MIDI implementation and scoring capabilities, few other DAWs can claim as comprehensive a feature set as Digital Performer.

Build full arrangements with a 5GB instrument library

DP10 is loaded with content — 5GB to be exact. This gargantuan sound library includes multi-sampled acoustic instruments, synths, loops, and phrases with over 300 different instruments, 1,100 instrument presets, and 500 loops. Build full arrangements with acoustic and electronic drum kits, pianos, guitars and basses, church organs, electric organs, strings, brass, woodwinds, synths, ethnic instruments, choirs, voices, percussion, sound effects, and more. Composers and arrangers will appreciate the versatility of this collection. It covers the full gamut of musical genres, eras, geographical regions, and cultures.

Stretch Audio powered by Zynaptiq ZTX PRO technology

Digital Performer 10 includes a powerful Stretch edit layer, powered by Zynaptiq’s acclaimed ZTX PRO. Drag individual beats and their anchor points to make precision adjustments. Or enable Stretch Audio on a per-track basis for global tempo control, and the entire audio track will conform to your project’s tempo and timeline — instantly. You can even make gradual tempo changes over time. ZTX PRO provides high-quality time stretching and pitch shifting, even at extreme settings.

Live triggering and looping with the Clips window

DP has always been a top-shelf DAW, but with version 10, it’s also a full-fledged performance instrument. Effortlessly drag and drop audio and MIDI clips from the content browser into Clips window cells, then trigger and loop them in real time. Deliver engaging interactive live performances or reap the benefits of instantaneous, on-the-fly inspiration while creating your music.
