MOTU Digital Performer 4
Installation without any problem,
on a G4 733 with 700MB of SDRAM, with a running OS X.3.2
The configuartion is no problem if we want to open the manual!
The manual is complete and in French trs.


With a G4 733 running round but must not ask too much ...
We need a more powerful computer and more RAM (1GB minimum) to extract the quintessence.
Finally I talk to use plugs type Machfive and effects on thirty tracks without syncope nervous ...

DP4 trs is available, complete (total automation, openness to plug via FXpansion VST and VSTi, midi hyper full audio tracks Unlimited except by the power of the machine interface AQUA enjoyable ...)

The hosts plugs are unfortunately too few, but of quality. The plugs imports from FXpansion (vst) do not rotate but it is always better.


I use it for a year and a DP for 5 years. I like this software and it makes me well (because I worth it?)
the sound is nickel, and the report Impressive qualitprix honnte trs (why pay more?)
APRS is it's so small software prfr it can no longer spare, but when I see Pro Tools studio shot I have no remorse!

MOTU Digital Performer 4
Problem-free installation, supplied with a manual Franais pais ... it's very practical.
Super simple setup


On an iBook G4 1Ghz and 740MoDDR, the software makes the most of my computer and I can use it everywhere, not like Pro Tools, ...
As against a small problem: there is not really intuitive manipulation to release a mix weaves in stro ... but it's not rocket science ... with the manual just has a quick and rponse RCIS.
Laurent DeWilde DP only uses for these electro albums ...


2 months of use and still no problem ... plugins are really well done and for the price, it is a good choice among the trs squenceur premium.
exprience with this choice I would do even if I plan to have ProTool will soon ... I find that to transport his computer and that's an advantage ...

MOTU Digital Performer 4
Installation nickel.
The French manual (almost 1000 pages ...) is happiness.


PowerBook G4
No problem
Must not overload plugs in, but OK for compo
stability ok


6 months of use
I previously worked in Cubase SX that I found quite good but a little dense graphic and definitely not to my liking in terms of audio engine.
I bought ProTools in parallel for compatibility but I think Digidesign drop the vampire as soon as I can (even for my studio pro). I am really angry with their marketing policy, their failure to follow their minds and unjustified monopoly.
I like the opening of DP and all MOTU products abroad. The possibilities of the gas plant are just awesome and the integration of Reason is a marvel of user-friendliness.
Music in the image (and component mix) is very flexible and precision pleasurable.
When I think of decision-heads I had with ProTools to make it work a bit with Reason, never again!
Now that the G5 is, I believe it is time to make smart choices ...
One downside: no way currently to create an insertion point in the virtual mix out via the audio interface and return (eg to insert a compressor or EQ physics) ... a function of ProTools handy for possessing the outboard.
There is always the possibility to route the output of the track on the audio interface, to insert the external re-enter on another track ... a bit tedious but it has the advantage of managing the gain posted in the said outboard ... to follow.
The price / quality ratio is unbeatable and ogling the side of Unisyn if you have any synths.
I would definitely do it again this election and I am even ready to make the promotion of this great product.

MOTU Digital Performer 4
Installation nikel, put nice day 4.6.1.
Incompatibility is not even surprising!
It just happens, and the manual and well done, good "help"


IBook G4 1ghz 768 M-audio 1814

DP works superbly well, it requires little CPU compartment has Pro Tools.

Plug-ins home are terrible, especially the MW and the LORD preamp super efficient.


I use it for a year, it is beautiful that logic months or cubase, but it is for sound and no image
The cool thing is that unlike Pro Tools, IT HAS NO DONGLE TO THE CON THAT WHEN THE FORGOTTEN YOU ARE WRONG! (And j'inciste!)

Price level quality, unbeatable, go find a cheaper squenceur as good as DP 4.6?

After, which is very practical in the long run, but not very intuitive for people who come in Cubase: this tool palettes running around and having fun window hide and seek, and drag n drop and company!

I would do the choice of tomorrow!

PS: This is the software used the Universit de Montral. I had classes on DP and c'tait terrible!
