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

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    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 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.

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

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    There are software programs that are taken in hand quickly and DP is one of

    install updated successively, but approval is simple

    Koike no dongle or whatever, so we can run it on multiple machines at the same time

    the manual is well done

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    G5 2x2, 5 to 4 GB Ram - 160 GB and 2 x 1250 Firewire For storage
    UAD 1 1 + 1 RME HSP 9652

    MACH 5, SOS, STYLUS ....

    there is no problem but I must admit having a lot of Plantade

    The software is very intensive mixing, management bus, Aux,
    It does not really go down very low buffer: I work at 128 K in buffer size, the logic or pedal!!

    The software is very intensive mixing, management bus, Aux,
    It does not really go down very low buffer: I work at 128 K in buffer size, the logic or pedal!!

    in monitoring logicel there is an effect on the phase byzarre entries, with a buffer size of 128 ... He finally c reboot fo desfois byzarre
    Forgot to put an EQ or koi in between, the latency will feel too

    Avoid bar and watching the resource is parcekelle proc tends to soar, let's say 2 or 3 ke Virtual Instrument, Kelker plug is the use of 8 bus Mixing + 2 rev in Aux and you are in the Red
    Kel Difference with Logic! the use of IV and the management of native plug the machine has nothing to do with DP c why I changed

    I would say that on the same machine I turned on 5 Stylus RMX Logic PD and 22 on the same machine!! all with 16 mix buses ...
    Comparison else ...?

    However once in the red I feel that the software application k'en head the power of the machine and after we can put him on the chin

    So it becomes cumbersome to use

    on the other hand gonna mix it in the back buffer is freeze the IV and you can forget the resource

    I use it before with a card Motu HD192 and I had the same problem

    Parcontre it can be used with any sound card kel and even use several different brand and what other software does k'aucun

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm using DP since version 2.72 on G4 400 Mac OS 9
    .... the best I could config native utilisbr />
    Motu has been able to manage the difficult transition to OS X this great software, it sounds more like the way: the audio engine is pasty is heavy, even the original plug, including the famous preamp does not sound like it since version he buzz and blast !!!!! something crazy
    the mixes sound more, lack of relief, aeration arriv I am no longer do as well as on OS 9 .. What happened to people even recognize the umd and know nothing!

    But this fucking app is the Best I say the best sequencer general market:

    I pass as beacoup people disappointed by motu on logic, but even if in resource management and logic of the machine is doing much better, it is no Audio shit!

    especially on the 4.6 software ergonomics has evolved, but it crashes often + ke logic and its audio engine is doubtful ... ke I know I made enemies by saying was, but I am disappointed the first, even in English this software is simple to use that logic in French!

    compared to + Logic:

    + Audio Montage
    + Management decision
    Management + audio (quantification tempo change, assembly, c simple logic is not pe!
    The audio pitch + c bluffing!
    + Automation and automatic tool change in the window
    Management + mixing
    Polar + ts simply sublime!
    + Midi plug in
    + Routing of buses to
    + Chunk live: a unique
    + The design automation
    + The use of IV multitimbral

    plenty of other stuff ...

    The Logic and more - DP
    + The management of the machine (there are no pictures!)
    + Plug nettenment of logic are better and sufficient in most cases
    - DP from the plug of the MW and moog filter means are
    Best + graphical user interface, and instant results of changes in apple (logical!)
    + Power save preset slice ca's great
    + Best Sound
    Arrangement + + + and software clear

    lots of other stuff too if you want to know more feel free mecrire

    Anyway ... DP I miss and I hope that version 5 will improve the stability and the audio engine, and it will be my pleasure to turn my thunderbolt Software mank me so much!

    The installation went normally. But it pares the drip pan is ca. especially if you're used to pro sequencers like Pro Tools, Nuendo / SX or Logic.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    G5 2x2.2GHz 1.5GB RAM and it works correctly. Snt trs performance limits. Eg the 32. Floating not know! The bounce in real time either so everything must be done in acclr of or decrease in quality of bounces. Especially if it's 44.1/16. To stay in the field, the bounce in batch is also unknown to the battalion so if you have 40 tracks in the project, everything must be done manually!
    In short, if you have time to lose, get DP

    3 months in spite of myself. Dja silent install it when I took this job. But I russi convince to go with Nuendo. The ratio quality / price is bad. The plant turns you into gas oprateur computer instead of your life easier!
    Repeat the same choice?! Nor is it going? still 3 months and I am a monk. Really what you dgoutter of making music.
