DP3 is rock solid, love the look and the feel of the layout. Recording audio is really easy (don't record Midi so I don't have any opinions)sort of compares to Pro Tools, but not as easy. It blows away Cubase and is better than Logic and Pro Tools. I have always been a fan of Logic but will probably stop using it now that I have DP3. The effects are awesome and have about everything you could ask for out of the box. I will mainly be using it to record scratching so the effects will definitely come in handy. I am very pleased with my purchase and don't have any big complaints yet. Version 3.1 will be coming out soon (free download I was promised) so it will only get better.

The best, that's it, nothing more to say. In L.A. it's the standard tool of the studio pros - that says a lot by itself. By the way, I'm writing this on my Intel PC which is on my desktop for business apps, but I love the fact that right across the room is that nice, friendly Mac which is the heart of my midi setup. I can't believe that, after all these years, people are still so polarized about PC's and Macs. Grow up folks, buy one of each!

I've recorded over 60 songs using Digital Performer and about the same number with Performer. I've been a Performer user since 1988 when I was using version 2.0. This is a great sequencer. Everything is logically laid out and you can customize it to your heart's content. I upgraded to Digital Performer when it was version 1.7 and I had it running on a Quadra 700. I had 4 audio tracks running concurrently and it was enough back then. MOTU deserves praise for making each upgrade a worthy one. I am extremely hesitant in upgrading my stuff unless I deem the upgrades worth it. MOTU gives you something to crave for with each upgrade, such as new audio plug-ins or the new MIDI timing accuracy stuff or Mackie HUI support. Now I have a MOTU 2408, MOTU MicroExpress, and tons of cool stuff hooked up to those two devices.

I was very hesitant in buying Waves Native Power Pack after using the L1 extensively with Sound Designer II on my Quadra with a Digidesign Audiomedia II card. In fact, the L1 was the main reason why I kept my Quadra 700 for a while. I finally plopped down $320 and bought Native Power Pack and never looked back. It works great with Digital Performer 2.5+ so I'm very happy with this combo.

If it wasn't for Performer and Digital Performer, a tinkerer like me could not make great music.
