Digital Performer 7.2 Released


MOTU is now shipping Digital Performer 7.2, a free update for all DP7 users now available for immediate download. Here's all the details directly from their press release...
Version 7.2 adds new features and enhancements, including customizable UI Themes, which allow users to completely change the look and feel of Digital Performer's entire user interface with one click.
"Digital Performer is renowned for its carefully-crafted look and feel," said Jim Cooper, MOTU Director of Marketing. "So we didn't just put in a lightness/darkness slider or different shades of background color. Instead, DP users can choose from more than a dozen meticulously designed themes, which power-users can go in and tweak as much as they want. Buttons, knobs, and other controls can look completely different in each theme."
The supplied preset themes vary considerably, with names like "Carbon Fiber," "Zen," "Plasma," and "Producer." Users simply click a theme to apply an entirely different look to Digital Performer's appearance on screen. Four shades of DP's customary default look are also provided, from light to dark.
Themes such as "Classic" and "Carbon Fiber" span a wide range of lightness to darkness, while others, such as "Savannah," provide distinct hues that will appeal to users who prefer color.
Power users with basic Photoshop® skills can create their own themes by duplicating and modifying the factory-supplied themes, which are stored as standard .png graphic files in the Mac OS X Application Support folder. This gives users the flexibility to modify DP's look and feel without worrying that they are "hacking" the app in ways that might cause it to malfunction.
Users can also fine-tune waveform display colors and the color of audio level meters to carefully match their favorite theme.
Other new features introduced in Version 7.2 include right-click menu access and live searching in list windows.
Pricing and Availability:
Digital Performer 7.2 is now shipping and available as a free download to registered Version 7 users.
Price is $795. Price to upgrade from a competing product is $395.
