Does anyone know anything about MOTU Digital Performer? What's it's interface like/what makes it stand out (if anything)

I'm curious sinceI'm thinking of taking this course in Midi music production for school next year http://www.shoreline.edu/music/midi.asp
and they seem to use it as their main DAW there.

dp is more geared towards the professional/educational crews. like people in the classical world who have to do mixing love it. and video editors who have to do audio editing stuff like that. i used it back when i was at school and writing classical music. it's a great program through and through.

Yeah, I've taken classes in DP and I know a lot of schools use it.

I don't really like it, personally. It's a good program, as stated above, but christ the damn GUI looks like it's a program from 1995. It bugs the hell outta me.

Some places offer courses using Reason and Pro Tools. I know in the DP Class I took we also used Reason, which made it far more tolerable.

1. So I'm trying to make a rise to drive tension and push my track along during the verse changes. Making the actual rise isn't the problem, but I can't seem to get it to sound right... How many octaves above the lead should I make it? I'm thinking Genesis's rise... that little high pitched one that drives the track along....

Also if my song is written in Eb/D# major Then should my rise be in key? and go up one octave and land on that same lead note...? So start in Eb1 for example and end in Eb2? How do you guys do it?

mod&op - untitled,unmastered 6copy1.mp3

It's pretty bare bones right now but you can get the idea of where it's going...



hey man, how are you getting the synth sound that comes in at like .46 seconds into your track. like the second synth sound introduced. i've been trying to get that sound for a while and can't figure it out. seems like i've read you use ableton? i'm using reason. any help is greatly appreciated. anyone else can help too.

btw the track sounds pretty dope so far.

Ah, I was wondering about that, they've talked about using Reason Ableton and protools as well but they seem to be mainly concerned with MOTU.

There's an recording and audio production program where they use pro tools, though these midi programs seem more geared towards electronic music production since they have courses in synthesis and sequencing, though they also talk about your potential career opportunities such as a jingle writer or midi engineer so I could see how it could be geared towards the classical side of things.

I'm planning on going over there some time so I can see what they're doing. Either way it looks like a worthwhile learning experience.

found out the coolest shit ever yesterday. turns out abletons eq8 has a built in feature that adds an "extreme" option to any filter if you simply add another band with the exact same settings. so 1 hpf is 12db, 2 is 24, 3 is 36 and etc. i tested it against fabfilters pro-q in maximum latency linear phase mode and while the slope didnt turn out exactly as steep as fabfilters, it sounded identical. good enough for me.

It's just a sample. But I sat down to re make it from scratch and its' pretty easy.

so start off with a square wave... automate the pulse width and the master tuning... i did a few of them in diff octaves and layerd them... sounds all crazy... play a note for a bar. the cut it up into midi and sequence.

Edit: Sorry just realized how insanely not helpful that post would be if you didn't know what I was talking about hahah PM me if you want some extreme detail. There is also a lot of processing after the initial sound is created. There's reverb, and distortion on it, automated compression... and a gate.

at that price i'd def say yes. my first pair was a pair of rokit6's and i'd say they were pretty good to learn on! they're crisp and nice sounding but they definitely color the sound, alot. so my one big big suggestion to you would be to listen to TONS of music on them that you're familiar with so you can have a good reference point.
