    DP 4.5 is Out!

    Beat detection, ADC, single-window workflow, etc. Very nice.

    wow...timing is everything....

    the question is, when will it actually ship?

    MOTU has a habit of announcing something, then the actual ship date is 1-4 months later.

    hopefully it will ship immediately, and without any bugs...I don't think MOTU can afford to drop the ball on this release, as a lot of people have abandoned ship...hopefully Apple has given them a wake up call to be more innovative, and competitive.

    I agree with Sharmy, nice looking update but not enough to get me back. One thing that did catch my eye however was the consolidated window....that actually looks pretty cool and I would prefer it to having to deal with multiple windows. Logic's quick screenset recall works well, but I still would prefer a less cluttered desktop look.

    Well, i for one am encouraged by this announced update. we'll see when it actually ships-someone on the motu list said 3 weeks-but we'll see. one of the recent dp updates was about nine months in coming. let's hope they sped up the GUI.

    also, i hope the new features are implemented as implied, unlike recent additions such as the "instrument track" and "freeze" that i don't think were real improvements in the way they were implemented. those are just "me too" features on a spec list, that don't enhance workflow like they should, imo.

    can't wait for delay compensation tho, now that i got a UAD card. and if it really works with ProToools now, that's HUGE.

    Funny timing tho, that can't be accidental.

    peace,

    Yeah, futzing with windows wastes a lot of time for me, so the consolidated window is huge. Think I'll get a UAD-1 card (AFTER DP 4.5 ships) for the hardware emulations. Also hope the beat detection function works well. Heck, I am not even that fond of Recycle, as it seems to require too many tweaks on material other than clean drum/percussion grooves.

    Waiting with anticipation

    I was wondering when this was going ot happen. First a Sonar 4 was announced and almost immediately afterward SX3 was announced. Then yesterday Logic 7 and today DP 4.5. It makes me wonder if we'll get to do this all over again in a little over year (knowing cakewalk, I'll probably end up upgrading to sonar 5 next fall )
