MX4™ Mega MultiSynth with new EDM soundbank
Meet the 64-bit instrument plug-in powerhouse for your Digital Performer desktop. Inspired by legendary subtractive synthesizers, MX4 combines several core synthesis techniques in a unified, hybrid synthesis engine that delivers fresh and vintage sounds alike. As you explore its many banks and hundreds of presets, you’ll soon rely on MX4 as your “go-to” instrument. Fat basses, nasty leads, analog pads, vintage electronica — it’s all at your fingertips and conveniently saved with your DP projects for instant recall.
MasterWorks FET-76™ The 1176LN peak limiter reborn
Digital Performer’s spot-on emulation of the classic 1176LN compressor includes all the quirks of the revered D/E revisions, including “all buttons” mode for absolute slamming, when needed.
MultiFuzz™ Craig Anderton’s QuadraFuzz reborn
There’s no fuzz box quite like Craig Anderton’s seminal QuadraFuzz™ — except DP9’s new MultiFuzz™, which faithfully reproduces the unique fuzz tones of the original hardware kit from the 70’s.
MegaSynth™ Turn your guitar into a synthesizer
MegaSynth combines polyphonic octave generation with flexible signal routing, envelopes, LFOS, a pattern generator and macros. Input your guitar — or any signal — and let the synthesis mayhem begin!
MicroG™ Polyphonic octave generator for guitar
MicroG is a subtractive synth processor that emulates polyphonic octave generators (POGs) streamlined for guitar. Try it on vocals, instruments or any type of signal for truly unique effects!
MicroB™ Polyphonic octave generator for bass
Tuned for bass guitar, MicroB lets you get your Funkadelic on, with that classic bass sound from the 70’s made popular by Parliament. But that’s just the beginning with this synth processor.
