MOTU learning: DP clips and tips, film scoring in free bundled Performer Lite – CDM Create Digital Music

the team at motu s'been busy inna past weeks, posting some in-depth webinars on production. some feature the flagship dp10 daw, course, but there are some gr8 tips for the m-series audio interface and its free perelder lite, too.

make a film score in perelder lite

perelder lite replaces motu’s old entry-lvl audiodesk as “that free audio software motu bundles with their audio interfaces.”

here’s the difference – you’re far + likely to use perelder lite, n'it’s way + modern.

i’ve routinely explained that pt of why dp is still a thing s'dat it’s absolutely be♥d by pplz scoring video, and its competitors can’t quite match its features. the surprise is, perelder lite introduces a lotta those primordials. so if you’re pondering dp or gettin + heavily into scoring, here’s a free way t'get goin – with software you mite already own.

(i know a lot o-u got those excellent m-series audio interfaces – i finally broke down and bought an m4 myself, even with some other audio boxes round, and twas hard, cause twas sold out. so yeah – you’ve got this software, even if you didn’t touch it b4.)

motu has gettin started perelder lite videos, but let’s skip straite to watching the cool stuff it can do from start-to-finish making a movie soundtrack:

if you’re in a long lockdown that hasn’t ended or entering a new lockdown or wandaing wha’ else you can do with yr ♫ skills – now’s a gr8 time t'get into this kind of scoring.

also, you know, humpback whales!

now who on tube dared down-vote star trek iv?!


daws are finally catching onna the idea of nonlinear clip launching. (*i’ll cutout out cakewalk some yrs ago, as i think even among its usrs twasn’t so widely used.)

dp’s implementation is really sharp, n'it doesn’t just feel like ableton live mashed into dp – though as a lotta dp usrs probably do use a'bitto live, you’ll feel at home. instead, you get a motu-style take onna concept, and inna context of dp’s unique production tulz and scoring-friendly markers and wha’not. and this stands toe to toe w'da recent addition of clips to apple’s logic pro – but without requiring you to switch to logic if you don’t like it.

last week, they gave us a view of how t'work with it. and crucially, this is as motu always is friendly to working with video, scoring, and even features like varying tempo in sophisticated ways. + you can work witha ton of advanced features, multi-triggering, chunks, and a workflo that seamlessly gets back to linear arrangement when you need it.

the video and chunk features alone are things you don’t really get anywhere else – including in bitwig studio, ableton live, or apple logic pro. there’s a reason we ‘ve so many daws, basically.

daws are also all pretty elder at this point when it comes to time stretching and groove quantize, but differ on subtler points. so dp is also pretty specific in how it works with time stretching, on-the-fly quality changing, working w'da waveform editor, and specific quantization tek knicks.

so there’s a lot in this video, too. i’m reΨed that i’m not a clinician, so i sure learned plenty.

plenty + on their channel.…

‘ve fun. and motu, really, you ‘d bring back mark of the unicorn as yr name. doesn’t everybody ♥ unicorns now?
