Edit and arrange MIDI and audio as musical phrases. Clips (phrases of MIDI or audio data) allow you to record, edit and arrange your track material easily and intuitively. Apply all of DP's powerful editing tools, such as split, trim, drag and drop, edge-edit, copy/paste and more. Want to loop a clip? Just drag out its right edge.

Stretch Audio. Manipulate audio like never before From precision editing of individual beats to global tempo changes, Stretch audio lets you manipulate audio faster and easier, with more control than ever before. Grab an individual audio beat to adjust its timing. The new Stretch Edit layer lets you precisely control anchor points to achieve exactly the feel you want.

ZTX PRO™ technology from Zynaptiq™ ensures the highest possible audio quality throughout.

Once beats are detected, you can fully manipulate them with DP's new Stretch Audio feature and industry-leading tempo adjustment features. Instantly conform your audio to the project's tempo and timeline. Apply tempo changes, even gradual ones that change over time.
