I'll wait till next update.
You are just collecting thread titles from Motunation. How about actually READING the posts you quote?
VEPro5 is working quite well in DP8. Check the first page of the first section, there's a thread about it posted by TooDamnHip.
The "sluggish performance" and "crashes" are not happening for everyone.
Some users are experiencing this, but not everyone. The "losing focus" problem? I'm not experiencing it myself, in DP8 on either my 2009 MacBook or my 2010 Mac Pro (both running Snow Leopard 10.6.8). Not saying it isn't happening, just that it isn't happening to everyone.
"Standard functions not working" - what do you mean by that? What "standard functions"? There is no post on Motunation with such a title.
If you mean standard transport controls, or opening and closing windows,
or record/playback - those all work fine.
The "vanishing audio files" problem happened to one user - no one else
could duplicate it. Turned out he solved it by repairing his permissions and trashing DP's preferences. The "memory problems" turned out to be
misinterpretation of a new usage meter in the Audio Performance window.
Some users have reported problems with Kontakt 4, and opening Kontakt 4
instruments in Kontakt 5. That is true. But again, not a universally reported problem.
Look, I'm not denying that DP8, version .0, is without some issues. Every single DAW has had problems with initial new releases, without exception.
And MOTU has always been very good about addressing issues, I have no doubt they will release an update to DP8 soon.
My point is, don't go saying "apparently everyone are getting problems with DP8's stability". That is not true - I'm using it, and I'm not experiencing
much trouble with it at all.
