DOP — Direct Offline Processing Intro Video for 8.1

There is a good video that Steinberg has put together on DOP in 8.1 that gives a clear understanding of how it fundamentally works and many of the key features. The one done previously was lacking.

Here’s DOP in Nuendo 8.1…

It turns me off a bit though the way they worded part of it. It’s really not a new feature as a whole, but a mash-up of previous offline processing and offline process history, with some new functionality thrown into it. This whole “save CPU cycles” isn’t new, yet it’s played off as if it is. Yeah, I know, all of us already know it, but it just sounds a bit cheap to my ears.
