this Friday and so far, I'm very pleased with this release. From the new window layout to the ability to go straight to mp3 through LAME and some nice drums samples & sounds on the Extra disc.

If I have a drum sample that isn't labelled beats per minute, is there any other way of telling BPM besides guestimating?
I'm using Digital Performer 4.5 on a Mac.

Trim your sample (I'm assuming it's a loop?) very carefully into exactly a one bar soundbite.
Select the soundbite and choose "Set Soundbite Tempo" from the audio menu.
In the "length" pane enter the length of the loop in beats i.e. 4|000 for a bar of 4/4.
DP will calculate the tempo.
after working in PT for over a year now it's become really apparent how unelegant DP is in handling audio and how unelegant PT is at handling MIDI.
