Note: Avid has announced the end of support for DAE mode in third-party applications such as Digital Performer and Logic. Digital Performer 7.22 is anticipated to be the final version of Digital Performer to support the use of DAE as the audio engine. For more information on Avid’s announcement, please see this Avid support document.
While Avid is bringing third-party DAE support to a close, they have opened third-party support for their Pro Tools|HD Native system. This allows you to run Digital Performer as a complete software front end for the Pro Tools|HD Native system and its audio interfaces. For more information, please refer to the Digital Performer DAE Guide.
