At its most basic level, MESA allows graphic editing of every parameter in the new "S" Series samplers. The program comes with a variety of pre-configured control layouts so that you can be up and running immediately. MESA also includes a versatile Layout Editor that lets you design custom control layouts optimized for the exact way you work.

However, MESA is much more than just a graphic editor. With MESA you can create and edit programs and translate sounds from differnet audio file formats such as AIFF and SD2 (Mac version) and .WAV files (PC version).

MESA also includes a File Manager for saving, organizing and accessing sound data on a variety of external storage devices and a graphic Wave Editor for editing sound data as well as recording data from an audio CD in the Mac's internal CD ROM drive.

MESA's modular design makes it easy to update by simply adding a new product module to the appropriate folder. Newly supported products include the DPS12/DPS12i and DPS16 Digital Personal Studios.

MESA for the DPS12/DPS12i and DPS16 features complete control of all mixer parameters and transport controls. Also included is a MIDI dynamic automation recorder that allws you to graphically edit the automation data for each track independently, a MIX Scene manager, Beat Map manager and a Tempo manager. It's even possible to access the recorders basic setup properties such as timecode settings, sampler rate, etc.
