Digital Orchestrator Pro is a MIDI sequencer by Voyetra (now Voyetra Turtle Beach). Unlike their earlier DOS-based Sequencer Plus Gold, Digital Orchestrator Pro uses the simpler graphical-user interface of Windows. The program was originally written for Windows 3, but is forward compatible to Windows 95, 98, ME, and XP. However, it is not compatible with Windows 8, or higher.

The sequencer is quite versatile for such an early program; it has a sequence editor, event editor, and even a piano roll editor. It also has patch mapping for many popular keyboards and devices at the time such as the Roland MT-32. Note articulation and humanize options are also available. You can also transpose the pitch of any part of any MIDI track. The new ORC format allows one to record MIDI with digital audio. After installing the sequencer on a computer, it comes with tutorial videos on how to use Digital Orchestrator (narrated by Jeff Batter). The program also comes with example .MIDI files, and .ORC files which were used for Digital Orchestrator projects.

Digital Orchestrator Pro can import from Sequencer Plus SNG (Voyetra) format, General MIDI, MIDI files with an RMI header, WAV audio, and JAM and JDT files. It can save in its proprietary ORC format, type-1 MIDI and export to WAV audio.

Voyetra Turtle Beach maintains the copyright on Digital Orchestrator Pro, but refuses to sell it. A demo program was released, but new copies of the full version can no longer be obtained legally.
