A little while ago, I posted a reviews of the new(ish) 6144 EQ and Envelope Reverb iOS audio effects apps from DDMF and developer Christian Siedschlag. Both of these are very capable audio processors in their own right but, given the desire from many iOS musicians to see the AU plugin format really take hold, the fact that both are also available as AU plugins only is also of considerable interest. Both apps worked very smoothly for me when used within AU hosts such as Cubasis and AUM.
Anyway, DDMF launched a further iOS AU audio processor app a couple of weeks ago; NoLimits… and you can read the full review here. The app is priced at UK£9.99/US$9.99 and is a limiter (surprise, surprise!) but you can also use it in the role of a maximiser (that is, to make your final mix a louder as part of a ‘mastering’ stage) and to add a little bit of analog-style warmth. The UI design has a definite ‘vintage hardware’ vibe to it and, like lots of boutique plugins on the desktop, this does suggest that’s the kind of sound DDMF are after.
Anyway, I really like how NoLimits sounds and, to celebrate the launch, Christian was kind enough to provide me with 10 copies of the app to give away here at the Music App Blog. The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this morning….. and the winners are:-
All the winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their prizes. Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)
Oh, and if you want to make sure you are entered for all the promo code giveaways that I run through the Music App Blog, then get yourself on the email newsletter list – and pick up your copy of our free ’25 apps’ guide :-)
NoLimits is a further port from DDMF from their desktop plugin collection (it is around US$34 on the desktop). Based on all these iOS ports so far, I really hope that others might follow. If you haven’t checked out the original reviews of either 6144 EQ or Envelope Reverb then do so…. both a very good and well worth a look. Here’s hoping the wiiners enjoy using the app but, if you didn’t get lucky this time around, read the full NoLimits review, watch the video below, and then hit the download button to find out more. Looks, and sounds, very cool…. NoLimits
The video below is based on the desktop versions of DDMF’s plugins… but worth a look as the basic operation is the same under iOS.
