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 last week; 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 has been kind enough to provide me with 10 copies of the app to give away here at the Music App Blog. As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.
You can enter the draw in one of two ways.
- First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Monday, February 27th, 2017. Make sure to enter ‘NoLimits’ in the message subject line.
- Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)
As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.
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. Otherwise, read the full NoLimits review, watch the video below, and then hit the download button to find out more. Looks, and sounds, very cool…. Oh, and don’t forget to get your name in the hat :-)
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.
