28th of October, 2019: the Plugindoctor is now ready to examine two plugins at once! While the already built-in graph storage function was certainly very helpful when comparing the response of two different plugins, DDMF has received numerous requests to allow for simultaneous examination of two audio plugins at the same time. With today’s release of the new version 1.3, this feature has now been added to the Doctor! Download the latest version and start to compare any two audio plugins in real time. I’m sure this new option will deepen your understanding of the inner workings of your favourite audio algorithms even further.
2nd of June, 2019: a brand new plugin has entered the building: welcome MagicDeathEye, a collaboration between Ian Sefchick and DDMF. An ultrasmooth variable-mu tube compressor that has so far only been available in hardware format is now ready to be used in your DAW. It’s been quite a ride to emulate this baby, but the end result is well worth it!
4th of April, 2019: welcome v1.2.0 of Plugindoctor, now including a “Hammerstein” tab for in-depth harmonics analysis, plus the possibility to load a plugin and a hardware device at the same time for easier comparison… stay tuned for more great stuff coming from DDMF headquarters soon!
1st of January, 2019: New Year’s here, sale’s over! Thanks to everyone who joined the DDMF family or stocked up on their license packages. I’m sure you will all put your new toys to good use in 2019! All the best to everybody, take care, and stay tuned for loads of new developments from DDMF over the coming twelve months.
28th of December, 2018: it’s on! 40 % off everything, here and in the Apple store… treat yourself to some nice end-of-the-year goodies and start 2019 on a high note! All the best to our old and new customers!
26th of December, 2018: Christmas is behind us, which means it’s almost time now for the annual DDMF End-of-the-Year sale! This year, you’ll have four days to shop ’til you drop, with an insane 40 percent reduction off everything, including all bundles. Just thinking about the price per plugin in a Full Bundle reduced by 40 percent brings tears to my eyes, but, alas, those are the rules, customer’s king here at DDMF headquarters. So if you’re looking to stock up on some of the finest audio software before the dawn of 2019, this is your chance!
31st of October, 2018: Metaplugin v3.2.0 has been released. This new version now has a total of 16 stereo output buses in the instrument version which should satisfy all requirements regarding multibus synth plugins like Kontakt etc. In addition, Metaplugin now uses 64 bit internal processing if your DAW supports this (VST/VST3/AAX only, AU might come later at some point). Just like for IIEQPro recently, RTAS has been discontinued for Metaplugin, due to the increasingly impossible task to provide the necessary backwards compatibility (mainly in the quickly evolving OSX environment). The previous 3.1.5 version will of course be kept available.
At the same time, Plugindoctor has been updated to v1.1.3. The new version features a sweep function in the “Harmonics” section for analysis of both the fundamental response and the THD as a function of frequency (giving more insight into the nonlinear behaviour of a plugin), and a waveshaping analysis tool in the “Oscillator” section. Of course, a few stability issues have also been ironed out. Already added in the previous update: scrolling and zooming using your mouse wheel (+Ctrl for zooming). Have fun!
19th of September, 2018: IIEQPro v3.4.0 is out! Featuring a brand new GUI designed by Pavel Zolin, VST3 support and a (theoretically) unlimited number of additional frequency spectrums in the multitrack section, this release will further solidify this EQ’s position among the very best of today’s software EQs. Bad news for RTAS users though: to keep up with the latest developments, IIEQPro is now the first in line of DDMF plugins for which RTAS support has been discontinued, and slowly but surely, the rest of the bunch will follow. Previous versions will remain available, of course, but to get your hand on the latest and greatest, this might be the time to finally update to AAX.
7th of June, 2018: Plugindoctor v1.0.8 has been released, now with hardware analysis support! Just attach a piece of outboard gear with send and return channel to your audio interface, select the corresponding in- and outputs in PD’s settings, and enjoy the same thorough analysis that so far has been only available for plugins. Additional new feature: more than one curve can be stored for easy comparison, and not only in linear analysis, but also in harmonic analysis mode.
