    <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="http://cdn.mos.musicradar.com/images/Computer%20Music/178/ddmf-metaplugin-2-200-70.2-460-100.jpg" width="200" alt=""></p> <p><strong>Christian Siedschlag is the founder of plug-in developers DDMF, the company behind apps like IIEQPro, LP10 and Metaplugin. Computer Music caught up with him recently to chat about his background and get geeky about EQ.</strong></p> <h4>What did you do before DDMF? And what does DDMF stand for?</h4> <p class="MsoNormal">"I was in research for quite a while. I did a PhD in atomic physics and actually learned programming by simulating the behaviour of atoms and electrons. But I found that the academic environment was not for me in the long run, and I was in the lucky position to have a former hobby project (DDMF) that had, in the span of four or five years, grown to a point where I could make a living from it. </p> <p class="MsoNormal">"I never gave the name much thought, to be honest... an old nickname of mine was 'DocDued', so I simply called it DocDued's Music Factory. There you go!"</p> <h4>Your initial business model was donationware, ie, 'pay what you like'. Now you've settled on affordable fixed prices. Why the change?</h4> <p class="MsoNormal">"The donationware model was definitely very well received, and as long as I only had IIEQPro and LP10 on sale, the average price was almost $15! But then I found that this price declined proportionally to the number of products I offered, so when I had six products, the average price had gone down to $5. People still paid the same total amount but got more for the money, which, unfortunately, is not a good way for a small company to grow."</p> <h4>DDMF is well-known for its excellent equalisers. What do you see for the future of EQ plug-ins?</h4> <p class="MsoNormal">"I think we will see mainly improvements in handling and interaction. The 'clean' part of EQ DSP design is pretty much covered now, but there's still room for nonlinear behaviour. And I think EQs that adapt themselves in an intelligent way to the material at hand could be an interesting direction, like a 'master EQ' that acts on several tracks and decides what to boost or to cut in order to make the whole thing sound as good as possible."</p> <h4>What's the biggest misunderstanding when it comes to EQ plug-ins?</h4> <p class="MsoNormal">"I think a few years ago it was very easy to take a stock-standard algorithm, slap a nice GUI on it and sell it for a premium price. Users have become much more critical now, and I like to see DDMF as a part of the development. </p> <p class="MsoNormal">"So the general level of education concerning EQs is pretty high now, and indeed, people have used tools like Christian Budde's plug-in analyser to find that the frequency responses of many EQs can be made to look pretty identical. One should be a little careful because the ear is more sensitive than the eye, and nonlinearities are not discovered in that way. But yeah, never underestimate the power of psychoacoustics!"</p> <h4>What's next from DDMF?</h4> <p class="MsoNormal">"Well, I've mentioned the vocoder so many times it's become sort of a running gag, but I still want to do it! Then, a modular delay à la <a href="http://www.musicradar.com/gear/all/computers-software/plug-in-fx/metaplugin-2-2-541739/review">Metaplugin</a> (where delay lines aren't possible for design reasons) with the possibility to load third-party plug-ins into any feedback line. </p> <p class="MsoNormal">"Also I'm investigating the possibilities of EQ'ing only certain parts of the stereo field, like 'a little less mid-range between 12 and 3 o'clock'. I've also started to explore the mobile world, which is a different animal but highly interesting and fun nonetheless."</p> <a href="http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/meet-the-programmers-ddmf-555200">Read more about Meet the programmers: DDMF at MusicRadar.com</a><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/673/f/8601/s/21e7e3f9/mf.gif' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="http://share.feedsportal.com/viral/sendEmail.cfm?lang=en&title=Meet+the+programmers%3A+DDMF&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Ftech%2Fmeet-the-programmers-ddmf-555200" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/emailthis2.gif" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="http://res.feedsportal.com/viral/bookmark.cfm?title=Meet+the+programmers%3A+DDMF&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Ftech%2Fmeet-the-programmers-ddmf-555200" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/bookmark.gif" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/139262747311/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/21e7e3f9/kg/327-335/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/139262747311/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/21e7e3f9/kg/327-335/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/139262747311/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/21e7e3f9/kg/327-335/a2t.img" border="0"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/musicradar/all/news/~4/zsSxx9KSlGY" height="1" width="1"/>
