A sister app of Triumph, Audiofile's pioneering audio editor and post-production tool, Triumph DDP allows you to load, examine and playback DDP (Disc Description Protocol) filesets. Whether you're a mastering engineer or band member previewing your next release, Triumph DDP provides convenient and reliable DDP listening. Also included in Triumph DDP is a useful database of audio mastering studios around the globe.
Triumph DDP is a 100% free app developed by Audiofile, an industry-leading, boutique technology company creating apps to power the world's musicians and engineers.
What's New in Version 2.1.1
Triumph DDP 2.1.1 improves performance.
Outdated and clunky
The first thing I saw when I opened this app was a pop-up warning message, which read:
""Triumph DDP" May Slow Down Your iPhone
The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility."
...We're off to a great start here, aren't we?
Previewing a DDP also requires you to first plug your device in and upload a ZIP file through iTunes, which is incredibly cumbersome (and disappointing, as I already deliver DDPs to clients via Dropbox and Google Drive and was expecting - not hoping, expecting - to be able to import files from cloud storage).
The How-To-Use button on the home screen of the app just opens a page in Safari. Not even a built-in browser, nor does it even ask if you're okay with opening in Safari. Lazy.
Didn't bother looking at the feature for finding mastering studios, but I wouldn't expect much better from it. (And if I have gotten far enough to have a DDP already to preview in this app, would I really still be looking for a mastering house? Probably not.)
The desktop mastering application after which this app is named is decent, but boy I sure hope Audiofile isn't trying to advertise this mess as a feature. If they are, I hope someone is still actively working on it at least.
Please Update Your App
Audio plays back at the wrong speed on my iPhone 7s. The same files work fine on my iPhone 7.
I have installed the app several times, created new zip files, and restarted the phone multiple times with no luck solving the problem.
Additionally, the process of getting the files onto the phone is painful!
Plays at the wrong speed randomly
It worked fine in previous operating systems. Lately is been randomly playing at faster speed (like if it was a sample rate mismatch). No update from manufacturers at sight
