This week was of course Thanksgiving in the US, so naturally almost all the news was filled with Black Friday/Cyber Monday stuff (and I note that “Black Friday” now starts almost a week before and runs on for up to two weeks after the nominal date). Much more importantly though Mark and I are joined by Karl Madden of the Mac & Forth Show (and a keen Ferrite user) and Canis of Wooji Juice the makers of Ferrite Recording Studio.
Listeners of this show can claim $10 off purchases of Luminar and/or Aurora HD 2019 with discount code EssentialApple (If you buy Luminar 2018 you’ll get all updates for free. Learn more.)
We have a two Licenses for BeLight Live Home 3D to give away… 1x iOS and 1x Mac. Email the show on firstname.lastname@example.org with the phrase I give out in the show.

- Everyone should have a font manager… I really do believe that. So I highly recommend FontBase — All platforms. Professional features. Beautiful UI. Totally free. FontBase is the font manager of the new generation, built by designers, for designers.
Essential Apple is not affiliated with or paid to promote any of these services… We recommend services that we use ourselves and feel are either unique or outstanding in their field, or in some cases are just the best value for money in our opinion.

From Libraries to innovative new editing tools, every monumental advance and every new feature will be provided as free updates for Luminar 2018 users. This is a reflection of how much we value our customers, and how confident we are in the incredible value of the features we’ve got coming!
