Blue Cat Audio releases Blue Cat's Liny EQ 5.0 (incl. Win AAX)

Blue Cat Audio has released Blue Cat's Liny EQ 5.0, a complete rewrite of their low latency linear phase EQ plug-ins.

Blue Cat's Liny EQ is an 8 bands linear phase graphic equalizer with very low latency and comprehensive visual feedback: it processes audio signals without phase distortion, with an unusually short latency (less than 3 milliseconds). Version 5.0 has now a brand new, fully customizable user interface, and includes many new features and enhancements: premium visual feedback with EQ curves, spectrum and spectrogram displays, new EQ shapes, single and dual channels modes, a new presets manager, Windows AAX support, multiple display sizes, new MIDI and automation mapping capabilities, and much more (full list below).

The plug-in is available alone or as part of Blue Cat's Master Pack, a bundle including the company's recommended plug-ins for mastering.

New Features:

  • Brand new, fully customizable user interface:
    • New look and feel.
    • Show/hide what you need.
    • New EQ curve display.
    • New instant spectrum curves display.
    • New color or greyscale overlayed spectrogram view.
    • New output peak levels meters.
    • Multiple display sizes.
    • Improved readability.
    • Animated transitions.
  • New "mix" parameter for instant dry/wet control or side chain dynamic equalization.
  • New interpolation mode for up to four different EQ shapes.
  • Now includes both single and dual channels versions and supersedes the three plug-ins previously included in the Blue Cat's Liny EQ Pack bundle.
  • Spectrum and spectrogram displays can be frozen to capture spectral snapshots.
  • New integrated presets manager:
    • Load/save presets from the plug-in's user interface.
    • Organize presets with folders.
    • Customize the default preset.
    • Exchange presets easily.
  • Automation range and response curve can now be customized for each parameter (in and out).
  • Automation and MIDI settings (channel, MIDI learn etc.) are now accessible from the main user interface.
  • AAX plug-in format is now also supported on Windows (Pro Tools 10.2 required).

Improvements:

  • Different EQ shapes can now be selected for each channel.
  • New presets to get started faster.
  • The windows installer now automatically detects the most appropriate VST install path.
  • License is now shared between plug-ins types (register only once for all formats).
  • Improved value display in fine edit window.
  • Improved parameters display on control surfaces.

Optimizations and Performance Improvements:

  • Improved parameters precision (now stored as 64-bit).
  • More compact presets format (uses less space and loads faster).
  • Smaller binaries on Mac (dropped PowerPC support).

Bug Fixes:

  • (RTAS) Fixed parameters control with EUCON control surfaces in Pro Tools.
  • Fixed user interface issues in Final Cut Pro X.
  • Fixed user interface display issues in Wavelab on Mac.
  • Fixed keyboard stealing issue in Digital Performer 7 on Mac.
  • Fixed copy/paste keyboard shortcut issues in the registration panel on Mac.

Note: this new version can be installed side by side with the previous version for backward compatibility reasons. Installing this new version won't break previous projects.

System requirements:

  • Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.5 or newer.
  • PC running Windows XP or newer.

Price:

  • Blue Cat's Liny EQ 5: €74 or $96 (instead of €99 or $129), until June 15th.
  • Upgrade from Blue Cat's Liny EQ 4: €19 or $25.
  • Blue Cat's Master Pack: €390 or $509 (instead of €459 or $599), until June 15th.

Demo versions are available for download on www.bluecataudio.com, in VST, RTAS, AAX, Audio Unit and DirectX formats, for both Mac and PC (32 and 64-bit).
