Dear KVR Members,

It's time to celebrate! For our 15 years in the audio software business, we have just released an update for the Freeware Pack bundle and launched year-end promotions.

The new version of the free plug-ins bundle now includes the Free Amp plug-in that was available separately. The user interfaces of the 6 other plug-ins have been refreshed with the new Blue Cat Audio design, and they are now fully zoomable. The spectrum analyzer now performs most of the computation in the background, freeing up resources for other audio processing tasks. This update includes many other improvements and fixes detailed below.

These 7 plug-ins (Blue Cat's Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, FreqAnalyst, Gain Suite, Triple EQ and Free Amp) are still 100% free and do not require any registration, dongle, or mailing list subscription. They are available for download separately or as part of the Freeware Pack bundle on our website.

It is also the occasion for us to launch end of year promotions, with up to 40% off plug-ins and applications until the end of December. Existing customers are granted an extra 10% discount during the year-end promotions period, with a coupon received by email.
