Blue Cat's Freeware Pack free audio plugins bundle has been updated. The big news is that new version introduces RTAS plugin format support for Pro Tools. It also includes several fixes and enhancements for the other formats, on both Mac and PC.

Although it should be pretty stable now, RTAS support is still in beta, so please send us feedback by email or in this support forum. You can use this thread to report issues or tell us that it works properly on your system :).

What's new in this version:
- Factory presets are now available from the plugin menu.
- RTAS plugin format support (final beta stage - currently available with the Free Pack only)
- Mac: fixed keyboard/mouse focus issues in some hosts.
- Mac: fixed user interface crashes in some hosts, when used with particular display settings.
- Mac-AU: fixed user interface resizing issue when changing skin in some hosts (Logic).
- Mac-AU: fixed settings lost issue when doing offline rendering in some applications.

In case you have had issues accessing our website in the past 48 hours, it's now been fixed. This was due to the huge amount of freeware downloads.

The download and web servers are now separated and we have also doubled the bandwidth, so it should be much better now. In case you find the files a bit slow to download, please be patient: it's just because there are many of you who want the same plugins at the same time :).

Thank you for your understanding.

The RTAS version of our freeware pack has been updated! It's still in beta and we'll hopefuly release the final version soon. Please continue to send us feedback!

What's new:
- Mac: fixed incompatibility issue with Snow Leopard (under Pro Tools pre-release 8.0.3). Random crashes when closing the plugins GUIs are now fixed.
- Mac: fixed window opacity issue (was not properly reset when loading a new Blue Cat Audio plugin with an opaque skin in the same window).
- Mac / PC: fixed plugin name that ended with duplicate (stereo) or (mono) qualifier.
- Mac / PC: fixed MIDI node naming issue (did not always correspond to exact plugin name).
