Yes, it is already in the most recently released plug-ins (including the free ones). Nothing fancy, here, just a simple menu with your presets and a few settings:

There is more about it in the user manual

This is just outstanding.

Solves this problem with a hammer blow:

This is awesome. I'm definitely buying this one.

Having a bit of a display bug in Studio One.

MB-7 GUI is visible but disconnected from Studio One's plug-in window.

Also, the plug-in editor windows only display their GUIs when the blue-cat GUI is the active window. Otherwise they are white.

Wouldn't you be using the 32-bit version of Studio One on Mac? There are still potential issues due to Cocoa/Carbon interactions that Apple has never solved.

Thanks for the heads up btw: we'll look into this in details.

32-bit support will probably be removed by Apple in the future, so if you can make the jump, that's much better, indeed :-).

We'll look into this issue with the 32-bit version, though.

So, just to confirm, if the MB-7 is loaded into PT11 (AAX64), you can still load VSTs into it?

Yes, it will load 64-bit VSTs.

If you need to load 32-bit VSTs. you can use a third party VST bridge like jBridge I guess.

I've actually tested it with jbridge vsts and it works. Been a massive fan of this since beta. I maintain its a game changer and especially on mac an absolute and utter life saver. 10/10 and I'd give it 11 if possible.

Blue, I noticed when I go to load a vst it always goes to the main set path, which is a little annoying, it should have a remember last folder for that session functionality, even as an option.

Otherwise FLAWLESS and I don't use that word lightly. Everyone needs this, everyone.

Indeed. Looks like a good candidate for 2.1, thanks!
