Official support for:


Blue Cat's PatchWork 1.5 and MB-7 Mixer 2.4 are now available! These new versions mainly bring stability, compatibility and interoperability enhancements: you can now load more plug-ins, on more machines!

The new PatchWork plug-in also supports MIDI FX Audio Units and can be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X, as shown on our blog.

As usual, this update is free for existing customers and can be downloaded from the same page as the original full version.

- Missing VST plug-ins can now be relocated if not found.
