Blue Cat Audio releases Analysis Pack Audio Units for Mac (+updates Win/Mac VST/DX versions)
3rd March 2009

Blue Cat Audio has announced the release of its audio analysis plug-ins for Mac OS X in Audio Unit format. The DirectX and VST for Windows and VST for Mac OS X versions of the six plug-ins have also been updated, including several fixes and improvements.

These audio analysis plug-ins are available as a single bundle - Blue Cat's Analysis Pack - or separately. The bundle consists of a versatile audio level meter, spectrum and stereo field analyzers as well as a multiple-tracks oscilloscope. While the "Multi" series provide simultaneous multiple tracks analysis with multiple instances linking support, the "Pro" series let you extract parameters from the incoming audio signal and record them as automation curves or send them as MIDI CC messages. Typical applications are the creation of unique side chaining effects or external signal based hardware control.

To celebrate the support of this new format, Blue Cat Audio is offering a 15% price reduction on the Blue Cat's Analysis Pack bundle (the upgrade is free for existing customers). Demo versions and available for download and the site offers many tutorials to get you started with these plug-ins.
