Blue Cat Audio

Blue Cat Audio has announced significant updates for its dynamics processing and audio analysis plug-ins.

The user interface of the Blue Cat's Dynamics and Protector plug-ins have been fully redesigned and the appearance of the analysis plug-ins has also been refreshed. All plug-ins are now fully zoomable to adapt to the size of the screen.

The two dynamics processor now offer a lookahead function to anticipate volume changes and react faster, and the Dynamics plug-in is now interoperable with the recently updated MB-5 Dynamics multiband plug-in.

The updated StereoScope Multi and FreqAnalyst Multi plug-ins perform most of the computations in the background, freeing up resources for other real time audio tasks.

The new versions of the plug-ins will be demoed at the Winter NAMM Show this week on booth #16300, and are expected for release in Q1 2019. Updates will be free for existing customers, and preview versions are already available for existing customers using the link received by email upon purchase.

  • Refreshed GUI design, with improved usability and touchscreen support.
  • The GUI can now be zoomed from 70% to 200%.
