Blue Cat Audio releases Blue Cat's PatchWork - Virtual Plug-Ins Patchbay

Blue Cat Audio

Blue Cat Audio has released Blue Cat's PatchWork universal patchbay plug-in. It can host up to 64 VST plug-ins in any Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).

It is possible to chain effects in series or create up to 8 parallel chains that can be activated independently, and create many effects or instruments configurations within the plug-in, without the need for multiple busses. These configurations can be saved as presets and recalled instantly, or shared with multiple DAWs, using any plug-in format. Despite the plug-in's name, no wiring or cabling is required: configuring plug-ins routing is as simple as adding or removing a row or a column in the rack's matrix.

For each plug-in slot, latency compensation, presets management, undo/redo integration, and individual plug-in bypass are included for optimal operation. The plug-in also stores the position of the window for each plug-in so that the layout is restored with the session or saved with presets.

Main Features:

  • Configurable VST plug-ins rack: host up to 64 third party plug-ins or instruments in series or parallel.
  • Available as an effect or virtual instrument.
  • Build an effects chains: up to 8 "pre" and "post" plug-ins slots to chain plug-ins in series.
  • Parallel processing made easy: up to 8 parallel plug-ins chains.
  • Host up to 8 virtual instruments in parallel and mix them within the plug-in.
  • Global Dry/Wet control ("Mix").
  • Copy and paste plug-ins with their settings between slots.
  • Recall complex processing setups and plug-ins layouts with one click and share them between DAWs.
  • Input and output levels monitoring.
  • Plug-ins Latency compensation.
  • Integrated undo/redo.
  • Fully configurable user interface, with multiple sizes.

Price: £59. A special introduction price (20% off the plug-in) is offered to new customers until December 31st, while existing Blue Cat Audio customers can purchase the plug-in with 40% discount. The plug-in is available alone or as part of the Blue Cat's All Plug-ins Pack, the complete Blue Cat Audio collection bundle.

System requirements:

  • Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.5 or newer.
  • PC running Windows XP or newer.

hey there blue cats... beautiful plugin... yet, I could imagine an improvement if it's possible:

So Okay... there are the various plugin slots, right? but you have to load them from your pointed to list of vsti\vst's... OK... fine... but once loaded how about being able to drag and drop a copy from one slot to another? Clearly after that presets to the copy could be changed, so for example we could quickly have two diff sounds in two diff slots from the same vsti... you see?

thanks for listening.
