Blue Cat Audio updates its Audio Analysis and Metering Plug-Ins

Blue Cat Audio

Blue Cat Audio has released a free upgrade for all its audio analysis and metering plug-ins, including the fully refreshed FreqAnalyst Pro 2.0 and StereoScope Pro 2.0 plug-ins.

The new versions have a completely refreshed (zoomable) GUI design, a new background processing implementation with improved precision, VST3 support, and many new features and enhancements. The other four plug-ins mainly bring user interface improvements and bug fixes for the Mac platform (full details below). This is a recommended free upgrade for all registered users.

What's New:

  • Audio analysis is now performed in the background and does not affect audio performance at all.
  • FreqAnalyst Pro: FFT precision now goes up to 11.
  • StereoScope Pro: new "Stereo Spread" measurement that shows how the signal is spread in the stereo field.
  • Refreshed GUI design, with improved usability and touchscreen support.
  • The GUI can now be zoomed from 70% to 200%.
  • Now supports retina displays on Mac (text and graphs using high resolution).
  • Save each memory curve as a file that can be reloaded later as a reference.
  • Copy and paste memory curves between instances using the system clipboard.
  • Factory and user skins can now be selected directly from the plug-in menu.
  • VST: the user interface is now properly resized in Cubase on Windows.
  • New installer on Mac.
  • Brand new presets management system.
  • Presets can now be selected using MIDI Program change and bank select messages (can be activated with the presets menu/MIDI Program Change item).
  • Copy/paste the plug-in's current state from the presets menu using the system clipboard.
  • Now compatible with MacOS Catalina and Big Sur.
  • VST3 plug-in format support.
  • Audio Suite support for offline analysis in Pro Tools.
  • Dropped support for Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier.
  • Dropped support for legacy RTAS and DirectX plug-ins formats.
  • What's New For Other Plug-Ins:
