Blue Cat Audio updates MB-7 Mixer Multiband Multi FX Plug-in to v3.5

Blue Cat Audio

Blue Cat Audio has released MB-7 Mixer v3.5, a new version of the multiband multi-effects plug-in capable of loading third party plug-ins on separate frequency bands. Here's what they're saying:

With its new new macro parameters and many new features and improvements (full list below), this new version redefines multiband effects and lets you create your own, applying built-in or third party plug-ins on their own frequency bands. Many factory presets have also been revisited to let users interact with the effects easily with just a few knobs, regardless of their complexity.

This new version is also officially ready for for the next Pro Tools release, supporting native Apple Silicon for AAX (while all other Blue Cat Audio plug-ins already have previews available for existing customers).

New in Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer 3.5:

  • New macro controls editor to edit plug-in parameters mapping.
  • Assign multiple parameters from multiple plug-ins to a single macro control, and adjust the range for each parameter.
  • Assign a name to each macro control, that is now displayed in automation lanes in most host applications (may require a session reload in some cases).
  • Parameters names for existing sessions will be automatically updated upon load.
  • Select macro knobs appearance among 18 predefined styles.
  • Updated dozens of presets with macro parameters.
  • New learn modes to quickly assign plug-in parameters.
  • Added an option in global & preset input settings to send MIDI events when MIDI-enabled parameters are modified in the plug-in (to update control surfaces accordingly).
  • In most plug-in formats, internal audio I/O configuration can now be selected regardless of the configuration defined by the host (you can for example reduce the number of channels to save CPU and process only selected channels).
  • Improved performance to load the user interface.
  • Improved VST parameter value display in some host applications.
  • Added Apple Silicon support for AAX Plug-in Format.
  • Mac: installers and plug-ins have been notarized to avoid security warnings on Mac OS Catalina and newer.
  • Fixed bypass that did not let MIDI messages go thru for some MIDI plug-ins.
  • Fixed some GUI resizing issues with some VST3 plug-ins.
  • Fixed an issue with some VST3 plug-ins requiring to click twice on the bypass button to get bypassed.

Price: 99 EUR or $99 (instead of 129) until December 22nd, 2022. The free update can be downloaded from the same location as the original full version (link received by email upon purchase).

Demo versions are available on www.bluecataudio.com in most plug-in formats for Mac and PC.

System requirements:

  • Intel or Apple Silicon Mac running Mac OS 10.9 or newer.
