Blue Cat Audio has released an update for 16 of its audio plug-ins: Blue Cat’s Plug’n Script, Dynamics, PatchWork, FreqAnalyst Multi, MB-7 Mixer, Protector, StereoScope Multi, Liny EQ, DP Meter Pro, Oscilloscope Multi, and the Freeware Pack (6 free plug-ins) are now available in VST3 format on both Mac and Windows (32 and 64-bit).
Here are a few of the highlighted benefits of the VST3 format which brings a more elegant way to define multiple busses for auxiliary audio inputs and outputs, as well as a few enhancements for presets management and parameter automation….
- Improved External Side Chain Support in Steinberg Applications
- Factory Presets Access From Host
- More Plug-In Categories
- Silence Detection
- Automation & Parameters Display
Instead of creating additonal quad or stereo busses for routing with the VST2 format for that extra input, you now have native side-chain support with VST3.
If you have plug-ins with side-chain that haven’t been updated to VST3, you can purchase/utilize Blue Cat’s Patchwork and have side-chain support right there!
Factory Presets are now available for access directly in the host application.
Find your Blue Cat plug-ins easier in lisetd categories.
Gain increased performance as no processing occurs during silence.
Finally be able to view full parameter names and adjust automation in lanes whilst viewing actual parameter values instaead of percentages.
You can view expanded information with referenced points on the Blue Cat Audio Blog.
In addition to VST3 format support, this update includes additional improvements for all plug-in formats regarding presets and skins management, plus compatibility enhancements for plug-in hosting. It is a recommended update for all users!
This update is free for existing customers and can be downloaded from the same location as the original full version, using the link received by email upon purchase. The VST3 version of the free plug-ins remains free as well.
