Blue Cat Audio has released a free update for Blue Cat’s Plug’n Script, its audio and MIDI scripting software that can be programmed to create your own effects or virtual instruments inside most Digital Audio Workstations (DAW).
This new version of the plug-in officially adds support for Apple M1 processors (was available as a preview), and brings many new MIDI and audio I/O features as well as many other improvements and fixes (full change list below).
The update is free for registered V3 customers and can be downloaded from the same location as the original full version (link received by email upon purchase). A special re-introduction price (20% off) is available to new customers until July 23rd, while other existing customers will receive an offer by email. Demo versions can be downloaded on www.bluecataudio.com for Mac and PC.
