Blue Cat Audio MB-7 Mixer v2.51 AU OSX-Kleen
Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer is a unique plug-in that splits the signal into several frequency bands and lets you mix them as if they were separate tracks.


Each band proposes controls that you can find on a mixing console, and more: bypass, mute or solo each band separately to isolate frequencies you want to work on, adjust the gain, the "stereoness" and the position in the stereo field. When manipulating the stereo image, a master mono switch also lets you check mono compatibility.

The plug-in can also operate as a multiband VST and Audio Unit host: you can process each band 
independently with your favorite VST or Audio Unit plug-ins! Up to four plug-ins can be loaded on 
each band, pre or post fader. Latency compensation, presets management, undo/redo integration, 
and individual plug-in bypass are included for optimal operation.

Changes in Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer v2.51

- Last loaded preset can now be quickly saved from the presets menu without having to select the file.
- VST: fixed latency compensation reporting in Cubase (no need to re-enable the plug-in to update the latency anymore).
- AAX and RTAS: fixed a feedback loop that could occur in bypass mode when the plug-in was inserted before another one.

TDR VOS SlickEQ Gentleman’s Edition v1.2.0 Hy2ro TDR VOS SlickEQ Gentleman’s Edition v1.2.0 Hy2ro
Soft / VST Instruments 26-09-2015
TDR VOS SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition takes SlickEQ‘s concept to new heights and adds an exotic "Tilt”-filter flanked by flexible low-pass and high-pass filters. Five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands.

SlickEQ GE offers a switchable EQ non-linearity and seven different output stages. These options offer subtle and interesting textures, from the typical "mojo” often associated with high quality analogue audio gear, up to more obvious saturation.

An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived-loudness during EQ (within reasonable limits) and a gain-trim feature helps controlling peak overloads with ease. The 64bit multi-rate processing scheme (a.k.a. "internal re-sampling”) practically eliminates typical problems of digital EQ implementations such as frequency-warping, quantization distortion and aliasing.

Beside the primary controls, the plug-in comes with an array of additional helpers: Advanced preset management, a frequency magnitude plot, undo/redo, quick A/B comparison, copy & paste, an online help, editable labels, mouse-wheel support and much more. Finally, SlickEQ GE allows to exclusively process the stereo sum or stereo difference without external sum/difference encoding (see "M/S” microphony).

Synthblitz Audio DNX 03 Multiband Compressor v2.0 Hy2ro Synthblitz Audio DNX 03 Multiband Compressor v2.0 Hy2ro
Soft / VST Instruments 13-09-2015
DNX-03 is a three-band stereo Compressor (win vst plugin) inspired by the analog models,
with some added features such as noise reduction and wide stereo control for
each individual freq-band.
The DNX-03 is able to split the incoming signal into three frequency-bands using a
6dB per octave crossover.

First-order filters are considered by many audiophiles to be ideal for crossovers.

Each band is passed through a compressor and then through a stereo processor
where compression,gain and stereo image can be altered and improved.
The outputs of the compressors and processors are then re-combined and
fed to the master output.

News V2.0

New compressors inside
New parameters for compression
New saturation system
New shortcuts
New Fine and Ultrafine Control for Knobs (improve controls for mastering session)
Four modes of operation
New Frequency band parameters (now 33Hz to 18.000Hz - full control sub and super-high)
New Vu Meter (virtual coil) over 6dB
New LED Meters (large scale) for reduction
New Vu Meter LED for output (large scale) over 8 dB
New numerical meters for dB RMS

Blue Cat Audio PatchWork 1.71 OSX-Kleen Blue Cat Audio PatchWork 1.71 OSX-Kleen
PatchWork - Fully Configurable Plug-Ins Chainer

Blue Cat's PatchWork is a universal plug-ins patchbay that can host up to 64 VST 
or Audio Unit plug-ins into any Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in one instance.
It is possible to chain effects in series or create up to 8 parallel chains that can be 
activated independently. This lets you create your favorite 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.

Changes in Blue Cat’s PatchWork v1.71 

- Last loaded preset can now be quickly saved from the presets menu without 
having to select the file.
- VST: fixed latency compensation reporting in Cubase (no need to re-enable the 
plug-in to update the latency anymore).
- AAX and RTAS: fixed a feedback loop that could occur in bypass mode when 
the plug-in was inserted before another one.
Blue Cat's Dynamics v4.0 MAC OSX-Kleen Blue Cat's Dynamics v4.0 MAC OSX-Kleen
Blue Cat's Dynamics is a full featured dynamics processor: it can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all at once! The dynamics response of the plug-in can be tweaked with a unique two-thresholds system, and provides detailed visual feedback about its behavior.

The plug-in includes several filters to control the frequencies affected by the compression. Its continuous VCA/Opto and Peak/RMS controls let you smoothly and precisely choose the behavior of the envelope detection like you have never been able to.
The plug-in also provides advanced stereo features, with mid/side processing capability, multiple stereo linking options and the ability to choose the channels affected by the processor.
An additional brick wall limiter and clipper protects the output for complete control over the dynamics response.

Three different modes are available for external side chaining, using either the external side chain input, MIDI control or automation lanes.
The configurable visual feedback shows every detail of what is going on inside the plug-in. You can also record this information as automation curves, to monitor the modifications applied to the signal on top of the audio representation of your favorite host application.
All these features can be controlled from a fully configurable and "skinnable" user interface, or from any external controller.
