Now that we can load custom IR’s inside Blue Cat’s Axiom (Amp + internal EQ), we thought it was a good idea to write a short tutorial on how to load and use/tweak IR’s inside Blue Cat Audio software. Continue reading
We live in a world with many guitarists, tons of tools and a lot of options to record our beloved guitars. Yet I feel we spend more time practicing than tweaking our sounds, while the tone is actually as important as the notes we play. Let’s take the example of guitar icon Jimi Hendrix. He spent literally nights in between gigs tweaking sounds with his recording engineer, and his tone was legend!
For sure tone is subjective, and it depends also on how you play, but there are a few tricks that can help you to get the best out of your guitar using today’s DAW based recording software.
Here are my top 8 points which I hope can help you to achieve a better tone : Continue reading
Please vote for your favorite solos (like the video on YouTube), and feel free to post your own )before november 15th!), there is a lot to win!
We are happy to announce our first guitar contest with the opportunity to win our acclaimed guitar & audio software Blue Cat’s Axiom, Destructor, Axe Pack and All Plug-Ins Pack, with a backing track provided by JTC (jtcguitar.com) and written by Martin Miller (martinmillerguitar.com).
All you need to do is record yourself playing your own guitar solo on the JTC backing track, using one of our amp simulations plug-ins: Blue Cat’s Free Amp, or the demo of Blue Cat’s Destructor or Axiom. Upload your video to your YouTube account and share it on the Blue Cat Audio Facebook page. 10 players will be selected from the YouTube likes, and the final jury (composed by Martin Miller and the Blue Cat Audio team) will vote for the 4 winners.
The contest will be running from September 17th until November 15th 2018, so get started, record your best solo and share it with us! 🙂

This feature works for both built-in effect plug-ins and third party VST, VST3 or Audio Unit plug-ins. Controls display can be made active or inactive using the following toolbar buttons:
So Blue Cat’s Axiom is now available… wow, that’s great! Wait a minute… What’s up with this new effects processor / amp simulation?
Why do we, guitarists and bassists, need yet another piece of software to take care of our precious tone?

So you are wondering what’s going on with Blue Cat’s Axiom since its announcement at NAMM earlier this year? It’s not Q2 yet, but we are making progress!
We have just shipped Blue Cat’s Destructor 1.3, and all the improvements for this release will be included into Axiom.
So you might want to check out the latest version of Blue Cat’s Destructor to have an idea of what guitar and bass amp simulations will look and sound like in Blue Cat’s Axiom 1.0!
As you can see in the screenshot here, new built-in effects have been added since our NAMM demos.
The new Late Replies 1.1 will feature all our plug-ins hosting improvements developed for Axiom and a few more things: Continue reading
