Our friend at ModernMixing.com has published a nice (free) tutorial that explains how to use Blue Cat’s Gain Suite multi instances capability to operate as a gain compensation plug-in and trigger distortion without changing the volume.
You can use a similar setup to trigger a compressor or any type of non-linear processor.
Did you know that the older Freeware Pack 1.x is still available for download?
We are often asked about older versions of our free plug-ins that would work with PowerPCs (Mac) or non SSE2 processors (Windows). We have made the older installers available, in case you would need them for your old rig!
