Blue Cat's StereoScope Pack - Real Time Stereo Image Audio Analysis VST, DX, AU and RTAS Plug-ins Bundle About Blue Cat's StereoScope Pack

"Remember, the object of these devices are to make your music sound even more professional.[...] Blue Cat Audio doesn’t just make plugins without a reason. While these two are very similar, they work for very specific recording work segments. My opinion is that you want to use the StereoScope Multi when tracking or mixing your tracks and the StereoScope Pro when you are ready to “Master” your audio down to a two-track master! - Glen Heffner, CakewalkNet [Read full review]


Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer - Multi Band Mixing Plug-in and VST/VST3/AU Host About Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer

Blue Cat's MB Dynamix Pack was granted the Performance Award by Computer Music Magazine"It’s simple enough in concept, but factor in band-specific panning, stereo width, mute, bypass and solo, and you’ve got a powerful mastering and manipulation tool. [...]

In use, the MB-7 shows itself to be part mastering tool and part creative plug-in, particularly when you combine reverse linking of bands with some automation. But we found it particularly good for controlling the stereo width for specific frequency ranges on a multitude of stereo sources including drum kits, piano,strings and full mixes. This allowed us to make our sounds more expansive in the mid and high frequencies while retaining low-end cohesion. Equally, if you’ve time to kill, MB-7 can do a fair job of isolating sounds in mixed sources. [...]

These are precise, almost scientific tools[...]. So, they require time to truly get to grips with. In return, they'll continue to deliver as you explore their depths. [...] Pros: Clever ideas well implemented, Quality multiband processing, MB-7 linking options a nice touch, Cross-band internal sidechaining.

Verdict: 8/10. A super-flexible, great-sounding plug-in combo for the more technically inclined. " - Computer Music Magazine - October 2011, reviewed as part of Blue Cat's MB Dynamix Pack.

Blue Cat's MB Dynamix Pack - Essential plugins for Multiband Dynamics Processing (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's MB Dynamix Pack

"With Blue Cat Audio’s innovative MIDI side-chaining system, the sky’s the limit.

[...] Blue Cat Audio are plug-in developers who put an enormous amount of thought into their products, creating an extremely powerful and flexible range of processors. If there’s something you want to do to the dynamics or tone of your audio, no matter how obscure or involved, the chances are you can set up one of their compressors or EQs to do it[...]

[Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer] might seem an odd idea, but it actually provides alternative ways of implementing a number of fairly common processes.[...] It also has some fresh tricks up its sleeve, and most of these relate to Blue Cat’s trademark linking techniques. [...] The possibilities are, quite literally, endless.[...]

We shouldn’t overlook the core features of the MB5 multi-band dynamics processor. [...] You’ll have a job finding anything else quite so comprehensively specified. A highlight of Blue Cat plug-ins in general, and MB5 and MB7 in particular, is the amount of visual feedback they give you. [...] Everything you’d reasonably expect to be able to click on and move about can be clicked on and moved about.[...] Extreme parameter ranges on offer mean you can create some pretty out-there effects, especially when you get into abusing MB5’s upwards compression.

In general, I think these plug-ins will appeal most to those who want and need very precise control, and are willing to invest some time and effort in learning how to get the best from them. If you’re after creative dynamic effects that can’t be achieved in any other way, or you’re presented with problematic material that needs to be fixed, these plug-ins can do things nothing else is capable of. [...] They are uniquely flexible." - Sound On Sound Magazine - July 2011 [Read Full Review]


Blue Cat's Freeware Plug-ins Pack II - Download Freeware Audio Plugins (VST, RTAS, Audio Unit, DirectX) (Freeware) About Blue Cat's Free Pack

Blue Cat Audio's free plugins have had a staple presence in my arsenal since the first time I came across them. Free or not, these plugins maintain a distinct flavour that makes them my absolute go-to plugins when the situation calls for it.

This group of plugins has the added bonus of full automation and MIDI interfacing, and a standardized configuration template that easily melds them into any DAW configuration. They couldn't be easier to use at any experience level, allow very fine incremental adjustments, and are thoroughly optimized for resource consumption. - Max Debutante

Blue Cat's Analysis Pack - Audio Analysis Tools and Audio to MIDI Plugins Bundle (VST, AU, DX, RTAS) About Blue Cat's Analysis Pack
