Examples

Technology Licensing and Custom Development

We have helped Zynaptiq port their existing Audio Unit only plug-in "UNVEIL" to most common plug-in formats for Mac and Windows, using our "Kitty" Audio Plug-ins SDK.

"If you're looking for a reliable solution - both for a plug-in SDK and custom software development services - I heavily recommend going with Blue Cat Audio. The Kitty SDK is rock-solid and boasts a very elaborate feature-set that leaves nothing to be desired. And Guillaume is exactly what you'd want from a development partner - reliable and fast with a "can-do" attitude and a level of attention to detail approaching that of a brain surgeon. Big thumbs up!" - Denis Goekdag, CEO, Zynaptiq.

Technology Licensing

From a customer using our audio effects library for several pro audio applications:

"Working with Blue Cat Audio has been an amazing experience. Since we deploy our software to a large number of customers on mobile devices our requirements on CPU and RAM consumption are very tough. Yet, we found that Blue Cat Audio's effects fully conformed to the specs with unmatched performance, sound quality and stability. Blue Cat Audio helped us integrate their library with our existing software in no time, the support was professional and highly reliable. We highly recommend Blue Cat Audio to anyone looking for supreme quality audio SDKs or plug-ins. We look forward to working with Blue Cat Audio on many audio related projects to follow!"

Product Customization

We customized the DP Meter Pro plugin for Jorge Maldonado Barrera (Mexico), so that he could succeed in adding subliminal messages to his audio tracks.

"I needed a special design for my subliminal communications project and people at Blue Cat did more than I asked for very fast. Now I am working with confidence and completely satisfied." - J.M. Barrera.

Custom Development

We developed custom digital audio software for Peaceland Music (USA) - our customer's project is still under development, details cannot be revealed.

"Guillaume [Jeulin] is a joy to work with - communicative, responsive, helpful, reliable and professional in every way. He makes an obvious effort to deliver on time, and to accurately detail his efforts. He is also reasonable with his time. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. I would recommend Guillaume to anyone seeking quality assistance with their software development." - James Musser, Peaceland Music.
