With more than 200 additional visual styles, new locking features for improved presets management, contrast adjustments for spectrograms, as well as a couple of other GUI improvements, the plug-in has become even easier to use, check it out! Of course, the update is free for existing customers, as usual! Continue reading →
Our new plug-in,Blue Cat’s Destructor, will be soon available. So we thought you would be interested in looking at the “dark side of the plug-in” and know more about how it came to life, before getting your hands on it in a few days!
Here is a Q&A session about this new plug-in with our founder and CEO, Guillaume Jeulin. Continue reading →
We are happy to unveil today our new plug-in, Blue Cat’s Destructor, a comprehensive distortion and amp sim modeling tool capable of simulating any kind of distortion.
It will be demoed on booth #410 at the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles until October 2nd and will be available for purchase onOctober 11th.
This new plug-in gives access to an unlimited number of non-linear processing models, ranging from harsh digital destruction to smooth analog compression or guitar amp simulation (and it works for clean tones too).
It is delivered with hundreds of presets and predefined models, many of them inspired by real gear. It offers the ability to create completely custom distortion simulations beyond these models, thanks to its flexible yet simple signal processing chain – no need to purchase extra presets or amp models to build the perfect custom tone.
Based on a perceptual model rather than on electronic designs or impulse responses, it simplifies the process of tweaking the tone and making it fit into the mix. Thanks to its exclusive adaptive shaper, it is reactive to the playing of instrumentists, providing a very natural feeling, similar to analog gear.
In order to make the look and feel of the plug-in match the tone, the plug-in is bundled with more than 1400 visual styles that can be selected separately for each module.
VST3 plugins can loaded next to VST2 plug-ins or Audio Units in the same session, in almost any host application: your favorite VST3 plug-ins can now be hosted in Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton Live and more…
With a massive update of 16 plug-ins, in all plug-in formats including a new one (VST3), it’s a lot of things happening behind the scenes of bluecataudio.com, even if it just looks like a few lines of “new features & improvements” in the release notes.
So we’d like to give you an insight of what’s going on at the office for such an event and share the story with you. This blog is called “The Dark Side of the Cat” after all, and trust me, it’s pretty dark out there! Continue reading →
