Blue Cat Audio Releases Blue Cat's PatchWork 2.1

Paris, France, 2017/11/09: Blue Cat Audio ( ) has released Blue Cat's PatchWork 2.1, a new version of its "universal plug-ins patchbay" software that can now host 25 built-in audio effects alongside VST, VST3 or Audio Unit plug-ins.

This new version includes 25 new built-in audio effects that can be mixed together with third party VST, VST3 or Audio Unit plug-ins to create custom effects and instruments patches that can be shared across Digital Audio Workstations.
