Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix - The All-In-One Multiband Dynamics Processor About Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix

"Excellent!!! (10/10) [...] J'aime beaucoup l'interface très intuitive, simple à appréhender, la qualité sonore. J'apprécie la sélection de la source de side-chain à appliquer sur chaque bande, le copier/coller des réglages d'une bande vers une autre, le grand choix de pentes pour chaque bande (de 6dB à 60dB), l'échelle de la fenêtre graphique (10dB, 20dB et 40dB), les paramètres Threshold/Ratio et Knee indépendants pour le bas et le haut de la courbe de chaque bande, etc... La liste est longue.

Pour conclure, c'est un outil très complet, bien pensé et la qualité sonore est au rendez-vous ! Le rapport qualité/prix me semble excellent.." - Laurent Bergman, producer - full review (French)

I appreciate the selection of side-chain source to be applied to each band, copy and paste settings from one band to another, the wide range of slopes in each band (6dB to 60dB), wide the graphics window (10dB, 20dB and 40dB), the parameters Threshold / Ratio and Knee independent bottom and top of the curve of each band, etc ... The list is long.

As a conlusion, it is a very complete tool, well thought out and the sound quality is there! The price/quality ratio seems excellent.." - full review (Translated)

There is just about nothing you can't find out about your digital audio using these analysers, many of which support advanced features [...]. For less adventurous, the plug-ins simply represent extremely acurate and flexible analysis tools." - Hollin Jones, Producer, Music Tech Magazine, July 2010.


Blue Cat's Axiom - Guitar & Bass Amp Simulation With Effects (VST, AU, AAX, VST3, Standalone) About Blue Cat's Axiom

Period. Download the demo, and within 30 minutes, you’ll buy it. It’s like a sound design laboratory.[...] The bottom line is that Axiom is unique. There is no other amp sim like it." - Craig Anderton - [Read full review].


Blue Cat's Destructor - Distortion and Amp Simulation Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, VST3) About Blue Cat's Destructor

Blue Cat's Axiom - Guitar & Bass Amp Simulation With Effects (VST, AU, AAX, VST3, Standalone) About Blue Cat's Axiom

"Dans un marché plus que concurrentiel, Blue Cat Audio arrive encore à innover avec cet Axiom, plein de sons pour guitares et basses, entre autres. En combinant un processeur multi-effet et des simulations d’ampli sous la même interface, Axiom pourrait bien devenir l’arme fatale des guitaristes en home-studio et, pourquoi pas, sur scène !." - KR Home Studio - Juin 2018.


Blue Cat's Re-Guitar - Guitar Pickup And Body Simulator (VST, VST3, AAX and Audio Unit Plug-in) About Blue Cat's Re-Guitar

" This might be one of those rare things that comes along and becomes a complete game changer for me. It completely exceeded my expectations.[...] This is hands down the most convincing thing I've ever heard for acoustic tones. [...] It sounds better than a lot of acoustic guitars I've heard! [...] Pickup emulations: really, really, really useful tones for any situation I can think of in there.[...] @Blue Cat Audio Well done!" - metropolis_4 on The Gear Page - [full review].


Blue Cat's Late Replies - Creative Delay & Reverb / Multi FX Plug-In & Host (VST, AU, AAX, VST3) About Blue Cat's Late Replies

"I really like it - it's different. [...] In 2016 Blue Cat Audio released Destructor, a very clever amp/distortion plug-in, and that changed things for me.[...] I've got the feeling that this is going to change the way I work with delays. [...] This is a plug-in that can be as simple a you want it to be, or as complicated, which is quite nice. " - Pro Tools Expert Editor's Choice, August 2017 - [full video review].


Blue Cat's Re-Guitar - Guitar Pickup And Body Simulator (VST, VST3, AAX and Audio Unit Plug-in) About Blue Cat's Re-Guitar

"The tone possibilities are basically endless. This could replace hours of work trying to find ideal pickups for a recording or tweaking gain and EQ trying to change the tone of the guitars you have available. This plugin feels like having 50+ years worth of guitar history right at your fingertips." - Audio Geek 11 - [full review].


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 Dynamics - Compressor, Gate, Limiter, Expander, Waveshaper Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, VST3) About Blue Cat's Dynamics

"[Blue Cat's] Dynamics 3.0 has a lot to offer. Advanced (yet easy to use) side-chain options, innovative real-time MIDI control, detailed monitoring of what’s going on… Sometimes more really is more.

I love the flexibility of this plug-in. While it is lots of fun dialing in some experimental settings, [Blue Cat's] Dynamics also performs really well doing some of the more bread & butter type compression styles.

[...] The interface is easy to get around, with controls clearly labeled and grouped in sections (outlined with a blue border). The option to set the opacity of the plug-in is a nice touch.[...]

In the end it is the sound that counts though, and I think [Blue Cat's] Dynamics does a great job here. [...]

[Blue Cat's] Dynamics 3.0 is perfectly suitable for beginners, as well as advanced users who can’t stop tweaking. - Ronnie - rekkerd.org. [Read full review with audio samples]
