[...] In summary, the key word here is flexibility. If you're in the market for a dynamics processor, or something to augment what you've already got, give this demo a spin and see what you come up with -- you might just surprise yourself!" - Neil Pullen. [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 Dynamics - Compressor, Gate, Limiter, Expander, Waveshaper Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Dynamics

"Approximately 10 months ago I began a quest for finding a single channel dynamics processing plug-in that I could use while mastering any mix.[...] With 6 months of trying different plug-ins I was unable to find one, until Blue Cat. [...]

I am strongly considering using the plug-in as a main software example in advanced dynamic processing instruction at RID.[...] I am convinced that you could probably use it with good results for any job that required single channel dynamic processing and that it could be used where other single channel dynamics processing can't do the job.

I am therefore recommending it as a main dynamics processing tool."

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

"I bought the metering plugins, and not only are they the best freq analyzer and peak meter I have had so far [...], but the envelope generators REALLY KICK ASS! I'm thoroughly impressed! Thanks!

The precise control over the envelopes and not least the huge choice of what signal to use for the envelopes creates unlimited possibilities. Much more intuitive and inspiring than any other sidechain type application I've laid my hands on. Very cool." - Tormod Carstens, Norsk Dritbra Lyd. NDL.

[...] Remote Control 2 does what it says on the tin, and does it well, all for a reasonable price."
