Blue Cat's StereoScope Multi - Real Time Multi Tracks Stereo Field Analyzer (AU, DX, RTAS, AAX and VST Plug-in) About Blue Cat's StereoScope Multi

"I haven't seen another plug-in that can visualise a mix in quite this way.[...] It could certainly be useful to check signal flow within a complex stereo effects chain, and as basic stereo meters for use over the master bus, StereoScope Multi and its sister plug-in, StereoScope Pro, offer a nice alternative to conventional designs, with the ability to compare your master to reference tracks." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008

Blue Cat's Protector - Brickwall Limiter Plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Protector

I tried out the demo and after just a few minutes I went back and bought it!

The Blue Cat Audio stuff is always quality, and the prices are more than reasonable - especially with the discount for being a previous customer! - Kevin Demuth, musician/composer


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

"I own several leading brands of software guitar emulation but Axiom is the first one I have used where the presets actually sound like well recorded real amps and are not instantly given away by the "digital fizz" which marks them as emulations and makes them not sit well in the mix. My initial experience is overwhelmingly positive, a quick tweak of an existing preset on the easy to use HMI and you have an eminently usable sound that sits in the track. In my view Axiom is a significant improvement in the state of the art of guitar amp emulation." - Robert Miller.

Blue Cat's Master Pack - Essential plugins for Mixing and Mastering (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Master Pack

After demoing I just had to splash out on the Mastering bundle, really impressed with the EQ, dynamics and spectrum analyser plug-ins. Played with them for ages and only then turned my attention to the Peak Meter Pro... that thing is awesome!

Great plug-ins and great price, thanks. - Neil Pullen


Blue Cat's Dynamics - Compressor, Gate, Limiter, Expander, Waveshaper Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, DX) 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]


Blue Cat's Widening Parametr'EQ - WYSIWYG Mid-Side Parametric Equalizer Plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Widening Parametr'EQ

"Blue Cat's range also includes a healthy selection of EQs and filters, and their Widening Parametr'EQ is another mastering tool with a twist. It's a stereo equaliser that operates in M/S mode, allowing you to apply different EQ curves to the Mid and Sides components of the signal before they are matrixed back into conventional stereo. [...] I was surprised at how effective the M/S equalisation can be for opening out a mix. A little high shelving boost and low-frequency cut on the Sides channel only can really make things more expansive, without introducing obvious artifacts or leaving a hollow centre, as some stereo width processors do. Sound-wise, the equalisation is transparent without being thin or unnecessarily clinical, and the width of the parametric bands can be set as low as 0.01 octaves, for surgical tasks such as hum removal." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008


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

"Ever wanted to analyse every track in a project at once, or record their dynamic variations as MIDI Controller information? Blue Cat Audio's unusual plug-ins implement some original and very clever features."

"They've got plenty of good ideas, and in the shape of FreqAnalyst Multi they've created a unique tool that's very useful. Serious metering and analysis tools are often very expensive, so the inexpensive nature of these plug-ins makes them all the more welcome." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008


Blue Cat's Widening Liny EQ - Mid-Side Linear Phase Equalizer (RTAS, DX, AU and VST Plug-in) About Blue Cat's Widening Liny EQ

" This is really a potent plugin and one of my favorites of the entire collection." - Glen Heffner, CakewalkNet
