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

"A very flexible, "tweakers dream" compressor. When you know what you are doing you can create some very interesting compression. It also works rather well as a transparent compressor for all kinds of material. [...] You can perform tasks with this thing that I have not been able to reproduce with anything else. The overall 'sound' of this compressor is clean, very clean.[...]

Overall it's a very flexible compressor that provides just enough unique features and sound to be highly recommended!" - Niklas Silen, Producer/Composer


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

"Late Replies is one of the greatest delays in the world. [...] Late Replies can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. That is what I love about it, everything is up to the user." - Blayne Stone - [read full review].


Blue Cat's Parametr'EQ - WYSIWYG Parametric Equalizer Plugin (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Parametr'EQ

Upon first playing with the plug-in it sounded much like the v2.1 that we had installed. Not much of an audible change was a good thing considering I liked the quality of the ealier version. Next I turned to the Non-Linear and Comp-Dist controls to see if I could dirty up this clean sounding EQ.

I was really impressed with the amount of warmth that could be added with this control coupled with the low shelf.(...)

The limiting and oversampling are also welcome new features. Overall I am excited to work more with this plug-in in a mix. - Daniel Agosto, Media Producer - gearwire.com


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 FreqAnalyst Pro - Real Time Spectrum Analyzer and Audio to MIDI AU, RTAS, DX and VST Plug-in About Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst Pro

I have downloaded and tried the FreqAnalyst Pro, and I must say I am impressed. The zoom and slide functions are particularly impressive. I am also glad there is a possibility to store curves to a memory - Tom Burr


Blue Cat's Flanger - Classic Flanging Effect Audio Plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, AAX, VST3) (Freeware) About Blue Cat's Flanger

The Blue Cat Flanger and Blue Cat Phaser are capable of a wealth of sound variations that belies their simple looking interfaces. - Max Debutante


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

"I have been playing with Axiom for one day NONSTOP. It is wonderful. It is probably one of the most well thought out plugins I have ever used. [...] The sounds are incredible and very full. [...] All in all a great product and I am very happy with it so far." - Dallon Ghan.


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

"As most know, I'm a multiband compressor junkie! From my first review, the MB-5 Dynamix has to be the most complex multi I have seen in regards to the overall control on each band. Based off of the quality and performce of the other Blue Cat plug-ins I own, the MB-5 Dynamix will probably turn out to be my go-to multi-comp.

Prefer the MB-5 Dynamix over the UA Precision Multiband: I'm finding that I can push the MB-5 Dynamix a little harder before I get the artifacts and the additional parameters allows for extensive tweaking.

Comparisons between MB-5 Dynamix and iZotope's MultiBand Compressor: iZotope has been my first go-to for multi-comp's. MB-5 Dynamix beats it out. I really like having that extra band in the MB-5 Dynamix and the ability to select the crossover slope for each band is a major plus. Oh, and I have only touched the surface of what the MB-5 Dynamix can do.

[...] I have stopped doing comparisons with the MB-5 Dynamix and my other multi-band compressors. It's not worth the time. The MB-5 Dynamix is just better. I started experimenting with the "Cross-Band Side Chaining" function. Wow, talk about a serious!" - Byron Santo, bassist, producer and author (www.byronsanto.com).


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.
