Blue Cat Audio has released a new version of its 6 audio analysis plugins. These original plug-ins are now available in virtually any format: this new version includes RTAS plugin format support for Pro Tools (Mac and PC). It also brings 64-bit support for DirectX and VST versions under Windows x64, and 64-bit Audio Units support under Snow Leopard (for Logic 9.1 users running in 64-bit mode). These audio analysis plugins offering original interaction capabilities are available as a single bundle (Blue Cat's Analysis Pack) or separately. The bundle contains a versatile audio level meter, spectrum and stereo field analyzers with 3D viewing capabilities, and a multiple tracks oscilloscope. While the "Multi" series propose simultaneous multiple tracks analysis with multiple instances linking support, the "Pro" series let you extract parameters from the incoming audio signal and record them as automation curves or send them as MIDI CC messages. Typical applications are the creation of unique side chaining effects or signal-based external hardware control. Demo versions are available for download on www.bluecataudio.com,
and the site offers many tutorials to get started with these plugins on various platforms. What's new:
- RTAS plugin format support for Pro Tools (Mac and Windows).
- 64-bit applications support for Windows DX and VST under Windows x64.
- Mac AU 64-bit format support (compatible with 64-bit Logic 9.1 on Snow Leopard)
