Want to bring energy and dynamics to your tracks? Looking for a complete wideband, multi-band and side chain dynamics processing solution? It’s here!
This bundle of plug-ins includes our best tools to manage the dynamics of your audio tracks: Blue Cat’s DP Meter Pro monitors the levels and offers unique ducking capabilities thanks to its side chain features. Blue Cat’s Dynamics includes all you need for broadband dynamics processing, while Blue Cat’s MB-5 Dynamix takes care of multiband effects. Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer is the perfect companion for these dynamics processors: it will let you create powerful multiband side chain effects. Finally, Blue Cat’s Protector’s simple yet efficient limiting capabilities complete the bundle.
All these plug-ins offer unique sidechaining capabilities using MIDI or automation control. They can thus be used for a wide range of dynamics-based side chain effects.
Blue Cat’s DP Meter Pro
Blue Cat’s DP Meter Pro (DPMP) is a unique audio analysis tool: it combines very flexible and customizable audio meters with advanced side chaining control capabilities thanks to its MIDI and automation outputs.
Blue Cat’s Dynamics
Blue Cat’s Dynamics is a full-featured dynamics processor: it can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all at once! The dynamics response of the plug-in can be tweaked with a unique two-threshold system and provides detailed visual feedback about its behaviour.
Blue Cat’s MB-5 Dynamix
Blue Cat’s MB-5 Dynamix is an extremely powerful all-in-one multiband dynamics processor: it can be used as a multiband compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all combined at once, on any part of the spectrum. The unique dynamics processing section of the Blue Cat’s Dynamics plug-in has been streamlined and integrated into this plug-in to process each one of the 5 bands separately. The plug-in provides unique envelope detection capabilities that let one band trigger the dynamics response on others (internal side-chain). Combined with the advanced stereo features including mid/side processing and independent channels activation, it gives you full control over the dynamics of the signal for a wide range of effects. An additional brick wall limiter/clipper protects the output for complete control over the dynamics response.
Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer
Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer is a unique plug-in that splits the signal into several frequency bands and lets you mix and process them as if they were separate tracks. Each band proposes controls that can be found on a mixing console, and more: bypass, mute or solo each band separately to isolate frequencies you want to work on, adjust the gain, the “stereoness” and the position in the stereo field. When manipulating the stereo image, a master mono switch also lets you check mono compatibility.
Blue Cat’s Protector
Blue Cat’s Protector is a 0 dB stereo brickwall limiter with an adjustable dynamic response. It will typically find its place on the master bus of your DAW to protect your audio output from overshoot, limit the general volume and improve the perceived loudness, thanks to a very transparent frequency response.
0 dB brickwall peak limiter and waveshaper.
Continuous control of the dynamics response from transparent limiting to colourful distortion.
Stereo link control.
DC Filter to get rid of DC offset.
Large zoomable peak and RMS audio levels and gain reduction meters for optimal monitoring.
Loudness boost monitoring.
Fully configurable dynamics response histogram.
Sidechaining capability: a unique way to perform side chain compression and much more.
