Blue Cat Audio updates PatchWork to v1.5 and MB-7 Mixer to v2.4

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 20, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Blue Cat Audio has released an update for the Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer plug-ins, improving compatibility with third party plug-ins and adding new interoperability features.

Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer

Both plug-ins can now load more VST and Audio Unit plug-ins (fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins manufacturers). For improved interoperability between systems, plug-ins’ state are now retained even if the plug-ins are missing, and VST plug-ins can be relocated if moved.

The new PatchWork 1.5 plug-in also supports MIDI FX Audio Units and can be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X to quickly build complex MIDI effects chains (full change list below).

Changes in PatchWork v1.5 / MB-7 Mixer v2.4

  • New Features for both plug-ins:
    • Missing VST plug-ins can now be relocated if not found.
    • The plug-in now saves missing plug-ins’ state so that they can be restored later.
  • New Features for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
    • The Audio Unit can now be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X.
    • MIDI FX Audio Units can now be loaded into the plug-in.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for both plug-ins:
    • Fixed issue on Mac when loading sessions created on Windows using VST plug-ins in sub-directories.
    • Fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins that used to crash when unloaded (Image Line, MeldaProduction, Catanya…).
    • VST Plug-in name is now displayed when loaded from a missing VST shell bundle (instead of just the name of the bundle).
    • (Mac) Fixed random crashes when using keyboard shortcuts in the host application to switch between plug-ins or tracks.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters not available for mapping when Audio Unit bridged with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters mapped with wrong range for some Audio Units (u-he, AAS…).
    • (Mac) Fixed parameter changes sent from host not visible in the user interface for some Audio Units (u-he…).
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer 2.4:
    • (Mac) Fixed crash introduced in 2.3 when trying to load missing VST plug-ins.
    • (Mac) Fixed crash after closing the editor of an Audio Unit plug-in loaded with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.

Blue Cat’s PatchWork is available for purchase for 59 EUR / $79 USD. Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer costs 99 EUR / $129 USD. Prices excl. VAT.
The update is free for existing customers.
