Blue Cat Audio updates PatchWork to v1.63

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 06, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Blue Cat Audio has released version 1.63 of PatchWork, adding to its “universal plug-ins patch bay” the ability to use plug-ins with no user interface and select presets via MIDI.

Blue Cat's PatchWork

Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.63 now includes a default user interface for Audio Unit and VST plug-ins that do not provide one. It is also possible to load instruments and effect chains from a MIDI controller, using program change and bank select messages. Additional compatibility improvements for Mac users have been also added.

Changes in PatchWork v1.63

  • GUI-less plug-ins support: a generic user interface is now provided for VST or AU plug-ins that do not include a graphical editor.
  • Presets can now be selected using MIDI Program change and bank select messages (can be activated with the presets menu/MIDI Program Change item).
  • Fixed issue with some Audio Unit instruments that did not produce any sound (IK Multimedia, Kontakt…)
  • Added log scale support for Audio Unit parameters.

Blue Cat’s PatchWork for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/DX) is available for purchase for 59 EUR/$79 USD (VAT excluded).

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).

    • 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…).
