Blue Cat Audio MB-5 Dynamix

Blue Cat Audio has announced the release of MB-5 Dynamix, a powerful multiband dynamics processing plug-in effect for Windows and Mac.

Blue Cat’s MB-5 Dynamix is an all-in-one multiband dynamics processor that can act as a multiband compressor, limiter, expander, gate or waveshaper. It offers up to 5 separate bands and all types of effects can be combined together. Its advanced internal side chaining capabilities enable unique interactions between spectral bands or audio channels. This results in finer control of the dynamics response and unprecedented flexibility. The plug-in offers premium visual feedback about its internal processors thanks to several real-time meters and curves. It supports the VST, RTAS, Audio Unit or DirectX formats on both Mac and PC. As a side note, this is the first plug-in of the editor that also includes a 64-bit VST version for Mac.

The plug-in can be purchased alone or within the refreshed Blue Cat’s Master Pack and Blue Cat’s All Plugins Pack bundles. It is also part of the brand new Energy Pack plug-ins package which also includes Blue Cat’s Dynamics, Blue Cat’s Protector and Blue Cat’s Digital Peak Meter Pro. All these products are available at a special introduction price (up to 20% off) until the end of the month, while existing Blue Cat Audio customers have access to crossgrade offers.
