Blue Cat Audio has released version 3.0 of Plug’n Script, a new version of the scripting plugin that can be programmed to create custom audio and MIDI effects or virtual instruments inside most DAWs.

Blue Cat's Plug'n Script 3.0

The plugin allows you to write your own plugin with very little knowledge about programming.

Initially released in 2014 to add scripting capabilities to your favorite DAW, Plug’n Script V3 has now evolved into an integrated audio plug-ins development environment, with a brand new graphical user interface with streamlined workflow and VST plug-in export capabilities.

It has never been so easy to create VST plug-ins!
