Blue Cat Audio has updated its Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer and MB-5 Dynamix multiband effects processors.

For both plug-ins, this update fixes the slope of the crossover filters that used to be twice as steep as displayed (factory presets have been modified accordingly). This will help reduce the amount of phase shift when using many bands.

The MB-5 Dynamix plugin now has a new preset browser with built-in search and improved MIDI support for the VST3 format.

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.

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.
