Blue Cat Audio has announced availability of new versions of Blue Cat’s PatchWork, Axiom, Late Replies and MB-7 Mixer, its multi-effects processors which are also capable of hosting third party plugins.

Blue Cat ToneMap

The new versions add new presets exploration and morphing capabilities with “Tones Maps” for 9 built-in plugins, new presets for the built-in Wah plugin, as well as several performance improvements and bug fixes.

Changes in updated plugins

  • Navigate presets and create new tones easily with “Tone Maps” for 9 built-in effects: Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Wah, Sweep Filter, EQ, Freq Shifter, Reverb and Waveshaper.
  • New presets for the built-in wah plug-in.
  • Built-in EQ (and Axiom Amp Sim): improved impulse response convolution performance (long reverb tails are now supported, with low CPU usage).
  • Mac: faster GUI rendering on recent Mac OS systems (up to 5x faster for level meters).
  • Mac: fixed user interface not properly shown on retina displays in some applications built with the 10.14 Mac OS SDK (Cubase 10.5 for example).
  • Mac: fixed settings panel rendering issues in dark mode on Mac OS Mojave and newer.
  • Fixed issue with some VST3 plug-ins that failed to initialize when loaded (Roland Cloud VST3)
  • Fixed built-in Wah plug-in that could exceed selected range in reverse mode.
  • PatchWork: Mac standalone application now fully supports dark mode on Mac OS Mojave and newer.
  • Axiom: Improved built-in tuner performance.

The plugins are available for purchase at the Blue Cat online store and from distributor Plugin Boutique.

The update is free to owners of the full version. Demo versions are available in most plugin formats for Windows and Mac (and as a standalone application for PatchWork and Axiom).
