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.
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 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).
