Blue Cat Audio has released an update for Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer, its audio plug-ins that can host third party VST and AU plug-ins.


This new version adds for both plug-ins a new quick save option for the last loaded preset and fixes latency reporting issues with some VST hosts such as Cubase.

It also fixes a feedback problem in some particular cases when the plug-ins are bypassed in Pro Tools.

Changes in Blue Cat’s PatchWork v1.71 / MB-7 Mixer v2.51

  • Last loaded preset can now be quickly saved from the presets menu without having to select the file.
  • VST: fixed latency compensation reporting in Cubase (no need to re-enable the plug-in to update the latency anymore).
  • AAX and RTAS: fixed a feedback loop that could occur in bypass mode when the plug-in was inserted before another one.

Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer are available for purchase for 59 EUR / $79 USD and 99 EUR / $129 USD, respectively. The update is free for existing customers.
