Blue Cat Audio has released a free update for Blue Cat’s Plug’n Script, an audio and MIDI scripting software that can be programmed to create your own effects or virtual instruments inside most DAWs.

Version 3.32 of the plugin adds official support for Apple M1 processors, many new MIDI and audio I/O features, as well as other improvements and fixes.

With this plugin, you can write your own plugin with very little knowledge about programming. If you do not care about programming, Blue Cat’s Plug’n Script can also be used as a regular multi-effects processor with existing scripts or to get someone else to write this very particular utility you have been searching for for years and cannot find anywhere.

If you are an experienced programmer, you will find in Plug’n Script a powerful development environment for audio plugins: prototype algorithms quickly, generate a state-of-the-art graphical user interface (GUI) without a single line of code, and export a VST plugin, right from within your favourite DAW! Creating a plug-in has never been so fast!
