GG Audio has released an update to Blue3, a vintage tonewheel organ instrument for Windows and Mac.

Version 1.1.0 includes a separate plugin that consists of the Tube Overdrive and Rotary Cabinet simulations from Blue3.
Blue3Rotary allows you to route any audio through overdrive and swirling speakers, just as if the audio signal was sent into a vintage 122/147 cabinet.

Additionally, some minor bug and performance fixes were introduced.
