Blue Cat Audio has released a new universal connection plugin that can be used to route audio and MIDI almost anywhere “in the box”.

Also described as a “virtual cable for your virtual studio”, Blue Cat’s Connector can stream audio and MIDI in real-time, between any locations that can load plugins, inside one or several applications, on one or several machines connected to a network.

The plugin offers total control over the streaming to achieve the lowest possible latencies (down to 0 samples, when used in a single application), and its built-in resampling and drift compensation algorithms take care of any potential synchronization issues between hosts for a very stable connection, even when no master clock is available.

Blue Cat’s Connector features

  • Universal connection plug-in available in VST, VST3, AAX or Audio Unit format.
  • Create your own audio/MIDI routings inside your DAW (feedback loops allowed).
  • Create connections between any audio software on one or multiple computers.
  • Minimal latency, with full control over buffering.
  • Supports multiple sampling rates on a single connection (built-in resampling).
  • Built-in drift compensation.
  • Send and receive back audio/MIDI with a single instance.

Available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX), Connector is on sale at Blue Cat Audio and from distributors Plugin Boutique and ADSR Sounds for the introduction price of 39 USD/EUR until February 20th, 2022 (regular 49 USD/EUR). Existing customers will receive a special offer by email.
