Blue Cat's Dynamics 4.2 Released, with new GUI, dual lookahead and more
 
Dear Pro Tools Users,

We are happy to unleash Blue Cat's Dynamics 4.2, a new version of our all-in-one broadband dynamics plug-in that can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all combined at once.

With a brand new user interface (fully zoomable), dual lookahead capabilities and many new features and enhancements (full list below), this new version offers even more control over the dynamics of the audio signal with a greatly improved workflow. It is also available at a cheaper price (129 EUR/USD instead of 149).

Upgrade to the new version is free for existing customers. A special introduction price (23% off the plug-in) is available until February 28th. Demo versions are available for download on www.bluecataudio.com, in most popular plug-in formats for Mac and PC.

Impressive, is there anything this compressor can't do? Perfect tool to teach compression in all its forms. Thanks!

EDIT. Well yes, multiband, but then you make Dynamix MB-5 [emoji846]

Have there been any changes from the beta which I downloaded the day it became available? If there aren't should I still download & install the release version?

I like what was done and being able to move plugins in slots from Dynamics to Patchwork or such is neat.

Thanks BC for another great update.

This is the exact same binary as the preview - no change has been made this time!
