Default Blue Cat's PatchWork 2.2 [Now 2.3] Free Update - with drag and drop for plug-ins

Hi,

We are happy to announce a free update for Blue Cat's PatchWork, our virtual patchbay for plug-ins with built-in effects.

This new version includes 4 new built-in audio effects (reverb, harmonizer, wah, mute), many new presets and major performance improvements. It also includes a few bug fixes. This is a recommended free update for everyone (full change list below).

The update for V2 users can be downloaded for free from the same location as the original full version (link received by email upon purchase). For users still on version 1, an upgrade link is available from the same page.

For others, a demo version is available on bluecataudio.com as a standalone application and in most plug-in formats for Mac and PC.



What's New in PatchWork 2.2:
- Added 4 new built-in plug-ins (reverb, harmonizer, wah, mute).
- New factory presets.
- Major presets loading improvements: hosted plug-ins are now reloaded only when changed, and updated otherwise. Improves performance and audio rendering when loading presets using the same plug-ins.
- Faster GUI loading / instantaneous GUI display after it has been opened once.
- Performance and memory usage improvements.
- Fixed: changing bypass in the Audio Unit version did not update host application's bypass state.
- Fixed: bypass buttons are now in sync with the hosted plug-ins' state.
- Win: fixed copy/paste that sometimes stopped working until next app restart.
- Mac: fixed crash in Ableton Live when hitting space bar while a sub plug-in window is opened

System requirements:
- Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.7 or newer.
- Windows PC running Windows Vista or newer.

Pricing:
Blue Cat's PatchWork: 99 EUR or $99

Default Blue Cat's PatchWork 2.3 Free Update Released

Hi there,

We are very happy to finally unleash another free update for Blue Cat's PatchWork, our virtual patchbay for plug-ins with built-in effects!

This new version adds drag and drop support to move, duplicate or insert plug-ins anywhere in the plug-ins matrix. It also brings Blue Cat's Axiom's impulse response loader into the built-in EQ plug-in and includes several bug fixes and performance enhancements (full change list below).

The update for V2 users can be downloaded for free from the same location as the original full version (link received by eail upon purchase). For users still on version 1, an upgrade link is available from the same page. If you are not a customer yet, a demo version is available on bluecataudio.com as a standalone application and in most plug-in formats for Mac and PC.

What's New in PatchWork V2.3:
- Drag and drop plug-ins between slots.
- Hold the alt key on Mac and Ctrl key on windows to copy (duplicate) a plug-in instead of moving it.
- Drop the plug-in before another to insert it in the chain.
- Drag and drop plug-ins between several instances of PatchWork or across plug-ins (compatible with the latest preview of Late Replies, MB-7 Mixer and Axiom).
- Drag and drop .dll, .vst, .vst3, or .component files directly from the Finder or Explorer onto plug-in slots.
- Drag and drop .plgnfo files (previously saved from the software) directly from the Finder or Explorer onto plug-in slots.
- Built-in EQ plug-in can now load and manipulate impulse responses (IR).
- Fixed: effect tail not processed anymore when just inserted on a track (avoids using CPU when not necessary).
- Fixed: built-in multitap delay plug-in could get out of sync in some host applications.
- Improved performance of the built-in EQ plug-in.
- Improved performance when saving preset/session with many built-in plug-ins.

System requirements:
- Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.7 or newer.
- Windows PC running Windows Vista or newer.

Pricing:
Blue Cat's PatchWork: 99 EUR or $99

PatchWork just keeps getting better and better! Drag and drop is a great addition, a real time saver.

Merci beaucoup Blue Cat!

Thanks for the heads up. I use PW all the time and have always liked it a lot.



It would be nice if we could label the assignable knobs (the ones at the bottom). Is there any thought to that?

It indeed makes a big difference! I bet you will never go back to 2.2 once you have tried it!
