Default Blue Cat's Freeware Pack II Update / Year-end promotions

Dear Pro Tools Users,

To celebrate our 15 years in the audio software business, we have just released an update for the Freeware Pack bundle and launched year-end promotions.

The new version of the free plug-ins bundle now includes the Free Amp plug-in that was available separately. The user interfaces of the 6 other plug-ins have been refreshed with the new Blue Cat Audio design, and they are now fully zoomable. The spectrum analyzer now performs most of the computation in the background, freeing up resources for other audio processing tasks. This update includes many other improvements and fixes detailed below.

These 7 plug-ins (Blue Cat's Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, FreqAnalyst, Gain Suite, Triple EQ and Free Amp) are still 100% free and do not require any registration, dongle, or mailing list subscription. They are available for download separately or as part of the Freeware Pack bundle on our website.

It is also the occasion for us to launch end of year promotions, with up to 40% off plug-ins and applications until the end of December. Existing customers are granted an extra 10% discount during the year-end promotions period, with a coupon received by email.



What's New in Blue Cat's Free Amp 1.11:
- Improved convolution performance for the impulse response loader on multicore processors.
- Now included in the Free Pack bundle.

What's New in all other plug-ins:
- Refreshed GUI design, with improved usability and improved touchscreen support.
- The GUI can now be zoomed from 70% to 200%.
- Added Retina displays support on Mac (text and graphs using high resolution).
- Last loaded preset is now remembered in session and displayed in the presets menu.
- Plug-in state can now be reverted to the last loaded preset.
- New installer on Mac.
- Fixed minor compatibility issues with Mac OS High Sierra and Mojave.
- Dropped support for Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier.
- Dropped support for legacy DirectX plug-in format.
- Fully compatible with previous versions of the plug-in (except for VST3 format on Mac, as explained in this blog post).

Additional changes for Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst 2.3:
-Fixed: audio did not pass thru the plug-in in some VST3 hosts.
-Spectrum analysis is now performed in the background and does not affect audio performance.

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

Price: Free!

Enjoy!

Great news, thanks. Will installing the new bundle overwrite the old versions, or do we end up with both?

There is stuff in this bundle that I've been using for years without the need to replace.

The new versions simply replace the old ones and are fully compatible (except for VST3 on Mac, but who cares about VST3 in Pro Tools anyway?)
