Default 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.



New in Blue Cat's Dynamics 4.2:
- Regular price dropped to 129 EUR/USD.
- Brand new GUI design, with improved usability and touchscreen support.
- The GUI can now be zoomed from 70% to 200%.
- Lock the GUI state to prevent changes when loading presets.
- New lookahead function for the dynamics section.
- New brickwall limiter with optional lookahead.
- Link pre and makeup gain to compensate gain changes.
- Lock GUI state to prevent changes when loading presets.
- 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.
- Save and reload dynamics curves and bands as presets (+copy & paste).
- Now supports retina displays on Mac (text and graphs using high resolution).
- Mac: new installer.
- Mac: fixed minor compatibility issues with Mac OS High Sierra and Mojave.
- Changed demo limitations: up to 5 instances allowed, bypass time changed to half a second, and bypass parameter is not affected anymore.
- Dropped support for Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier.
- Dropped support for legacy RTAS and DirectX plug-ins formats.
- Fully compatible with previous versions of the plug-in (except for VST3 on Mac, as explained here).

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

Pricing:
- 99 EUR/USD instead of 129 (23% off) until February 28th.

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

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.
