Default Blue Cat Audio Free Plug-Ins Update

Dear Pro Tools Users,

We are happy to celebrate the end of the year with an update for Blue Cat's Freeware Pack, our bundle of 7 free plug-ins, and winter promotions.

This new version of the free plug-ins include many improvements and fixes (details below). It is a recommended update for all users and it is fully compatible with the previous version.

https://www.bluecataudio.com//Vault/...ain_medium.png

All these plug-ins (Blue Cat's Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, FreqAnalyst, Gain Suite, Triple EQ and Free Amp) are 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 www.bluecataudio.com.

At this occasion, we have also launched winter promotions, with up to 50% off plug-ins and applications until January 10th. Existing customers are granted an extra 10% discount during the year-end promotions period, with a coupon received by email.

What's New In All Plug-Ins:
- MIDI Program Change preference is now saved into session instead of global preferences, so each instance can now use different MIDI channels. It is also saved in the user default preset.
- VST3: added program change support for VST3 plug-in format.
- Mac: much faster GUI rendering on recent Mac OS systems.
- Mac: fixed user interface not properly shown on retina displays in some applications built with the 10.14 Mac OS SDK (Cubase 10.5 for example).
- Mac: fixed settings panel rendering issues in dark mode on Mac OS Mojave and newer.
- VST: the user interface is now properly resized in Cubase on Windows when loading skins.
- Dropped support for legacy RTAS plug-in format.

What's New In Blue Cat's Free Amp 1.12:
- Improved convolution performance for large impulse responses.

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

Enjoy!

Seems like a good time to upgrade some of my VST hosting plugins.

Unfortunately, I never seem to receive any emails from you guys. I changed my email address a while back and requested my registration etc. to be linked to my new email, but it does t appear to have happened.

This is probably the wrong place to request support on the matter, but it kinda just popped in my head when I read about the sale.

I’ll definitely try again. I plan to do some studio re-installs over the break, so will be doing some studio updates.

Cheers.

There is a problem with the free plugin updates - when I started ProTools 2019.6 it said the four updated plugins wouldn't load because they were not valid 64 bit aax plugins and offered to move them to the unused plugins folder. If I don't move them to the unused plugins folder the session hangs on restoring audio track playlists.

I should mention that the au version in Digital Performer 9.52 on this same machine passes their plugin validation no problem.

We are currently double checking. It seems to be a code signing issue on the binaries. We will get back to you asap.

Works perfect now. There have been times I've used the flanger & chorus where nothing else I have in those types of plugins fits the tune.
