Blue Cat's Dynamics - Compressor, Gate, Limiter, Expander, Waveshaper Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, VST3) About Blue Cat's Dynamics

"Blue Cat's Dynamics is a very well-specified compander which, with the exception of multi-band capability, offers just about every form of dynamics processing there is, including simulated VCA and opto compression, true downward expansion, gating and limiting. [...] Its strongest suit, to my mind, is the ability to apply both conventional compression and downward expansion at the same time, which is useful if, for example, you have a recording with a wide dynamic range and a lot of background noise.[...] For the price this is a versatile and powerful Swiss Army Knife of dynamics plug-ins." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008


Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix - The All-In-One Multiband Dynamics Processor About Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix

"Blue Cat Audio’s MB-5 Dynamix plug-in [...] is cleverly designed to be both sonically effective and visually informative, clearly borrowing from lessons learned developing the company’s popular Analysis Pack bundle.[...] A quick glance through the MB-5 Dynamix’s set of features illustrates the intelligent and thorough approach that has been taken in putting this plug-in together.[...]

Arguably the most impressive aspect of the MB-5 Dynamix is its ease of use. Pleasingly, this doesn’t mean that there’s any dumbing down of its features, but instead, it sports a cleverly designed interface that allows you to interact intuitively with each of the bands, as well as keeping a close eye (and ear) on the compression taking place.[...]

The sound of the MB-5 Dynamix is clean, functional and efficient.[...] The MB-5 Dynamix really sets itself apart in respect to its usability. [...] It is a safe and effective tool that will allow you to refine rather than destroy all your finely crafted audio masterpieces."

Verdict: "The MB-5 Dynamix is a clean and efficient multi-band compressor that really shines in respect to its usability. Quick to set up and with clear metering, it’s a nicely presented, professional tool."

Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst Multi - Real Time Multi Tracks Spectrum Analyzer (AU, VST, AAX and VST3 Plug-in) About Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst Multi

"You could use it in a mix, to find out which of your tracks are stepping on each other's frequencies, but the obvious application is for mastering, and I quickly found it very useful for comparing my own mixes with reference material. Four memories are available to capture curves, but it's the ability to see multiple analyses together in real time that really makes this an unusual plug-in." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008

Blue Cat's Axiom - Guitar & Bass Amp Simulation With Effects (VST, AU, AAX, VST3, Standalone) About Blue Cat's Axiom

"I own several leading brands of software guitar emulation but Axiom is the first one I have used where the presets actually sound like well recorded real amps and are not instantly given away by the "digital fizz" which marks them as emulations and makes them not sit well in the mix. My initial experience is overwhelmingly positive, a quick tweak of an existing preset on the easy to use HMI and you have an eminently usable sound that sits in the track. In my view Axiom is a significant improvement in the state of the art of guitar amp emulation." - Robert Miller.

[...] There simply is no other plugin on the market today that gives you the ability to create and customize tones the way Destructor and Axiom do." - Honest Amp Sim Reviews - [Read full review].
