Wondering what people have to say about our software? Here is a random selection of comments and press reviews from great people who use our software:

Blue Cat's Plug'n Script - Scriptable audio / MIDI effects processor and virtual instrument About Blue Cat's Plug'n Script

"An amazing piece of software, it makes possible prototyping new digital signal processing algorithms in a few minutes. And now with the latest version of Plug'n Script, the scripts are running really fast!

Great tool for newcomers who want to familiarize with audio development or for professionnal developers who want to hear quickly what their algorithm sounds like." - Ivan Cohen, Developer - Musical Entropy.


Blue Cat's Chorus - Smooth Chorus Effect (AU, VST, RTAS, AAX and DX Plug-in) (Freeware) About Blue Cat's Chorus

The generous offering of a full range of time based modulators consists of very basic but powerful and versatile effects. The Blue Cat Chorus for example, is ALWAYS the first one I try for super rich detuning and haywire coloured effects, but at the same time, I find it can throw just the right wisp of mist into a warm string pad. - Max Debutante


Blue Cat's Dynamics - Compressor, Gate, Limiter, Expander, Waveshaper Plug-In (VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, DX) 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 Flanger - Classic Flanging Effect Audio Plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, AAX, DirectX) (Freeware) About Blue Cat's Flanger

The Blue Cat Flanger and Blue Cat Phaser are capable of a wealth of sound variations that belies their simple looking interfaces. - Max Debutante


Blue Cat's Analysis Pack - Audio Analysis Tools and Audio to MIDI Plugins Bundle (VST, AU, DX, RTAS) About Blue Cat's Analysis Pack

"This is a remarkable set of plug-ins. This company impresses me more and more with each update and release. I believe these tools should define the standard for audio analysis. They are totally worth demoing to see if they can be of use to you.[...] I know of no free or payware plugs that achieve some of the unique things these particular analysers can do. [...]"

This company is quickly approaching the pinnacle of digital effects for musicians." - Paul "triple P" Evans, Wusik Magazine.

Blue Cat's Protector - Brickwall Limiter Plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, DX) About Blue Cat's Protector

After trying Protector, I dare say this is one of the most transparent limiters I've tried to date! This limiter is a perfect addition to the Blue Cat Audio lineup - great work! - Jeremy Dahl, audiogazette


Blue Cat's Analysis Pack - Audio Analysis Tools and Audio to MIDI Plugins Bundle (VST, AU, DX, RTAS) About Blue Cat's Analysis Pack

"Ever wanted to analyse every track in a project at once, or record their dynamic variations as MIDI Controller information? Blue Cat Audio's unusual plug-ins implement some original and very clever features."

"They've got plenty of good ideas, and in the shape of FreqAnalyst Multi they've created a unique tool that's very useful. Serious metering and analysis tools are often very expensive, so the inexpensive nature of these plug-ins makes them all the more welcome." - Sound On Sound Magazine - May 2008


Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst - Real Time Spectrum Analysis Plug-in (VST, Audio Unit, RTAS, AAX, DX) (Freeware) About Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst

Blue Cat strikes again with another quality product! [...] I really enjoyed this one on the last mix-down I had to do. It did a nice job and was pretty accurate. Jean-Patrice Remillard, www.pheek.com


Blue Cat's All Plug-Ins Pack - All Our Professional Audio Plugins in a Single Bundle (AU, VST, DX, RTAS, AAX) About Blue Cat's All Plugins Pack

"Blue Cat Audio are among the most prolific programmers around, with a line-up that already encompasses too many processors to list. These range from simple freeware utilities and modulation effects to sophisticated mastering tools bristling with unique features.[...] Four of their most innovative plug-ins [...], as far as I know, have no direct equivalent from other manufacturers." - 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."
