Blue Cat Audio Premiers MB-7 Mixer Plug-In
Blue Cat Audio has premiered the MB-7 Mixer, a unique plug-in for Mac and PC that splits the signal into several frequency bands and let you mix them as if they were separate tracks.
Each band proposes controls that you can find on a mixing console, and more: bypass, mute or solo each band separately to isolate frequencies you want to work on, adjust the gain, the “stereoness” and the position in the stereo field. When manipulating the stereo image, a master mono switch also lets you check mono compatibility.
The plug-in also proposes unique linking and grouping options due to the multi-instances technology. You can link bands together within a single instance or between several instances of the plug-in on different tracks. This lets a simple fader control as many bands on as many tracks as you want. This is particularly useful when adjusting the placement or the balance of several competing tracks.
» Multiband mixing console: adjust the levels, panning and stereoness of each band separately.
» Multiple instances linking: group bands within a single instance or between multiple instances of the plug-in, and modify the spectrum on multiple tracks with a single slider.
» Up to 7 bands, with crossover filters from 6 to 96 dB/Oct for optimal separation.
» Bypass, mute, solo on every band.
» Mono switch on master for mono compatibility check.
» Complete visual feedback with real time response curves and levels display for each band.
» Side chaining made easy: a unique way to perform multi-band side chain compression, ducking, gating and much more.
» Plug-in window transparency management.
» No latency
