Blue Cat's Gain Suite v2.0 DirectX and VST Plugins released 14/08/07
Blue Cat's have released version 2.0 of their Gain Suite. This new version introduces the capability to link the plug-ins together, a brand new user interface, undo/redo support, new preset exchange features and a lot more.
Blue Cat's Gain Suite is freeware and provides Simple Mono, Stereo and Mid-Side MIDI Controllable Gain Plug-ins. Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own wordsâ€¦
â€˜This plug-in suite is a simple series of gain utilities which let you control the volume of an audio track. The interest of these plug-ins resides resides in their particular features:
First, their automation and advanced MIDI control capabilities (the response curve of the MIDI controllers can be fully customized). Used together with one of our analysis tools or a MIDI controller, these plug-ins let you remotely control and automate the gain of each channel of the audio signal.
Another interesting and exclusive feature is the ability to link several instances of the same plug-in: thanks to our unique data sharing technology, you can control the gain of several tracks at the same time, with advanced response curve capabilities.
The plug-in bundle contains a stereo and a mid/side version for independent control of the left and right or mid and side channels. It can be very useful for stereo widening/narrowing. Additional information about stereo widening with mid/side processing can be found in this paper.
Last but not least, the skinning capabilities of this plug-in allow you to customize the way you interact with it.â€™ Main Features
