Blue Cat's PatchWork2.42

07 January 2020

Virtual patchbay for audio plug-ins.

Overview

Blue Cat's PatchWork is a universal plug-ins patchbay that can host up to 64 VST, VST3, Audio Unit or built-in plug-ins into any Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in one instance.

It is possible to chain effects in series or create up to 8 parallel chains that can be activated independently. This lets you create your favorite effects or instruments configurations within the plug-in, without the need for multiple busses. These configurations can be saved as presets and recalled instantly, or shared with multiple DAWs, using any plug-in format. Use the built-in audio effects to add color to your own plug-in chains.

Main Features:
  • Configurable VST, VST3 or Audio Unit plug-ins rack: host up to 64 third party plug-ins or instruments in series or parallel.
  • 29 built-in effects: Reverb, EQ, filters, pitch & frequency shifter, delays, modulation effects, compressor, gate, bit crusher, wave shaper and more.
  • Available as an effect, virtual instrument or standalone application.
  • Build your own effects chains: up to 8 "pre" and "post" plug-ins slots to chain plug-ins in series.
  • Parallel processing made easy: up to 8 parallel plug-ins chains, with phase flip, solo and gain controls.
  • Host up to 8 virtual instruments in parallel and mix them within the plug-in.
