Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer is a unique plug-in that splits the signal into several frequency bands and lets you mix and process them as if they were separate tracks.
Each band proposes controls that can be found 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 "stereo-ness" 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 can also operate as a multi-band VST and Audio Unit host: you can process each band independently with your favorite VST or Audio Unit plug-ins! Up to four plug-ins can be loaded on each band, pre or post fader. Latency compensation, presets management, undo/redo integration, and individual plug-in bypass are included for optimal operation.
And as usual with Blue Cat Audio, the plug-in provides comprehensive visual feedback to let you know what's exactly going on: for each channel, monitor the spectrum, the in/out levels and the frequency response.
Multiband mixing console: adjust the levels, panning and "stereoness" of each band separately.
Multiband VST and Audio Unit Host: insert third party VST and AU plug-ins and process each band independently.
External side chain support for sub plug-ins on each band.
Flexible Audio routing: connect sub plug-ins i/o to any audio channel for multi-mono effects or creative side chain.
Pre and post fader VST/AU plug-in inserts, with full latency compensation.
Up to 7 bands, with crossover filters from 6 to 96 dB/Oct for optimal separation.
Multiple instances linking: group bands within a single instance or between multiple instances of the plug-in. Modify the spectrum on multiple tracks with a single slider.
Bypass, mute, solo on every band.
Mono switch on master for mono compatibility check.
Dual Mode: independent left and right or mid and side channels control.
Complete visual feedback with real time response curves, spectrogram, 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.
Fully customizable modular user interface, with multiple sizes.
No additional latency.
