Paris, France, 2019/06/12:
Blue Cat Audio has released an update for its multiple tracks audio analyzers, Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst Multi, Oscilloscope Multi, and StereoScope Multi, and launched special offers on all its analysis and metering plug-ins. The new versions of the three plug-ins come with an updated zoomable graphical user interface to improve readability on any type of screen.
And audio analysis is now performed in the background, which greatly improves CPU usage and does not affect audio performance anymore, whatever the number of instances running in a session.

Presets management has also been improved, so that recalling your favorite analysis configurations is much faster. The update contains many other improvements and a few bug fixes (full list below).
Developed in collaboration with renowned producer/engineer Tony Visconti, Tverb features three independent reverbs and two movable microphones. The virtual room was modeled on the legendary Meistersaal at Berlin’s Hansa studios, where Visconti recorded David Bowie's Heroes back in 1977.
