Blue Cat Audio Dynamics Audio Plug-in

With Blue Cat's unique two-threshold system, this flexible mono/stereo comp/limiter/gate/expander and waveshaper gives you full control over your signal.

Blue Cat's Dynamics is a full-featured dynamics processor -- it can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper, or all at once! The dynamics response of the plug-in can be tweaked with a unique two-threshold system and provides detailed visual feedback about its behavior.

The plug-in includes several filters to control the frequencies affected by the compression. Its continuous VCA/Opto and Peak/RMS control let you smoothly and precisely choose the behavior of the envelope detection like you have never been able to.

The plug-in also provides advanced stereo features, with mid/side processing capability, multiple stereo linking options, and the ability to choose the channels affected by the processor.

- An additional brick wall limiter and clipper with optional lookahead protect the output for complete control over the dynamics response.
- Three different modes are available for external side chaining, using either the external side chain input, MIDI control, or automation lanes.
- All these features can be controlled from a fully configurable user interface, or from any external controller.

The package includes a mono and a stereo version for optimal CPU usage. If you are looking for a multiband dynamics processor, check out Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix plug-in or Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer that can host this plug-in on multiple bands.


- Full featured dynamics processor: compressor, gate, limiter, expander, waveshaper with a unique two read more thresholds system.
- Total control over the processor: continuous peak/RMS and Opto/VCA modes selection, peak envelope shape control, depth control to limit the gain range, lookahead.
- Total control over the signal: dry/wet control for parallel compression, input, and side chain filters.
- Stereo or mid-side processing with multiple channel linking options.
- Post brick wall limiter or clipper with lookahead.
- Optimal monitoring: dynamics response, envelopes, and gain reduction real-time display with zooming capability. The main compression information can be recorded as automation curves.
- Best quality: up to 4x oversampling for the best sounding quality.
- Multiple side chaining modes: a unique way to perform side chain compression, ducking, gating, and much more.
- Fully configurable user interface for the optimal experience.
- No latency (except with lookahead).
- Available in most plug-in formats for Mac and Windows.
- Full MIDI control and automation support, MIDI Learn.
- No CPU load on idle: processing shuts down when fed with silence (optimal CPU usage).
- Customizable user interface with transparency & zoom.
- Automation and MIDI output: record output parameters as automation curves or send MIDI CC messages to other plug-ins for powerful side chain effects.
- Smooth Bypass: noiseless plug-in activation / deactivation.
- Undo/Redo.
