Blue Cat's PatchWork is a universal plug-ins patchbay that can host up to 64 VST, Format-VST3, Format-AUdio Unit or built-in plug-ins into any Digital Format-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 favourite 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 (full list below). Use the built-in Format-AUdio effects to add colour to your own plug-in chains.

Despite the name, you can forget about wires or cables: configuring plug-ins routing is as simple as adding or removing a row or a column in the rack's matrix. All plug-ins can also communicate with each other or with the host application using the virtual MIDI ports offered by the plug-in.

For each plug-in slot latency compensation, presets management, undo/redo integration, Format-AUdio i/o selection and individual plug-in bypass are included for optimal operation. The plug-in also stores the position of the window for each plug-in so that the layout is restored with your session or saved with presets.

Also, sub-plugins can be Format-AUtomated or controlled with external control surfaces using Blue Cat's PatchWork parameters mapping capabilities.

This product is available as an Format-AUdio plug-in (effect or a virtual instrument) and standalone application so that it can be used alone or inserted on any type of track in your favourite DAW, with up to 16 Format-AUdio channels.

Input and output level meters are also available to monitor the signal that is dispatched to inserted plug-ins, including side chain and Format-AUx channels.
