I have been using Blue Cat's PatchWork software for a few months now and I am really liking what it has to offer. It is best suited for those who are looking for a comprehensive plugin solution for their DAW-based setup. It provides a great range of features for controlling, managing and routing of multiple audio plugins. The user interface is also very intuitive and user-friendly.
