Free Download: Focusrite Plug-In Collective
Published on 21 February 2018
Continuing a run of awesome freebies, Focusrite have been knocking it out of the park with their Plug-In collective, a scheme which allows their customers to download software completely free, simply for registering their Focusrite device. We absolutely love the idea of chucking in some top quality music software to help people get started and inspired to create; so, we thought we'd give you a rundown of what's on offer this month! Partnering up with plugin legends, AudioThing, this month you can grab three seriously powerful plugs!
Valve Exciter (normally costs €45) is a Harmonic Enhancer plug-in with vintage valve emulation. The exciter section features hand-tuned filters with the ability to sweep the centre frequencies via the Harmonics knob. The valve section is modelled after a softer custom version of the vintage Telefunken ECC83 tubes with drive, triode/pentode mode and bias settings.
Valve Filter VF-1 (normally costs €25) is a multimode resonant filter plug-in with vintage valve emulation. The filter section is modelled after a classic ladder filter with low-pass and high-pass modes. The valve section is modelled after the vintage Telefunken ECC83 tubes but with added grit and custom gain control. Valve Filter works great from subtle warbles to full-track filtering effects.
SR-88 (normally costs €29) is a sample-based plug-in emulation of the Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88, a rare analogue drum machine from the 80s. The instrument features five classic analogue sounds: Kick, Snare, Hi-Hat 1, Hi-Hat 2, and Cymbal, which can be pitched, panned or mixed independently. You can additionally shape the sound with the Low Pass Filter (Zero Delay Feedback), Overdrive, Compressor and Reverb. The sequencer lets you easily build patterns that can be dragged and dropped to your DAW/host.
Between the three of these, there's loads of potential to shake up your projects and invigorate your music. All you need to do is register a Focusrite device before the 29th March 2018 to receive these plug-ins for free, plus get 50% off any other AudioThing products. If you’ve previously registered an interface, the plug-ins will be ready and waiting for you within your Focusrite account!
