Focusrite has unveiled a new offer for its Plug-in Collective community from 8 February to 29 March. The availability of free AudioThing software Valve Exciter, Valve Filter and SR-88 coincides with a 50% discount off AudioThing’s other plug-ins and sample libraries. Registered Focusrite hardware users can access the free software and discount from their Focusrite accounts.
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.
Plug-in Collective is the community between you, Focusrite and the biggest software brands. Keeping up to date with the tidal wave of releases is vital if you want to find great plug-ins – and Plug-in Collective will do it for you, enabling you to download free software and benefit from the best discounts.
All you have to do is register Focusrite gear, and one offer will be featured in your Focusrite account every couple of months. Nobody else works with software manufacturers like Focusrite, giving users all the right plug-ins for their next production.
