For those who are in the position to be staying at home during these challenging times, Focusrite wants to help make it as easy as possible for you to stay creative. So, for a one-off Plug-in Collective special, they have partnered up with AudioThing to bring you the SR-88 plug-in for free as a limited-time giveaway for all members. AudioThing’s SR-88 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 analog sounds: kick, snare, hi hat 1, hi hat 2, and cymbal, which can be pitched, panned or mixed independently. You can shape the sound with the low-pass filter (zero delay feedback), overdrive, compressor and reverb. The sequencer lets you easily build patterns, then flip each track’s sequence using the ‘random’ function. The result is limitless combinations and unusual patterns, which bring new creative aspects to your songs. Sequences can be dragged and dropped to your DAW/host, making it easy to build ideas quickly. AudioThing SR-88 is compatible with Mac and PC, in AU, VST2, VST3 and 64-bit AAX formats. To join Plug-in Collective, simply register any Focusrite hardware product, then look out for a new offer every couple of months. No one else works with software manufacturers like Focusrite does to bring you inspirational tools for your next production. Find out more here: https://novationmusic.com/en/sound-collective
The AudioThing SR-88 offer expires on April 27th 2020, and is running in addition to the Serato Sample LE plug-in already available as part of Plug-in Collective.
