Focusrite Plug-in Collective Latest

This month Focusrite Plug-in Collective members can download for FREE Magnetite (usually $89) from German developer Black Rooster Audio from the 9th of July to the 3rd of September.

As well as that, throughout the same period, Plug-in Collective members can also find a discount code in their Focusrite account with which they can buy Black Rooster’s Compressor Bundle for just $249. Normally retailing for $684, this incredible compressor plug-in six-pack comprises analogue- modelled emulations of five vintage classics, and an all-new zero-latency design created in collaboration with multi-platinum mix engineer Koen Heldens.

Magnetite is the go-to plug-in for infusing your digital productions with the sonic texture and energy of analogue tape. Beef up your drums and basses, boost vocal presence or bring cohesion and colouration to your master bus with Magnetite.

Magnetite is an effortless and instant solution for adding palpable analogue vibes, weight and character to your individual tracks and group busses. Producers of lo-fi, synthwave and other retro styles will particularly find direct relevance to this plug-in for its ability to evocative fluctuations and creative noise to their tracks.

Here’s what Jonathan Campbell, Plug-in Collective Product Manager had to say on Magnetite: “What I most enjoy about using this plug-in is the variation in tape types available, and the wide range of effects you can achieve with them. Used on a drum bus, it adds a really nice saturation and glueing effect, and just by driving the input, you can add a load of crunch and fatness. Magnetite can be used on most sounds to get a more tape feel, and it’s super easy to get quick results with!”

Jonathan Campbell, Plug-in Collective Product Manager comments:
“This month we’re teaming up with our friends at Positive Grid to bring you BIAS FX LE 2, an all-in-one guitar effects unit. A couple of standout features make this an absolute must for any guitarist.

My favourite feature is Guitar Match, which literally lets you change the sound of your guitar to that of a completely different one. It’s a truly revolutionary feature and paired with BIAS FX 2 LE’s highly customisable guitar effects chains, and it gave me total control over the tones I could produce with my own guitar. If you’re a guitarist, you’ll lose hours messing around and having fun with Bias FX LE 2.”
