Focusrite is letting you download top-quality free plugins from big-name developers


What’s better than a plugin? A free plugin. And what’s better than a free plugin? A plugin that usually costs money but you can download for nothing.

Happily, this is exactly what you can get if you become part of Focusrite’s Plug-in Collective, an initiative that sees registered owners of the company’s products being offered exclusive free plugins from some of the industry’s biggest names on a bi-monthly basis. Not only that, but those who are part of the collective are also entitled to exclusive offers, tutorial content and more.

The Plug-in Collective means you can take advantage of the super-low latency levels of Focusrite’s current audio interfaces, which enable you to use multiple plugins in realtime. The company’s plug-in partners include the likes of iZotope, AudioThing, Eventide, Positive Grid, Sugar Bytes and Applied Acoustics Systems, so you can pretty much guarantee that you’ll be in line to receive some high-quality software.

This month’s offer is from d16 Group; you can currently download the superb Sigmund multi-tap delay for free (regular price is €69), while everything else in the company’s range can be had at a 50% discount.

The Plug-in Collective isn’t the only benefit you’ll get if you buy one of Focusrite’s interfaces, either: you’ll also get the Red Plugin Suite; XLN Addictive Keys; Softube Time & Tone plugin bundle; the Focusrite Creative Edition of Pro Tools | First, which includes another 12 free plugins; Ableton Live Lite; and 2GB of Loopmasters samples. So, as well as having a reliable, high-performance audio interface in your studio, you’ll also be getting your hands on pretty much everything you need to make music with it.
