Focusrite has added even more value to its entire audio interface range with the introduction of the brand new Hitmaker Expansion bundle.
This is not any old bundle of free software, but an expertly selected arsenal of plugins that will provide producers with the essential tools required for creating and finishing tracks.
For making those initial ideas a reality, you can team up Softube’s Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 amp sim, with the likes of XLN Audio’s Addictive Drums 2: Studio Rock Kit. Or if you prefer to start your tracks with keys, then you have a choice of the XLN Addictive Keys and Brainworx bx_oberhausen plugins.
For laying down vocal tracks, you can rest assured that your takes are not only recorded with amazing clarity through Focusrite’s renowned mic preamps but also easily tweaked with Antares Auto-Tune Access, which is exclusively available to the Hitmaker Expansion pack.
Once created, your tracks can then be mixed and mastered, ready for release, with the aid of the Relab LX480 Essentials reverb, Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC and bx_masterdesk. As well as the entire Focusrite Red 2 and 3 plug-in suites.
The Hitmaker Expansion comes with all new Scarlett (Gen 3), Clarett+, Clarett USB and Red audio interfaces registered from 1 October 2021. Considering that a brand new Scarlett 2i2 sets you back just $170, getting over $1300 worth of software is quite the bargain.
