This month we give you not one but two free plugins. First up, Choric Quartet is a slimmed down version of Caelum Audio's advanced chorus and unison plugin Choric, available exclusively for readers ahead of a later general release. Our second offering is Excite Audio Lifeline Console Lite, a vintage-focussed multi-effect plugin worth $49, which readers can access free via a coupon. Finally, on top of that, you'll receive our usual handcrafted set of samples plus a Loopmasters demo selection.
