Found in professional studios the world over, Focusrite’s Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor have been emulated into a plug-in suite released by Focusrite at NAMM 2015 today.
Focusrite claim the Red 2 and Red 3 plug-ins both create a faithful reproduction of the natural sonic qualities of the original units. These will be the first Focusrite plug-ins featuring compatibility and support for 64-bit AU, VST and AAX, especially great news for Pro Tools users currently working on version 10 and above. The Red 2 EQ features a 6-band design, with both high and low pass filters and frequency shelving plus a fully parametric low-mid and high-mid frequency bands. The Red 3 Compressor comes in the shape of the original VCA design, with incredibly natural dynamic control over pretty much anything you throw at it.
Focusrite are being exceptionally generous this year and will be bundling the Red2 and Red3 plugins with all newly registered Focusrite Scarlett, Saffire, Forte and Clarett interfaces as of January 22nd 2015, so to get your hands on these great emulations for FREE, simply register your new interface as soon as you buy it! Estimated MSRP is £229.99.
