The Focusrite Red Plug-In Suite provides legendary sounds
and work flow derived from the classic Red series outboard, this plug-in suite
is now free with all Scarlett, Saffire, Forte and Clarett Interfaces. The Red Plug-In
Suite includes Red 2 & Red 3.
The original Red 2 is derived from the
ISA 110 equalizer circuits, initially designed for the sidecar upgrade of the
Neve console at Sir George Martin’s Air Studios, London. Its flexible 6-band
configuration with high and low-pass filters is powerful and responsive. Distinguished
by its subjectively warm and smooth sound, the Red 2 is extremely versatile and
remains highly sought-after.
The Red 3
similarly, uses the same circuit topology as the ISA130 compressor module,
based around an innovative proprietary VCA design that earned Focusrite a TEC
award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in Signal Processing Technology.
The Red 3 is famous for being able to retain a natural sound, even when
significant compression is being applied. As such, it has remained the choice
of many of the world’s finest mix engineers, such as Chris Lord-Alge, who
continues to religiously place his Red 3 over the mix-bus.
Both of these circuits have now been painstakingly emulated
to provide the best audio quality and as authentic of a sound as possible for your studio, the software package is VST, AU and AAX compatible.
This plug in bundle is available with all Scarlett, Saffire,
Forte and Clarett audio Interfaces when you buy from Kazbar systems.
