Focusrite’s New AAX Supported Plugins Make Focusrite
Interfaces the Perfect Partners For Pro Tools®
The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, January 22, 2015 — Focusrite (booth 6464) introduces the Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite, featuring 64-bit AU, VST and AAX compatibility. These are the first Focusrite plug-ins to include AAX support, making them compatible with Pro Tools® 10 and 11. With its introduction, the new Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite is bundled with all Focusrite Scarlett, Saffire, Forte, and Clarett audio interfaces.
The new plug-ins are accurate models of Focusrite’s classic Red 2 equalizer and Red 3 compressor hardware. Coveted by producers and engineers for their exceptional clarity and versatility, the original units are prized fixtures in professional recording studios the world over. Now, the Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite lets you exploit the famous natural sound of the originals, conveniently from within your audio software.
The plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sonic qualities of the hardware, allowing you to get detailed tonal control of your mix. The Red 2 EQ is a sweet sounding 6-band design, with high/low pass filters, high/low frequency shelves, and fully parametric low-mid, and high-mid frequency bands. The Red 3 compressor is a VCA compressor design, excellent for natural sounding dynamic control of drums, bass, vocals, and acoustic instruments.
Registered Scarlett, Saffire, and Forte customers* can download the new plug-ins for free, adding to their Focusrite software bundles. Focusrite are acclaimed for their best-in-class audio interfaces, from Scarlett to Clarett. Now, with the addition of AAX plug-ins, Focusrite audio interfaces are reaffirmed as perfect partners for Pro Tools®.
The Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite joins Focusrite's AU, VST, and RTAS compatible Midnight and Scarlett Plug-in Suites, making Focusrite interfaces ideally suited for all major audio software.
