Tier 2—High-quality plug-ins
Classic Compressors Bundle
Classic Compressors look, sound, and work just like the real thing. Whether you're just learning to use compression or a seasoned pro polishing a final mix, you'll love these time-proven designs.
Modeled after their respective Red Range hardware counterparts, the Focusrite d2 and d3 bring high quality equalization and professional dynamic control to Pro Tools.
d2 is designed for the audio professional who requires the highest levels of performance and maximum versatility in a software-based equalizer, providing multiple modular configurations. With superior resolution, intuitive graphics, dynamic automation and save/copy/paste options, d2 takes full advantage of the power and capabilities of the Pro Tools environment.
d3 provides flexibility and versatility through separate insert configurations in addition to its highly impressive sonic characteristics. d3 also functions in AudioSuite, providing file-based processing and conservation of DSP resources. Coupled with dynamic automation, multiple inserts and save/copy/paste options, the Focusrite d3 takes full advantage of the power and capabilities of Pro Tools.
The Impact compressor is the first of its kind to bring console-style mix bus compression to Pro Tools and VENUE systems using a familiar user interface and control set.
With support for up to 7.1 channels and sampling rates up to 192 kHz, Impact offers unmatched features and sound quality.
Impact features a clean and well-organized user interface that emulates the look of a console mix bus compressor. Its control set includes four selectable compression ratios and variable controls for Attack, Release, Threshold, and Make-up Gain. The interface includes a Gain Reduction meter that replicates an analog meter with an animated bouncing needle, displaying authentic ballistics as it meters gain reduction. Impact also includes a side-chain input, enabling you to use any Pro Tools audio track as an external key.
Ideal for professional music and post environments where critical control of dynamic program material is essential, the Impact compressor’s ability to go from subtle dynamics smoothing to extreme compression squashing is without peer.
In use by top producers, JOEMEEK gear is the secret weapon that gives your sound the character and excitement it deserves.
Legendary producer Joe Meek used to say, "If it sounds right, it is right." His masterful use of non-linear, sometimes severe compression defined his sound. This bundle includes emulations of two of his classic hardware designs—the Joe Meek SC2 Photo Optical Compressor and VC5 Meequalizer.
JOEMEEK SC2 Photo Optical Compressor—This plug-in is designed purely as an effects compressor. It changes the clarity, balance, and even rhythmic feel of music, enabling you to give your tracks an undeniable edge.
JOEMEEK VC5 Meequalizer—Joe Meek built custom recording circuits in tiny tobacco tins. One of them was a treble and bass equalizer with a sweepable mid control. This plug-in re-creates that exact equalizer circuit used by Joe in his studio, offering simple controls and incredibly warm, musical results. Try it on mono or stereo tracks.
Moogerfoogers® go digital! With authentic analog designs, these Moogerfoogers plug-ins combine the best features of audio effects and vintage synth modules, opening new frontiers for sonic exploration. All four of the following Moogerfoogers are available together in this specially priced bundle:
The Moogerfooger Ring Modulator's wide-range carrier oscillator and dual waveform LFO mean motion on rhythm tracks and radical low-fidelity textures.
The Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter's envelope follower delivers classic '60s and '70s sounds on bass and electric guitar. Or dial up fat analog for any instrument using the 2-pole/4-pole variable resonance filter. Groovy!
The Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser combines a switchable 6- or 12-stage phaser with a wide-ranging, variable LFO. Start with subtle tremolo or radical modulation effects, then crank the distortion and resonant filters for unbelievable new sounds — all with the signature classic Moog sound.
The Moogerfooger Analog Delay is simply the coolest (and warmest!) delay in the digital domain. Due to component shortages, fewer than 1,000 of "real-world" version were made. The designers snagged serial #1 and, as always, meticulously modeled every detail of the classic analog design. Wait until you hear it!
"Moogerfooger plug-ins combine gorgeous and smooth graphics with meticulously crafted signal processing. They're a musician's dream come true: they have the essential sound and responsive interface of the analog originals."
