Focusrite teams up with McDSP for interface and plug-in bundle

Audio interface design firm Focusrite has teamed up with plug-in developer McDSP for a new interface and plug-in bundle.

All registered customers of a Focusrite Red 4Pre, Red 8Pre or Red 16Line Thunderbolt and Pro Tools | HD audio interface will receive a free 12-month subscription to McDSP's All Access HD plug-in pack, worth $499.99

Including 24 of industry-acclaimed plug-ins for AAX DSP, AAX Native, AU, VST and VST3 applications, McDSP's All Access pack features dynamics, EQ, reverb, virtual tape machines and modulation plug-ins.

It's the ideal package for the engineer who needs a wide palette of powerful plug-ins to effortlessly get the sounds they are looking for. It even includes the SA-2 Dialog Processor that McDSP just received an Emmy for.

Focusrite's Red interfaces offer flexibility with connectivity to Pro Tools | HD via DigiLink, and Core Audio via Thunderbolt, all without the need for option cards. The same can be said about McDSP's plug-ins, with support for every major DAW whether native- or DSP-based.

It's this synergy that Red Product Manager Will Hoult highlights is key.

“I've long admired the McDSP plug-ins particularly since the products were expanded to include AU and VST support,” said Hoult. “The fact that we can now offer our clients the combination of a superb interface with a class-leading plug-in pack, both of which are transferable between software applications, is amazing.”

Colin McDowell, McDSP CEO, added: “Focusrite has a long history of bringing high quality pro audio products to the market, and McDSP is delighted to partner with them in this bundle. We look forward to expanding our market reach together!”

Taking effect immediately, the bundle is available to registered owners of Red 4Pre, Red 8Pre and Red 16Line interfaces, and includes registrants since 26th April 2017.
