After months of repair, tuning, and careful listening, the Soundtoys engineers meticulously modeled the rich and spacious sound of their favorite plate from this collection.

Little Plate is available for free through November 22, 2017 (reg. $99).*

*Soundtoys 5 and Soundtoys 5 Academic bundle owners have already received a free license for Little Plate in their accounts, and all future Soundtoys 5 and Soundtoys 5 Academic purchases and upgrades will come with a license for Little Plate.

 

Focusrite adds FREE AAS Session Bundle to the Plug-in Collective for November.

Focusrite continues to deliver fresh and exciting tools via the Plug-in Collective, this month offering three powerful soft synths in partnership with AAS (Applied Acoustics Systems).

The Focusrite Plug-in Collective helps registered Focusrite hardware customers in the quest for their signature sound. This time, Focusrite is working with innovative and prestigious plugin company Applied Acoustics Systems to offer Session Bundle (worth $99) for free until December 8th, 2017.

Session Bundle consists of three soft synths for music makers: Lounge Lizard Session 4, Strum Session 2 and Ultra Analog Session 2.

Based on the physical modeling synthesis engine of the award-winning Lounge Lizard EP-4, Lounge Lizard Session 4 is a simple and straightforward instrument reproducing legendary electric pianos. Boasting 16 different piano sounds and a great selection of effects, Lounge Lizard Session 4 delivers outstanding sound quality, action and feel.

With 24 different acoustic and electric guitars, a two-channel amplifier, spring reverb, speaker cabinet and effects, Strum Session 2 packs everything needed to create guitar parts for productions. And with chord recognition, chord voicing, strumming and picking action, and a library of 102 MIDI riffs, playing guitar on a keyboard has never been so easy.

Ultra Analog Session 2 unfolds as a simple and fun synthesizer. At its core lies a hard-sync oscillator and filter duo supplemented by a powerful unison imparting a rich and modern sound. Additionally, key synthesis controls, an arpeggiator and a multi-effect module complete the package for a direct and spontaneous playing experience.

Customers can access the bundle by logging into their Focusrite accounts.
