Focusrite has announced that the Bx_console Focusrite SC plugin by Brainworx is now free for Clarett, Red, RedNet and ISA customers.

Designed and coded by the DSP geniuses at acclaimed software house Brainworx, the new bx_console Focusrite SC VST/AU/AAX plug-in for Mac and PC faithfully captures the sound, feel and styling of Focusrite’s original iconic hardware – and now Clarett and Red audio interface customers, along with ISA and RedNet customers, get the plug-in, simply by registering their equipment online.

Accurately modeling the full signal paths of the ISA 110 and ISA 130, bx_console Focusrite SC brings all the analogue character and coloration of the Focusrite Studio Console to your DAW-based productions. Offering four bands of parametric and shelving EQ, high- and low-pass filters, compression/limiting, gating/expansion and de-essing, it’s as powerful a sound-shaping tool today as it ever was – indeed, it improves on the capabilities of the original with modifications including continuously variable THD and Gain controls. And with Brainworx’s Tolerance Modelling Technology providing 72 selectable modeled circuits, you can even recreate the subtle timbral variations between channels that you’d get with the real console.

Retailing at $349 USD, bx_console Focusrite SC is now available for free by registering your Clarett, Red, RedNet or ISA unit online. Log into your Customer Portal page, where you’ll see bx_console Focusrite SC listed in the ‘My Software’ page among your registered products.
