Focusrite have announced at AES that they have assumed worldwide distribution of the Forte Suite plug-in. Here’s all the details in their own words:
As of October 1st 2008, Focusrite will assume worldwide distribution of their finest Pro Tools-exclusive EQ and Compression plug-in, formerly distributed worldwide by Digidesign.
The Focusrite Forte Suite is a channel strip plug-in based on the now-legendary Focusrite Forte recording console of the mid 1980s. Utilizing virtual vintage modules, Forte Suite brings Focusrite’s sonic signature to Pro Tools through sophisticated modeling of the ISA 110 EQ and ISA 130 dynamics processors (including compressor, de-esser, and noise gate), the key modules from the acclaimed Focusrite Forte analog console. It also includes surround modes as well as graphical representations of EQ, compression, and related module curves. And its interface components closely resemble the ISA series modules treasured by audiophiles the world over.
Along with offering a host of powerful processing tools including a six-band EQ and a multi-channel compressor, gate, and expander, Forte Suite also features a sidechain input and frequency filters for the dynamics processors.
The Forte Suite can perform both as a channel strip plug-in and as individual ISA 110, ISA 130 dynamics, and ISA 130 compressor plug-ins. In addition, the ISA 130 compressor supports all Pro Tools surround formats.
The Forte Suite will be available to purchase via Focusrite’s network of exclusive distributors from November 2008. A 14-Day trial that gives you all of the functionality of the full retail version will be available to download from Focusrite.com. For pricing details, please contact your local Focusrite distributor.
