Audient tells us that their creative hub, ARC, has relaunched a year on, offering a new selection of free creative software for all Audient customers - new and existing. They say that they have partnered with some of the industry's leading innovators including Waldorf, Steinberg, Two Notes, Loopmasters, LANDR and Producertech to provide registered customers with software from each of them.
Marketing manager, Andy Allen, told us, ”This year's focus is more on creative tools. We have made sure our customers will have enough creative tools to make some noise and annoy the neighbours. We want to make sure Audient gives continuous added value to customers, by making these fun and creative tools available, simply by registering their product. It doesn't matter if you've got an iD4 or a Heritage console - grab your serial number and click through to ARC."
Here’s the details in audience’s own words…
By registering a product on the website, every Audient user has access to a range of free software which will provide a variety of enhancements to their recording, mixing and mastering experience - even with education - absolutely free of charge.
For those looking for plugins and VSTs, there are three in the Waldorf Edition 2LE set, which includes PPG Wave 2.2V, Attack and D-Pole. If these aren't enough, Audient users also get Two Notes Torpedo Wall of Sound, a world leader in speaker-cab simulation.
As part of the package, Loopmasters has provided over 1GB worth of free samples tailored specially for Audient users, as well as 500 credits to cash in at Loopcloud, allowing users to browse, stream and import loops and sounds from the cloud directly into your DAW.
Also available are Steinberg's Cubase LE and Cubasis LE2 (for iOS), which turn a Mac, PC or iPad into a compact Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), offering audio recording, editing, MIDI sequencing and mixing tools for musicians, producers and songwriters.
In addition, mastering innovators LANDR continue to offer 8 free 16-bit WAVs and 2 free 24-bit WAV mastering credits, plus 10 distribution credits at no cost to Audient users, whilst the two Producertech.com courses selected by Audient will give unique insights into EQing and mastering, as well as an extra £20 to put towards further courses.
