plugin colective

This month Focusrite have teamed up with Venomode to offer not just one, but three plug-ins for you to try, plus a 50% discount at the Venomode store. Venomode is a relatively new brand which is outputting high-quality, very easy-to-use plug-ins that are both enjoyable to use and produce a top-quality sound.

From 2 May you’ll be able to instantly enhance your tracks with DeeQ (a single-band EQ), Maximal 2 (a maximiser) and Pivot (a tilt EQ). They’re really easy to use, needing just one or two tweaks to a couple of controls to transform your track. At the same time, Venomode are also offering a generous 50% off their other products. But don’t leave it too late: the offer is only available until 4 July 2019.

DeeQ is a single-band dynamic EQ filter that automatically adjusts the parameters of the EQ based on the incoming envelope or an external sidechain. It’s great for everything from small adjustments to make room in the mix, to creative ‘wah’ type effects.

Maximal 2 is a loudness maximiser, featuring an advanced lookahead peak limiter and analogue-modelled saturation. It smoothly limits any peaks in the audio, and automatically increases the overall level. The analogue-modelled tape and tube saturation modes borrow all the best parts of the analogue world without the bad bits!

Pivot is a powerful tilt equaliser, allowing you to quickly shift the spectral content of your audio. Mid/Side modes allow you to adjust the stereo content of your audio separately, allowing you to clean up muddy stereo bass, or crisp up the wide treble in your master tracks.



Focusrite are renowned for their high quality, studio grade audio interfaces. From the affordable Scarlett range offering 192 kHz from a USB bus powered box to the the Clarett range offering USB C and Thunderbolt connectivity. All interfaces are bundled with a huge range of software and tools to get you recording straight out of the box.



Focusrite Scarlett Interfaces

These compact interfaces range from a single input to 8 with high grade mic pre-amps and up to 192 kHz sample rate, bundled with Pro Tools First, Ableton Live Lite and loads of plugins.

Focusrite Clarett Pre USB Interfaces

A range of high quality interfaces with 2, 4 or 8 inputs and USB-2/3 and USB-C connectivity, low latency, wide dynamic range and ultra-low noise.


Focusrite Clarett Thunderbolt Interfaces

Decades of analogue circuit design experience, applied around 24-bit/192kHz A-D and D-A conversion, delivers a superior signal path. In addition, the Air-enabled mic preamps can reproduce the input impedance, clarity and frequency response curve of their original ISA mic preamp. Included software is from XLN Audio, Focusrite, Softube, Ableton® and Loopmasters.
