    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.

     

    The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is the best selling USB audio interface with a 2 input, 2 output configuration. The Scarlett 2i2 is ideal for producers who require great sound reproduction and build quality at an excellent price. The interface is easy to transport, set up and use, which in turn maximises time for your creativity. The Scarlett 2i2 is armed with two natural sounding mic preamps with lots of even gain and +48V phantom power. You have the capability of switching each of these to line input, which have been designed for hot pickups to aide the recording of instruments such as electric guitars. Their utility extends further thanks to the XLR/6.3mm combo inputs.

    While the Scarlett 2i2 is the ‘baby’ in the Scarlett range, the preamps are exactly the same as you find in the bigger, expensive Scarlett interfaces. These converters are class-leading at a rate of up to 192 kHz/24-bit. Headphones can be connected to the Scarlett 2i2’s dedicated headphone output, which has dedicated gain control on the front of the interface. Whether you’re a singer songwriter, vlogger or producer, the 2i2 is a great addition to your studio arsenal. The Scarlett 2i2 is USB powered, so no need for any other power supples. When connecting microphones and instruments to the interface, Focusrite have assisted further with finding the perfect level thanks to their signature gain halos around the control knobs.

    Why is this Scarlett 2i2 better than the previous generation?

    Now in its 2nd Generation, the Scarlett 2i2 makes your recordings sound exactly how you want them. It’s packed full of upgrades including brand new, super low latency* resulting in fluid recording and monitoring in real time. The entire 2nd Generation Scarlett range now operates at up to 192kHz and mic preamps have an improved gain structure. This means you can set your levels accurately, whether mic or line input. The Scarlett 2i2 has analogue protection circuitry on both inputs and outputs to combat against unwanted power surging.

    What software do I get with the Scarlett 2i2?

    Thanks to being bus powered (via USB) with small and rugged form, the Scarlett 2i2 is the ultimate ‘record anywhere’ interface. You don’t even need additional software for your laptop thanks to whats in the box when you buy this awesome little Focusrite soundcard:
