    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 second generation Scarlett 2i4 is Focusrite's most versatile USB-powered audio interface, ideal for anyone needing a cue mix for performing or recording.
    It is compact yet flexible, with two natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, super-low latency*, MIDI i/o, four analogue outputs and the same class-leading sound quality and digital conversion as the rest of the latest Scarlett range.

    Take it anywhere, connect by a single USB cable, plug two microphones or instruments straight in, and easily record studio quality audio against a cue mix. Focusrite is the perfect partner for Pro Tools, and to celebrate this Scarlett 2i4 now comes with an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, as well as Ableton Live Lite. It is also compatible with all other major DAWs, on Mac and PC.

    The Ins and Outs you need
    With Scarlett 2i4 your recordings will sound just how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. The four analogue outputs and MIDI I/O make the Scarlett 2i4 ideal for the modern music producer using outboard synths or performing live. Use the 1/4 inch balanced jack outputs to connect to professional studio monitors, or the four RCA outputs to connect to a home speaker system or DJ mixer. 

    New Generation - Better in every way
    The second generation Scarlett range is packed full of upgrades. New super-low latency* will bring confidence to your performance, letting you record and monitor with software effects in real time. New metal gain controls and a sleeker red metal chassis reassure you of its improved industrial design, built to go anywhere. The Scarlett range also now operates at sample rates all the way up to 192kHz, and the input channels have evolved too. The latest Scarlett mic preamp features a more even gain structure, so you can accurately set your levels, and the instrument input has also been completely redesigned so it can handle seriously hot pick-ups. Finally, Focusrite have provided analogue protection circuitry across both the inputs and the outputs, to guard your interface against unwanted power surges. 

    Ready to record, anywhere
    Compact and portable enough to take anywhere, you won't even need a power supply; Scarlett 2i2 is connected and powered by a single USB cable. It also comes with the software and effects you need to start recording; an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative Pack, Ableton Live Lite, the Softube Time and Tone Bundle, Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite, 2GB of Loopmasters samples and more.
