Focusrite assume worldwide distribution of Forte Suite plug-in

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

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.
