Softube offers free plug-in package to Focusrite customers

Swedish software developer Softube has announced that it has teamed up with global music and audio products group Focusrite to offer Scarlett, Saffire, and Clarett audio interface owners an exclusive free Time and Tone Bundle from 8 October.

Softube’s Time and Tone Bundle is valued at $198.00 USD and comprises three of its reverb, delay, and distortion plug-ins.

TSAR-1R Reverb is a reverb plug-in allowing users to add space, depth, and width to sound with a single slider, from ‘realistic and three-dimensional rooms to dramatic and dreamlike halls’.

Tube Delay is an echo effect that can go from clean to distorted by overdriving its three modelled tube stages, promising anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly-style slapbacks to dub reggae echoes.

Saturation Knob is a modelled distortion output unit plug-in that adds grit and warmth, used to ‘fatten up basslines, add some harmonics and shimmer to vocals, or destroy drum loops’. Users can turn up the knob to add saturation, and use the three-position switch to alter the distortion character.

These three plug-ins add to Focusrite’s Red 2 and Red 3 Plug-in Suite already included with its Scarlett, Saffire, and Clarett audio interfaces. From 8 October 2015, for all purchases that were made on or after 1 September 2015, all registered Focusrite Scarlett, Saffire, and Clarett customers can claim Softube’s Time and Tone Bundle for free from their download area.
