Focusrite Announces The Hitmaker Expansion for Clarett USB and Clarett OctoPre Customers

The Hitmaker Expansion is a limited-time offer for new Clarett USB and Clarett OctoPre customers that brings the sound of countless hit records to your studio. The offer runs between 1st October 2020 and 31st December 2020, and includes full-version licenses of Antares Auto-Tune® Access, Relab LX480 Essentials, and XLN Addictive Drums 2: Focusrite Special.

What’s included
Antares Auto-Tune Access delivers the most streamlined experience for tuning vocals by combining the essential real-time pitch correction features of Auto-Tune with a simplified interface. Relab LX480 Essentials is a software emulation of one of the best-sounding reverbs ever created, found in studios around the world. XLN Addictive Drums 2: Focusrite Special is a virtual instrument that comprises meticulously recorded drums paired with beats played by amazing drummers, to edit into your music.

The whole package
For the duration of the offer, these premium software titles comes in addition to the already stellar suite of plug-ins and applications that ship with Clarett interfaces: Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC; Red 2 and Red 3 EQ and compressor; XLN Audio Addictive Keys; The Softube Time and Tone bundle; membership to the Focusrite Plug-in Collective, and Ableton Live 10 Lite. Used in tandem with Clarett’s high-headroom microphone preamps (featuring Air mode) and studio-quality converters, The Hitmaker Expansion delivers the industry-standard hardware and software, capable of creating tomorrow’s hit records.

Produce vocals without limits
Vocals and vocal production will make a hit record shine. Getting the powerful punch of pop vocals is an artform in itself, but the Hitmaker Expansion was assembled to equip you with all the tools you need to make vocals stand out. Auto-Tune Access offers the easiest way to start exploring the world of Auto-Tune. Optimised for low-latency processing, it works in real time, and has a light CPU footprint that makes it ideal for working on sessions with high track counts. Powerful Retune Speed and Humanize controls allow for a variety of tuning applications, from subtle and natural-sounding pitch correction to the most extreme Auto-Tune effect. Reverb is a vocalist’s best friend, and Relab RX480 Essentials emulates one of the most-recorded reverb processors ever made. Combine this hit-friendly functionality with Ableton Live 10 Lite and some of the most versatile plug-in processors available — including the Focusrite Red 3 plug-in and Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC — and you’re all set to get your vocals noticed.
