The Focusrite ISA 110 Equalizer and ISA 130 Dynamics Modules were popular in the 1980s and '90s. They were key components in the original Focusrite Studio Console.
Designed and coded at software house Brainworx, the new bx_console Focusrite VST/AU/AAX plug-in for Mac and PC captures the sound, feel, and styling of Focusrite’s original iconic hardware and is included for free with every Clarett and Red audio interface.
Accurately modelling the full signal paths of the ISA 110 and ISA 130, bx_console Focusrite brings all the analogue character and colouration of the Focusrite Studio Console to your DAW-based productions. It offers four bands of parametric and shelving EQ, high- and low-pass filters, compression/limiting, gating/expansion and de-essing. It improves on the capabilities of the original with modifications including continuously variable THD and Gain controls. With Brainworx’s Tolerance Modelling Technology providing 72 selectable modelled circuits, you can recreate the subtle timbral variations between channels that you’d get with the real console.
The bx_console Focusrite retails separately for $349, but is included for free with all Clarett and Red interfaces. To download the plug-in, simply register your Clarett or Red audio interface online, then log into your Customer Portal page, where you’ll see bx_console Focusrite listed in the My Software page among your registered products.
