The Focusrite ForteSuite is a channel strip plug-in for Pro Tools and is based on the now-legendary Focusrite Forte recording console of the mid-'80s that carried the hefty price tag of $1.5 million.
Utilizing virtual vintage modules, ForteSuite software 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 Forteanalog 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, ForteSuite plug-in also features a sidechain input and frequency filters for the dynamics processors.
The Focusrite ForteSuite 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.
