Latest Plug-in Collective offer opens up to all Novation customers

Throughout July and August, get Black Rooster Audio’s magnificent Magnetite tape deck emulation plug-in, plus a huge discount on the same developer’s mighty Compressor Bundle.

Just as Sound Collective does for Novation customers, Plug-In Collective provides Focusrite audio interface owners with inspirational free plugins every two months, recent examples including Positive Grid BIAS FX 2 LE, Mastering The Mix Bassroom, Nugen Audio MonoFilter and UJAM Virtual Guitarist Iron. Plug-in Collective’s latest give-away, running throughout July and August, is Black Rooster Audio’s magnificent Magnetite tape deck emulation plug-in, plus a huge discount on the same developer’s mighty Compressor Bundle – and now the very same offer is being made available to all Sound Collective members, too.

Infusing your digital productions with the sonic texture and energy of analogue tape, Magnetite is a go-to plug-in for beefing up drums and basses, boosting vocal presence, and bringing cohesion and colouration to the master bus. Select one of three Tape Types and crank up the Record Level knob to imbue your source material with fabulous electro-magnetic saturation, from subtle warming to overt distortion. Adjust the frequency response with the Tape Speed and Bias controls, and dial in the mechanical wow and flutter, hiss and 60Hz hum of a real tape deck.

Whether you’re working with live drums, guitars and vocals, or making dance and electronic music entirely ’in the box’, Magnetite is an effortless and instant solution for adding palpable analogue vibe, weight and character to individual tracks and group busses. And needless to say, it’s of particularly direct relevance to producers of lo-fi, synthwave and other retro styles, where its evocative fluctuations and noise make it a powerful creative tool.

“This month, we’ve teamed up with Black Rooster Audio to offer their amazing sounding tape emulation, Magnetite,” says Plug-in Collective Product Manager, Jonathan Campbell. “What I most enjoy about using this plug-in is the variation in tape types available, and the wide range of effects you can achieve with them. Used on a drum buss, it adds a really nice saturation and gluing effect, and just by driving the input, you can add a load of crunch and fatness. Magnetite can be used on most sounds to get a more tape feel, and it’s super easy to get quick results with!”

Magnetite costs $89 in the Black Rooster online store, but Sound Collective members can download it for free between 9th July and 3rd September from their Novation account, where they’ll also find a discount code with which to buy Black Rooster’s Compressor Bundle for just $249. Normally retailing for $684, this stellar compressor plug-in six pack comprises analogue-modelled emulations of five vintage classics, and an all-new zero-latency design created in collaboration with multi-platinum mix engineer Koen Heldens.
