Focusrite was put on the map by none other than Rupert Neve and Guy Massey in the mid 1980's with the creation of the ISA 110 preamp which eventually turned into the Forte console.
Only 10 of these consoles were ever made, making the Forte console one of the rarest in the world. In 2014, Focusrite went on a mission to find each of the 10 consoles. To hear the stories and see just how far some of these consoles have come is pretty incredible. They turned it into a 38-minute long video that is a must see:
Ever since I saw this film and heard the history of these consoles, I've been dreaming of owning one. Recently, Brainworx announced that they have been working very closely with Focusrite and Billy Perez, an owner of two of these treasured consoles. Brainworx is famous for their TMT technology that models up to 72 different channels on various analog consoles. The very slight differences in phase from channel to channel create an incredibly wide and clear mix compared to modelling a single channel like so many other plugin companies.
The result of this collaboration is the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC.For all owners of Clarett and RED interface, your Focusrite account has been loaded with this console plugin absolutely FREE!
