Focusrite Forte Suite – No Longer Available

Focusrite Forte console plugin

Product Description

The Focusrite Forté Suite is a channel strip RTAS and HD-compatible plug-in for Pro Tools based on the now-legendary Focusrite Forté recording console of the mid-'80s (original price for Forté console: $1.5 million).  Utilizing virtual vintage modules, Forté Suite 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 Forté analog 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, Forté Suite also features a sidechain input and frequency filters for the dynamics processors.

The Forté Suite 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.

Features:

  • ISA 110 equalizer
  • ISA 130 multichannel surround compressor
  • ISA 130 expander
  • ISA 130 gate
  • ISA 130 de-esser
  • Side chain input for the compressor and gate

  • Classic-style, vintage GUI with additional graphical representations of the EQ, compressor, and gate

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
