Plug-in Collective Venomode

Free plug-ins DEEQ, MAXIMAL 2 + PIVOT, plus 50% discount at the Venomode store

This month we’ve teamed up with Venomode to offer not just one, but three plug-ins for you to try, plus a 50% discount at the Venomode store.

Venomode is a relatively new brand which is outputting high-quality, very easy-to-use plug-ins that are both enjoyable to use and produce a top-quality sound.

From 2May you’ll be able to instantly enhance your tracks with DeeQ (a single-band EQ), Maximal 2 (a maximiser) and Pivot (a tilt EQ). They’re really easy to use, needing just one or two tweaks to a couple of controls to transform your track. At the same time, Venomode are also offering a generous 50% off their other products.

DeeQ is a single-band dynamic EQ filter that automatically adjusts the parameters of the EQ based on the incoming envelope or an external sidechain. It’s great for everything from small adjustments to make room in the mix, to creative ‘wah’ type effects.

Maximal 2 is a loudness maximiser, featuring an advanced lookahead peak limiter and analogue-modelled saturation. It smoothly limits any peaks in the audio, and automatically increases the overall level. The analogue-modelled tape and tube saturation modes borrow all the best parts of the analogue world without the bad bits!

Pivot is a powerful tilt equaliser, allowing you to quickly shift the spectral content of your audio. Mid/Side modes allow you to adjust the stereo content of your audio separately, allowing you to clean up muddy stereo bass, or crisp up the wide treble in your master tracks.

At Focusrite we particularly enjoyed trying DeeQ. If you’re anything like us, more often than not you find yourself needing to low or high cut certain channels without any more advance EQ-ing. DeeQ is great for this. Not only that, it also can react to external envelopes and sidechains meaning it’s a super useful tool for sound design as well. 

The chance to try these plug-ins (worth over £75) is an offer exclusive to Plug-In Collective members. To join all you need to do is register your Focusrite hardware [link to Register page] then follow the link in your account. But don’t leave it too late: the offer is only available until 4July 2019.
