  1. Thing’s are about to get very interesting, now with Sonnox, Sequential, Oberheim, Novation…etc all in cahoots now with this latest acquisition by Focusrite kid’s thanx folks

    1. What are you talking about?Focusrites interfaces have come with lots of great useable free software included for years.

        1. OK but that is probably because you already had plenty of good plugins? I found several good ones in the ones included with my FC interface.

  2. I’m willing to trust Focusrite’s actions because they’ve always treated me well as a customer and of course, their gear is solid. An added positive: the companies they’ve been taking under their umbrella are among the especially good ones like Sequential. You should always be as cautious and practical as possible, but it feels like the adults are running the shop in this case.
