This Month's Plug-in Collective Offer: Eventide
Free EQuivocate plug-in and 50% discount off Eventide’s Elevate Mastering Bundle from 5 July to 6 September
Perfect for mixing and mastering, EQuivocate's auditory filters and match EQ functionality make it incredibly powerful, simple to use, and natural sounding. EQuivocate uses filters which are modelled on the human ear. Each of the 26 critical bands tickles a different part of your inner ear, making any combination of settings sound as natural as possible. Combining this with a linear-phase filter shape that reduces pre-echo makes EQuivocate an EQ with a difference you can hear.
Elevate Mastering includes Elevate, EQuivocate, the Punctuate adaptive transient enhancer and the Saturate spectral clipper. The unique Elevate multi-band limiter, human-ear EQ and powerful audio maximiser will increase the loudness of your mix while maintaining or improving its dynamic perception. It uses intelligent, adaptive technology that responds in real time to your music; creating not only the loudest, but the best sounding master.

April 2017 Offer: Exponential Audio
Free R2 stereo reverb plug-in (iLok 2 or iLok 3 required)
Worth $239, R2 is one of Exponential Audio's first and most popular plug-ins. It's been an essential part of countless music mixes as well as films and broadcasts. The plug-in is known as a character reverb that adds a tasty finish to any source material, and is capable of adding warmth and fatness to mixes that might otherwise be sterile. For soloists, it has a savoury and deep tail that adds a high-production gloss to anything.
R2 makes a real difference, showing just how far the art of reverb has advanced, but Focusrite hardware customers can take that even further. When you redeem your R2 license, you'll become eligible for two special discounts:
40% off R2 Surround
R2 Surround is an expanded version of R2, featuring additional control over early reflections and a native channel count of up to 7.1. Exponential Audio's novel 3D Link technology allows you to expand this to as many as 16 channels. R2 Surround has been hard at work in cinema for several years now. If you've been to the movies, you've heard it.
50% off R4
R4 is Exponential Audio's newest reverb, and combines the classic sound of hardware reverberation with an all-modern approach.
Exponential Audio plug-ins are used on Grammy-winning albums and top movies that take you to galaxies far, far away or deep into Middle-earth.
In order to qualify for these upgrades, Focusrite customers must redeem their R2 licenses by May 1. Unused license codes will become invalid at that time. After activating R2 Stereo Reverb, a purchase portal will be transmitted to these customers. This message will be transmitted to the email address listed with your iLok account. Please make sure the address firstname.lastname@example.org is whitelisted by your email service. Exponential Audio cannot assume responsibility for messages that are bounced or refused. Discount offers will be valid until 1 July 2017 and cannot be combined with any other offer.
