The Focusrite Red range was released in 1994 and included the Red 3 Compressor,which has become famous for being able to retain a natural sound, even when significant compression is being applied.
As such, it has remained the choice of many of the world’s finest mix engineers, such as Chris Lord-Alge, who continues to religiously place his Red 3 over the mix-bus. It remains among Focusrite’s most successful and recognizable hardware products. Encased in half-inch thick red anodized aluminum body, with polished steel top and bottom covers that feature the classic ‘ff’ detailing, the original Red units are unmistakable.
To allow everyone to embrace this audio classic Focusrite released the Red 2 & 3 Plug-in Suite. The Red 2 & Red 3 Plug-in Suite accurately models Focusrite’s classic Red range equalizer and compressor hardware – letting you exploit the originals’ famous sound, conveniently from within your audio software.
