Digidesign, the North American distributor for Focusrite products, and BLUE Microphones have teamed up to develop three bundles that feature Focusrite Platinum Series models and the new Bluebird microphone specifically developed by BLUE for Digidesign.

The VoiceMaster Pro Pak features the VoiceMaster Pro channel strip (shown) mated to the Bluebird microphone and its accessories; the Focusrite 24-bit/96kHz A/D card is also included in this bundle. The VoiceMaster Pro features a Class-A mic pre, instrument level input, a latency-free monitoring section for seamless connectivity to DAWs, an Opto-Expander, an Opto-Compressor, a Tube Sound Circuit, a unique vintage harmonics circuit and more. This bundle will have a special price of $1,299 U.S.

The TwinTrak Pro Pak will also be included with a Bluebird microphone, the BLUE BirdNest pop filter, the BirdCage shockmount and a premium Blueberry cable. The dual-channel TwinTrak Pro features a Class A-mic pre, instrument level input, a stereo, latency-free monitoring section, built in D/A, a stereo/mono Opto-Compressor, a unique “scoop” EQ and the availability of Focusrite’s 24-bit/96kHz A/D card option. The TwinTrak Pro Pak will have a special price of $1,099 U.S.A

The last bundle is the TrakMaster Pak, featuring the TrakMaster Channel Strip, with the aforementioned BLUE components. The TrakMaster features a Class-A mic pre, instrument level input, an Opto-Compressor, a voice/instrument EQ and the availability of Focusrite’s 24-bit/96kHz A/D card option. The TrakMaster Pak will retail for $1,335 U.S. but will sell for $899.

Digidesign’s strategic alliance manager, Dino Virella, stated, “These three bundles are the next step as Digidesign and Focusrite’s relationship with the creative minds at BLUE evolves. When I approached BLUE about making us a versatile, great-sounding and visually unique mic, they responded, and the Bluebird far exceeds anything I ever dreamed of. This really makes the process of buying a premium front-end/microphone combo a snap for our dealers and customers. They have told us that they really appreciate this. These Focusrite bundles are only the start. We intend on developing some very unique and compelling Bluebird and Digidesign product bundles in the near future."

"We are extremely proud of how Bluebird turned out," stated BLUE's president Skipper Wise. "We listened very carefully to Digidesign's input and together with our creative engineering team, have developed a microphone that will be a very nice addition to anyone's recording arsenal."
