Until August 31, 2009, Focusrite is offering its Forté Suite Pro Tools (RTAS and TDM) ISA channel strip plug-in—worth $599—free of charge with every hardware product from its ISA range, including the new ISA One. 

Using virtual vintage modules, Forté Suite continues where D2/D3 left off, bringing Focusrite’s classic ISA sonic signature to every Pro Tools platform (HD, LE and M-Powered) through sophisticated modeling of the ISA110 EQ and ISA130 dynamics processors (including compressor, de-esser, and noise gate), the key modules from the acclaimed Focusrite Forté analog console.

Included in the hardware range are the ISA428 (4-channel) and ISA828 (8-channel) mic pre's, the ISA430 and ISA220 channel strips, and the recently launched ISA One, a single-channel microphone preamplifier with independent DI. 

Every ISA unit features modules from the previously mentioned Forté Suite console, the foundation of which is the ISA mic pre. Focusrite states that the topology of this mic pre has never changed, except for the addition of a variable impedance circuit. The Focusrite ISA mic pre is renowned for its transparency, while transformer core saturation contributes "subtle warmth." The manufacturer states, "This seeming contradiction of warmth plus beautifully open, unrestricted high frequencies is a classic hallmark of the mid-'80s Focusrite designs.”

Forté Suite authorization code is claimed directly with the local exclusive Focusrite distributor upon proof of purchase of any ISA hardware unit. To download the rebate form, visit
