Give your set-up a bi-monthly boost for nowt but a few clicks...

We've already expressed our gratitude to the generosity of the team at Focusrite and their superb Plug-in Collective offerings...<3 Now we're turning our attention Novation's Sound Collective, where every two months, those who've purchased Novation gear (and registered it, of course) are graced with exclusive software to give their creative arsenal a much-needed boost.

Sound Collective: The Good, The Better, and The Great...

There's no bad or ugly here, only good vibes and positive energy. Novation's Sound Collective offers a means of testing the waters (so to speak) with audio software you might have otherwise had your eye on or may not even have considered trying.

Novation appreciates that the joy of making music is a journey that peaks and troughs much like those signal waveforms we all know and love. Making the journey that little bit smoother or more interesting if you'd prefer, becoming a member of Sound Collective entitles you to free versions of innovative software instruments and creative FX from leading developers from around the world.

What's on offer at the moment then?

From October 8 to December 10 2020, members of Novation’s Sound Collective community can download Audio Damage’s hugely acclaimed Dubstation 2 delay plug-in (worth $49) for free, and get a 35% discount on any instrument or effect plug-in in the Audio Damage store.

Modelling a vintage bucket brigade delay unit, Dubstation 2 centres on two independent delay lines, each with its own time setting and an optional ping-pong mode for complex, cross-fed stereo echoes. An LFO modulates the delay time, extending the plug-in’s remit into chorusing and classic analogue-style pitch modulation, and Reverse and Loop functions let you flip and perpetually cycle the delay buffer, respectively. The characteristic warm distortion for which BBD devices are known and loved is brought to bear by the Input Drive and Saturation knobs; and high- and low-cut filters are also onboard for broad-strokes frequency-shaping and live manipulation of the feedback circuit.

A bona fide modern classic, Dubstation 2 is a powerhouse dual delay for production, sound design and live performance, with a rich, old-school sound and endless creative potential.

During the same period, Sound Collective members can also take advantage of a 35% discount on any plug-in instrument or effect in the Audio Damage store, including the Continua and Quanta synths, Enso looper, Discord 4 pitchshifter, QuatroMod modulation effect and many more.
