        A channel strip plug-in that utilizes virtual vintage module.

        The Focusrite ForteSuite is a channel strip plug-in for Pro Tools and is based on the now-legendary Focusrite Forte recording console of the mid-'80s that carried the hefty price tag of $1.5 million.

        Utilizing virtual vintage modules, ForteSuite software brings Focusrite's sonic signature to Pro Tools through sophisticated modeling of the ISA 110 EQ and ISA 130 dynamics processors (including compressor, de-esser, and noise gate), the key modules from the acclaimed Focusrite Forteanalog console. It also includes surround modes as well as graphical representations of EQ, compression, and related module curves. And its interface components closely resemble the ISA series modules treasured by audiophiles the world over.

        Along with offering a host of powerful processing tools including a six-band EQ and a multi-channel compressor, gate, and expander, ForteSuite plug-in also features a sidechain input and frequency filters for the dynamics processors.

        The Focusrite ForteSuite can perform both as a channel strip plug-in and as individual ISA 110, ISA 130 dynamics, and ISA 130 compressor plug-ins. In addition, the ISA 130 compressor supports all Pro Tools surround formats.

                Forte plugs are a great find.

                Comments about Focusrite Forte Suité TDM and RTAS Plug-In:

                I, too, paid a low price for this package. At the price it is a STEAL. The graphics seem a little bit cheesey compared to the eye candy that is on the market these days, but this is a tremendously useful Dynamics/EQ package. I have only a vague sonic memory of the original hardware devices so I can't rate the quality of the modeling but I'm very pleased with the friendly, neutral sonic character of the software plugins. I have some other highly regarded plugins in my system but the Forte units have consistantly given me the nicest results, with the least fidgeting. If this package will work in your world, don't be foolish; BUY IT.
                The feature set is what one would expect of a Dynamics and EQ processor. There are no omissions but no unexpected bonuses either.
                The sonics are fine. I find both the compression and EQ to be very effective but gentle, subtle, not rude and pushy like some processing.
                At the closeout price, the value is off-the-chart ASTOUNDING!!

                Its an eq

                Comments about Focusrite Forte Suité TDM and RTAS Plug-In:

                I bought this because it was a low price. I have to say its a great plugin. I mainly use it as an eq for things that just need a slight bit of tweaking, but it adds its own sonic flavor. As for the compressor its a basic compressor, when I need a specific sound I go to other comps in my arsenal but if you just need to compress to curb the eq a bit then its great. Overall the eq alone is worth the price That being said I have never used the actual hardware but I am familiar with alot of other consoles (API, SSL, NEVE, ECT) and for a plugin its a good addition to any collection
