Focusrite Customers Receive Extension on Sound Collective’s FrozenPlain Offer

Just as Plug-in Collective does for Focusrite customers, Sound Collective provides Novation MIDI controller and synth owners with inspirational free plugins every two months, recent examples including a panoply of inspirational instruments and effects from the likes of iZotope, KV331 Audio, Serato and Roli. Running through June and July, Sound Collective’s latest giveaway is FrozenPlain’s super intuitive MIDI harmonizing and key/scale snapping plug-in, Obelisk – and now they’re opening that offer up to all Plug-in Collective members as well.

From 18th June to 6th August 2020, members of Focusrite’s Plug-in Collective community can take their MIDI compositions to the next level by downloading FrozenPlain’s Obelisk auto-chord plug-in for free, and claiming a 30% discount on the pad/drone-specializing Wraith synth.

Obelisk is a powerful VST/AU plug-in that turns monophonic MIDI sequences into key/scale-constrained chord progressions, based on your specifications. Select the harmonic intervals you want to have automatically stacked above and/or below the incoming notes from an extensive menu or load one of a variety of preset chords, then set a key and scale from a similarly comprehensive roster to constrain the chords to that tonal base. Your own custom chord shapes and scales can be saved and recalled, and for compositional flexibility, you can house up to four different setups in a single instance of Obelisk, enabling on-the-fly keyswitching between chords and scales as your track progresses.

An incredibly useful MIDI tool, Obelisk will not only prove invaluable in bringing depth and musicality to your tracks, but is sure to improve your understanding of harmony in the process.

Wraith, meanwhile, is a flexible synthesizer built for darkly cinematic sound design, with three independent layers each drawing on a library of 230 samples and featuring its own filtering, modulation, EQ and looping controls.

Plug-in Collective members can download Obelisk for free from their Focusrite account, and claim their 30% discount on Wraith, between 18th June and 6th August 2020.
