If you have a registered Focusrite product...

...and in case you did not get the email...

Log in to your Focusrite account, and there will be a code to download and install one of the 4 (your choice) Addictive Keys pianos...

(not sure how long these things last)

Hrm... I wonder if it's too late to register my Focusrite VRM Box. Its no longer in production, but I love that piece of hardware.

I've got the other three Addictive Keys pianos, and they're quite nice. I couldn't quite see purchasing the Electric Grand, but for free... smile

Edit: They only offered me a 50% off voucher code for selected D16 plug-ins. frown

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Usually they last for the calendar month when they're featured. But this one has a promising caveat (emphasis by me):

"In addition to the monthly Plug-in Collective offers, we have teamed up with XLN Audio to bring you a time-unlimited offer for an Addictive Keys instrument of your choice. Use the code below to choose from Studio Grand, Modern Upright, Mark One or Electric Grand."

Thanks floyd!

I registered my year old Scarlett 212 and downloaded all the necessary apps to eventually grab the freebie - I selected the upright. I'm new at this and was amazed to note that the download app indicated that the piano download would take 1.2 gigs. Of course I'm ignorant as to the size of the Logic Pro pianos that I currently use for midi super tracks.

Interestingly I found out I'm eligible fot a host of additional free downloads including a gig of loops and many effects. It's all a bit overwhelming given that I'm still learning my Izotope products.

are you talking about the NOVATION email? I almost trashed it because I didn't associate the name with Focusrite...

No, that is a different email - that one is if you have a Novation product registered (sort of the same thing).

The other (original) is if you have a Focusrite interface registered (or unregistered - they want you to register it).

The pianos are nice - and well worth the price (free smile )

I just downloaded the Mark One Fender Rhodes.

Gregg Allman is on his way over and we will be playing it clean boys and girls.

No liquor will be involved.

Thanks for the tip off Floyd. You have no idea what is coming now son.

well... I have several focusrite products, but I didn't get this offer. But the novation email also showed pictures of Focusrite interfaces, and I was wondering if there was a connection, and this was my invitation to the party....

Pat,
Log into Focusrite, the offer will be in your account.
I didn't see the email either. Maybe it went to spam folder .. but logging in it was obvious.

Thanks for the heads up FJ

Direct Link to the collective.... I check it after the first of every month (Outlook Reminder). That's typically when the new plugin comes out. Sometimes it's several days after the 1st.

Has anyone actually tried to run the installer? Bombed on my system and I don't have another 45 minutes right now to start it over like they suggest. Same thing happened to me about 4 or 5 years ago with a Studio Grand demo that I had. 2 strikes against XLN for me.

I installed it without any problem. The installer installs itself and then downloads the piano - which was a 1 Gig download - that took a while and there was a fairly significant "quiet period" between the time the download finished and it finally came back to say it was successful... I got the Studio Grand - on a Windows 7 system. David got the Mark One - don't know what his OS is. J&B got the Upright - they have a Mac...

I wanted the Upright Grand. I have a decent steinway sampled piano in the Garritan Personal Orchestra. I have had two bad experiences with them.

I'm kicking myself more and more. I bought a Focusrite audio interface a few years back and never registered it because I figured I didn't need the plugins that came with it. Can't seem to register at this late stage. And now look what I'm missing out on!

rockstar_not: I downloaded the Studio Grand and it installed fine for me. Sounds pretty good.

FWIW, I grabbed the Mark 1 (pretty pain free).
Nice.

So, I went to run the installer again, as I was instructed to do by the installer itself, and lo and behold, it said there was nothing to do. I picked the Upright, as I have a couple really nice sounding grands. Not sorry at all, sounds wonderful and just imperfect enough to be believable.

Gotta say, BTW, the quality of these monthly freebies is really nice. The free reverb from January is now my go-to, built into my project templates.

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
