Focusrite’s Hitmaker Expansion returns as a bundle worth over $1,300

Scarlett, Clarett+, Clarett USB and Red users now have access to seriously impressive software

Focusrite Hitmaker Expansion

Audio equipment manufacturer Focusrite has announced the return of its “bigger than ever” Hitmaker Expansion bundle, promising a collection of software worth over $1,300.

New and existing owners of 3rd Gen Scarlett, Clarett+, Clarett USB and Red audio interfaces can access professional-grade software to enhance their production workflow. This includes Softube’s Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555, Antares’ Auto-Tune Access, Brainworx’s bx_oberhausen, and XLN Addictive Keys and XLN Addictive Drums 2: Studio Rock Kit.

For mixing and mastering, Focusrite has you covered with Relab LX480 Essentials, Focusrite Red 2 & 3 Plug-in Suites, Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC and bx_masterdesk.

The brand says these tools will enable you to produce sleek-sounding vocals, powerful guitars, luscious keys and huge drums.

Focusrite’s Hitmaker Expansion bundle comes right out of the box with all Scarlett (3rd Gen), Clarett+, Clarett USB and Red interfaces registered after 1 October 2021. Qualifying Focusrite customers should see it in their accounts for free.

This means that you can get your hands on the bundle for as little as £110, starting with the Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen.

In our review of the 3rd Gen Scarlett range, we said: “As the quality of the Scarlett range has now clearly taken a step up – in terms of the preamps, the dynamic range and lower latency – it now appears to sit closer to the more expensive Clarett range with similar specs but using USB…It certainly succeeds where it should. Better quality, improved specs and not much of a shift in price. It’s difficult to see Focusrite losing that ‘best selling interface’ label any time soon.”
