From 12th March to 7th May, members of Focusrite’s Plug-in Collective community can download Mastering The Mix’s powerful IGNITE effect and an exclusive six-month trial version of the BASSROOM mastering EQ for free.

IGNITE is a dynamic harmonic distortion effect that brings level- and frequency-responsive grit, textural character and stereo enhancement to any instrumental or vocal source. Target specific frequencies for distortion, adjust the input signal threshold level above which it’s applied, shape the two-stage response envelope, and set iGNITE to work on the left/right, mid or side signals. It’s everything you need to make any sound seem louder and more present in the mix.

BASSROOM’s brilliant 3D interface and genre-specific EQ target suggestions – based on real-time analysis of your mixes – make productive manipulation of low frequencies almost effortless. Through the flawlessly transparent processing of five carefully calibrated frequency bands, it lets you achieve the perfect blend of punchy low-mids and defined lows that’s key to a natural sounding master.

Key features:

  • Dial in anything from subtle saturation to full-on decimation
  • Target a specific frequency range with high-quality all-pass filters
  • Apply saturation dynamically with threshold and envelope controls
  • Stereo and mid/side processing options
  • Rich visual feedback aids in setting filters and threshold


  • Immersive resizable 3D interface
  • Unique filter design delivers unrivalled transparency
  • Genre-specific EQ targets get great results in seconds
  • Import reference tracks to make your own EQ targets
  • Level match pointer on output gain control
