With its two inputs and four outputs, Focusrite’s Forte provides a compact, rugged and effective path to and from your computer with the maximum possible audio quality from mic, line and instrument sources. In particular, Forte delivers exceptional dynamic range and noise floor – important in today’s world of an almost unlimited number of tracks making up a mix – and class-leading conversion performance, making sure you always sound your best in your recordings.
The Forte USB 2.0 interface includes two of the latest design of Focusrite's remote-controlled microphone preamplifiers, based on those used in our flagship RedNet range, with a heritage that goes back 30 years. Forte incorporates highest-quality precision 24-bit A-D and D-A converters operating at sample rates up to 192kHz, featuring an advanced design implemented with multi-layer boards alongside careful component choices and layout to ensure maximum performance and minimum noise and distortion. Suitable for almost any digital audio workstation, with the included Red 2 and Red 3 AAX plugins Forte also forms a perfect partner for Pro Tools.
The classic Focusrite Midnight plugin suite is also included with Forte, accurately modelling the classic ISA110 EQ and ISA130 compressor from the original Focusrite console modules created by Rupert Neve for AIR Studios in 1985.
