Focusrite Sound Collection Avid subscription - various freebies

Recommended Posts

Avid quietly pulled the Pro Tools First product late last year and Focusrite are now offering a 3 month Avid subscription as an alternative.

The seem to give you this even if you've already had the First licence.

I thought I'd take a look, even though I have zero intention of subscribing.   When you link this to your Avid account it dumps 3 month licences into your ilok account.

So far so good - but on my account it activated a "protools inner circle' deal which has a bunch of free plugins and sound content.    It's worth taking a look even if you have zero interest in an Avid subscription/Trial.

NOTE: that when Avid dump the licences (lots of them !) in your iLok account the 3 month countdown begins immediately.  It's not the 3 months from activation that you normally get.  If you were thinking of actually using the 3 month licences you may want to wait until you need it to maximise your 3 months...if that makes sense ?

ALSO:  Avid also do a 1 month free trial with licences that begin after activation - and you can 'stack' these in your iLok account -  so you can effectively get 4 months free if subscriptions appeal ?

Did you get also UJAM – Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE?

In July they included it but I do not know if they still give it for free now

SPARKLE was a Focusrite Sound Collective freebie last July?

No, it was part of Protools Inner Circle (July or August)

But I do not know if they still include it now or if it was only a time-limited freebie

I go here https://customer.focusritegroup.com/en/my-software and I see nothing about AVID or ProTools.

I have a Scarlett first gen.
Are these 3 months free or ...?

I have a second gen Scarlett and a ReMOTE 49 SL COMPACT Novation keyboard. Not sure which is generating the ProTools stuff, but I see both the three subscription and ProTools First in my account.

Does this automatically end? No credit card?

Did not ask for a credit card when I activated my three month sub.

The website I posted is correct, right?

If so, I guess my 1st gen doesn't qualify. Thanks.

Yes. At least for me that link takes me to my account's bundle software, which includes the ProTools stuff as the last two items. I have a 2nd generation.
