Citation : THE GREEN RANGE :
Until 1996, when Focusrite launched the Green Range, their customers were typically commercial music recording studios, post-production studios, broadcast facilities and high-end project studios. The more affordable Green Range addressed serious recording musicians and project studio owners.
The Green Range included mic/line preamplifiers, EQ's and dynamics processing in a number of different configurations, for a total of six products. The designs incorporated Class A circuitry, Focusrite sonic and build characteristics, and were competitively priced. The unique look and feel of the units themselves was quite different from previous Focusrite designs and provoked both positive and negative reactions, younger buyers particularly liking the controversial front panel design.
The Green 3 – VoiceBox was an outstanding success for three years, setting off an ongoing demand for Voice Channel Processors.
While the Green Range products enjoyed an excellent reputation for their sound characteristics (the Green 1 Dual Mic-Pre won a TEC award in 1997), they were still above the critical price point for their intended market. As a result, the product range was eventually replaced by the even more affordable Platinum Range. By addressing the project studio market, Focusrite was definitely on the right track.
