While we are still weeks away from Black Friday, which will take place on 25 November 2022, there are still a bunch of deals launching from some of the greatest names in plugins including iZotope, Native Instments, Plugin Boutique and Waves.
If you’re looking to juice up your DAW with additional plugins, synths, distrortion, sample packs and more, then the best Black Friday plugin deals might be worth loading up your credit card for. Since we’re talking about software, you can expect some of the best plugin deals to shave up to 80% off – or even more!
It’s important to consider a spending budget before you go crazy. There will be a lot of audio plugins at discounted rates – but there’s always other opportunities. Sometimes it might be best to make a list of all the plugins you want, and rank them according to importance.
Pro-tip: download the demo, if possible, and see if they are fit for your purpose.
While Black Friday officially takes place on 25 November, many online shops will start sales much earlier – some of them even in October. So now is the right time to start looking!
Izotope Black Friday
The Izotope Black Friday sale is extremely popular with producers, as they are known to discount their plugins and bundles quite heavily. In some instances, you can expect up to 90% off. Previously they have also given out free audio plugins at no cost!
Arturia V Collection 9 Black Friday
As a premium suite of professional software instruments ranging from modern hybrid synth engines to emulations of the most evocative instruments ever made, many enthusiasts are awaiting the Arturia V Collection 9 Black Friday sale as it’s the best opportunity to get this expensive product for a discount.
Ableton Black Friday
If you’re on the lookout for Ableton software, it’s likely the Ableton Live Black Friday sale will be a huge discount, and it’s expected some of their other popular products will be on sale too. Previously, they have also offered some fantastic bundles that we’re looking forward to.
FL Studio Black Friday
If you’re looking to purchase a new DAW, the FL Studio Black Friday sale might be a chance to purchase FL Studio for around $100 less – plus they usually throw in a few hundred dollars worth of plugins and samples. While it might not be the most popular DAW with electronic producers, it’s definitely become more capable in recent years.
Soundtoys Black Friday
Soundtoys make some of the best audio plugins on the market. I’m personally a fan of Decapitator and Echoboy. The Soundtoys Black Friday sale heavily discounts these – plus all their other best sellers – for a decent amount of a few hundred dollars.
