  1. Samplitude unbundled libraries are on sale in today's "window" of the advent calendar https://www.producerplanet.com/us/list/advent-calender-2020-1734/ (I think it closes at midnight CET, Germany time) These libraries are on producerplanet.com, but in the section that is not in the Musicmaker store, therefore the current humblebundle coupons won't work.
  2. Available also at pluginboutique but it's full price and they aren't accepting the manufacturer's coupon (unfortunately for me, since I still have December freebies to claim...)
  3. Yes, when you first set up the link (in step a), however, when you run the waves installer afterwards (e.g., to update or add more plugins), it will get automatically redirected to the linked location
  4. Some plugins (waves, etc) don't let you choose a target path. One option that I have found useful is, choosing one location as "the good one" and then replacing all the other folders with directory links to this "good one". E.g., if I decide to use c:\Program Files\Common\VST2 as the "good location" I would a) Check c:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins, and move anything in there to c:\Program Files\Common\VST2 b) Delete the empty c:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins c) Open a command prompt and run: cd c:\Program Files\Steinberg mklink /d Vstplugins "c:\Program Files\Common\VST2" d) repeat the above procedure for all other alternate vst plugin folder locations After replacing folders with links, for anything that allows specifying VST location (DAW, plugin installers) use the "good" location (because some plugins do check and give you an error if they are scanned at a linked location, e.g., XLN) . Remove all other paths (e.g., in your DAW you don't want to have it scan all linked locations, because that will just multiply the time it takes to scan plugins and not add anything useful)
  5. I haven't contacted their tech support but I have had to contact Steinberg Sales support and they did solve the problem I had, reasonably well (after purchasing a HALion crossgrade when it was on sale, the crossgrade verification took too long and I ended up being charged full price. The support rep asked me to pay full and he would then issue a partial refund to bring it back to sale price. Paying full and waiting was a little unnerving but the refund did come through a couple of days later and it all ended well)
  6. misprice? limited quantity? I clicked on the link and it's showing up now as $313.99 at for me ☹️ It is $279 at magix, https://www.vegascreativesoftware.com/us/vegas-pro/product-comparison/, it says it's valid until Dec 15 but it's magix so it may get extended...
  7. Correct. The instrument is the same but libraries come with their own license checks. You can have the 70 GB library licensed for Samplitude and the 12GB licensed for everything. Then, if you open Independence e.g., in StudioOne, all the instruments will show up in the instrument selection pane, but you will get a licensing error if you try to load an instrument from the 70GB library. You will only be able to actually use instruments from the 12GB library Yes, it is rather annoying and probably the main reason why I end up looking first in Falcon and Sampletank when looking for "typical" sampled sounds.
  8. If your downloads were taking a very long time (or simply not starting) it looks like an update was pushed out today that solves the issue. To install, just (re)start the Software Center and let it upgrade itself
  9. Other drum replacers: SSD Trigger (Steven Slate), SPL DrumXchanger (pluginalliance), Drumagog, Massey DRT
  10. Gone now. The new "advent calendar window" is for two 90's RnB loop collections for $2.49 (non-commercial) or 4.98 (commercial use) each, or the bundle for $4.49 (non-commercial use) or $8.98 (commercial use) https://www.producerplanet.com/us/list/advent-calender-2020-1615/ Considering the current humblebundle sale including magix vouchers, you can get the RnB bundle with commercial use license for $1
  11. In this month's issue, the "CM 10 years back" column may evoke some nostalgic feelings for people here...
  12. You can subscribe at www.plugins-samples.com For new issues it's more cost effective buying single issues and occasionally skipping those you're not interested in, but subscriptions get you access to 90+ back issues and freebies
  13. Actually, I have the impression that Waves & Plugin Alliance are conditioning us to think $29 is a reasonable price,and a good sale should be below that...
  14. Given the current producerplanet.com sales, even for those of us who got the bundle back in August, the $1 tier for a $19.99 and a $9.99 voucher is a pretty good deal
  15. 35% OFF NEW PRICE | PROMO CODE: SAVE35 I'm not sure if it applies everywhere but it should work for this one https://www.beladmedia.com/deuce-edition-bundles/ Expired ☹️ Thank you cclarry
  16. I have virtual instruments for: the ppg 360 wavecomputer http://www.earcandy.dk/specials/ppg360wavecomputer/index.html and ppg wave 2.x https://www.waldorfmusic.com/en/archive/ppg-wave-2v and now the ppg wave 3 https://audioplugin.deals/ppg-wave-3-v-by-waldorf/ What next? A PPG instrument from plugin alliance? Oh, wait... https://www.gearnews.com/wolfgang-palm-retires-hands-ppg-to-brainworx-and-plugin-alliance/
  17. It looks like it just includes a couple of bonus amps and stomps on top of the free (CS) AT https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irig2/index.php?p=apps
  18. And Beatmaker Void is $19 too, this time at audiodeluxe https://www.audiodeluxe.com/products/studio-tools/ujam-void This completes all the "new" beatmakers (those that weren't available in v1)
  19. Beatmaker Vice is also $19, at pluginboutique https://www.pluginboutique.com/product/1-Instruments/64-Virtual-Instrument/6321-VICE
  20. My list is long so I have categorized it 1) The "I prepared this wants list before BF" XLN XO (audiodeluxe had the best deal after considering bucks) Spectralayers upg to 7 (from Steinberg) Soundforge 13 (I was waiting to see what Magix would offer, in the end their deals weren't interesting enough so I got the "cclarry special") Audiority Echoes T7E (from pluginboutique) 2) The "I would have bought them anyway sooner or later" AAS Chromaphone 3 (from dontcrack) Virtual Bassist upgrade to v2 (from JRRShop, I thought it was a 3-to-3 upgrade and I got the very pleasant surprise that it was 3-to-4) Orb Producer Suite DDMF LP10 (from JRRShop, nice to see them there, DDMF has some really useful plugins) Harrison AVA bundle 3) The "maybe I should stop subscribing to deals emails and reading this forum" Samples From Mars complete bundle Virharmonic Choral bundle OpZilla Sampletekk pianos, organs & flutes (various purchases, from APD & Sampletekk directly) Gain Match Ina GRM Creative bundle 4) The "Freebies, which I would have missed if not for this forum and the deals emails" CLA Echosphere Surrealistic MG-1 Quadravox Animate NOS Audio Roomer Slate Fresh Air Shortnoise 1 RA Granulat Audiothing SR-88 Sonixinema Medicine man One Man Tribe HandPan Entertaining mp3 song from ZincT 5) The "they were on my list but I already spent too much, I'll leave them for some other time" Magix upgrades (Acid, Vegas, Samplitude) Arturia V Collection upg and FX Collection crossgrade Cherry Year One collection Reason upgrade Presonus Upgrade Realivox
  21. Is it possible to get these freebies without losing the GROUP discounts? it looks like these codes are not "stackable" Never mind, there are quite a few good deals where GROUP/FORUM coupons cannot be used but are eligible for freebies: DDMF Deals, INA GRM Deals, Slate Deals, UJAM Deals BTW, the minimum purchases for the upper tier freebies coupons have changed. Here is the latest: Sample Set $50 Roomer $100 Coupon codes haven't changed
  22. The independence content looks like a decent deal (esp. if you have a producerplanet voucher), e.g. https://www.producerplanet.com/us/article/independence-pro-plus-suite-3120/ (if you already have samplitude, it includes Independence but the sounds are host-locked. Purchasing the version at producerplanet will unlock the purchased set of sounds for use in any vst host)
