  1. The monthly vouchers expire November 23, waiting is not that good of an idea...
  2. I already have 137 plugins in my PA account 😳 and got the code for $299. The Forever 29 coupon didn't work (expected, but why not give it a try?...) The $75 voucher did work, so it is everything for $224 This is the only non-subscription option that includes the mega-sampler 🤔 Something to note is that the promotion is different from the "old everything bundle" in that it includes everything as of right now. There is no ambiguity on what exactly you're getting.
  3. https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/music-maker-fx-plugins-and-sounds-bundle A mix of plugins and loop/fx libraries Tier 1: 4 Products $7.99 Tier 2: 9 Products $15.99 Tier 3: 17 Products $19.99 Plugins are: Puncher 2 (Tier 1) Fundamental Bass (Tier 2) Vocal Limiter & Imprint (Tier 3)
  4. I read the rtf, answered the questions online and didn't get anything. I then noticed that the rtf had been updated asking that the questions be answered by email, so I sent an email as well and that worked ok. The sender for the email with the license key was Andy Jones <andy.jones@futurenet.com> - you may need to adjust your email filters before sending the answers, and check your spam folders if it's not in your inbox after a reasonable amount of time
  5. Thank you, I haven't looked into upgrade prices in a long time and I didn't remember what they were, and it wasn't entirely clear from clicking on the link. Anyway, for reference, I just checked the ones on sale at audiodeluxe and the base price is the same as JRR, but they do allow the coupon at checkout time, plus the extra bucks and the freebie
  6. Right, for me that is one of the reasons I like Synthmaster, V Collection and AAS synths. After paying the "entry price" (I want the presets to be fully tweakable), they open up a very nice collection of "new synths" for a pretty reasonable price Sometimes, instead of finding a new synth and then preset packs, I do it in reverse - find sound designers I like (e.g., Nori Ubukata) and preset packs that sound great, then get the synth where they run.
  7. Even less at Audiodeluxe, e.g., the upgrade to S1Pro from earlier versions is $126.98 with coupon HOLIDAY22 (and you get an additional $6.34 deluxe bucks and the MTransient frebie) JRR indicates that coupons don't apply to Presonus products, I wonder if this is an error on Audiodeluxe's part and later today they'll cancel the option of using a coupon...
  8. Earmaster Pro 7 is on sale for $29 at dontcrack.com https://store.dontcrack.com/product_info.php?products_id=3864 Up to 20% lower with the "custom bundle" options Buy a second product and get 5% EXTRA DISCOUNT off both products Buy a third product and get 10% EXTRA DISCOUNT off all 3 products Buy a fourth product and get 15% EXTRA DISCOUNT off all 4 products Buy five products or more and get 20% EXTRA DISCOUNT off all of them (http://store.dontcrack.com/dc_shopping.php for details)
  9. You probably want to take a look at Biotek 2 I'd add to the list some AAS synths and at least one of the "vacuum tube virtual analogs", either AIR Vacuum Pro or Knifonium. You mentioned that you already have enough emulations of vintage synths but, if there is a little slack still left, I'd agree with the people that have suggested adding a collection of Xils Labs' synths (there's a pretty good deal right now with the "create your own bundle" options at dontcrack.com. It's at the top of my BF list, getting a few I don't yet have)
  10. If you already own other Kilohearts plugins, you may want to log in and check your upgrade deals first, directly at https://kilohearts.com, e.g., since I already have phaseplant and other plugins this is what shows up for me
  11. @D-Fused Sounds You may want to design the site to make it easier to answer the question "what plugins are on sale?". Right now it is easy to filter by category or by what's on sale but not both at the same time
  12. You can also get the whole deal https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/NxStudioCollBx--waves-nx-virtual-studio-collection-and-nx-head-tracker
  13. They are rare but yes, it does go on sale sometimes I got it in Oct 2018 but I vaguely remember having seen it on sale again every now and then. Sweetwater and Musiciansfriend have sales engineers that you can tell them what you're looking for and they'll alert you when there is a sale. Also, since $99 is the regular price, you want to look out for those generic coupons that are "nn% off regular priced items"
  14. Shows up as $5 for me, maybe because of having it already
  15. I can't fit it in this month's budget. I hope this one ends up in the store with a base price close to the current price
  16. Potentially even cheaper ($49 - 20%) from https://store.dontcrack.com if purchased as part of a custom 5 item bundle, e.g.
  17. For those that don't have an available sata port (or have a collection of unplugged older SSDs), this enclosure is on sale today https://www.newegg.com/orico-2139u3-bk-enclosure/p/0VN-0003-000Z5?Item=9SIA1DS4VX9128&cm_sp=Dailydeal_SS-_-9SIA1DS4VX9128-_-11162022
  18. Yes, the regular price for me shows as $149 and after selecting the upgrade option and letting the system confirm my eligibility I get $99. This sounds like the regular upgrade price though, not a discounted price (even if the result is 97% less than full price of the bundled plugins...)
  19. For me it greatly reduces "headphone fatigue", and I can do longer mixing sessions before having to take a break. Clanx is my favorite What has happened a couple of times is that I have forgotten to turn it off before doing the final render, and it's definitely not good having the downmix panned according to however I was moving my head while the render was in progress (note, it's not exactly turn off, I have a bus with meters and clanx and I switch it over to a bus with dithering instead but, for what I'm describing it's equivalent) The other detail to be careful about is that even when your levels are perfectly OK, if you have a master meter that is post-effect it may occasionally saturate because the volume slightly depends on whether you are leaning forward or back while listening,
  20. Given the season timing, seeing that wallpaper on the computer screen behind Simeon feels almost like going into a bar that has pictures of hangovers on its walls
  21. 😵 the Avid Pro Tools Studio 1-Year Software Updates + Support Plan is $209 after code GROUP... I'm really glad that last time it was below $100 I purchased multiple codes and I'm still covered for a couple of years
  22. For choosing a piano library, it can be helpful understanding what type of music Sampletekk would expect each one to be primarily used for https://www.sampletekk.com/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=9
  23. Support may take time but, for MMM and soundpools I have had no issues contacting a real person. I log in to my personal service area and use https://www.magix.info/us/support/form/
  24. Personally I am tremendously disappointed in PA subscription "deals", as they just change the terms whenever it gets convenient (case in point, how forever29 changed from "any plugin in our store that is not PA_EXT" to "any plugin in the XL bundle"). And they changed the terms after the fact, without any previous announcement. Even after reaching out to support, their answer essentially is "that's the deal, some of the plugins newly added to the store are now excluded, because we say so now and regardless of what we said when you purchased it" Once they have shown that they cannot be trusted to keep their word, you can start extrapolating and it gets pretty ugly. Who's to say that in a few months they won't start, e.g., excluding premium plugins from what you can purchase with the subscription vouchers, or changing the expiration terms so that you have to use existing vouchers right away (or lose them completely if you read the message too late), or both at the same time, or... When they arbitrarily go back on a subscription deal, our only recourse is taking them to court, which is a lot of a hassle, and for a small claim like this, a court won't really force them to honor the deal, at best I'd expect to get a refund. PA, specifically, has done an awesome job of reinforcing the idea that I am better off with permanent licenses
