The ANNUAL Post Your BF Bounty Thread!


Recommended Posts

I was asymptomatic until yesterday then GAS symptoms made themselves plain. I tried to self Isolate from this thread and TTF's listing but to no avail.

Picked Up Loopcloud 3 months for £3 and got the free Bassmaster plugin, picked up Vacuum classic for £9 and got free Drumazon, Picked up Oxford Inflator for £34 and got free Mixmasters Animate and then picked up Slate Fresh Air. Hoping Melodyne change their minds on cyber Monday on the v4 studio upgrade. If not might pick up an interface from Focusrite for my son as a Xmas present

Since I really did not find my specific wish (ProTools Upgrade Perpetual to Ultimate Perpetual), all I really got was a $149 upgrade to the UAD Neve Complete Collection. Which now gave me a $25 coupon good until 28 Dec 2020. Not sure I will use it though since I have very little else from UAD that I'm craving where $25 will make a serious dent. In fact I'm craving very little from them these days.

Not a BF deal but I did subscribe to a year of the full Kush audio suite for $99.

I did get a Riffendium loyalty offer for $58 from AudioPluginDeals, so I took them up on that. Got packs 4,5,6 and the bass pack brought me up to owning the entire Riffendium suite.

Got the Samsung QVO 860 SSD for $100 and that other 500Mb SSD that was discussed as a system drive for $50.  Now I can focus on not buying software.  Yeah, right.

I have to turn off my computer tomorrow.  It will be tough learning about any killer Cyber Monday deals after the fact but I'm tapped out:

1. Got the drives mentioned above

2. AT5 update

3. Orb Producer Suite

4. Ownhammer IRs

5. The usual freebies (thanks, Larry!)

Awesome.  And sad.  Before I posted I went to the the APD Shop and by brands Audioifier and it's not listed there (nor is the complete bundle) so I figured it wasn't in the shop.

Right...they're pretty "all over" with where the products are in that Menu system!

Offhand, here's what I recall purchasing this weekend:

- Beautiful Void Audio - A synth library, I forgot the name
- IamLamprey - Some really cool sample libraries from a very creative independent developer
- Izotope Excalibur - multi-effect
- Frozen Plain Artic Strings
- SampleTekk - various upgrades to my old piano libraries and a couple of new pianos
- Sample Fuel - various synth libraries
- Sospiro Strings Ben Osterhouse - maybe the best deal of all this year. A beautiful KONTAKT sample library featuring bass, cello, viola and violin for under $35 USD. 
- Sound Dust Flutter Dust 
- Splash Sound upright piano library
- Synthmaster One
- Miscellaneous small libraries and synth patches from independent developers at Loot Audio and elsewhere 

Not for me, but I bought my teenage son a gaming PC, which I'm also going to install Cakewalk, Reason Lite (which I picked up at Plugin Boutique for free, and various VSTs and sample libraries for him when it gets here tomorrow.  

I'm contemplating whether or not to upgrade to the latest versions of Melodyne Studio and Studio One Pro (opinions of users is welcomed).
