The only thing I bought (so far) was Mixchecker Pro from Best Service for 42.70 or something like that.

Not like it's gonna help make mixes crank on an android but I couldn't help it.

I have twitchy fingers over seventh heaven for about the same money but for whatever reason have not pulled the trigger.

Everything I didn't own from UAD, minus a few amp sims.  

My UAD don't own list is down to 50 items:

14 items that I don't really need but would like to have one day.
24 items are already owned by other vendors (IKM, PluginAlliance, Softube, Eventide & Sonnox)
That leaves 12 LUNA based items I'll def never need. I don't intend to go to LUNA on my Mac.

Very light for me too

Multiphonics CV-1 for $34

4 EZ Keys libraries for $10

Also both of the Studio Sessions banks for REmatrix,  

I was planning on getting the Bitwig 4 upgrade but after JRR shop is not applying coupons to that one, I need to decide which other retailer selling that has the best goodies.

I'm contemplating upgrading my Embertone Walker 1955 Grand Piano from the lite version to the full version. If anyone has it and wants to give their thoughts Im all ears -- well metaphorically (literally eyes, but that doesn't sound as good). 

I thought about doing that too, but held off. It seems like a good 'deal' for $50, but that same $50 would get you Simple Sam's Signature Grand (also a Steinway D) if you don't have it, and the presets on that are really, really good. Plus, it only takes a fraction of the drive space.

I know Fleer is a big fan of the Walker, but I've never bonded with the lite version - and it doesn't even run well on my machine (which handles VSL/Garritan/Bechstein libraries etc without a hitch).

So it appears that our rampant consumerism has significantly slowed down this year. Either that or we've all reached the point where there's hardly anything left that we don't already own.  Or, perhaps, a lot of us are more broke this year than in past years?

I could never get the lite version installed properly with their update, so I really haven't got to enjoy the lite library. I don't know why they don't simply offer customers a single download for the entire library since they made the patch a long time ago. But what really has caught my attention is YouTuber Corey Pelizarri's review.  BTW, Embertone gives you a discount equivalent to whatever price you paid for lite when you upgrade to the full version. But like anything, these instruments are incredibly subjective. But it is Corey's review and hearing the piano as he played and went through features that really made me love the sound of this piano -- and 50 bucks is a great deal for the quality. Simple Sam's Grand  did sound nice, but preferred this one and it has una corda samples and different mics too.

Note, Corey stands in stark contrast to your typical YouTube sample reviewers after freebies and kickbacks from developers and tending to shill and not be honestly critical. Corey can be brutally critical and constantly has insights that any quality dev can learn from.  He isn't a affiliate marketer (really, an online salesperson for the libraries) like most YouTubers reviewing sample libraries and plugins which is great, because he's not selling the products he's reviewing. He is my absolute favorite YouTuber who reviews sample libraries and plugins. 

UPDATE: I was confusing the Simple Sam library with another dev's piano library. I never heard that Simple Sam piano library before and love it. Thanks alot, @Craig Fowler! I went from convincing myself to get the Embertone piano to being completely split. Wow, I love both of these pianos.

I had set aside $1,000,000 to buy plugins,

TC tuner for 9, SWAM brass collection for 390, Softube Tape echoes 45, bohemian cello 149.

Point is, I saved $999, 407 dollars.

Never tried the lite version but I do (still) love the full shebang.

No one--including me tbh--cares about what plugins I bought, but I got a great deal on a thick NY strip steak which I brought home and made the perfect medium rare steak. I seasoned it perfectly, too, since I finally put down the pre-made steak seasonings and just went w/ course kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I got the perfect sear and it was the best steak I've made. I also finally found the perfect percale queen flat sheet after trying several very expensive flat sheets that were not up to my standard but should have been at over $100 for a sheet. Percale is hard to come by as everything is sateen these days, but Amazon's own house brand hooked up a great queen percale sheet for $23. And I got a food saver, a nice one but you shoulda seen that steak.

Nowt - as we say in Yorkshire 🙂 Though I did get Syntronik CS at a good Yorkshire price!

 

So do we pronounce you name Bradford or Bratfud? *I lived in Leeds (1993 while 2000),

Largely broke, so anything over $50 was a non-starter. 

Downloaded and demoed a bunch of stuff from Baby Audio, Fuse Audio, WA Production, Overloud, and decided I didn't need or even want any of it. At least not at the moment. The deals weren't so great that they won't come around again.

Wound up buying Nomad Factory '80s Spaces from Audiodeluxe ($19), as it at least filled a hole in collection. Got the UVI Digital Synsations as a freebie. Hadn't realized that the UVI thing was mostly a sample-playback thing ala Syntronik, and probably will never use it, though the Ensoniq VFX sounds are pleasing.

Also picked up 2getheraudio's Rich DRUM because I demoed it on a track I was working on and I liked what it did sufficiently that I 'needed' it. Wasn't on sale, beyond their normal "it's ostensibly $50, but pay what you will" pricing.

Only thing I wanted that I didn't buy (yet) was the WA Productions "Ascension 1.5 + all the patches in the world" bundle for $40 at Plugin Boutique. 

Would've loved to pick up Tantra 2, but even at half-price ($99) it's overpriced for my limited uses.

Your best bet for picking up recent releases at PA is to get the plugins when they are on sale individually and you can stack a $75 or $50 voucher (if you didn't get one of these, ask around, or use a Buy&Sell forum). E.g.

11/4/2021

1 DS Audio TANTRA 2 $149.99

2021-11 Customer Loyalty Monthly Vouchers - $75

SLO: DS Audio Tantra 2 for $99.99 -$50

Total $24.99
