One of the coolest things about the holiday season is the fact that some companies like to give away software plugins and virtual instruments for free or offer them for super cheap.
A couple of audio companies like Soundtoys and Waves already gave away a paid plugin for free on Black Friday, while others prefer to give away freebies around Christmas time.
There are already a few freebies being given away at present.
There’s also a no-brainer deal for the Orchestral Companion Strings by Sonivox for $1 at Plugin Boutique.
It normally sells for $100 so that’s pretty hard to pass up.
Then they have the premier collection upgrade for 60% off at $69.
Plugin Boutique also has Xpand!2 from Air Music on sale again for $1. But you can also get it for free through DJWorx.
Here’s the list of freebies and insane deals. Feel free to add more in the comments if you come across any.

God Bless you brother! I was trying to keep a track of free plugins that are given our during the holiday season and picked up quite a few. Your list helped me identify some that I might have missed out.
You’ve got a great blog running here.
Glad to help! Happy holidays!
will there be the same list this year?
Probably not. I’ve kind of gotten bored with free plugins. But you can find similar types of lists at KVR and Gearslutz. One deal I do know of is you can get Hybrid 3 for $1 at Plugin Boutique: https://www.pluginboutique.com/products/1545-Hybrid-3
