Now that November has rolled around and Black Friday is just a couple of weeks away, a lot of companies have started offering up discounted music gear and software plugins for the holiday shopping season.
This time of year is always one of the best times to stock up on new gear because the prices often drop to their lowest of the year.
If you have your eye on a new instrument or some specific plugins, now is the time to keep that eye open for sales.
Below is a roundup of the sales pages for some of the more popular music websites.
One of the more notable deals that is currently active through November 17th is for the IK Master EQ 432. I tried the demo last night and it makes everything sound better, and it’s amazing how easy it is to use. Team it up with a limiter and it can take a flat song with no mixing and make it sound surprisingly good with just a few adjustments. The plugin normally sells for $149 but it’s on sale for $49.
IK has some other deals going on too, like their double down promo that runs through November. Gear credits are even on sale, so you could get the Master EQ 432 mentioned above for even less than the sale price, among other things.
This month the Eventide Tverb plugin is on sale for $99.
Melda has their Eternal Madness Discount that takes 50% off the price of four different plugins each week.
Here’s the list of holiday deals from various websites. Feel free to add more in the comments section.
