Faxi’s Formula Two Sample pack (normally 15e)
Faxi’s Sample Stash V1 (normally 5e)
+ cut-words samplepack – unreleased, unsold, friends only normally!!!!!
GRAB NOW FOR 10e total!!!
Waves better not be slammed this time 🙂 hehehe
Well, they didn’t include the SSL Bundle in their sale. Which is IMO retarded.

Teenage Engineering 15% off (Black Friday)
Also, Oplab is back in stock.

Unfortunately this info is wrong, no sales on Komplete bundles 🙁
are you sure? i haven’t been able to get on to their site all day but they sent out an email saying komplete and komplete ultimate were 50% off!
It’s definitely true–I just got a Komplete Upgrade for $75!
I would get it but the website seemed to say only a boxed version is available…the only new thing from K8 is Monarch, Battery 4 and those EQs…do I really have to get that gigantic effing box shipped to me for that? Hell, I don’t even want Battery just Monarch and the EQS.
I got following information from NI site : “The special offer is not valid on full versions of KOMPLETE 9 and KOMPLETE 9 ULTIMATE, accessories, bags, or NI Wear, KOMPLETE AUDIO 6, GUITAR RIG 5 KONTROL, RIG KONTROL, ACTION STRIKES, KINETIC METAL, LAZER DICE, RESONANT BLAZE.Not valid on TRAKTOR products except for TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR DJ for iPad and iPhone. iMASCHINE and TRAKTOR DJ are available from the Apple App Store. All other offers apply to the NI Online Shop only. ” So, I think the informatioin I gave earlier was correct.
wtf, no sale from propellerheads? guess my black friday gear money goes to fxpansion…dcam synthsquad for 100 bucks? sold!
Propellerheads is having a sale on rack extensions, but it’s Black Friday only. Check their site tomorrow.
presonus 50% for software
I am SO BUMMED that Waves didn’t even include the Waves SSL Bundle in their sales. That’s just plain mean, almost all the bundles are on sale, EXCEPT the SSL. What is that all about?
koma elektronik is offering up to 50 EUR off on their pedals and free shipping on the kommander!
You can get an Ableton Push on the Fancy app, for -30%. Got one today at -20%, didnt know a better deal was coming…
oh boy, just made the worst black friday purchase…for some reason i turned down the 1st gen ipad mini for $250 for a 2013 nexus 7 for $240…why oh why did i do such a thing…there are music apps for this thing right? RIGHT? I bought it because like my trusty old Archos tablet that croaked last month I thought it would have a micosd and file browser and all that nice Androidy openess…screw that, no sd slot and to do anything you have to be logged into an NSA, err, I mean Google account. Wow, so much buyers remorse right now…as somebody who looks at Synthtopia 20 times a day I should have known better, I really should have…sigh…
