Thanks for posting this.
Thanks – it’s a bit of work to organize all the info, but we figure it will save readers tons of time.
We added sorting and search this time, to make all the info easier to work with.
There are tons of deals on software again this year, but also some good hardware deals. Sorry if this causes G.A.S.!
the Metric Halo plugins are on sale until nov 30
truly helpful, thanks!
Bastl Instruments (makers of the Kastle, Microgranny and SoftPop series) has opened its own e-shop and is celebrating with a sitewide 30% discount: https://shop.bastl-instruments.com/
Thanks for this list !
La Voix du Luthier is also in (coupon MOVEMBER gives 10% on all resonators) 😉
Long time no see, Christophe! I added this to the list.
all midi2themax products are 50% off, including MXL PACK monster collection of 40+ M4L devices for Ableton Live … use the coupon BLKFR22 at https://midi2themax.gumroad.com/
Thanks, it’s nice to see a list like this.
Thank you, Synthhead, some interesting deals here and I’m sure it took a long time to compile this list! I’m going to buy the Arturia V Collection update and call it a day.
Helpful. Thank you.
Don’t forget: buying used is often cheaper than a 10% discount, so don’t feel FOMO if you let a “deal” pass
There are also discounted IK Multimedia hardware; saving up to $/€200 on some analog synth and drums.
For example UNO Synth Pro keyboard is now $/€499.99 only.
Updated in table. Thanks!
Thanks for compiling this. I got a couple of useful tools from the list. Early Xmas!
After spending the last 2 hours clicking every one of these links and fighting the urge to buy anything, I can go to sleep now. Its 1:17am. Goodnight and thanks for the G.A.S…. Probably going to get Soothe 2 and Spiff on sale tomorrow:)
HARVEST PLUGINS Black Friday offer: HARVEST + FORAGER on sale for $25 (74% off) (or any of them alone for $15). Worth every cent! Go get it before it’s too late, dudes:
Great job posting this.
I think I’ll take ANA SYNTH 2.5 from Sonic Academy… been eyeing it for a very long time.

AIR are offering up to 90% off instruments
