Native Instruments is doing 50% off on almost all products (both new licenses and updates/upgrades unlike in previous years where only updates/upgrades were discounted): https://www.native-instruments.com/en/s ... ound-2023/
That means:

KOMPLETE 14 new license:
Select: $99
Standard: $199
Ultimate: $599
Ultimate CE: $899
Updates/upgrades cheaper obviously.

Also on sale: KONTAKT 7 and various instruments/effects; TRAKTOR PRO 3; MASCHINE hardware; KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware; KOMPLETE AUDIO hardware
Since iZotope has joined NI, the same goes for basically all of their products.

KV331 Audio's SynthMaster 2 is currently 78% off - $29 instead of $129. If you want to do some fairly involved synth tinkering but not drop a lot of money on something like Omnisphere, HALion, Reaktor, Falcon or some such, you could do a lot worse than this. Sale ends tomorrow.

I think I might be able to get it for $19 (upgrade from SynthMaster One), but since I don't think I've ever even used SynthMaster One... I wonder if I should do this... hahaha. Is this the full fledged version? I guess I should research this... eh?

Edit: Welp, I bought it... except even though I was logged into the website with my user account, they decided that they'd create a new user account based on my Paypal email address... so I've got to wait for support to fix my license issue before I can try it out as all of my other content is tied to my account (obvs). I hate when (I assume) Paypal does this, though I suppose it's on the websites themselves to not automatically use the Paypal email address when a user is signed into their account with a different email address. Bleh.

If you haven't picked it up already, UAD is offering a their LA2A for free. I love this compressor and it is my go to for vocals.

https://www.uaudio.com/uad-plugins/comp ... essor.html

Once you have that, you can upgrade to a whole suite of their plugins for $50:

Totally worth it.

Nice! I grabbed that compressor a few days ago, and got the others now. Thanks for the info!

BFD3 is once again at its cheapest: $49 (regular >$300). Also all expansions are on sale, up to 75% off (but most more like 50%).
https://www.kvraudio.com/marketplace/de ... t-discount or via the BFD website, https://bfddrums.com/ (check both places, not everything is cheaper in the same place. In particular, Dark Farm and 8 Bit Kit are much cheaper on the official website.)

Wow — IKMultimedia's MixBox is on sale for only $29. Great price for 70ish plugins in one. There are also other deals at IKM right now.

If you still don't have a pair of studio monitors, or you want a second pair, or you need some powered speakers for a stereo system, today's Stupid Deal of the Day is Mackie CR3-X 3" powered studio monitors for $50. I have a pair of these and have been surprised by how good they sound. Certainly better than $50 monitors should.
