Black Friday 2016 – Our Handpicked List (If You Can’t Help It)

I’m not a fan of the whole Black Friday craziness, and I think we have already enough stuff to play with for the next century or so.
Hang out with your loved ones instead, or go out for a nice autumn walk.
That said, if you really can’t help it, here’s our hand-picked list for this year.

Sugar Bytes
All Sugar Bytes plugins down to $69. Great chance!

Save 25% on Live 9, upgrades and packs. What’s not to like?

Spitfire Audio
Multi-instrumentalist and electronic artist Ólafur Arnalds creates and curates a select quartet of unique string players performing to his very individualistic, inspiring and haunting aesthetic.
Available for a very short time at a discount price of £149 (RRP £199, roughly $229 USD and €209 EUR). Offer must end Friday 4th of December.

More from Spitfire Audio: starting at 9am EST on the 26th of November and ending sharp at 9am EST on Tuesday the 1st of December they will be extending their additional 15% off bundles again to you giving you the possibility of getting up to 50% off sold separate RRP depending on which bargain bundle you buy.
Also, they are discounting their entire individual product range by 25% off (very unusual for them!).

Soundtoys announced their Back in Black Friday Sale, with savings of 40 to 65 % off of regular prices. The sale also offers the 31st Annual NAMM TEC Award nominated Little AlterBoy plug-in for free in addition to deep discounts on the recently released Soundtoys 5, which features all 18 Soundtoys plug-ins and new dongle-free workability. Offer ends 11/30. Honestly, if you don’t have any of their stuff, the bundle now at $299 is hard to beat.


More quality sample libraries here. Take 35% off over nearly everything in their store. Choose from over a hundred different instruments at deep discounts from now until December 1st!

If our Composer Cloud review got you curious, check out EastWest’s Black Friday sale, they have some special Composer Cloud offers, including a yearly subscription for only $299 (saving you $184).

Not really a Black Friday sale, but the 40% off intro sale on their awesome Anthology X ends in a few days, so you’d better hurry.

How about learning those tools you bought and never used to their full potential? Check out the offers on downloads and yearly subscription at Groove3. I’d recommend their yearly pass, now $99 instead of $150!

Plenty of offers from Arturia these days. Given our very positive Microbrute review, I’d recommend getting one (it’s only $299). Also, their iPad apps (iSem, iProphet, iMini) are 50% off.

Have you read our Apogee One review or our Apogee DUET review but haven’t pulled the trigger yet? If you live in the States now it’s your chance. Apogee is offering up to 55% off through its US web store. All sale items are refurbished Apogee products and come with a FREE 2 Year Apogee Assure Premium Service Plan & Extended Warranty.


ModeAudio is celebrating by slicing an epic 50% off every last one of their 87 sound packs, through till Monday November 30th!

One of our favorite iOS apps developers, maker of the uber-brilliant Fugue Machine and Arpeggionome Pro, is having a special 50% off sale. You won’t find these apps on sale anytime soon, so don’t miss out.

All their apps are on sale. We definitely recommend Sector (to know why, check out our Sector review) and AUFX:SPACE. Check the rest as well, lots of very cool stuff!

Elastic Drums and WretchUp! (now also for iPad) are both 50% off. Go and make some noise!

We’ll update this post as new interesting offers get announced, stay tuned…
