I grabbed the Embertone Woodwinds bundle currently on sale. These are libraries with quite unique sounds and each with their own personnality. The Herring Clarinet, the Recorders, among others, are really great. I also like the Sensual Saxophone, this one ready just in time for Valentine Day!

Yep, told ya. Embertone is one of those companies, like ImpactSoundworks or Soundiron, that succeed in bringing the best of sounds at human prices. And this bundle is crazy good. But then I’m a woodwinds player myself.

Yes, the Embertone one would be much more interesting if I didn't own half of the ones in the bundle. I'd basically be buying it for the Herring - I'd be better off waiting for a sale and getting it then. But I agree, Embertone, ImpactSoundworks and Soundiron all make great instruments that are usually slightly different from your standard instruments and many are at really great prices.

It's true that Impact Soundworks and Soundiron are also releasing great products. I discovered Embertone with the current bundle deal and if their other products are as good, I will check them closely.

Huh. It might be worth mentioning that Melda's 40%-off Valentines Day deal includes the MFreeFXBundle. I've seen several times here people asking if it ever goes on sale. This brings the price down to 29 Euros, which is a pretty good deal, IMHO.

I apologise in advance if I'm being incredibly dim, but how is it that these are "free" if they cost €29? They are all listed as free but the bundle costs €29?!

I don't understand!

Melda should probably call it the Freemium Bundle or something. The free ones have some limitations in terms of GUI colours and styling, preset and sample-rate management. The €29 unlocks those features. If you don't need those features, the free ones work fine: https://www.meldaproduction.com/MFreeFXBundle

Doesn't make much sense but it appears that the paid version allows you to save presets, have access to more parameters and remove the nag screen amongst other things. I guess these are the full versions of the plugins at that point but I'd agree that someone seems to have an odd concept of "free".

Wow that sucks I would definitely buy this if it included the crossgrade. I don't know now. What do you guys think? Not really something I need but a great discount nonetheless
