I don't if it's been shared.
PluginAlliance ACME AudioOpticom XLA-3 only $29
with code 24H-AcmE-4929-190216B
WTF???? I got the code 24H-AcmE-4929-190216A and it only cuts the price to 49. (And sadly, I have placed my order) What kind of trick is this? I am a heavy hitter and on $75 voucher tier, is this how PA repay my loyalty? I'm opening up a ticket now.
Some anecdotal information:
I'm a heavy hitter at the $75 tier and already own the plugin and I did not get a voucher.
One of my sons, who is a heavy hitter at the $25 tier and owns 72 paid plugins, and has purchased something in the last few months got the $49 voucher.
Another son, who is not a heavy hitter and owns 60 purchased plugins and hasn't purchased anything for a while, got the $29 voucher.

If you own a plugin, PA does not send you any sales info and coupons for that plugin. I kind of appreciate that.

Well, it finally happened. If you are going for the Heavyocity NOVO Essentials intro or cross grade offer, be aware that this library requires Kontakt 6. It will not work in Kontakt 5. Fortunately it works with the free version of Kontakt 6.

I seriously need the NI Komplete upgrade sale now. Spring, where are you? :)
Don't those usually happen in the summer, around May or so? I'm debating whether or not to go up to KU or KU:CE. It'll basically depend on how much I want the Symphony series and the extra Maschine packs. :help:
Bookmarked the Google Sheet. :)
If I remember correctly, they call it Spring sale but it is more towards the end of Spring. Remember, Summer starts on June 21. ;)
Wasn‘t it called Summer of Sound?
Sometimes in summer, sometimes in spring. It's not the same every year.
Somebody compiled their sales history up to Feb 2018. Very comprehensive:

I guess they figured if you regularly buy their plugins, you would spend $49 for one. However, if you rarely buy plugins, they need to tempt you back with something lower priced. Probably didn't expect the sharing and discussion they are getting. I wonder what they think about the fact that people they send $49 codes to are using the $29 codes.....

I guess the moral here is: no matter what email you may get from PA, always check this forum before pulling the trigger, and also, if you're so inclined, join the "Audio Plugin Deals and Freebies - VST/AAX/AU and Sample Libraries" group on Facebook. They always share all deals and if something cheaper shows up, it will be there in the comments. It has saved me quite a bit of money.

I didn't get that email at all but it's showing on site as $129. Perhaps someone could share the $29 code.

Looks like PA are at it again. bx_townhouse $29. As someone who does not own an ssl bus comp, I’ll have to demo this. On what genre / best uses for this type of compressor?
