For these companies that have such frequent/semi-regular sales that so often run at 50% or more...

Does anyone think that a second hand purchase of them should be any more than half of those regular "sale" prices?

My rule of thumb is 2nd hand price should be around the lowest sale price. Slightly lower if sale is often, slightly higher if sale is rare.

Ofc, sellers are free to set prices as they want. This is just the price range where I will consider buying.

I agree.
This is just my opinion, but I think Waves continuous discounts has certainly had an impact on some plugin vendors (and the market in general) who are now also doing major "sales" or best sale ever more often (i.e. Plugin Alliance, McDSP, etc...). As a whole, I think it will also reduce the 2nd hand market price further for the same reason.

Waves were the ones who kicked off the $29 craze - and I am happy for Plugin Alliance to follow suit.

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? :)
I don't need this one, since I already have NOVO, but I guess it can be a nice introduction to this really great product.

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.

Thanks for the tip to this Facebook page. I guess you must have helped them grow their members base, they just made a long list of recent new members.

It does add a few nice presets that NOVO does not have and is only $19 for the crossgrade. It’s more like an expansion. The samples are the same but the instruments differ.

thanks.
i have bought someting in the past but didn't get a voucher emailed
To get a $25 voucher, you need to have spent at least $50 net (before any taxes) in the last 12 months and have subscribed to the mailing list. There have been cases of people having both and still not getting any vouchers. Usually reaching out to Plugin Alliance support will get that resolved.
I didn't bought from them for a while, but I couldn't resist their one-two punch sales for Opticom and Townhouse.

For just $49.99, get Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion by Impact Soundworks!

This exquisite symphonic collection for KONTAKT features a comprehensive collection of 50 traditional & extended percussive instruments recorded through three mic positions.

With a clean, focused character that is not clinically dry OR overly ‘epic’, Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion is highly flexible for everything from small ensemble scoring and intimate cues to dramatic & bombastic.

No other percussion library is as extensive AND affordable!

Great stuff from ImpactSoundworks, love their percussion.
Really great library! And half of the money back in store credits!

I went to the Wusik site and played their discount code scratch game and received an 80% off code.
Full versions of Wusik One & Wusik Station V10 (Preorder) for $21.98 in total was hard to pass on especially as they come with an interesting library.
I'm glad you are happy with the new S&W idea. :cool: :hug:

Cheers, WilliamK
Where are the 49$ upgrade deals for Wusik users? Those were great deals, but I don't see those prices anywhere on your website...

I can't comment on which is better but definitely demo Abbey Road Plates before you buy. It's a CPU killer.
