It seems Black Friday is not so big as it was a few years back. Good for sustainable consumption regarding stuff, but for software it doesn't matter of course from an environmental viewpoint.

I haven't seen any thread for this, so I'll make an effort here. Here are my personal favourites:

1. Boz: agressive pricing at the moment, and GREAT products.
I personally like ProVocative as my voice is rather thin. At Gearslutz they seem to hate it due to phasing that vocal doubling can result in (not saying that happens with Provocative), but then again, there's more hate over there than at KVR. :lol: :hug:

2. The upgrade to Melodyne Assistant from Essential, only 49 euros at celemony.com. UPDATE: EVEN CHEAPER AT JRR AND AUDIODELUXE - 40 euros (see post below)
This is quite a bargain, considering how many of us have got Essential for more or less free through buying other stuff. If you don't have Essential, it's half off at the moment. Thus, you'll get from zero to Melodyne Assistant for 100 euros (reg price 249)!

It was kind of hard to hunt down, but this is how to do it: :cool:

1. Go to celemony.com
2. Go to Shop
3. Get Essential if you don't have it
4. Select Assistant (even though it says 249 euros)
5. On the new page, you should find small print saying it's only 49 euros right now, as an upgrade from Essential.

I just bought it and it works. :tu:

3. Maybe this might interest someone:

It's all about getting a good master. I wasn't thrilled by EQuivocate honestly, but others liked it, when it was briefly available for free.

Anything else that pops out? Add it to this thread. Please no 25 % off on sound libraries etc, but real bargains on really useful things (is the idea, anyway).

There's one more week to go, so we'll see. U-he has 30% off for existing customers.

That's probably the one thing I'll be buying. And it's roughly $44 (€40) in the cart at JRR and AudioDeluxe.

Darn! I only checked pluginboutique and it was more expensive there.

I just noticed that the upgrade from Melodyne Assistant to Melodyne Editor (same thing but for polyphonic audio editing) is 89 euros at JRRShop (when added to the cart, first it's 99 euros).
https://www.jrrshop.com/celemony-melody ... -assistant
Not of interest to me (I only use Melodyne for vocals) but maybe for someone else. Anyway, it's a great price.

No, you're right. But the price is the same on both sites until the product is added to the cart at JRR. It really confuses me! :?

any reasons to upgrade to Melodyne Assistant if I mostly use cubase variaudio for pitch correction?

How is the Boz Transgressor?
Seems interesting but I do have other transient designers like Meldas multiband stuff and Auburn's Couture.


I got Melda Mdrummer for only 120 at dontcrack, quite lower than what anyone else is selling it for. I think it ends Saturday though.
Volko Baglama was also on sale for around 12 dollars at Dontcrack, if you're interested in the free Bluetubes 3DDelay it's a decent purchase to get it.
Izotope's Ozone 8 is 50 bucks on pluginboutique, they also have a nice "black friday" elements bundle with DDLY, Trash and Mobius Filter.
The Stagecraft Theremin is 7 bucks, I got that one for some fun.

That's just what I've got so far, I'm definitely saving for Friday.
