    What kind of deals have y'all run into for studio nerdery?

    I upgraded from Studio One 2 to Studio One 4 for $75 (50% off) and got the Neural DSP Darkglass plugin for 30% off. Not bad!

    I was hoping for some better deals from Slate. I wanted to buy the VMR, but their business model seems to have switched almost entirely toward the subscription based everything collection, and I really don't need every single thing they offer. The compressors and EQ are all I really want.

    I got brainworx bx_digital v3 for free with vouchers. been waiting to get that plugin for a while now!
    Debating if I want to grab elysia phil's cascade or upgrade to kontakt 6. I preordered the new Fortin NTS sim from Neural though!
    I grabbed Kazrog True Iron since I've been using the trial version a lot. Also picked up Sylenth1 and Synthmaster 2.9 + Synthmaster One

    Found a ridiculous deal that is no longer up. Musiciansfriend had the Softube Summit Audio Grand Channel for only $19. I had $10 in reward points making it only $9.

    I bought Mercurial Reaxis for 45USD. It's awesome sounding and a steal at that price!

    I got the BX SSLG, and picked up two ulrtawide monitors. If I wouldnt have already grabbed the BX plugin, I wouldve done the preorder for the Sonimus Satson Strip.

    I snagged some Line6 Helix presets (High Gain and Modern Essentials) from 3Sigma. Been recording some demo tracks for the band with them and they work quite well out of the box. Can't remember the exact pricing but they're pretty cheap.

    I bought some discounted ezmix packs (8 8 believe) and the metal! Expansion. Enjoying the ezmix stuff for easy song writing. Haven't messed around much with metal! yet though.

    I also bought thermoniak or whatever its called because the quality and quantity for 29.99 is fucking awesome!

    I bought Presonus Studio One 4 Pro. Had been eyeing that one for a while. Knowing that they don't have sales too often. Mostly -50% on Black Friday. Had a S1 2 Artist I got from somewhere so it was quite a decent price to upgrade to Pro (150€). Really happy with it, though it's quite different than Sonar i've been using for many years.

    The Toontrack sale is continuing thru to the end of the year. I can see myself picking up EZX Alt-Rock and maybe Metal Machine.
