Just in time for Halloween, these software deals from Cherry Audio, Universal Audio, Novation and others are so good it’s almost scary! And be sure to check out a terrifying freebie from Acustica Audio!
Cherry Audio PS-3300
Cherry Audio’s PS-3300 is a faithful emulation of the ultra-rare behemoth of the same name by Korg. They began by modeling the original’s countless oscillators, discrete VCFs, and VCAs. But this wouldn’t be a Cherry Audio synth if they hadn’t added a whole bunch of useful features, like additional filter selections, tempo sync, CV-controllable per-channel panning, built-in FX, and other thoughtful additions.
An original PS-3300 could easily cost you six figures. Good thing Cherry Audio’s version is still available for the low intro price of $44 – that’s 35% off the regular price*.
XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2 Custom Collection
When it comes to sampled drums, Addictive Drums is still one of the most popular and versatile tools available to producers. And the AD2 Custom Collection is one of the best deals yet, as it allows you to tailor your drum and groove library to your preferences and style of music. You can choose from three ADpaks (kits), three MIDIpaks (beats), and three Kitpiece Paks (single drums). And it goes without saying that the full Addictive Drums 2 Engine is also included, which allows you to fine-tune and mix your drums in amazing detail.
But you’ll have to be really quick: The XLN Audio Addictive Drums Custom Collection is on sale until tomorrow (November 1st) for just $109 – that’s 35% off the regular price*.
Sonible smart:deess – Let AI take care of sibilance
The brand-new Sonible smart:deess harnesses the power of AI to take de-essing to a whole new level. The plugin analyses the signal content to build a “voiceprint” of the signal and detect any sibilants and plosives. Instead of simply attenuating everything within a given frequency range, smart:deess can distinguish between different phonemes such as S, Z, Sh, Ch, T, and P. It then treats the signal in the appropriate ways for the various sounds, allowing you to control sibilants more precisely than ever before.
Sonible smart:deess is on sale for $89 until December 1st – that’s 30% off the regular price*.
Universal Audio UAD Essentials Edition
I’m sure you’ve grabbed UA’s free LA-2A plugin – if not, today is the last day! Did you know that you can turn this freebie into a full suite of high-quality UAD plugins for under 50 bucks? The UAD Essentials Edition includes six effects ranging from the LA-2A and Pultec Collections to the Century Tube Channel Strip, Oxide Tape Recorder, and Galaxy Tape Echo to the Pure Plate Reverb. They also throw in the PolyMAX synth for good measure. It really is an essential collection of some of UA’s most popular plugins. A no-brainer!
The upgrade from the free LA-2A plugin to the Universal Audio UAD Essentials Edition is available for just $45 – a whopping 75% off the regular price*!
