Black Friday 2017

Postby Guy Rowland » Nov 14, 2017 6:52 pm

Set credit cards to stun.

This won't be a completely exhaustive list, there's just too much stuff to make it practical. However, this will hopefully be a one stop shop for all the big deals, plus some smaller gems that might otherwise get lost in the noise. I'll keep this OP updated - please post below if you see something good not in the list. And a general tip - resellers such as JRRshop, AudioDeluxe, Plugin Discounts etc might have additional savings on top of these.

Thanks Jaap - according to the iZotope website they're rolled out week by week, and I wasn't sure all the Best Service prices were yet discounted. So I've added iZotope to the OP with the official line of new discounts each week.

I've been waiting for a deep discount on Adaptiverb but I don't see it on JRRshop, where it's listed for $229 USD. (Ok, it's cheaper than Zynaptiq's site, but definitely not 44% off.)

Yeah, on my JRR shop flyer they definitely say 44% off Adaptiverb but I noticed it was missing on the site - a glitch hopefully.

Have to agree, Thrill is one of the first such libraries that grabbed my attention. I _could_ create a lot of the same sounds, but this would make it so much faster - and easier! And I'm impressed with the quality of the sounds they used as source material too.

Doing my best to resist this year. Unsubscribed from all music product mailing lists. We'll see how that goes. Do appreciate the effort here though.

Thanks Quasar, added - just to add that I tried Expose last week, and I thought it was truly awful. Red flagged literally everything I threw at it, inc stellar commercial mixes. You've be better off spending $12 on a whip and beating yourself with it non-stop for a month imo. But hey, it's a free trail and YMMV.

LOL. I looked at it and came to a similar tentative conclusion, although their Reference plug (not on sale ATM) does look quite useful, potentially.

I do hope to find time to compare how it responds to proven pro mixes side-by-side in CD 44.1/16b vs. the various lossy formats found on iTunes etc., but I haven't put that together yet. In fairness to any product that tries to do what Expose purportedly offers, it would seem almost impossible to account for all of the file types out there, not to mention changes in styles over time, so-called loudness wars and all of that... But yeah, unless I learn something I don't know now, I'm taking a pass on this too.

Here's FX only track from a show I'm working on.
The whip is the last thing in the clip, had to show more else you'd think we whip our children... :shock:

Edit: removed the video, Guy kindly informed me this thread is open for all.
Will post videos to demo the instrument (see below

Most of the soundeffects are run from a kontakt instrument I've made.
Will make it (the instrument) public when all the episodes are done.
Most of the sounds are mine, but some are from soundfx libraries I've bought over the years.
Need to change those IE the question about the whip.

OT.
A sound effect are running it's BF sale
https://www.asoundeffect.com/superb-sound-effects-sale/

AS are BOOM (you can get them from asoundeffect)
http://www.boomlibrary.com/

Best,
Anders

PS. please do not post the video on other sites

Audiority is having a 25% off sale for all of their products, except bundles and this new hardware emulation delay/echo thing called Echoes T7E.

I was really taken with the demo of this, and it's only $29 US on intro, so I bought it:
