Waves Free Black Friday Plugin (2020)
The Black Friday plugin deals happen every year, and start between the 1st -15th of November, with some plugin retailers ending the sale period on January the 10th. Last year they started on the 1st of November, and finished on the 10th of January.
You can expect a plethora of incredible plugin deals this year, including big, industry names like:
And pretty much every audio plugin manufacturer out there
When the Black Friday sales finish, you’ll also be able to continue the audio plugin savings, with Cyber Monday lasting through January 1st, and then, after that, the Christmas plugin deals begin!
Cyber Monday & Christmas aren’t usually as juicy as the big fixture, but you can still get some awesome deals if you get Christmas money or missed out on the Black Friday deals.
Every year you’ll also get big names giving out free plugins. For the last decade, Waves have given out a free plugin each year. And this year we doubt it’ll be any different.
You can amount a pretty good selection of Waves plugins just by taking part in this free plugin give-away every year, so be sure to sign-up for that.

When Is Cyber Monday This Year (2021)?
Cyber Monday starts when Black Friday finishes – the 30th of November, and can last until January 10th! You can expect some incredible plugin deals throughout this period too, but they’re usually not as good as the Black Friday plugin deals.

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday originally started on American soil, back in the 1950s as a seasonal promotion for people to save money throughout the holiday period. Although it’s been around for such a long time, it has only recently become a big thing in Europe.
With the increase in popularity of Black Friday, the deals & discounts you can get in 2021 are now more than ever! It’s a time of year where all the biggest music retailers, software & plugin giants pull out all the stops to bring you the best pre-Christmas discounts & sales.
We’re from the U.K. and can remember a time not so long ago that Black Friday didn’t even exist – so count your lucky stars it has increased in popularity, because the savings on software, hardware & plugins has been exceptional every time around.
Not that you didn’t shop online anyway & of course with lockdown, well…
This means that all of the deals are only available online.
And while this doesn’t make a difference for plugins, if you’re the type that likes to go to the store to pick up hardware, then you won’t be able to make use of the deals in store on Cyber Monday.
Cyber Monday is a great day to pick up deals on tech & hardware, with certain retailers offering site-wide discounts across all items.
What’s The Difference Between Black Friday & Cyber Monday
It can be hard to see an actual difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday.
With so many sales going on, it can feel like one gigantic godzilla-like sales event.
The key difference to note is that Cyber Monday is entirely online, while Black Friday is both online and in-store.
Both sales will have tonnes of great deals on plugins, hardware and new music tech. So, whether you’re looking for a new pair of studio headphones, a synth or a new MIDI keyboard – you’ll be able to find a good deal.
On Cyber Monday, we can expect to see better deals on some music products than others.
For instance, if you’re looking for tech (like a new music production computer), it might be worth waiting until November 30th to see what deals are offered over the Black Friday ones.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for audio plugin deals – they’re usually much better throughout the Black Friday period and span from the 27th – 30th.
Some places even offer free downloads of plugins/software on Cyber Monday, so be sure to keep an eye out for that!
