How To Be Prepared For The Black Friday Music Deals (2021)

With the holiday season slowly creeping up on us this year, it’s important to be prepared for the Black Friday plugin deals & music deals in 2021.

That’s why in this article we’re going to be sharing how you can best be prepared to make the best of the savings this year.

1. Start Saving Money Now

This one sounds pretty obvious, but there’s a difference between knowing it and actually putting it into action.

If you’re anything like us, saving money is the last thing on your mind and it never gets done, so setting the intention now to put away 10-20% of your wage each month in the run-up to Black Friday will help massively.

Even if you don’t spend it all, you have more to play with, and spend on the plugins you actually need.

The deals every year are always incredible, and most years, we’ve been disappointed that we didn’t save more. There are a lot of plugins that are expensive like, Melodyne, iZotope suite & Fabfilter plugins that go on sale.

You can pick up pretty much everything you’ll ever need for over a 50% saving, so think ahead and start saving for the sales. You’ll thank your past self for doing so.

2. Sign Up To Mailing Lists

The Black Friday plugin deals can get pretty hectic, and you can often miss some of the best sales if you don’t stay up-to-date with it all.

By signing up to plugin distributors mailing lists, you can stay informed on all the best deals throughout the period.

Some of the best lists to sign up to are:

  1. Whipped Cream Sounds – Loads of free resources for signing up!
  2. Plugin Boutique
  3. Bedroom Producers Blog

By signing up to any of these, you’ll get the best Black Friday music deals straight to your inbox. This will ensure you don’t miss out on anything over the holiday period.

3. Bookmark The Black Friday Plugin Deals List

Another way you can stay up-to-date on all the latest deals, and avoid the emails piling up on each other (there are a lot that go out), you can bookmark the Black Friday plugin deals list.

This is a list we’ve created every year (for the past 3 years), and we update it hourly throughout the sales period, so you know what the latest deals are. We scour the internet for hours to make sure you’re getting all the best deals, and never missing out on something important!

If you want to check the list out, be sure to go to our Black Friday plugin deals page, and check back every day for all the new, updated offers.

4. Join Audio Plugin Communities

Another incredible way to stay informed of the best deals throughout Black Friday, is by joining communities.

Communities are not only a great place to chat with like-minded people, make friends, collab, and get feedback on your tracks, but they’re also a fantastic place to stay updated on amazing plugin deals.

One thing that’s great about music communities is that you can start threads, and converse with people about what the best deals are, & whether they’re a great saving or, if it’s better to wait for another big sale.

The best communities to join for audio plugin deals are:

  1. Whipped Cream Sounds – Music Production & Audio Gear
  2. r/AudioProductionDeals
  3. Audio Plugin Deals

5. Create A Plugin Boutique Account

Being totally honest with you, most of the incredible sales all happen in one place – Plugin Boutique.

Having an account on Plugin Boutique is a must throughout this period, because they offer some fantastic bonuses for signing up and having an account.

You can get:

  • Tokens
  • More discounts
  • Virtual cash

If you’re gonna be buying a lot through the Black Friday period, it’s a good idea to have an account. These bonuses will all add up, and might even give you some extra buying power to get the plugins you want and need.

After Black Friday, you’ll also get a tonne of benefits for being a Plugin Boutique member.

They offer free downloads every month, virtual cash on your purchases, and keep you up-to-date on the greatest savings all year around.

They also team up with plugin manufacturers like iZotope, Native Instruments & other big names, to offer free plugins and fantastic deals, all year round.
