Will Plugin Alliance Have A Black Friday Sale?
Plugin Alliance has been offering Black Friday sales for the past few years. In 2017, they had a promotion called “Every Friday is Black Friday” which lasted for the entire month of November. In 2022, they offered a Mega Sale with discounts of up to 90% on 150 plugins. This year’s Black Friday plugin deals are expected to drop in late November.
Plugin Alliance often release free versions of certain plugins during Black Friday, with the option to upgrade to the paid version at a discounted rate. While the specific plugins can vary from year to year, here are some examples of freebies they have given away in the past:
- bx_subfilter: A powerful low-end filter plugin.
- Brainworx bx_rockrack Player: A guitar amp simulation plugin.
- Lindell Audio 6X-500: An analog channel strip emulation.
- SPL Free Ranger: A versatile EQ plugin.
How to make the most of the Plugin Alliance sale: Which deal(s) should I get as a priority?
Explore these standout plugins that have gained immense popularity:
- Shadow Hills Class A is modelled after one of the most exclusive and powerful compressors ever built, making it an excellent option for side chain compression enthusiasts.
- Knif Audio Knifonium offers a meticulous recreation of the iconic Knifonium Synthesizer, driven by 26 vacuum tubes and favoured by legendary producers like Hans Zimmer; and for that distinct SSL sound.
- The bx_console SSL 9000 J is a must-have, providing a TMT emulation of the SSL 9000 J and seamlessly integrating the legendary studio console into your DAW with controls for compressors, gates, gain, and faders across 72 channels.
How To Get Plugin Alliance Plugins Cheaper Outside Of Sales Like Black Friday Deals?
Rent to own
Plugin Alliance offers an introductory rent-to-own pricing for their “PA Releases 2023” bundle. This bundle allows users to own every plugin released by Plugin Alliance in 2023 for a monthly fee of $39.99 (10 monthly instalments).
Plugin Alliance provides diverse product bundles tailored to various requirements, with savings rates contingent on the specific products incorporated. Notably, the ALL BUNDLE stands out as the most extensive package, encompassing over 180 plugins, apps, and FX from 40+ brands. This comprehensive bundle is accessible at $24.99 monthly or $249.99 annually, with the yearly subscription offering a 17% discount compared to the month-to-month price.
Plugin Alliance offers a crossgrade discount that allows users to use their currently owned products to get a discount on other products from the same manufacturer. It is similar to an upgrade but allows you to move between different product ranges.
The crossgrade discounts are available throughout the year and are not limited to Black Friday sales. However, the amount of discount offered varies depending on the product you own and the product you want to purchase.
Plugin Alliance offers a second-hand license transfer feature that allows users to transfer their licenses to another person. This is particularly useful if you buy an older version of a plugin and then purchase an upgrade.
The seller can transfer their license(s) to another account 30 days after purchasing your license. To transfer a license, they need the email of the account they want to transfer their license(s) to (the buyer’s account email) and the fee to activate the plugin is $20 per license, and has to be paid by the buyer. It’s important to note that you cannot transfer inactive licenses, licenses you have received within the last 30 days, free licenses, or licenses that require a fee (are not activated yet). If you have a license for multiple plugin versions, those licenses cannot be transferred separately.
Plugin Alliance also charges a $20 license transfer fee if you transfer a license that you own from yourself to yourself with a 2nd PA email account.
It is always recommended to purchase from reputable sources: we recommend purchasing second-hand Plugin Alliance licenses from KVR Marketplace or KnobCloud.
Plugin Alliance offers educational discounts to students and teachers. These discounts are set up as subscription bundles, and there are no additional discounts besides the bundles at the set price per month/year. To benefit from these discounts, you need to provide educational proof that will be subject to acceptance.
How to prepare for Plugin Alliance Black Friday Sale?
- Start saving your cash now. The amount of discounts on music software, instruments & sample packs on Black Friday is crazy. To get the most bang for your buck start putting aside a bit each month, so you have some to play with when those juicy deals drop.
- Make a wishlist – Know what Plugin Alliance plugins you want before Black Friday. It helps you skip irrelevant deals.
- Identify needs and set goals – Focus on Plugin Alliance plugins you’ll actually use. Don’t waste money on software that’ll sit unused. Think about your music projects for the next year. Pick plugins that help you achieve those aims. Older versions might be cheaper.
- Sign up for mailing lists and alerts. Get one of your promo emails and sign up to lists (like ours), so you can get updates straight to your inbox!
- Bookmark this page. We update this hourly during the Black Friday period, and you’ll get all the most up-to-date deals by doing so.
- Make sure to join other communities. Places like Reddit and Facebook can be great places to find more information about these deals and stay informed.
- Create a Plugin Boutique account to make use of the freebies & get the best plugin deals. Having an account on Plugin Boutique is a must throughout the holiday sale period because they offer some fantastic bonuses for signing up. Like further discounts through tokens and cashback: If you’re gonna be buying a lot through the Black Friday period, these bonuses will all add up. Plus After Black Friday, you’ll also get a tonne of benefits for being a Plugin Boutique member. They offer free downloads every month, cash back 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.
If I buy any of the Plugin Alliance plugins now and buy a bundle including it later, will the bundle be the same price? Or will it account for my already owning one of the plugins in the bundle?
If you purchase a Plugin Alliance plugin now and later buy a bundle that includes it, you most likely will receive a discount code via email. For example, Plugin Alliance clients have received a “HEAVY HITTER” discount code for the Mega Bundle based on how many full licences they own.
Did Plugin Alliance Have A Black Friday Sale Last Year?
Yes, they offered a Mega Sale with discounts of up to 90% on 150 plugins.
