2012 Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals
Who says the audio community doesn’t give you opportunities to go wild on the craziest shopping days (in the U.S. at least) of the year? [ed. Seriously, does anyone actually say that?]
We’ve spotted some deals you might be interested, and we’ll continue to update this post if we find anymore. If you spot one we haven’t feel free to share by leaving a comment.
Hit the jump to see what we’ve found so far…
The Sound Effects Bible Library (Created by Ric Viers of The Detroit Chop shop and Blastwave FX) is going on sale this month. Regularly $999, it will be available at the sale price of $399. Pre-ordering at this price will net you a download link on Tuesday, November 27th. This library will no longer be available after the December 31st. So, now might be a good time to grab it. The image on the right pretty much says it all, but full details can be found here. [including a list of the types of sound effects included in the library, and a demo for you to listen to.]
Chuck Russom has made some truly killer libraries, and they’re all on sale right now. [I guess he doesn't really get the whole "Black Friday," one day, thing. ;)] He’s also got some awesome coupon codes for you big spenders:
Every product is on sale. Some products are as much as 50% off. This will be the last sale of the year (and the last for some time) so get in on it.
NEW DEALS (added November 19)
Empty Sea Audio is adding secret discount codes to their online shop on the 23rd. They’re going to be first come…or in this case, first found…first served:
When you’re done stuffing yourself full of Turkey, Tofu-rkey, Mashed Potatoes and whatever else… It’s time for the real hunt to begin! Starting Friday November 23rd, four discount codes will go live in our web shop. These discount codes are for four different levels of discounts for our Sea Monsters release. 25% OFF, 50% OFF, 75% OFF and FREE. What you will need to do is search Mark Camperell’s CREDITS for the codes. Here are some clues… The codes will each be ONE WORD from different titles in Mark’s credits. A’s, And’s, The’s, Of’s and etc… will not be used, nor will sequel numbers. The codes will be for projects that aren’t collaborative (i.e. will not be a title with an asterisk after it). There will be three lucky winners of a FREE download of Sea Monsters, five for the 75% OFF, ten for the 50% off and twenty for 25% off. Obviously quantities are limited so we will honor codes on a first come, first served basis. Miss out the FREE code but still want to grab Sea Monsters? Don’t fret, there still may be 75% OFF available, just keep trying! The codes don’t expire, but people may figure it out and all the redemptions may be used up by the time you get around to using it, so work quickly. Happy hunting!

MORE Deals (added November 20th)
Waves appears to be giving away a free plug-in on Friday this week. There’s the possibility they will have other deals this weekend as well…if you take into account the fact that they’re counting down to Black Friday on their website.
Continuing on… (added November 21st)
