Holiday Sales (2012)

Black Friday/Cyber Monday wasn’t your only opportunity to take advantage of some awesome deals. Whether it’s the holidays or the countdown to the New Year, deals start popping up out of the woodwork. There are already a bunch in available in the lead up to 2013. Here’s a run-down of what we’ve seen so far…

Boom Library

…is running their “Advent Calendar” once again. There’s something different everyday. So far they’ve given away their Flamable Liquid library, a discount on their Cinematic Trailers library, and there have been a few relating to their brand new Historical Firearms library. Some of the deals are still going, others have yet to be announced. Definitely worth keeping an eye on.

The sound of historical battefields was loud and dominated by the explosive charges of smoky muzzle-loaders, carbines, muskets and rifles. HISTORICAL FIREARMS brings you the exact sound of these old-fashioned weapons. Loud, deadly, uncompromising and from the times where no one even thought about things like silencers or magazines.

Chuck Russom

…has extended the sale on his truly excellent effects libraries until the end of the year. Some are discounted by as muc as 50%. If you’re on his mailing list, you probably received an e-mail that contains some additional discount codes that you can use in addition to the sale. If you’re not on his mailing list, well…see what you just missed. ;) By popular demand, my Black Friday sale has been extended until the end of the year (or, I guess when the Mayan calendar ends, if you’re into that doomsday stuff)
