If you hadn't heard, it's Cyber Monday today, the last hurrah of an exciting Black Friday weekend that's been packed with deals and discounts the likes of which we've never seen before.
For those of us who like to make music, it's the perfect time to pick up a digital wheelbarrow's worth of software for a heavily discounted price, thanks to the mind-blowing Cyber Monday plugin deals we're seeing pop up across the internet.
If you're looking for discounts, Plugin Boutique is the place to be, as they've put together top-notch deals across a variety of plugins from a who's-who of software developers, including FabFilter, Eventide, Soundtoys, Arturia, CableGuys, SSL and more.
What's really caught our eye, though, is the retailer's iZotope sale, which features discounts of up to 75% on some of the manufacturer's most popular plugins, including VocalSynth 2, Stutter Edit 2, Nectar 3 Plus, Stratus 3D, Neoverb and Ozone 10 Elements and Neutron 4 Elements.
