Where can I find the best Cyber Monday plugin deals?
Loads of plugin and music software sites will be taking part in Cyber Monday for 2019, so it’s worth signing up to mailing lists of your favourite retailers to get the jump on the best deals.
Of course, if you can’t be bothered with the stress of searching through the latest deals yourself, our experts will be pulling all-nighters across the event to uncover the very best Cyber Monday plugin deals and publishing them right here.

Cyber Monday plugin deals: what to expect
The great thing is that, as plugins are downloads rather than physical products, they won’t sell out. A more realistic consideration is that some of these deals might be time-limited, so we’d recommend you don’t ponder a purchase for too long.
Discounts can range from a few pounds/dollars off a cool sample pack, to massive percentage discounts of huge swathes of music production software. Last year, Native Instruments knocked 50% off 175 of its best products, including the likes of Kontakt 6, Traktor Pro 3, Monark, Massive, Guitar Rig 5 and Reaktor 6. Other companies will offer bundle deals, too – the more you purchase, the more you save.
In its last sale, Waves knocked a staggering $3,450 off its Horizon plugin bundle, dropping it to just $549. For vintage fans, you could pick up the Abbey Road Vinyl plugin for just $49 (usually $249).
These are a silly numbers, so if you’re planning on updating your studio or adding to your collection to boost your music production set-up, it’s well worth marking your diary for Cyber Monday.
How can I prepare for Cyber Monday?
Start your wishlist now! The most sensible way to take advantage of the best Cyber Monday plugin deals is to know in advance what you’re looking for. This will make searching much easier, rather than having to trawl through loads of deals you don’t want to find the ones you do.
