If you produce music at home, then you'll undoubtedly have found yourself down a YouTube rabbit hole at 2am, watching the greatest engineers and mixers produce radio-ready tracks in a matter of minutes. Now, this can get a little disheartening; not only do your tracks not come together as quickly as theirs, but you most likely don't have access to the stockpile of plugins they do - and even if you could bag all that software, it would cost you a small fortune! Well, Thomann may not be able to help you mix any quicker, but they can help with the plugin situation, as right now, you can bag up to 75% off popular plugins from Air Music, EastWest, Polyverse and more (opens in new tab) in this epic software sale.
This sale sees the prices slashed on some of the most sought-after plugins from the biggest names in the VST game. Are you looking to seriously up the production value of your compositions? Well, there is money off both Project Sam's Orchestral Essentials 1 (opens in new tab) and EastWest's Symphonic Orchestra Platinum (opens in new tab). With these insanely powerful plugins, you can easily - and quickly - create vast sonic soundscapes worthy of the big screen - all while saving a little cash in the process.
Okay, maybe full orchestras aren't your thing but don't worry, there's more on offer. For those seeking realistic, hard-hitting drums, there is not much better than EastWest's PRODrummer 2 (opens in new tab), which is now down to only £68, pair this with the insanely affordable AIR Music Technology Hybrid 3 (opens in new tab) at only £24.90 and you have a great starting point for a new tune!
