Yep, you read that right, Waves is currently offering silly discounts on some of its most popular and best-selling plugins and bundles. 

The plugin manufacturer has become one of the biggest on the planet since launching their first piece of software in 1992. Ever since, they’ve been providing pro musicians and bedroom producers alike with quality analogue hardware emulators and unique processors and effects.

Waves’ monster sale is underway and it could be your chance to load up on some new software and supercharge your production.

Deals include $100 off the awesome new Abbey Road Studios 3 and $130 off Waves Tune Real-Time tuning for vocalists. Elsewhere, you can enjoy a massive $500 off the plugin stacked Gold bundle or bag the SSL 4000 Collection for just $299 (that's $500 off the original price).

These prices not low enough for you? If you’re shopping for solo plugins, buy two and get a further 25% off the second one, buy 5 and get 30% of the third and fifth, or get 35% off your sixth plugin and beyond.

We don't know how long this sale will last, and prices are changing quickly (going up and down), so we've dug deep and selected some highlight...
