Black Friday // Splashing Out

So what's everyone splashing out on this Black Friday?
Me? I've gone for SoundToys Little Plate ($29) and Eventide SP2016 Reverb ($79)...

I grabbed the Filterfreak from there

I was going to get the Softube American Class A but they're now adding 20% sales tax to their download license sales which makes the discount worth half of what it was.

This whole VAT on downloads thing is a complete joke.

I'm done shopping.

I went a bit crazy as this was the first time in like 2 years that I could properly treat myself - feels good!
Unfortunately, very little of it was on sale

2 x Golden Age Project Comp 554 (not on sale, but ex-demo direct from GAP so great deal)
2 x Klark Teknik EQP-KT pultec clones (not on sale but stupidly cheap anyway)
Studio One upgrade to 4.1 on sale
Soundtoys FreakFilter on sale

Only the software is useable, as the 500R8 that's going to house the comps won't arrive until Jan and the EQP-KTs are on back order until end of December

I decided therefore to go all in and got an Xbox One S with....

Red Dead Redemption 2 - what a game! I got rid of my Xbox 360 6 years ago and this game was the only reason I bought one now - love RDR

I did the Waves one, it was great. I got 2 free plugins.

In total:
Abbey Road Chambers
Abbey Road TG Mastering Console
F6 Equalizer
RVox
H Delay

all for a pretty low price (wish I would have waited a day and gone to Plugin Discounts to save even more)

I also got 2 Softube ones
But they haven't emailed the codes yet
so I don't know if I'm getting both since one was controversial (Summit Grand Channel for $19)

So far remo ambassador snare pack and evans eq3 clear batter for my kick. Prices were great on sweetwater. Also looking on Alto Music | AltoMusic.com | (844) 248-3216 they are having 15% off on almost everything. I had just picked up a pair of soyuz su-013's but now I'm itching for something to put in the rack. Perhaps a second WA76 or I may pull the trigger and go for a Distressor.

Up until now, I didn't own any Izotope plugins... I bought 2 bundles, the creative bundle and the Music Production Suite 2 bundle....All together it was a lot of plugins -
Neutron 2 Advanced
Ozone 8 Advanced
VocalSynth 2
Nectar 3
RX7 standard
Insight 2
Iris 2
Trash 2 Expanded
BreakTweaker Expanded
Stutter Edit
DDLY
Mobius Filter

Sweetwater currently has the same Black Friday sale as the Izotope site but I was able to use my Sweetwater credit card with their current promotion 48 months 0% financing....So $13/month for the Music Production Suite bundle and $6/month for the Creative bundle....Obviously I'll be able to throw significantly more on the monthly but 0% is nice....

I also updated Melodyne 3 studio to 4 studio for $50.....The best part is everything installed on my 10.8.5 OS with PT10HD....moon

I bought a new sustain pedal for my old Wurlitzer from Vintage Vibe. It was a great deal and I’ve been needing one for a while.
