In a return to form, I’ve brought back my monthly round-up of great deals on synth gear, such as virtual synths, plug-ins, samples, iOS apps, and more. This list is updated all during August, until the next month when a new list is started. Remember everything has an expiration date, and some offers are for existing users with an account from the respective brand/company/product.

Nobody has paid to be on this list, nor can they, and please let me know of any deals I’ve missed! I’m on a LOT of mailing lists from owning stuff from almost everyone, but sometimes I miss stuff.

(Alphabetical order, generally.)
