    I used to drool for waves plugs till they went on sale, when the gold bundle first went on sale i jumped at it not knowing that would be the first of many ever so slightly brand killing sales. I feel the same for plugin-alliance. Agreed i am sure their sales numbers must be off the charts but also both brands have taken a hit to some degree.

    The ask is what brand took the biggest hit in order to offer the best deals?

    Plugin Alliance, no doubt about it. It's the only subscription model I've purchased and I'm totally anti-subscription guy.
    And their plugins are top of the line :)

    Right now I'd have to say Plugin-Alliance also but I'm open to bribes.

    There are no deals with the two manufacturers. Only excessive moon prices and short-term normal prices.

    I'd say Plugin Alliance is the best deal. $25 a month for their entire catalog. What a deal. They have some really really great stuff. Them, Airwindows (so slept on), and a few things from other companies are all I use. And it's only $25 a month!!!

    waves is quantity over quality but they are permanently "on sale" its just a business strategy, plugin alliance is nice but way more expensive so you have to use their subscription... pick your poison

    Plugin Alliance. Because there's no Waves Update Plan fuckery. And once you have certain plugins you can get special offers of similar plugins from within your "manage your plugins" section.

    Currently you can get BX SSL G channel for 29,99.

    If you only buy the Plugin Alliance plugins when they are on sale,they are not that expensive.Their latest plugins are pricey during some months but if you're patient you'll get them for ~30$.Personnally I'm against subscription plans.Yesterday I got the Lindell TE-100 EQ for 10€ with my 20$ voucher!Crazy deal.Awesome EQ for boosting mediums.

    Interesting question because I'm interested if Waves could provide the same results in time compared to what PA did (let's say 2-3 years). Here's an example to show what I mean:
    Brings me to another point, I still can't believe that people buy PA tools for the full price, especially the expensive ones!
    Can't judge about the subscription though because I don't want it. Already have all the tools I need.

    Yes! Make sure you have the licenses separate. USB for legit one and hard drive for the "other".

    One thing about PA, if you get into its mega Bundle Yearly Plan which is $24.99 per month or $249 for the whole year. If you pay in full, you receive right away a voucher for $249. If you pay monthly, after 12 payments you will receive the $249 voucher. This is as sweet a deal as there is.

    I see they have a deal at the moment where if you sign up you get 6 free plugins. Not sure if there are restrictions but what would be your choice for those 6 plugins?

    *EDIT never mind, you cant choose them, they are pre-bundled

    Not useless, but definitely more of the kind " experimental sounddesign"

    More of the kind "hey, look at me I make plugins without GUIs which nobody needs besides that one guy on patreon who asked for it" :wink:

    But I like some of his Tape plugins.
