Regroover Essential (sampler plugin by accusonus, 90% off, $9.99) – Create new sounds from old ones, or simply adjust the volume of individual elements inside a loop. Regroover uses Artificial-Intelligence to extract layers from within your previously recorded beats and samples.

VirtualCZ (synth plugin by Plugin Boutique, 83% off, $13) is a virtual plugin inspired by an iconic series of digital synthesizers made in the 1980s. As with its hardware inspiration, VirtualCZ uses Phase Distortion, which is similar to FM Synthesis but easier to program. Also, it has big stereo unison sounds – great for modern synth stabs, familiar ADSR envelopes, and 200 quality presets featuring both retro and modern sounds.
Xpand!2 (virtual instrument plugin by AIR Music Technology, 90% off, $4.99) – Xpand!2 is a multitimbral workstation offering four active sound slots, or parts, per patch. Each part is provided with its own MIDI channel, Note Range (Zone), Mix, Arpeggiation, Modulation, and Effects settings—an excellent method for creating individual parts. Xpand!2 comes with a huge library of bread & butter sounds and is a must-have to all producers.
Polygon 2.0 (sampler plugin by Glitchmachines, 87% off, $10) is a hybrid sampler plugin designed to facilitate the creation of mind-bending composite sound effects and unusual instrument patches. Polygon 2.0 features a fully re-designed scalable user interface and we have completely revamped nearly every aspect of the plugin.

Production is here to make sure that you complete that scale, find that fitting chord and make progressions that are out of this world with the Ultimate MIDI Bundle.
CA2600 Synthesizer (virtual synth by Cherry Audio, 35% off, $25) – Cherry Audio CA2600 Synthesizer is a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600 synthesizer. Every aspect of the original, from the quirky oscillator waves to the powerful ladder filter, to the external audio input and preamp section was modeled with tremendous precision.
Though it features similar functionality, it’s been thoughtfully updated for increased flexibility – with semi-normalled patch cabling, integrated effects, and no hidden windows or menus in the audio path, CA2600 delivers an unprecedented hands-on, “everything right in front of you, right now!” vintage synthesis experience like no other.
NEVO (limiter plugin by SoundSpot, 88% off, $19.90) features a combination of a 16-band soft clipper and a single-band hard clipper, along with multiple coloration settings, a transient shaper, and a final clip wall limiter. All of these features have been arranged into a specific signal flow which has been meticulously designed and tested so you can get the very best sound from your instruments, groups, mixes, and masters.
Valves (saturation plugin by AudioThing, 84% off, $9) – Valves is a vintage valve emulation plugin with a multimode resonant filter and cabinet/EQ section. The valve section is modeled after classic vintage tubes, with added grit and custom gain control.
The filter section is modeled after a classic ladder filter (2-pole or 4-pole) with low pass, high pass, bandpass and notch modes. The cabinet/EQ section features a selection of modeled cabinets with classic bass and treble EQ controls.
