Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
In possibly the biggest value edition of Free Software Friday we present the PA Soundwide Welcome Bundle; a limited time offer (expires April 26th, 2022) that nets you almost $600 worth of free plugins.
Supergroups are common in music, but less so amongst software developers. That hasn't stopped Native Instruments, iZotope, Plugin Alliance and Brainworx joining forces as Soundwide. To celebrate their formation, we have this insane free bundle of plugins. Let's take a look at what's included.
Within the welcome bundle you'll free copies of:
- Black Box Analog Design HG-2 (Saturation)
- Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor
- Ampeg SVT-VR Classic (Bass Amp)
- Brainworx bx_masterdesk (Mastering)
- Brainworx bx_oberhausen (Soft synth)
- Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC (Digital studio console)
In addition to these six plugins, you can also claim free copies of iZotope's Neutron Elements and Native Instruments' ETHEREAL EARTH. Elements is a fantastic mixing tool, while ETHEREAL EARTH provides the foundations some out of this world soundscapes.
Regardless of what stage you are in music production, there's something for everyone in this bundle and we can't recommend taking advantage of it enough, especially if you're just starting out.
The PA Soundwide Welcome Bundle is available for free for Windows and macOS and can be downloaded for free here or using the link below. Accounts with Plugin Alliance, iZotope and Native Instruments are needed to claim the respective plugins.
