Melodyne is half-off at Best Service. If you've ever had to deal with a pitchy singer, Melodyne is an indispensable tool to have in your kit. For those unfamiliar with how it works, this software not only allows you to correct pitch as much or as little as you like, it will also show you every instance of where a vocal track is off the note and how much it's off.

The "Editor" version will even allow you to change a note within a guitar chord via "Direct Note Access" (various Melodyne versions explained here) It was amazing technology when it first came out and it's still amazing. I've tried almost all the other usual suspects with the exception of Revoice Pro, and I've found that while Melodyne may take a bit longer to use, the results are almost always superior to the Waves and Antares pitch correction software.

FYI - the Best Service website may look sketchy to some but it's absolutely legit. I've been buying from them for years, they nearly always have the best price, and there's no difference in buying from them or from the better known online shops or even from the plugin developers. In other words, they're not selling cracked or gray market versions of anything.

More deals at Best Service...

Ozone 9 Standard for $185.47
or if you have any Izotope product, you can buy the Ozone 9 Standard crossgrade for $138.87z
It looks like you can get a free reverb with either of those purchases.

I can second Jimís recommendation. I just recently scored EZdrummer 2 plus a ton of EZX exanders for way cheaper than anywhere else.

I find that Plugin Discounts generally has the best prices. You have to create a free login to see the prices. For instance, they have Ozone 9 Standard for $169 now.
https://plugindiscounts.com/product/izotope-ozone-9/

I have bought a lot of plugins from them in the past. Lately, I have been relying on Plugin Alliance.

I haven't used 'Best Service', but their pricing is up and down - Sweetwater is $29 more for Melodyne Editor, but Melodyne Assistant is $23 cheaper at Sweetwater. Last year I found it was cheaper at one point to buy the 'Essential' version', then the upgrade, than buying the better version to start with.

Acustica Audio has huge sales around this time of year. They're the best sounding plugins on the planet (in my opinion) but require a very fast computer.

AudioThing has Black Friday sales prices on all of their products:

https://www.audiothing.net/plugins/?...eid=dc59953853

I have their free Filterjam effect (down near the bottom of that page) and I use it for various lo-fi and ambient effects.

Kush Audio just posted their BF sale - picking up the Clariphonic myself. I had the hardware version and it was amazing.
