    Cableguys does look intriguing. I generally don't buy expensive plugins, but every once in a while I find affordable plugins that I think are great: Toneboosters is maybe the pauper's Fabfilter, and last year I discovered Klevgrand, Polyverse/Infected Mushroom and Audiority, all of whom make quality plugs with righteous CP. Cableguys may well be next to explore more fully.

    I have every virtual instrument I need, but for holiday sales I would still like to get Embertone's Mountain Dulcimer, but not for anything close to $99. But if it were to go half price or something...

    For me its CH Ensemble Strings. I remain disappointed that, as an owner of all four solo string libraries, I only qualify for a €50 discount (the same as if I had bought only one solo library) from the full price of €399. Until there's some kind of offer I have no option but to get my "fix" every now and then from Try-Sound sessions (notwithstanding the latency/buffering issues and chirping) :sad:

    Do you think Spitfire will put BDT on sale Black Friday or is it too recent?

    with the recent 2 for 1 (CH Solo EX Complete) from BS, the $50 discount is a great deal.

    may wait for another 2fer and pick up CH ES - perhaps labor day.

    Priority 1:
    * Embertone - Upcoming solo Cello (hope they´ll have it done by then)
    * Spitfire - Percussion Redux (priority for me)
    * Audioease - Altiverb 7

    Priority 2:
    * OT - Symphonic Sphere
    * Spitfire - Symphony Brass / Winds or OT Brass / Winds (I only would consider to go OT if there is a sale. If not I guess SF is the same quality - its just that it is wet which can be a problem)

    Priority 3:
    * NI Komplete Kontrol S88
    * Blackmagic Multidock V2 or G-Technology G-Speed Shuttle or Akitio Thunder 2 Quad (just something to permanently solve my thunderbolt 2 SSD situation...)

    i'm thinking Hollywood Orchestra Diamond when EW does their blowout this year.

    checked out some Diamond Strings demos again - pretty nice and deep.

    i think it was $499 on sale last new year for the Orch. Diamond.

    Strings Diamond $199 on sale:

    • 5 mic positions plus divisi spot mics
      - 16 1st Violins (9/7 divisi mode)
      - 14 2nd Violins (8/6 divisi mode)
      - 10 Violas (6/4 divisi mode)
      - 10 Cellos (6/4 divisi mode)
      - 7 Basses (4/3 divisi mode)

    I'm running out of new things to buy! But I'm hoping for:-

    Sonokinetic Largo and Noir, although they may be in the 12 days of Christmas promo instead
    Sonoscore The Orchestra
    Some Boom Library stuff
    Universal Audio Lexicon 480L (a man can dream...)

    The Spitfire Everything Bundle going on sale would be a nice touch.

    What did Spitfire do for Black Friday last year? I read through the thread and it sounds like they did some discounts on bundles, and some raffle (tombola). Then the wish list thing on Xmas.

    I'm thinking post-apocolyptic... as in this may very well be the last year for developers to beat the holiday rush... so I'm expecting virtually everything to be basement bargains... if not I'll just buy a couple more solar cells and get the old lady another 1,000 round of 30.06.

    Does anyone remember what the price was for the Freyja+Wotan bundle last year? There's a sale right now (until 15th if I remember correctly) and I was wondering whether I should wait or make my wallet cry now... :rolleyes:

    EDIT: No sale apparently, was fooled by my upgrade prices... :rofl:

    Personally I am hoping for a cheaper price on the Forzo/Novo bundle (say ~$600), or at the very least 50% off Novo.

    Not going to buy it until then i don't think. I know Forzo will likely only go back to its intro price or slightly less on black friday as it is so new but fingers crossed for the best deal so far on Novo, or an epic bundle deal!
