The Season of Sales
This time of year is the perfect time to look for gifts for others as well as yourself. I know of many producers and engineers who wait for this time to purchase plugins and software for the discounts that are happening. If you are looking to purchase these options as a gift, make sure you are able to connect any plugins to the correct account to make everything easier for updates in the future. Each of these websites also offers the option to purchase gift certificates so you can let the recipient decide what plugins they want to buy for themselves.
