Best Waves Bundles to Get on Black Friday

It’s the holiday season and the sales and discounts are starting to come in. You can find deals on gear and equipment everywhere on Amazon and Sweetwater. But do not forget some of the best deals for engineers and producers… PLUGINS. Every year Waves pushes prices lower than ever and makes it so easy to get a hold of single plugins and bundles that you have wanted all year. Or perhaps you’re looking to buy some as a gift. Either way now is the time to buy Waves Bundles. 

Compatibility – System Requirements

Every one of these plugins and bundles require the same power and version of your computer. I made sure to put a copy of the requirements multiple times throughout this list to make sure everyone knows if their computer is up to date. 

DAW Compatibility

Waves is one of the biggest names for digital audio. They work with engineers and musicians all over the world to create new and exciting products for everyone to use. Every major DAW is compatible with them. Let’s be honest, if you make a DAW that is not compatible with Waves, what’s the point?

Frequency of Use

When you go to buy bundles, you do want to take into account what plugins are included. Will there be plugins that you are going to use regularly? The first plugin I ever purchased was a bundle from Waves. There were a few that I had used previously and knew that I wanted, but there were even more that I had never used or seen before. This gave me the chance to try out new editing methods and expand my sounds. So even if you don’t think you will be using them immediately, take the time to learn about any plugins you get in a bundle. 

Skill Level

One of my favorite things about Waves as a company is that they want you to know how to use your plugins. You can easily find tutorials and walkthroughs of what the plugins do and how to use them. There is also such a dedicated fanbase that if Waves doesn’t have a video with the info you need, someone else on YouTube probably does. 

Best Waves Plugin Bundles

We pulled together a list of some of the best plugin bundles that Waves has to offer. We separated it into 3 different sections for you.

Best Signature Series Bundles

Chris Lord-Alge Signature Series – $79.99

The Chris Lord_Alge Series are some of the most sought-after plugin suites that Waves has to offer. He is known for his fantastic work with names like Green Day, Carrie Underwood, Eric Clapton, Rob Zombie, and many more.  With CLA’s creative force behind it all, this bundle contains 6 plugins that are each built for a different instrument including Bass, Drums, Guitars.

Manny Marroquin Signature Series – $79.99

Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Lana Del Rey are just a few names that have relied on Manny Marroquin to give them the sound they needed. Working with Waves, they designed these plugins based around his own workflow and what he likes to use. You get 6 plugins that are Delay, Reverb (a personal favorite), Distortion, EQ, Tone Shaper, and the Triple D (DeBoxy, DeHarsher, and DeEsser).

Best Analog Modeled Bundles

CLA Classic Compressors – $89.99

This is another package made with the help of Chris Lord-Alge. These 3 compressors are modeled after some of the best compressors in the history of music production. I have every one of these compressors and have my own favorite uses for them. I always use at least 2 out of the 3 in each session. There is the 2A, modeled after the Teletronix LA-2A, the 76, modeled after the Universal Audio 1176, and the 3A, modeled after the Universal Audio LA-3A.

The Abbey Road collection is a catalog of plugins based on the actual equipment in the Abbey Road Studio. Work with the iconic sounds that built the Beatles, Abba Sam Smith, Amy Winehouse, and even film scores for some of the best and most recognizable soundtracks ever including The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Harry Potter. One of my favorite plugins are in this package, the Abbey Road Saturator.
