Default Plugin Alliance Pick Pack

Plugin Alliance has started something new (just seen it today) called 'Pick Pack'. Apparently you pick 10 plugins and pay $29 per month for 29 months. I know nothing else about it and there's nothing else about it on the PIA site. Sounds good if you want/need to build up your PIA arsenal but like a lot of people here I already have most of what I need with just a couple of pieces I want to grab like the Millenia NSEQ and the bx_opto compressor.

Haven't received any emails this week from them on anything as to what's on sale this weekend or anything else. The last email I got was regarding last weekend's sale. Got a $35 voucher to use.

I know Dirk sent out an email beginning of this year talking about new things happening on the site and possibly new developers. Something I would like to see is a good mastering limiter; I tried the bx_XL V2 and didn't really like the sound and I really don't need m/s for this. I know FabFilter has their limiter but I'd like to see something in the PIA stable.

That's kinda cool. Would be interesting if you could use your voucher every month to pay the $29

Well, first of its not that cheap - saving about 67% is not much for $320 plugin now days.
Second I own most of their top priced plugins. But for instance they officially said that the bug fixing for DSM v2 (making automations unusable) is not their 1st priority, and probably I might have a discount for the v3 when (and if) it will be out. WTF?!

How do you figure that number? It's $29 per month for all 10 plugins not $29 per plugin.

Default Plugin Alliance Pick Pack

I am waiting for a big sale, I wanna get their Channel Strips E, and N

those are really good but pricy....buuuut I want to support the AAXDSP for sure.

I wouldn’t mind the Friedman Bux Betty...(since he worked it up for UAD)


Jack I got the opto for free the other day when I was looking in my Presonus account. They had a deal, the opto the maag and another one for free !!!! Nice surprise

Still haven’t fired it up in a session but I have good feelings about it

Any guitar amp from PA is going to be great, I love the red one, I'll have to get it one of these days even if it's just to use it for double tracking along with my other plexys

I tried to compile my own 10 pickpack and at the checkout it displayed: "A saving of 67% over regular price" (don't remember the final price though). It may vary depending on plugins you chose of course.

Works out at $29x29=$841 which is of course $84.1 per plugin.

This is about the going rate with sales and monthly vouchers for the big plugins $199-299 RRP. Doesn't make sense for anything under $149 IMHO.

The big thing is you get the plugins all up front, pay monthly and get to own them all in under 2.5 years.

Do I really need all the extra channels, EQs, compressors etc? Likely not. Would I like them, well of course!

Am I ready to commit to another $30 for the next 2.5 years? Not yet. For now, I'll keep demoing the products and picking up the ones I want in the sales and promotions.

All that said, it's a pretty good deal compared to the likes of Sonnox & UAD to name just two.

Stephen
