SONiVOX Vocalizer Pro
The name suggests that this is a vocoder, but it is actually more than that. Yes, it can be used for vocals, but it can also be used for any other sound. You can record any sound you want into it, then Vocalizer Pro can turn that sound into something musical. It also acts as a synthesizer, giving you a choice between 16 different types of Spectral Synthesis, as well as 16 different filter configurations – alter the cutoff, resonance, envelope, and saturation.
Air Music: AIR Keyboard Collection
If you are a fan of pianos and organs, this is the collection for you. In this deal, you get 3 distinct virtual instrument packages:
- Velvet 2 – this actually combines 5 legendary 60s and 70s electric pianos into one software instrument. These are the Fender Rhodes MK I and MK II Stage Pianos, Wurlitzer 200A, Fender Rhodes Suitcase and Hohner Pianet-T.
- DB-33 – a software imitation of a Hammond B3 organ, you can sound like legends like Jimmy Smith, Stevie Winwood, and Jon Lord from Deep Purple.
- Mini Grand – there are 7 different grand piano models to choose from here, so you will be sure to get the exact piano sound you are looking for, or rather listening for.
Air Music DB-33
Although the DB-33 comes as part of the Air Keyboard Collection above, if you want to get it on its own, this is a great deal.
SONiVOX TimewARP 2600
If you are in any way into synthesizers, you have most likely heard of the ARP 2600. It is a classic analog synthesizer that was used by Jean-Michel Jarre on his early albums such as Oxygene, Equinoxe, and Magnetic Fields. Here you get a software version of this superb synthesizer, and it has even been endorsed by the inventor of the original ARP 2600. Not only that, it is actually better than the original for several reasons. It can be played via MIDI, and it has 8 note polyphony.
Air Music: AIR Creative Collection
This deal is just the same as the Air Keyboard Collection above, but instead of the Velvet 2, it has Expand!2. It is an extraordinary synthesizer and effects processor all in one. It is great for sound design, but also really good for getting a lot of classic sounds such as synth pads, synth brass, various pianos, organs, strings, drums vocals, and a lot more.
Air Music: Ignite
For people who want to quickly create great music with minimum fuss, Ignite is a user-friendly music creation tool that makes it easy for you to get your musical ideas down. It has more than 275 instruments taken from some of Air Music’s best instrument collections. Not only that, if you plug in an Ignite supported keyboard, the controls will automatically be mapped so you can just get to making music straight away. It also allows you to record up to two tracks of audio, so you can lay down some vocals and guitar on top of your electronic sounds. Considering you can get 70% off here, this is excellent value for money.
AIR Music Synth Bundle
Here you get three great software synthesizers together in one pack:
- Loom – this is a modular additive synthesizer consisting of a sound-shifting Morph Pad and 30 modules that can be edited. As if that wasn’t enough, it comes with over 350 patches created by experienced sound designers.
- Vacuum Pro with Fresh Air Expansion – this polyphonic analog synthesizer has vacuum tube modeling to capture the warm, crunchy sounds of the old classic analog synthesizers from the 70s and 80s.
- Hybrid 3 – this high-definition synthesizer combines analog synthesis with wavetable synthesis. This makes it very versatile and capable of creating many unique sounds.

Its 3 powerful oscillators have FM and noise capabilities, and it comes with 200 factory presets and 400 user programs.

Novation Bass Station
The original hardware version of Novation’s Bass Station was released in 1993 and went on to define the sound of many popular dance songs. Here it has been faithfully recreated in digital software form, so you can get access to all those great classic Bass Station sounds all from within your computer. The classic sawtooth and square waveforms have been carefully modeled to preserve their town, and the classic ladder 12/24 dB low-pass filter. Buying it in software form is a lot cheaper than buying the physical hardware synth, and now with 50% off you can get it even cheaper!

Rob Papen Predator
This is very much a modern synthesizer, perfect for styles like house and trance, thanks to the fat synth sounds and percussive style sounds. You may even find this ends up being your main “go to” synth for modern music production.
As well as the awesome modern sounds, it also has a very easy to use interface. Nearly all of the synth’s controls are right there on the screen, which means you can quickly and easily change and manipulate your sounds on the fly.
