After a year full of giveaways on BPB, it’s time for the grand finale. One final giveaway of 2014 to rule them all! I am very happy to present BPB Christmas Giveaway 2014 with 35 amazing prizes for 35 lucky BPB readers!
I have to say that, although I really enjoy organizing giveaways for you guys and girls, I always feel a bit sour in the end because only a couple of entrants can win a prize and the others are left empty-handed. That’s why I’ve decided to take things to the extreme this Christmas, organizing a giveaway with 35 winners. It will be a HUGE task to organize and manage, but hey… What should Santa say then?

Image Line is providing one FL Studio Producer Edition license (download version). The Producer edition of FL Studio is a complete music studio in-the-box and an invaluable tool for audio recording, mixing and post-production.
Numerous built-in tools such as the Edison Wave Editor and the amazing Patcher modular environment are partly the reason why FL Studio is often regarded as one of the most powerful digital audio workstations out there. With the new FL Studio 12 right around the corner (and due to the fact that the users get lifetime free updates on their version of the software), it’s definitely an exciting time to become a part of the FL Studio universe.
Image Line is currently running a huge Christmas sale, offering 25-50% off their products (this does not include product bundles). The sale ends on January 15th and you can get the discount codes and other detailed info about the offer on this page.
U-He is kindly providing one copy of their brand new Hive virtual synthesizer. Featuring a switchable user interface and a sound engine which is fully optimized for ultra low CPU usage, Hive is designed as a flexible workhorse synthesizer for electronic music production with impeccable sound quality which we’re so used to getting from U-He.
Continuing the legacy of legendary virtual instruments like Zebra and Diva, the brand new Hive synthesizer is aiming to become the ultimate software instrument for dance music production. It packs tons of raw synthesis firepower in a streamlined user interface which is easy to use and a joy to experiment with.
You can currently download the public beta version of Hive via KVR Audio and use it for free until January 31st, 2015. During this period, you can also pre-order Hive and grab it for $99 instead of the regular $149 price which will become effective since February 2015.
MuTools is giving away one MUX Modular 6 license. Is it an instrument? Is it an effect? Is it a plugin host? A plugin host inside a plugin host? MUX Modular 6 is all of that and so much more. It is a unique modular environment which you can load up in your DAW and basically turn it into a fully modular virtual studio.
MUX is the core of MuLab, a digital audio workstation which is well known for its fully modular architecture. A couple of years ago, MUX Modular Plug-In was released as a separate product, offering a way to turn any host application into a modular environment. MUX Modular 6 comes with a full range of audio and MIDI processing devices and it is also capable of loading other plugins and patching them together like you would do in a real world studio. With MUX Modular 6, you can connect your favorite VST plugins into powerful FX chains, monstrous modular synthesizers and anything else you can think of. All of that in your digital audio workstation of choice!
MuLab is currently running a holiday sale, offering 15-20% discounts on their products. You will find more info about the available products and all of the discounted prices in their online shop.
Sugar Bytes are providing one free copy of their new Looperator loop mangling toolkit. Looperator is a multi-FX plugin on steroids, chopping up the audio signal on the input into 16 steps and assigning each slice to one FX rack which can be processed and treated individually.
The slices can be re-arranged and processed with a full range of built-in effects and sound mangling tools. Looperator can take any boring piece of audio and turn it into something completely new with the use of time-stretching, distortion, vinyl emulation, reverb, delay, chaos synthesis, an entire range of different filters and a variety of other sound processing tools.
Sugar Bytes are currently running a huge Christmas sale offering an insane 50% discount on almost all of their products and a 25% discount on their complete product bundle. You can take a look at the discounted prices in their online shop.
Cableguys are kindly providing one free copy of their flagship Curve 2.5 virtual synthesizer. Curve 2.5 is an impressive workhorse synthesizer based around the unique custom waveform editor which is the signature feature of all Cableguys products.
The waveform editor can be used to create your own custom oscillator waveforms, custom LFO shapes and triggered envelopes. The latest version of the plugin also includes the brand new Sallen-Key filter types, along with the previously available filter models. Obviously, it’s a synth tweaker’s dream come true. But if you prefer using presets, you’ll definitely appreciate the fact that Curve 2.5 also features a cloud preset library which you can use to download the patches which have been shared by the other users from around the globe.
Cableguys are running a 20% off sale on their complete bundle and 33% off Curve 2.5 until December 3oth, 2014. Take a look at the discounted prices on their official website.
Brunsandspork are providing 3 free copies of their Grooove virtual drum machine. Grooove is based on a rather unique sound engine which allows the user to freely set two completely different states for each drum pad, one state for minimum velocity and one for maximum velocity. The instrument will then calculate all of the sounds in between the two extreme settings, making it possible to fully control the drums via velocity of the MIDI notes on the input.
Groove features 128 drum pads (each capable of holding up to two drum sounds) and 11 velocity controlled parameters per drum pad. The instrument is bundled with over 500 unique drum samples from over 30 vintage drum machines. It works in standalone mode and is also compatible with all VST/AU plugin hosts on Windows and Mac OS.
AudioThing is kindly donating three free copies of their brand new miniBIT virtual instrument. miniBIT is an interesting software synthesizer inspired by the retro sounds of various video game consoles and home computers of the Eighties.
Bringing back the 8-bit nostalgia, miniBIT is designed for creating those classic video game sounds which you hear in various NES and Commodore 64 game soundtracks. Featuring 12 beautifully gritty waveforms, a 2-pole LP filter and a preset randomizer, this latest offering from AudioThing is a great way to bring the old video game sounds back to life.
AudioThing is currently running a 20% discount on all of their products and they are also giving away additional free copies of miniBIT to their email subscribers. Use the coupon code “xmas14” at check out in their online store to apply a 20% discount to your purchase.
Tokyo Dawn Records have kindly provided one free TDR Kotelnikov GE license. TDR Kotelnikov GE is the so called Gentleman’s Edition of their new TDR Kotelnikov compressor effect which is designed as the ultimate transparent dynamics processor for use on the master buss.
The developer describes this compressor as being “proudly digital”, meaning that it doesn’t try to copy any of the existing analog compressor designs and instead uses all of the advantages of digital audio processing to provide maximum “stealth” for mastering and mixing use. If you’re looking for a natural sounding and transparent compressor for use on the stereo buss, then TDR Kotelnikov GE is definitely the way to go!
I’ve used the basic edition of TDR Kotelnikov on a couple of recent projects and it is incredibly musical, managing to tame the dynamics of a stereo bus without any obvious compression artifacts. You can download the basic edition of the product for free. The Gentleman’s Edition of TDR Kotelnikov adds various useful features such as the frequency dependent ratio function and equal loudness output gain trimming, among others.
Audio Assault is giving away one free copy of their Grind Machine virtual guitar amplifier. Packing 12 different high-gain amplifier models and 22 carefully modeled guitar cabinet emulations, Grind Machine provides a powerful and versatile toolbox of guitar sounds for use in metal and hard rock.
The amplifier and cabinet emulations can be used together, however the cabinet module can also be turned off if you prefer using convolution. Grind Machine also includes a noise gate and a pair of filters, along with a neat little virtual guitar pedal called Djent Box. The guitar pedal emulation is designed to enhance the sound of your guitar at extremely low tune settings.
Audio Assault has recently expanded their product arsenal with a couple of interesting mixing tools which you can find in their online store. They have also developed the free FilterCrusher effect which is available as a free download right here on BPB!
