Waves will be releasing a brand new plugin for PC and Mac on Black Friday. The plugin will be delivered as a free download to all users who sign up for the freebie on the Waves website.
It has become somewhat of a tradition for Waves to give away a freebie on Black Friday every year. Unless I’m mistaken, it all started when the company offered the OneKnob Louder plugin as an exclusive Black Friday freebie back in 2012. They followed it up with Renaissance Bass in 2013 and OneKnob Pumper the year after. At that point, it became obvious that Waves freebies on Black Friday are here to stay, so we had the chance to grab a free copy of TrueVerb in 2015 and SuperTap in 2016.
What’s interesting, though, is that Waves are claiming to release a brand new free plugin this year. Instead of offering an older product as a free download for a limited time, which was the case with TrueVerb and SuperTap, this year we will see a completely new offering. Chances are that it will also be free for a limited time and then converted into a paid plugin, as was the case with OneKnob Louder ($29) back in 2012.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any additional info about the plugin except for the fact that it will be released on Friday this week. The signup page doesn’t offer any hints, nor does the teaser video posted on Waves’ official YouTube Channel (unless the forthcoming plugin is some sort of software designed to make audio waveforms jump out of the DAW and then push the monitor off the table – not quite sure if I’d download that). We will update this article as soon as the offer goes live on Black Friday and also release a test/demo of the plugin. If you sign up now, you will probably receive the installer (via email) as soon as Waves launches the plugin.
Do you guys have any predictions on what the plugin might be? Perhaps a new addition to the OneKnob product series, or something completely new and different? We’d love to hear your thoughts about this – feel free to post them in the comments section below!
