Last week, Waves Audio launched a signup page for their Black Friday 2019 freebie. We had no idea about what they’ll be releasing for free this year, apart from the fact that it was going to be a completely new product. Well, we have the answer now. The brand new Waves Berzerk plugin is free only today!
Berzerk features ten original distortion algorithms for creative sound design. The interface provides direct access to control parameters like advanced feedback, pitch, dynamics, sidechaining, and M/S adjustments. The Temperature knob is used as a a macro control to set overall amount of coloration and saturation that is applied to the signal. Use the Berzerk button to randomize the controls and see what kind of crazy distortion sound you’ll get from the plugin. The plugin also supports internal and external sidechaining.
To help new users get started with the plugin, Berzerk comes with a set of presets designed by Grammy-winning mixing engineers Lu Diaz, Dave Pensado, and others. Berzerk is compatible with all VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin hosts on PC and Mac.
Waves Audio is currently running a massive Black Friday sale. Spend $50 to get a free plugin or spend $100 in total to get two additional plugins completely free of charge.
You can download Waves Berzerk from the product page linked below. If you previously signed up for the Waves Audio Black Friday freebie, you should receive the activation key via email. Btw, Waves released another freebie on Cyber Monday last year, so stay tuned. We might some something similar happening this year!

I was really excited about this giveaway…until I downloaded and got an error message to the effect of “Not compatible with Windows 8.1” Lame…
I’m still waiting on the email
It just arrived in my inbox. It was a long wait, indeed!
Yep. Win10 only as far as Windows goes. Oh well.
Actually, it’s still possible to install on earlier Win systems. You simply need to push continue, instead of abort. I just installed it on Win 7.
What! I’m on Win 7. That’s the first VST I hear about that needs Win 10.
when installing a free plug-in takes 24 minutes..
I just received my code. Taking it for a spin later today. What caused the installation to last that long? Does it require online activation or was it something else?
The plugin is good…but their new Installer removed my previously installed Super Tap Free, and it’s not available in My Products downloads. And yes installation is very long – Syncing 67% …
That sucks, I still haven’t tried the new installer. I just received my Berzerk code. Hopefully, the installation won’t mess up my previous installs. :/
I use two different emails and never arrived.
Berzerk is still free to download, web page now says free during Black Friday “weekend”. I had pre-signed up to get it but I only got an email after signing up again on Black Friday and it took about 5 hours to arrive.
Fun fact, I’ve looked forward the annual free plugin Waves gives away on Black Friday for the past few years, and I’ve only recall seeing one smooth execution. I think they just always underestimate demand, but still cool they give away a free goodie.
I’ve always received my code eventually but I also always screenshot the confirmation page just in case I ever have to show support I did register in time to receive it.
Seems like the free monday plugin is out. It’s the One Knob Wetter reverb plugin.
