Soundwide Offers FREE iZotope, Native Instruments, Plugin Alliance Software


Native Instruments, iZotope, Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and Sound Stacks joined Soundwide, a new audio software supergroup. Soundwide offers FREE Neutron Elements, NI Ethereal Earth, and the Plugin Alliance Welcome Bundle to celebrate.

A year ago, Native Instruments and iZotope joined forces. The team is now even bigger, as three new companies (Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and Sound Stacks) decided to join the new company, which is now named Soundwide.

We’re yet to see what this will mean for the end-users in the future. For now, we have reason to celebrate as Soundwide offers a range of free software to everyone interested.

I’ll go right ahead and say that this is one of the best limited-time freebies ever. Plugin Alliance offers $599 worth of free goodies in their Welcome Bundle, including the bx_oberhausen synthesizer and bx_console Focusrite SC virtual console, just to name a few. iZotope and Native Instruments sweeten the pot with Neutron Elements and Ethereal Earth.

And if you’re looking to purchase some software, use the coupon code SOUNDWIDE2022 to get 10% OFF your next order from Native Instruments, Plugin Alliance, or iZotope.

Let’s take a look at the available freebies.

iZotope Neutron Elements

Neutron Elements is the entry-level edition of iZotope’s AI-based mixing assistant. The software uses intelligent algorithms to analyze audio and provide mixing suggestions.

The included Track Assistant will help you detect mix issues in the frequency domain. You can apply these AI-based suggestions automatically with Neutron Elements’ built-in EQ or use third-party software to fine-tune the mix based on those suggestions.

Either way, Neutron Elements is a handy mixing tool that you can use as an “extra set of ears” in your studio.

  1. Tomislav Zlatic


    Thanks to BPB readers Aris, Stewart H., Igor S., Gery Zenz, and PureFire for the info! Also, sorry if you experienced performance issues on BPB today (especially when posting comments or sending messages). Our server was undergoing maintenance but things should be running smoothly now.

  2. That is an almost shockingly great freebie!! :-) Oberhausen for free! Pure synchronicity as Oberheim the firm also got relaunched today

    • Synchronicity indeed. I have been thinking of the Black Box Analog HG-2MS for a while now and then this amazing deal comes through.

  3. I’m not too crazy about Neutron, it’s almost always on sale and if someone wanted to grab it, did it already for few bucks but the Plugin Alliance bundle… just left me speechless.
    All these plugins are top tier industry standards, in total worth hundreds (even if you consider regular sales and vouchers from PA). Probably one of the best vst freebies of all time and never mind I already own Focusrite, Masterdesk and Ampeg :D
    Thanks a million times for sharing these awesome news!

    • I welcome izotope, but Neutron Elements is a drop in the ocean compared to the Plugin Alliance offering at this time.
      I think I have earned Neutron Elements several times over before free, shopping at Plugin Boutique

      • Somehow Neutron is the only one out of the “Elements” trio that i kept missing for free for the last 3 years. Glad to finally get it, if only to complete my “Elements” trio. XD

  4. Like when airlines join together to create Star Alliances, this is also maybe the future of plugin developers, creating alliances to stay afloat

    • I got “Error creating license file.” when trying to activate the Plugin Alliance plugins on the Mac (MacOS Monterey).Their support page says to change permissions on a fairly big Application Support folder on my Mac (which isn’t straight forward in Monterey due to security) or use a USB stick for the licence file. Anyone know what’s up with that?

    • That’s how the game goes bro ahah.. You win some you lose some.. Been there, done that..>>We’ve ALL been there facts!! You will have your day/turn to get them back for plenty trust lol, so don’t even trip.. Just be patiemt and have your eyeballs open, alert, & make sure you are constently checking your music products subs/websites/Emails etc, as well Plugin Boutique, and BPB.. At some point they will have something you’ve been wanting really badly for free ahah.. They always do.. And i emphasize (always) more facts

    • Myself personally.. I bought the “Bx_MasteringDesk.” & i also have the Jr/Bx_Mastering Desk Classic version (free) . & Now it’s free as well.. But i’m NOT mad bkz now they’ve given me The “Bx_Focusrite SC” (which i’ve been wanting & should pair great with my Foscusrite audio interface). As well, I also own the (paid for) the Bx-Console N (Neve) which is my fav/ go to Channel strip. Now i also have got the “Black Box Analog Design SG2”, the “Shadow Hills MC”, “Bx_Oberheim”. I already owned/had the “Ampeg SVT VR Classic” which i got for (free).

      So my point is is i’ll GLADLY PAY for one plugin (which i got on sale anyway lol) IE Bx_ mastering Desk, for the 4 MORE DOPE a** plugins that i’ve been salivating over owning which ALL the freebies i’ve planned to buy ahha, now thank God i don’t have to buy at least those lol..

      I own like what, 30, 40 PA plugins lmao!

      Here’s a litlle list copied & pasted from my user accnt of all the (free) & (paid) plugins i own. Truth be told i don’t really need to purchase ANY more plugins, as i have every kind one could need for producing, Mixing, & Mastering facst.. >>Even IZotope, Got Neutron E, Nectar, Ozone 9 etc which i don’t even use bkz i’ve learned how to Mix & Master BETTER than the A.I stuff. Tho i do use it tie to tie as a (refference) basis to compare my EAR, Mixes, Masters up next to them. If mines (sound) better than Izotope applied i know i’m on the right track feel me ahah ijs.

      This is my PA stuff tho bro. Got some heavy hitters & some light weighters! I would say that 65 to maybe 75% of the/my PA plugins i own are FREE , & i’ve only paid for 25 to 35% of the ones i did purchase.BUT>>>they were on sale so i’ve NEVER, ever paid (full price) for ANY plugins of PA’s nor anyone elses feel me.. I just WAIT them out for over 50% off sales, and or until it becomes free.. I’ve become somewhat a (Master) at reading the (Market).. Knowing WHEN the beast deals, sales, & offers will be available.. So i’m never in the dark, or miss out feel me.. I use to go krazy trying to keep up with when the sales,deals. freebies etc were happening. But once i figured out the “Calender” aspect of how the “Seasonal” plugin sale game is played i learned how to predict, assess the Market to my own benefit opposed to theirs due to consumer ignorance feel me lol ahah.

      So just look at it as you paid $50 for ALL those freebies with your (Bx_Oberheim) purchase they just gave you,>> which is a FIRST TIME offering of such “Heavy hitter” plugings from PA facts.

      Mind you i’ve been a pretty good/loyal customer as i buy my plugins from only 2 websites Plugin Boutique, & PA facts. The past years they’ve offered me NOTHING FREE of this sort, magnitude etc on God.. So be GRATEFUL, don’t see it as betrayal, & or them duping you u know what i’m saying bro bkz the BENEFITS outweight the negatives on a serious level. Just think SOME people WILL MISS these DOPE freebies that are “Must haves” in my book bkz they are to preoccuppied with the bs in their immediate lives lmao!!

      I counte 10 plugins i actually paid for bro.. >>ALL the REST were free with vouchers, and coupons on God.. I bought the

      Bx_Console N, BX_Mastering Desk, Bx_Townhouse Bus Compressor, DS Thorn, Knif Audio Knifonium, Lindell Audio (6X, 7X, PEX 500’s), Maag Audio (EQ2, & EQ4). That’s it bro.. All the rest were free believe it or not ahah. And i got the ones i paid for on a KILLER sale deal.. As they say, it’s not what u do but HOW your are going about doing it feel me?

    • And if ur intrested in purchasing Native Instruments industry standard sampler plugin “Kontakt” for half ($99) off (year round, not just during seasonal sales etc) you should download the “ARCANE” game/instrument plugin andf add the serial # to your Native Instruments account & you’ll have a year round 50% off KONTAKT.. You may even catch it on sale for $50 if ur lucky lol..

      N.I have as of the past recent 2,3 years have also become more consumer freindly, IE offering MUCH more FREE N.I ecosystem entry plugins which they were NOT known to be very generous prior to that.. That’s the Music Production software i use, & favor! >>>>I’ve been with N.I for over 10 (12 to be exact) years. And they have NEVER given as much freebies away as the past 2,3 years & TRUST i would know bkz i had been waiting, & waiting, & wiating, & waiting pissed at them for not offering better deals, on exchange fro my $$$$$, purchases. So i just QUIT buying from them feel me. As i see others, N.I customers did as well>>>>which FORCED them to feed us, & give us equal, equity for our share exchange in the profits made by N.I by way of OYAL, LIFER customers! They were REALLY BAD at not sharing in the wealth. It was pure GREED on behalf of N.I for 10 + years smh. Thank God they FINALLY got the message after them SALES started to DIP past expectation feel me lol facts? Now you can’t stop them from offering freebies bkz they’ve seen how GREAT that approach works.. IE GIVE A LITTLE to get a lot MORE back in customer loyalty, and direct sales.. Now they are back UP, on the up swing with more consistent purchases from the oldest, most loyal die hard custmores such as myself, to the NEWBIE’S new to their software music products (which is whom they use to ONLY cater to/offer deals for some stupid reason, but NOT those of use who have been with them over 10 years smdh)

      Recently I’ve Bought “Cloud Supply”, aswell “Glaze” BOTH must have for TRAP, Trap Soul, R&B, Hip Hop etc.. I believe i bought one or two more i can’t recall at the moment. But they’ve given away “Analog Dreams”, the Play Series, now “Ethereal Earth”. The “25” plugin also to celebrate their 25th year in business etc. Those are ALL must have go to plugins. But once they are not free they are GONE bkz N.I is a (stickler) for their free offers, get it now or never bkz they put it right back FOR sale at the normal rate prices

      I advise getting KONTAKT bkz of the sheer POWER at your finger tips.. It’s MORE than just a simple, standard sample..>>You can make YOUR OWN VST’s & Instruments feel me? And SALE THEM yourself.. Tho N.I TAKES a helluva chunk by way of charging for (licensing terms) if it’s a paid Vst product.. BUT>>If it’s free i don’t believe it,/the same applies. Which is yet another aspect, reason to but KONTAKT.. >>There are literally HUNDREDS, to THOUSANDS of the absolute BEST FREE Vst’s/Virtual Instruments offered by some of the best Developers in the game from amatuers to seasoned pro’s feel me. With KONTAKT only you should never need to buy ANY Vsti plugins facts..

      Kontakt also has any & every dope EFX in their samlper software. You can DESIGN your very own effects plugins as well.. So Kontakt essentially allows you to become a PLAYER/seller, resource provider opposed to just being a consumer, buyer etc.. It can do SO MUCH more I don’t have the time, energy, or space to type all what it does.. It simply is THE most powerful Sampler their ever was in the market. & Again, don’t let the term/use of the word “Sampler” underestimate the POWER of KONTAKT facts on God. IDK they even call it a Sampler bkz that’s actually the LEAST interesting aspect, thing about KONTAKT frfr lol. I would call it an Vsti “Intrument” making piece of software if anything else. What you would call a “Sound designers dream” if you will bkz you can essential do, create what ANY software plugin developers are making, have made etc

      So even if you don’t install the “Arcane” (By EMERTONE) plugin bro which i myself have not yet done lol, you can still ADD the SERIALS to your N.I user account on their website or even more transparently through the Native Instruments Plugin Hub aka “NATIVE ACCESS”!

      So all you need but do is register, sunscribe with EMBERTONE, then they’ll sunmit a SERIAL # for your (free) product ARCANE. >>>Without downloading ANYTHING (unless/if you so chose) just take the serial # as i said and register it in N.I.. Then when you go to you USER ACCNT with N.I you will see a SPECIAL “crossgrade” offer for you when you enagage the purchase of KONTAKT which will take you to the buyers page. It will have a box with what offers, upgrades, crossgrades apply to your accnt etc. & bkz you own ARCANE they will offer half off. BOOM!! Lmao. You may be aware of all this already. But MOST, MANY novices, newbies don’t know HOW to get around paying FULL price for KONTAKT which is a mind shattering $199, essentially $200 bucks! SO>>> it’s more than WORTH sunscrbing to EMRTONE to the ARCANE Vst serial feel me?

      We’re all in this chyt together bro. Producer fam takes care of one another period. We all know how PRICEY this chyt can get facts. So ANY reduction, money SAVED is what it’s all about. But still aquiring the BEST music production software without BREAKING the bank so to speak.

      So now you have a few tips from a MASTER plugin buyer who spends little to nothing on the best plugins in the game, in he Market etc facts..

    • This is why it is a good idea to buy plugins from developers that don’t do sales, they just price their plugin at a reasonable price.

  5. Thanks for everything Tomislav, BPB 🙏
    What a very generous celebration offer of Soundwide’s partnership from all involved but especially from Brainworx who suffered with the terrible flood damage last year, good on em & thank you ☘️❤️😊

    • NOT ONE PENNY bro facts!! It, the FREEBIE offer of Plugin Alliance blew my mind bkz I am ALWAYS on their site shopping, and looking for them them to throw THIS exact kind of bone to dawg feel me ahha? This is essentially HISTORY bkz PA has NEVER offered, & or allowed especially a “3party” solicitor to give such highly sought after plugins from their very exclusive products line..

      In fact..>>I’VE ALREADY GOT MY FREE BUNDLE on God ahah smh lmao..>> DOWNLOADED IT & ready to rev up my (Native Instruments) “Maschine” Software which is my production tool of choice. That’s how i got into dealing with N.I products 12 years ago.. I wanted a piece of software that had that “MPC 60, 2000 etc” feel to it, but with the futuristic, technical benefits of using a PC to make my tracks. Ogf course theirs NOTHING like the actuall MPC as for it’s ” Natural Analog” sound, and that incredible, unformittable “MPC SWING” that just amkes your beats natural swing, sway with that “Humanized” feel to it. But N.I’s “MASCHINE” is the closest thing to it in feel & as well (work flow) imo

      It’s a bit unorthodox, to some can be very confusing, IE has a step learning curb etc.. But it’s worth getting to know the software bkz it’s very powerful feel me. BETTER than ABLTON, & FRUITY LOOPS! I use GROWN MAN/ Hip Hop software not 5 year old, teenager software (FL studio) ahah!! & ABLETON live to me is more for EDM and similar genre’s. MASCHINE is for ANYTHING, everyone facts!! I make whatever styles i chose & they ALL translate very well

      Thankfully, for myself I got into N.I’s “Grove Box” MASCHINE 12 years ago.. So i’m WAY ahead of the learning curb and have MASTERED the functionality, & know how to engage 90% of the features MASCHINE has to offer.. If you don’t have TOTAL control (understanding) of the software etc it can be a bit perplexing for some, but for me i took to it like fish to water bkz it’s very similar to an MPC which i had used many times but never owned one due to their high, over priced hardware units (which are essentiall obsolete due to software such as MASCHINE) facts!! I even have the MPC free DAW! But it’s still not fkn with MASCHINE, not in raw power, flexibilty, and most importantly WORK FLOW!

      But yeah bro, it’s NO CATCHES to this one. Just go add it to your cart & it automatically applies the rebate voucher & subtract equals the purchase to $0 dollars. I am an avid customer, so i just logged in and got my chyt immediately ahaha facts!!

      Don’t wait to long.. It’s over in what, a day shy of 2 solid weeks (April 26th i believe they said).. Again, mind you that>>I’ve already downloaded & installed my free bundle products.. Didn’t have not one problem..

      Truth be told..>>I myself at first dawning the 100% FREE offer didn’t even BELIEVE it.. I LMAO so hard in complete DOUBT that PA via (SOUNDWIDE) was offering such high end plugins, some of the BEST in PA’s line up. & That’s bkz i’m a DAILY customer and they NEVER have directly or indirectly for that matter offered, & or >>given away such STELLAR top name plugins from their various top of the line plugin catolgue.. I said to myself “I’m not believing this BS is true until i have them in my cart, serials in my accnt, and downloaded/installed” I swear bro. But it was TRUE to my SHOCK & pleasure at the same time

      You know how they say “If it’s 2good 2be true it probably isn’t”? Well THIS TIME it absolutely is, was.. MANY PRODUCERS due to doubtfulness, disbelief of such a stealthy, healthy deal that >>>there IS NO CATCH, just an easy cart & their yours. If your familiar with & a regular Plugin Alliance product user you know, & assume that they would NEVER offer THESE particular plugins as FREEBIES facts on God!! This is why i say they may not believe it’s a REAL free offer ahahha. They probably think it’s some kind of internet scam on God..

      I said who in fk they think they (PA) fooling ahaha.. Now they know ain’t no damn way in hell they about to give away the Analag Black Box, Focusrite SC, MasterDesk, Ampeg, Oberhiem, & laslty Shadow Hills Masterinf Compressor

      To many dope plugins to be believed out right that they ARE actually, litterally being offered for the fabulous price of $0.00 dollars.. Of course I had to see for myself before i start RIPPING into them on BPB, & other simliar sites for them lying/false advertisement lol. .Now i don’t have to rant about how BS this all was.. I thought there would at least be a “Minimun purchase” required, as that is the standard of PA’s business approach & model. To my shock, & suprises they didn’t even want a minimum purchase which was even more lovely bkz i would have gladly spent $10, $20 bucks to get my hads on these very lucritive/highend PA plugins.. Been wanting these particular ones for years now facts1

  6. Based on the email I got from Plugin Alliance, I thought I had to endure installing yet another installation manager, But luckily in my PA account I can download the installers, and even authorize the plugins offline. Great! :-)

  7. This Bundle iss a real nice gift, bought Oberhausen in the first sale when it was realesed and only this synth is a big big gift, or the best synth gift i´ve ever seen, together with the Blackbox HG2, Focusrite Channelstrip and Shadow Hill Mastering Comp it´s incredible If someone needs a real big sounding synth for less money buy knifonium in salle, it´s also really cool thick sounding device. I also bought elysia mpressor, Millennia NSEQ-2, Lindell Audio TE-100, Brainworx bx_digital V2 and the nice spectral grain delay sandman pro years ago. I have quiet the same collection of PA stuff like J and most stuff for free. Plugin Alliance was and is the best pro effect seller in the market, most of the waves stuff compared with it is overpriced trash.

    I don´t know why PA made this step, so last year they lost their working space in a flood and maybe the got a little bit bankrupt, we don´t know….

    But thanks a lot for your work, PA is one of the companys how pushed the sound of small homeproducers massive :)

  8. Old Dirty BASStard


    The PA plugins crash my DAWs and even standalone plugin hosts. Discovered the problem has to do with the GPU. When I use the integrated graphic card they work fine but crash when I switch to The Geforce card. It must be something to do with open GL. Problem is most of my other plugins prefer the GeForce especially Serato Sample which is used a lot so sadly I’m gonna have to miss out. A googlle search showed that there are many others with similar problem but PA doesn’t seem interested considering their lack of proper response to those who brought said issue to their attention.
