Waves Audio announced that they’re releasing a free VST plugin on Black Friday. Interested users can sign up now to reserve their free plugin on November 25th, 2022.
Getting a free Waves plugin on Black Friday has become a tradition. Waves Audio releases a Black Friday every year, whether it’s something completely new and original or an old plugin that’s free for a limited time.
Here are several freebies Waves Audio offered over the years:
- Lofi Space Is Waves Audio’s FREE Black Friday Plugin (2021)
- Waves Will Release A Free CLA Plugin On Black Friday (2020)
- Waves Berzerk Distortion VST Plugin Is FREE This Black Friday! (2019)
- Waves Audio Sibilance De-Esser Is FREE This Black Friday! (2018)
- Waves SuperTap Delay Is FREE This Black Friday! (2016)
Evidently, Black Friday is a good time to visit the Waves Audio website. But it’s best to sign up and reserve your plugin as soon as possible, as the high traffic usually causes website issues once the freebie drops. If you sign up in advance, Waves will send you a free copy via email.
Some of the previous freebies weren’t so well received by the users (such as the Lofi Space plugin), but some are undeniably excellent plugins. One such example is the Sibilance de-esser which remains one of the best de-esser plugins on the market. The plugin now costs $79 (currently on sale for $29), but many users got it for free as a Black Friday gift in 2018.
The promo video doesn’t reveal much, except stating that “This Black Friday your sound will change.” The video looks like it was shot on vintage film, though, so perhaps that is a clue? Will it be another music mixing tool or a secret sound design weapon? We’ll have to wait until November 25th to find out.
To reserve your free copy of the next Waves freebie, visit the promo page linked below and enter your email address. Once you submit the email, you should see this confirmation message in your browser:
“On Black Friday, Nov 25, we’ll send you an email with instructions on how to get your free plugin. Come back to Waves.com on Black Friday to get it free. In the meantime: Get early access to Black Friday Deals – NOW!”
Waves claim that the forthcoming freebie will be a brand new plugin, so we know for sure it won’t be a reissue of an old product.
On a related note, Waves Audio is currently running the Early Bird Black Friday sale with limited-time discounts on 30 different products.

Thanks to BPB reader Jamie M. for the info about the Waves freebie.
What a surprise Waves is doing the same thing on each and every Black friday.
I will never buy Waves.
They sued many people in my country.
Have a happy Black Friday BPB, Tomislav and everyone!
Thanks! Let’s see what to expect this year! We hope something useful :)
Waves currently offers their Platinum Bundle for 99.99 USD. It’s not the first time though. I remember two occasions not so long ago, when they surprised users with this huge discount. If someone already owns some of the plugins from this bundle, there is even a chance to get the whole set as an upgrade with even lower price.
I never thought to check the upgrade path and you are correct it is cheaper. Do you know if that upgrade price will remain. Its $90 so not a massive saving but would save me purchasing it just now
I think that as soon as this very low price for the bundle goes back to normal, the tempting upgrade price won’t be there anymore.
