EVERY. SINGLE. PLUGIN.
Plugin Alliance MEGA Bundle
The Plugin Alliance MEGA Bundle is currently the best deal for a plugin subscription.
I know, we all HATE subscriptions for our creative tools, but this is one that actually delivers VALUE with over a hundred amazing tools that actually sound good and make your mixes better.
I don’t want to push a subscription on anyone, but you really need to do the math to see what it actually costs per plugin, per day, and then figure out if having access to all of these tools would provide more value than the cost.
We have a full run down of cost per plugin here.
The MEGA Bundle is a yearly or monthly subscription.
You can also purchase the full V1 MEGA Bundle outright for a shocking $7000!
Though, it makes more sense to subscribe since you will get new plugins added to the bundle over time. With the purchased version, you get what you get.
BUT WAIT! There’s MORE!
You also get a $249 voucher when you purchase the YEARLY MEGA Bundle, or subscribe for a straight 12 months with the MONTHLY MEGA Bundle!
Yeah, that’s right, it’s almost like getting PAID to use some of the BEST plugins out there.
Bottom line: there are simply NO better plugin subscription plans available today. PERIOD!
This is the BEST subscription plan currently available when you consider all you get, the quality of the plugins, and the price of the hardware units you would need to re-create the same professional, high-quality sound.
As of May 22, 2020, there are 117 products included with the MEGA Bundle. This number will increase over time, so be sure to check the Plugin Alliance website for the currently included plugins.
Watch the video at the bottom of the page to see ALL of the included plugins in a single video.
With the MEGA Bundle you are getting EQs, compressors, limiters, guitar amps, bass amps, stomps pedals, classic consoles, synths, delays, reverb, fx, and so much more.
Many of the included plugins are modeled after hardware that costs $5,000, $7,000, and even $10,000 or more per unit!
Plus, many of the plugins include something called TMT, or Tolerance Modeling Technology.
What is TMT? Simply put, it’s the thing most other plugins that model hardware are missing!
If you take an SSL 4000 E console for example, each channel will have parts that are slightly (and I do mean slightly) different from each other. This is because there is a TOLERANCE when manufacturing each component that goes into an EQ or Compressor for example.
And it’s exactly these tiny, tiny differences that give you a true “analog sound” (along with proper modeling of course).
In many modeled plugins, like an SSL Console model, only one channel is modeled.
This means when you put it across all your tracks it will probably sound good, but it won’t be like using a real desk, because you are essentially running all your tracks though only ONE modeled channel.
But, with TMT, you can use different modeled channels on each track and when they are combined together…. BOOM!
It sounds so good.
The MEGA Bundle includes the best channel strips based on legendary desks that I have ever heard.
I’m talking about SSL 4000 E and G, a couple awesome Neve consoles, and the rare Focusrite Studio Console.
(The SSL 9000 J was added in April 2020)
The guitar amps and bass amps are the absolute best to date. I have tried almost every amp plugin around, and in over 12 years of using amp plugins, these are the BEST. The Mesa Dual Rectifier feels like the real thing, the Diezel Herbert and VH4 are the best models you will find for those amps. The ENGL E646 VS is brutal and also warm and clean when needed. And that’s just naming a few of the included amps.
The officially approved Ampeg bass amp models have set a new standard (as have the guitar amps).
The elysia EQs and compressors give you the authentic sound of the hardware units, and these units are not cheap!
There are too many plugins to go in-depth with in one article, but below we’ll have pictures of each plugin included as well as a video with sound samples.
