Plugin Alliance ESSENTIAL Bundle

Everything you want to know about the NEW Plugin Alliance ESSENTIAL Bundle that includes 40+ plugins for only $10 a month and you get a $99.99 voucher that you can use to purchase any plugin(s) you wish (even when they are on sale!) after a continuous 12-months of subscription!

There is NO yearly commitment, cancel anytime you wish.

This is a great bundle for those who aren’t sure about plugin subscriptions and want to see how the process works. I personally don’t like most subscription plugin plans, but I do subscribe to the Plugin Alliance MEGA Bundle ($24.99/mo) because it’s an amazing value.

If you’re not sure about the MEGA Bundle or perhaps you don’t need all the plugins it offers, the ESSENTIAL Bundle would be my personal pick.

Check out our Plugin Alliance MEGA Bundle review.

NO ONE does plugin subscriptions better than Plugin Alliance. PERIOD!

Music Software Bundles from Pluginboutique.com

A few of the plugins included are the SSL 4000 E, bx_masterdesk, bx_rooM/S, Ampeg SVT-VR, Diezel VH4, bx_stereomaker, and Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor.

Just those plugins are worth the $10 a month (in my opinion) and you’re getting 33+ more!
