Wondering what the best Black Friday music production deals are in 2019? In this post i'll share my favorites that i'm aware of, even ones that haven't been announced yet. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the best times during the year to upgrade your music studio, for both software and hardware. Almost every company in the world has their best sale of the year, so don't miss out on the great opportunity to stock up!

One of the best buys for this Black Friday in 2019 is probably Arturia's V Collection 7 bundle. If you've never heard of Arturia and their instruments, their specialty is in their virtual modeled instruments that bring legendary vintage synths to the software world. Synths like the Moog mini-Moog, the Roland Jupiter 8, Yamah's DX7 and many more are in this incredible package.
At only $299 (regular $499) you'll get 24 software instruments, click here to see the detailed lineup. I purchased this bundle a year or 2 ago on a previous Black Friday sale and i'm very happy with the package - almost every music creator can find great use out of this package.
Native Instruments is running half-price on over 190 products in their lineup for their Thanksgiving XXL sale. If you've never heard of Native Instruments, they make Massive, Kontakt (which powers most sample libraries in the world), FM8, Reaktor, Maschine, and much more. The best deal to get is their Komplete bundle, which comes in many flavors.
I've been using Native Instrument products for years now, and almost every serious music creator out there is using their products in some way. As per usual with most companies on this list, Black Friday is the best deal you'll get all year on their products. Check out their deals here.
Waves runs a fantastic deal for Black Friday every year. I love Waves, and I have almost every single one of their plugins. While they do a great sale during Black Friday, their products go on sale for most of the year. So while I would recommend purchasing their plugins around this time to get the most savings, I wouldn't prioritize Waves because you can easily find a similar deal many other times throughout the year.
That being said, I highly recommend getting one of their bundles (the Gold bundle was my first experience with Waves). The L1 Ultramaximizer is something I use on almost every track, Waves Tune is my default pitch correction software, and H-Delay is my favorite delay plugin. They have audio plugins for almost any application and they're all very high quality.
Heavyocity specializes in cinematic Kontakt libraries. I'd highly recommend libraries like Damage, Gravity, Vocalise and Novo.
Output makes a fantastic collection of Kontakt libraries, audio effect plugins, and even studio furniture. For their Black Friday deal they're running 25% off of their already discounted bundle, and discounts on individual products. I believe I own every single one of their software products, and I even use their Platform studio desk and my main desk.
I would highly recommend their full suite bundle, but individual product highlights are Substance (a bass VST library), Exhale (a vocal engine VST sample library), and Portal (a granular audio effect plugin).
