We polled over 17,000 members of our Audio Plugin Sales and Deals Facebook group to find out which deals are ticking the right boxes this week.
It's still January and we're still in a bit of a post-holiday lull. It's been a slow poll this week but there are some great deals available for anyone who has any money left.

Now, let' take a look at the top deals...
No expiry date as far as we can tell...
Freebies always rank high in our poll... if they're any good. And it seems this one is worth grabbing. Layers is an orchestral VST instrument, and an easy way to add orchestral sounds to your compositions and productions. Draw from the finest recordings of strings, woodwinds, and brass. Generate full chords with one-touch simplicity. And seamlessly blend layers of tonal colors and dynamics with your MIDI controller.
It requires Orchestral Tools' SINE Player, which is also free.

This is the goto-compressor for vocals, but it also works incredibly well for bringing out the ambiance on percussive material and helping to put some glue into your mixes!

Kilohearts are back on the list again. This time courtesy of Plugin Boutique and their NAMM exclusive. A few people may have been looking out for this offer on Black Friday but only the two top bundles went on sale on the Kilohearts site. This one is just the core Phase Plant synth without any of the extra effects modules other than those that are free anyway. Even without the effects, this is a very powerful synthesis machine and will also get you on the upgrade path. Usually $169, you can currently get it for just $99.
There's a load of demos and reviews online now so I'm just gonna drop the playlist from their channel here. Note that there is a significant update due any time now.
Full Kontakt required. Expires February 16th
Introducing Pro II - A versatile hybrid synthesizer for Kontakt 4, influenced by the legendary monophonic analogue synthesizer!
A limitless source of screaming bass lines, lush synth tones and powerful analogue sequences, Pro II by Wave Alchemy is powered by over 6500 carefully recorded multi-sampled sounds, driven by a custom scripted Kontakt 4 engine and intuitive graphical interface.

The votes were thin on the ground by the time we got to number five... but here it is for your consideration!
Sound Particles uses the concept of computer graphics, but for audio: each particle represents a 3D sound source (instead of a 3D object) and a virtual microphone captures the virtual sound of the particles (instead of the virtual CGI camera).
