We’re well into our own Black Friday madness in the DJTT store, but we’re not the only people out there offering great deals on DJ products. A number of manufacturers are offering their own major discounts on software, gear, and accessories, and we’ve put together a quick round of the best. See them all inside and add your own finds in the comments at the end of the article.
Serato has dropped their prices for Black Friday on “most black colored” items in their store, including t-Shirts, slipmats, phone/computer cases, and a load of different copies of control vinyl (half off, $15-17 for a set of the new remastered control tone). They’ve also put a Serato DJ + Video bundle on discount to $150, which could be a deal for DJs looking to update and get video at the same time. Check out all of the deals in their store here.
NUMARK iM1 + ORBIT DISCOUNTS
Numark has chipped prices on two of their products until the end of Cyber Monday. The iM1 mixer (with built-in iOS dock) drops to $49 – a pretty good price for a simple two channel mixer. Also the Orbit wireless controller, released earlier this year, down to $69. Check out both deals on Numark’s sale page here.
NATIVE INSTRUMENTS XXL SALE
Our friends from Berlin have also put together a ton of software-based deals for DJs and producers alike, dropping the price of Traktor Pro and Traktor DJ for iOS by 50% on all platforms. At the same time, they’re knocking 50% off of Komplete’s Instruments and Effects, Maschine’s Expansion packs, and iMaschine as well. See all of the deals on their Black Friday page – good until December 9th.
Ableton’s dropping all of their software by 20%, including Live 9, upgrades from older versions of Live, Live 9 with Push bundles, expansion (instrument, effects, etc) packs, and Max for Live. Check out all of the prices here – probably not a bad time to update to Live 9 if you’ve been putting it off.
There are only a few companies out there who make custom skins for DJ gear – and one of them, Styleflip, is running a Black Friday deal dropping the price of all of the skins down by 30%. Styleflip can create custom skins for laptops, phones, headphones, mixers, controllers, and more – to get the discount, place an order on their site and enter discount code GVTHX2013 at checkout.
The esteemed synth-makers have cut the price of their awesome Animoog iOS synth application. If software synths aren’t your thing, they’re also offering a 10% off all hardware purchases made on their site, and any order over $250 (pretty common when buying Moog gear) will get a free EP-3 Expression Pedal. Their deals last until Monday night as well, so check them all out here.
While we’re still waiting to hear what’s coming up next from this relatively quiet (as of late) manufacturer, they’re taking this opportunity to discount their flagship models of DJ gear. If you’re in the market for a SC3900 or SC2900 CDJ, or perhaps the four channel MC6000 controller, they all have deals going on for the next few days. Check out the pricing in their most recent email newsletter.
