Apogee now offers free Waves plug-in bundles worth up to $600 w/ its iOS/Mac audio interfaces

Apogee, an industry leader in digital audio, is now offering some serious software packages with its stellar home audio interfaces. Apogee’s Duet, Quartet and the professional Ensemble interfaces, now come with a free Waves plug-in bundle. While you will be paying regular price for the interface itself, these Waves packages are regular $600 for the Silver bundle and $800 for the Gold package.

You can grab a Duet or Quartet on Amazon right now for $100 less than the new Waves bundles, and you can get these particular plug-in packages for about $200 under their regular price on Amazon. But we rarely see Apogee interfaces go for much less than that outside of special holiday events, and it’s usually manufacturer refurbished models. Anyone in the market for a new Apogee will likely see a lot more value (between $300 and $600 depending on the model) with the new Waves bundle offerings.

These Waves plug-in bundles come with a number of very popular products among professional audio engineers/producers including complete EQ and compression suites for Logic Pro X or Pro Tools etc:

  • Over 30 essential audio plugins for mixing and mastering
  • Great introduction to the world of Waves
  • V5 features new versions of Enigma, MondoMod, Super Tap,
  • Includes compressors, equalizers, reverbs, effects and more

Amazon is offering the Numark Mixtrack Edge Slimline USB DJ Controller with Integrated Audio Output for $99 shipped. That’s $200 under the original listing, $40 better than Guitar Center and the best we’ve seen.

This is a light and extremely portable, 2-channel DJ controller that offers many of the basic options as a full fledged pro controller like the new Numark NV. You’ll find everything from Sync, Hot Cue, Loop, EQ and two effects controls all packed within a case that is less than 1-inch thick. It also has a built-in audio interface, metal platters, can be bus powered with the included USB cable and works with both Mac and PC along with a host of popular DJ software.

It has received a 4.2/5 star rating on Amazon and includes the Numark Remix Toolkit download ($200 value).
