Used some coupons and picked up the UAD Capitol Chambers and 175B/176 plugins before the sale ends tonight. For singer songwriter stuff both of these plugins are really great. I love the 175B on Vocals.
Not the most exciting purchase, but I got the Waldorf Largo virtual analog synthesizer plugin for $25. It's just a slightly different flavor of virtual analog, interesting oscillators.
More exciting, I got a TON of free Kontakt instruments. When you buy Kontakt it opens up a whole slew of instruments that are "free" but require the Kontakt full version player. I've been very inspired by these sounds, and working with samples in general. It opens up the palette massively from the usual bass/drums/guitar/singing formula that rules most of what I do. My last track had tabla drums, digital piano, rhodes piano, bowed grand piano, some kind of weird atmosphere, and so on. It's so much fun to use a good sampler.
EDIT: also grabbed the Lindell 354e multiband diode "neve" compressor from plugin alliance as the sale period runs out. Have the normal version already, just wanted to be able to use multiband.

VUMT Deluxe impressed me so much I bought MJUC for myself after playing with it before a lot and thinking it would never work for fast metal. Holy shit. This is awesome to push into. The kicks are phat. Nice. Heavier than Magic Death Eye in a good way. Holy fuck. Smooth and heavy without being muddy. This is better than a Manley Vari-mu for what I do. It's faster. Deep gr is possible with vibe unlike a lot of other plugin compressors, which just makes things smaller and let you brickwall. You can ride the faders to avoid extreme rectifier shitting out. God damn. I didn't buy this before as MJUC jr sucked on what I do. The dad rules.
