May is usually not a very busy month when it comes to music production software offers and discounts. But the situation is a bit different this year, as there are quite a few exclusive sales and freebie offers going on right now.
The first week of May is almost behind us, so let’s summarize the best software and soundware deals of the month so far. We also included the latest freebies, some of which are available for a limited time only (so be sure to act fast).
