I’ve been a subscriber of Slate’s everything bundle since day 1. It’s been nice not having to worry about updates thanks to gobbler’s update system. It’s been great getting new tools to be creative with every few months. And it’s been great being able to afford every plugin for a little more than my Netflix subscription.
I’ve long felt that this was a good deal. In order to buy every plugin in the bundle, paying $15 each month it would’ve taken more than 11 years to pay them all off. And that didn’t factor in the amount of plugins being added to the bundle during those 11 years, which would each move the mark further and further back in time. Effectively, you could get access to it all for less than you’d pay if you bought each plugin outright.
Fast forward to this week. Slate Digital’s Everything Bundle is gone, and in its place is the All Access Pass.
The price point is the same, but you still get all of Slate’s plugins. You still get the Eiosis Air EQ and De-Esser2. You still get the Overloud THU Slate Edition. But here’s a rundown of things that were added.
- 28 plugins from Kilohearts
- The Kilohearts Multipass processor
- The ANA 2 Synth, which is the first virtual instrument included in one of Slate’s bundles.
- Access to Slate Academy, which offers courses from Chris Lorde-Age, Sevenn, Just Blaze, Matthew Weiss, and more.
And I’m still only paying $14.99 each month.
Rewind to 2009. I got my first slate product, Steven Slate Drums 3.5 EX, for $20 on a “no brainer” deal from a retailer that has since gone out of business. 10 years later, this is the new standard for “no brainer”, and I’m still using Slate’s products after a decade.
