Ohm Force updates Ohmicide:Melohman to v1.25 + ALL-ALL Bundle at 40% discount

Ohm Force Ohmicide:Melohman

Ohm Force has released version 1.25 of Ohmicide:Melohman, a multi-band distortion effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

All Ohmicide:Melohman owners your attention please! During the last few months some of you have been experiencing a nasty bug involving the plug-in’s GUI and the more recent versions of Logic, Live and Cubase.

In some setups Ohmicide could make the DAW unresponsive for a few seconds (or minutes). If this happened to you, or if you’ve experienced any performance issue with the Ohmicide – download and install the new 1.25 version, already available for VST and AU. Soon RTAS will be online updated as well.

Ohmicide:Melohman is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) starting at 99 EUR.

It is also included in the ALL-ALL Bundle, which will be available at a 40% discount on Friday 24th December, as part of the Ohm Force Christmas Sale.

To benefit from this discount, during the checkout copy/paste the code “ALL-ALL-ID-WANT”, but keep in mind that this code will work only during the 24th December – and during the weekend that will follow.

Black Friday Deals: NI Half Off, Rain Computers, and Gorgeous $150 TMA Headphones

Black Friday, named originally for the day on which retailers typically broke even for the first time in the year (think black ink), has become a holiday for sales in the US. I’ve seen a handful of deals even in our world of music making tech; here are a few of the best.

Native Instruments has a sale through Monday that cuts prices in half on individual Komplete instruments and effects. Note that this is just for a la carte additions; the bundles are priced the same as always. But if there’s a particular tool you’ve had your eye on, this could be a great time to buy.

Twisted Tools have a 33% off sale on for their unusual sound-making creations.

Apple isn’t keen on sales, generally, so this is their one of the year: you get modest discounts on computers, an unusually-good iPad discount, and accessory sales. Some of these are decent if you’re in the market, though you’ll want to compare against academic pricing if you qualify for that:

If you prefer Windows to Mac OS, Rain Computers have a deal through the weekend on all their machines through Best Buy, with discounts of up to $200 off:

Our friends at Dijitalfix (who host our Handmade Music series in New York) have set up a discount for CDM readers for $50 off the Danish AiAiAi TMA-1 headphones. I’m writing this up soon. Through Sunday, just mention CDM at their stores in Brooklyn or Manhattan, or to make life easier, they’ve gone ahead and dropped the price to $149 online:
