As all guitarists know, our passion is an expensive one. We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to improve our recordings, usually at the expense of our bank balances – but right now, with the cost of living on the rise, we’re all looking for ways to save money without having to sacrifice our sound. The best guitar VSTs can often cost a fair bit, but with Waves’ Valentine’s Day buy one get one free sale (opens in new tab) now in full swing, you can upgrade your recording arsenal for less.

Waves is one of the industry’s biggest and most popular plugin creators, offering products to cover virtually every recording scenario, from mixing and mastering tools to amp modellers. From the classic-sounding Abbey Road Collection (opens in new tab) to the ultra-modern and unpredictable Berzerk Distortion (opens in new tab) – among many others – there’s not much that Waves’ plugins can’t do when it comes to making your tracks sound top-notch.

There are hundreds of plugins available in the Valentine’s Day sale this weekend – with many aimed squarely at guitar players – but here are some of our favorites.

Waves’ Valentine’s Day sale: Buy one get one free (opens in new tab)
Treat yourself this Valentine’s Day with two plugins for the price of one from Waves. Waves’ guitar plugins are some of the best around, including the PRS SuperModels and GTR3 (opens in new tab) amp modelers, as well as the whole Chris Lord Alge Signature Series (opens in new tab). Buy any plugin, and choose another from this 100-strong list of freebies (opens in new tab)

PRS SuperModels: $129, now $29.99 (opens in new tab)
Created in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith, Waves’ PRS SuperModels plugin models PRS’ Archon, Dallas and Blue Sierra/V9 amplifiers ultra-accurately. The range of tones available is vast – anywhere from aggressive distortion to boutique-style American cleans – and with eight different speaker cab IRs included, as well as the option to load your own third-party IRs, we can't find anything that these amps won't cover. Buy this plugin and get any of these plugins (opens in new tab) totally free.

Waves Platinum: Was $1,999.99, now $269.99 (opens in new tab)
Ok, so you were probably never going to spend full whack on this package, but right now Platinum is at a great price. Get your hands on 60 killer plugins for less than $270, which works out at $4.50 apiece. To get your hands on those plugins individually would cost the earth, so while they’re criminally cheap as part of the Valentine's Day sale we'd suggest you go for it – and get any of these plugins (opens in new tab) absolutely free at the same time.

Eddie Kramer Guitar Channel: was $99, now 29.99 (opens in new tab)
Producer Eddie Kramer has worked with Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Stones and many more. Here, you can get his guitar processing chain, all in one place. There's dynamics, modulation, EQ and delay. Get the sound of classic rock for less, and claim any free plugin from this list (opens in new tab).

I’m a Junior Deals Writer here at Guitar World - the ideal job for a gear nerd like myself. I, along with help from the rest of the eCommerce team, write, maintain and update our buyer’s guides and keep you up to date with the latest and best deals on killer gear. Before working on Guitar World I was a guitar salesman at a local music store, so I know a thing or two about matching people with their perfect instruments. I’ve also worked for online music distributors RouteNote, and toured the UK and Europe with my old band Hypophora. In my spare time, you’ll catch me writing songs, taking my greyhound, Simba, to the beach, or getting very nerdy about coffee.
