Attract New Customers
With Subscriptions

Grow your pro-audio subscription business with Gobbler, the leading SAAS pro-audio plugin subscription platform.

Why Subscription?

Publishers in the Pro-Audio space are always asking themselves how to grow their business beyond the target market of audio engineering professionals. The answer is here and it's subscription.

Benefits Include:

  • Larger addressable market - there's more amateurs and semi-pros than professional audio engineers out there.
  • Eliminate the boom and bust pain - with subscriptions, publishers experience consistent recurring monthly revenue.
  • Lower barrier to entry - subscriptions are cheaper for the customer and make the purchasing decision easy.
  • Easier release schedules - gone are the 18 month release cycles. Release when you're ready.

"Gobbler was literally a click-and-forget process."

"Gobbler used to get A LOT of bashing around here, but I think it's a great and user friendly system. Recently I had a system disk crash, and had to change the disk and install everything from scratch. Gobbler was literally a click-and-forget process. After I clicked "Install all" all of my Slate stuff AND Softube stuff got installed, while I could save time and do other things. Thumbs up! I think the only thing from Slate, that that wasn't automatically installed was the VMS."

- Slate Digital Customer

Got my software updated via the new Gobbler installer and all my odd plugin crashes, etc just 'went away' - the updated version is as close to perfect as I could imagine, at least for my own personal desires and workflow.
