Another round of 50% off at Native Instruments
« on: July 09, 2012, 10:50:01 AM »
Others have raised the alert previously when NI's having one of their big sales. After skipping the last couple of rounds of upgrades to Komplete, I went ahead today... upgraded Komplete 5 to Komplete 8 for $114.50 including shipping!

Holy wow, what a deal. Lots of new stuff included that wasn't in the package last time. Now I just need to do some recording again soon.

Anything worth getting in the new version? What about the older software that has been discontinued, does that stuff still work?
Take care.

I haven't kept close track of what they added with each new version. This link shows in detail what's included in Komplete 8, both the regular and ultimate versions.

So far as I know, any older NI programs not included (or no longer included) in Komplete should not stop functioning just because you upgrade Komplete.

This didn't include tons of stuff I don't already have, but for $114.50, the updates, some new patches and sample libraries seem worth it.
