So I bought Kontakt 5 mid October so I could use the Epic Dhol, first time Native Instrument user. I was also in the market for VST drums and really like Studio Drummer. I ended up buying EZ drummer on ebay because I found a good deal. Well, I had no clue what Komplete 8 was, had I known what it was and that it includes Komplete 5 AND Studio Drummer AND a whole bunch of other awesome VSTs I would have been all over it! So I ended up paying almost the same for Kontakt and EZ Drummer as I would have for Komplete 8!
I just emailed NI in hopes that I could do some kind of trade or upgrade. If not, I'm going to beat myself up for rushing another purchase

I've been at this for about 3 years and have only used the vsts and plug ins that come with cubase. Currently I'm running Cubase 6. Eventually I got EWQL HS and got into making epic stuff. Found the Epic Dhol and couldn't use it without the retail version of Kontakt. Without much research, just bought it.
There you go
Now I'm here

So you MIGHT already be eligible for a Komplete discount based on your Kontakt purchase. If you don't like the prices you see when logged in, you can plead your case with email support.

Back to the Toontrack stuff, register at audiodeluxe.com for their email notices and if you're patient you'll get some amazing deals. However, Superior Drummer is the way to go so use your EZDrummer purchase to upgrade when there is a sale. Superior Drummer is strikingly close to what it was like for me to record and mix drums in the past except the "drummer" never comes in with a shitty out of tune kit. So, while EZDrummer is more plug and play, SD requires one to actually mix the kit and that, IMO, is a great thing.
