That all has nothing to do with his analogy- how can you claim that the price of Komplete is artificially low because it forces people to buy NI's hardware, when it does no such thing?
So you're saying either Komplete is a bunch of cheapo softs or they are subsidizing it for other reasons. Let's please assume latter. What reason would NI have to sell Massive etc. for a few bucks each, if not a vast branding campaign? And why would they do that if not to increase revenue with their main products, Traktor controllers, audio interfaces and Maschine?
I'm sorry, but Komplete is the best value for money out there. You do however get into their database (maybe I should have used Google/Youtube as an analogy, but I didn't want to come across like a conspiracy theorist)
Maybe one day, if we ever manage to build Diva controllers, we'll sell Diva for 10 bucks and our controllers for 1000.
