NI are offering the Kontakt crossgrade for €124,50. Dang ... guess I'll pull the trigger this time.

I'm on the fence right now because I can get the Komplete 11 Ultimate upgrade for $299.50

What's that?!?!?


At least one or two times before, Native Instruments have created a bundle with 10 Maschine Expansions for only $/€99



Oh my God that would be incredible.

They haven't done that in since 2015 ... I think Black Fridays are now our best bet. It was the only sale last year as well.
In 2015 there was the 9-99 aka Cloud 9 then the Black Friday sale.

Well, I might buy something simple from NI (one of the 4 Reaktor synths: Form, Spark, Rounds or Kontour), but not sure really as I have more than I need :o
I use mainly:
Windows 10 PC with Waldorf Blofeld as my synth/midi controller and HS7 as monitors.
Cubase 9 Pro with synths/instruments/effects mainly from u-he, Air, NI, Steinberg, Waves and Synapse Audio.

I used to always stick up for Waves but I think a lot of the plugins included with that bundle are just not as good as a lot of the competition.

The $2999 price is not a realistic appraisal of their value, it is the same kind of marketing bull that gets used by every huckster everywhere for everything.

And with Waves they actually use that price when you buy WUP later. I think they should use what you actually pay. Sort of a racket the way they do it.

I already spent too much (especially last October) and I really have almost everything I need (except a few cables and modules that I will build - I already have the material for the task).

I'm keeping an eye on Native Instruments promotions (just because it's that time of the year), but I think I will pass. It would be nice to have Kontakt, but I don't feel like spending almost 200 (by the way I could crossgrade to Komplete 11 for the same price because I'm a Maschine user, but the differences from Komplete Select are not that worth from me, I wouldn' take much advantage from those additional tools in my music). Maybe I'll get a Maschine expansion if I hear some interesting drums (but I'm really unsure because currently I'm more into drum machines than sampled drums... and I already have lots of samples).

I would upgrade to Halion 6 if Steinberg applies a big discount, but I don't think this could happen.

There's also the intro pricing on the MangledVerb plugin... I already have it on my H9, but I haven't spent any time with it (... when I say I have everything I need...); the plugin would be convenient but I could justify it only if I were using it a lot, so I think I'll spend some time playing with the algorithm (just to see if it's something for me, even if I'm not a fan of distorted sounds), but I will probably pass on this item, too.

The only thing I really need right now is PatchBase to edit my D-05 (but I have to figure out how to handle he midi routing in my studio first). And a new computer for the studio (but not soon, I'll wait at least a few months).ù
Also promotion on Cubasis for iOS would be nice because then I could upgrade my LE and get some useful features (by the way, I never used it untill now; I prefer using my pc when I'm in the studio). I don't need it, of course...


I'm happy that my wishlist is almost empty and it's gong to stay so for a while (by the way it's also a strage feeling).

You want the Ultimate upgrade, seriously. I did the math on the last sale. Even buying used you don't have to make use of very many of the products before it becomes awesome value. The used prices on the ultimate products seem to be a bit higher on average than the standard products.
