I am a NI fanboi and I don't recall the initial price being an intro offer.

Who would choose Repro-5 over Super8 if they could only keep one?
I would, in a heartbeat. For many reasons, but most of all I appreciate that Urs puts poly aftertouch in his instruments and NI doesn’t seem to be aware of such things. :?

Me neither... :scared: :roll:
Strange move done by NI.
Was on my buying list for BF.
However, now I wait for the 50% upgrade to Komplete 13.
I have enough alternatives to play with...

I think you're being a bit unfair here. Nobody is saying it doesn't sound analogue, or how much analogue it is. We're just discussing the sound itself, and how we perceive it. It happens I think it's kinda flat, and v1o agrees with me, that's all. Matter of taste, I guess we all still can have our own (and talk about it), can't we?
Not when it comes to u-he. :x Thou shalt not speak an ill word of any u-he creation or thee fanbois will come out from the shadows to rip into anyone and everyone that dares to show anything less than pure adulation! Heaven help he/she that isn't completely awestruck!

Love Repro though.

I love Repro too, as well as Zebra and DIVA. I don't have an issue with u-he, they make some excellent plugs. I just think u-he fanbois are ridiculous. :hihi:

No I'm not ridiculous, I mean...(cough...cough) no they're not! :hihi:

Seriously though, I haven't tried Super 8 yet, but I have FM8, the original MASSIVE, Kontour, and the older Battery 3 too. Great products. :)

Has anyone ever paid 'full list price' for any single instrument from NI? There pricing policy seems to be honed to direct you to the 'supurb value' of Komplete over the comparatively high price put on some of the individual instruments.

It's all being set up for subscription (isn't everything!)....access 'One Million Dollars' worth of instruments for just $9.99 a month....
i7 Win 10 PC+ Surface, BWS V3, StudioOne 4, Cubase 10, Live 9 suite, X32 Desk. , DM12, Odyssey, P8, Virus TI, 500hp Eurorack, Elektron A4, RYTM, Heat, Digitone, Deluge, OP-Z, Mother+DFAM, Drums, Guitars, Basses and Amps

I am in Canada and the prices reflect local currency. I guess my question was, was it always $149 Euros?

99? Wow, suddenly it became not worth its price, imho
Ah well. I was considering it for the lower price since I don't really need another synth, and could rationalize it as being "close to $50" as opposed to the $100 level. Maybe when I finally upgrade Komplete 12 in 2+ years 'll get some use out of it.

I used a NI voucher and purchased the Super 8 for cheap. I never bonded with the instrument. One of my VST/AU regrets. I find Diva (and especially Zebra) much more to my musical taste.
