K12 will be my final update.
Next possible Komplete update will happen with Kontakt 7 or Reaktor 7.
Even then it will be at least four years from now.
This will not likely to be enticing enough to rejoin the Komplete bandwagon.

Absynth has been abandoned so no longer looking forward to Absynth 6.
Melda Sound Factory may be a good Absynth replacement.

@Kalamata, I hate to say it, but I think I agree.

I'm not upset about it though. I just have enough content that I don't need all of the things they are offering.

Yes and No
The problem with absynth is mainly the crazy UI it has but the synthesis engine in it is quite robust IF you know how to work it.
I find MSF to be overwhelming and difficult even to make a simple psy bass sound with a snappy envelope to the filter cutoff, while in Absynth it's dead simple to make one.
With that I can see just how easy it is to make even more complex sounds since a Psybass is literally a lowpass saw wave with a snappy envelope.

Hmmm. Perhaps I should reconsider the idea that MSF can partially or fully replace Absynth. I should review the hype that MSF is getting. There other ways to make ambient music but Absynth was in my opinion at the top of that pyramid.

Any chance of individual instruments (Super 8 ) being on sale soon?
Not until Thanksgiving. As suggested, use e-voucher. It's a great synth IMO.

Guys, anyone else yet to get e-voucher?

It's been more than 24 hours for me having registered mine. Not that I have to use it for anything at the moment, but nothing more important to post right now. :wink:

Thanks for the update. I am going to put the serial number (a few times) again in NA to see if that triggers the e-voucher. ;)

Yeah, I will do that if I don't get it by Monday. The e-vouchers have never gone to spam (including now so far), but thanks for the tip.

Got my vouchers about a few hours after registering yesterday, so probably better you email support to ask what's up

There is a voucher section in your NI account so check there even if you haven't gotten an email. Might be there
