OK- this is crazy, so based on:

https://www.gear4music.com/Recording-an ... -K11U/2NUR

I already own KU12 - so if I buy the KU12 update 'again' I get a free upgrade to KU13 for 170, but if I buy the upgrade from KU12 to KU13 it costs me 360....

Do you think I need to check with NI that I can register the upgrade twice!
Should be OK, but I would suggest checking with NI first before ordering for this particular case.
Never imagined we would get to play with toys in adulthood. :)

I'm curious to hear the new cello. I will probably upgrade from K11U to 13 Collectors at the inevitable 50% off sale next year if those solo strings are sounding good.
If you can spend right now, just get the K12U CE Upgrade (from K8-11U) from Thomann. Register it before 1st October and get K13U CE for free. This is confirmed news. It's almost 50% deal and you do not need to wait too.
Where this confirmation comes from? i tried to google about it and search Native Instruments forum, apearently there is nothing said about this :)

The confirmation comes when you ask on chat support, which is live as I said. They are too busy though, so hang on.

Thanks, I will do just that. Really appreciate the previous post about the hack to get it cheaper! I wasn't going to upgrade but just bought it now.


PS I confirmed with NI support as well and saved the transcript.

TBH, I don't think it works that way. How do you want to activate a K12 upgrade for K12?
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Ditto ;-)

''You can not buy Komplete 12 Ultimate through our websop. If you find it at a retailer and register in September, you will get a free update to Komplete 13 Utlimate''.

I did t ask but I suspect you will be able to sell your original K12 Upgrade if you buy another!

Awesome! Now just ensure to register it as soon as you get it. :tu:

Actually, the original source for this seems to be Audio Plugin Deals group on Facebook. Then, it flowed down to VIC and then here apparently. leo007 was the first source of this information for me, so many thanks to him.

Yes, as long as you have a base version for your latest update/upgrade. For me, K8U is the ultimate base version (pun intended), which I'll never sell. :wink:

It is a K12 ultimate upgrade from K11 ultimate (which was an upgrade from something else...), I will just active the new upgrade again from K11 Ultimate (so I will have paid for the K12 upgrade twice), I asked NI if I can do this from NI and they said yes.

So I have ordered 'another' K12 Ultimate upgrade from Thomann just now for £170, should (once registered) be converted to a full KU13 in October :-)

Fantastic thanks!!! Now Thomann seems to offer the upgrade from Komplete 2-12 to Komplete 12 Ultimate (UPG 1) for 282 € which is slightly less than 50 percent of what I would pay for 13 Ultimate. I'll really have to double check, but NI chat support has just confirmed this to me.

Oh damn, in my case it seems to have worked... But maybe I just did not notice that it's sold out.

Thomas has 12U CE for half off right now? Otherwise upgrading to 12 or 13 CE is the same price. Also what country Thomann?
