Does anyone know if I can install with the key of Kontact 6 also Kontakt 5 to have the Database? Or no Downgrade possible? Native does not respond to any Requests.
Don't think so, no. What database are you after that you wouldn't get with Kontakt 6?

Uncle E
the description of the TH-U American Classics only shows British amplifiers... I´m guessing it is an error?
Thanks! Fixed:

The sale of warez'd plugins on eBay is really going rampant these days. Just got an official eBay marketing email advertising the sale of a "Windows-only version of Dune 3 (instant delivery)" for $5.99. So much to buyer protection on eBay.

I was still on the Knowledge that the Database for Example with own Sounds is still out - my Fault, sorry. For me now, nothing speaks against a Crossgrade. Thx :-)

It turns out I can't really tell the difference between Kontakt 5 and 6...
Yeah... I was kind of tempted by the kontakt 6 upgrade... As a developer of Kontakt instruments I was hoping for more, much more. And as a user I was hoping for something better too. At best, I would say this is a point release for Kontakt 5 not a whole new version that requires money to upgrade. Quite disappointing if I'm honest.
In the end I want to be on the newest release to get all the bug fixes, so for me it was basically a maintenance fee.

Also they continue to develop new features into 6. That's the reason I will update to k12 from k11u. Massive X will be a goodie.

When will k13 be released approximately? Mid 2020?

If they stick with their traditional release cycle, it should be late 2020.

Not sure if buyer protection can account for stupidity. If you see Dune 3 for such a low price, it should ring all bells. Just like a $100 Rolex.

And, if noone reports the seller, i doubt the system could automatically ban him/her based on the sale. After all, it's your decision whether you want to sell Dune 3 for $100, or $5.99. That's generally an issue on eBay. People don't question when someone offers Windows 10 for $9.99. They just buy it, and are happy about their "deal of the century".

I hardly use eBay anymore. It's a hoard for scammers, and people who mistake it for a bazaar. It used to be a very nice place, but, now it's sh** for the most part of it.

To be fair, they've given free point updates for kontakt 5 for, how long? 7 years?
I think they deserve some update fee once in a while.

Uncle, how long is the deal on nova good for? I need to mess around with the regular version a bit more before I commit to the GE.

They sometimes send out coupons and JRR has a shop there. It is one of the few possibilities to get additional discounts on certain "sale-resistant" plugins. :)

I mostly buy used books, craft stuff and costume jewelry there. Never had a problem, but I also don't expect it to be the best stuff. I guess it depends on what you are looking for and how much you want to pay.

If it's too good to be true it's usually not kosher stew. One of the rules of life.


I saw some guy selling Ableton Suite 10 for $50 on eBay. Not eligible for future upgrades and digital download only. But when you check the seller feedback, it's some guy from Russia selling cracked software from music to office. :)

Yep, yet i see so many write in forums that they got a Windows 10 key for 10 €, or a Office Pro Plus key (which is the most expensive version of MS Office...) for a tenner. Yeah, right. :roll:

TBH, i think they all deserve to get their developer keys, or keys bought with stolen credit card data banned by Microsoft. The reality is that many get away with it, though (well, usually not with keys bought with stolen credit card data...). Microsoft can also not ban every single illicit Windows 7 copy in China or India.
