Just watch out NI website for the 50% sale. It is imminent and might just start today. If we go by the previous years (2017), this must be the Thanksgiving XXL sale where even Komplete updates/upgrades are 50% off.
Yeah, that's probably my best bet, and what I'm counting on. But it feels like every time I'm thinking about it, they have a sale but that particular sale doesn't include upgrades.

The good news is that I'm not in a hurry. It would be purely a luxury upgrade. But still would be nice to get up to date on things.

Yes, especially if you are on Komplete 10 or below. I believe you will get the deal you are looking for. :tu:

This time I don't have anything on my NI wishlist, so I will just watch the sales page and close it. Or maybe get an Expansion... :)

Since BF is late than last year, I reckon the sale might get postponed by a week to 21st November. But I still have the feeling about it starting today.

Count me in for looking for Komplete upgrades. Though I don't need ultimate. Uncle E, do you get a feeling that NI will run another upgrade sale soon? Just upgrading regular Komplete 6 to 12, so my normal upgrade price is $199. It is not a need (my needs mostly revolve around Kontakt, so there has never been a reason for me to uograde), so a sale is necessary lol.
Yes, it will be any day now.

FWIW, I'm still on Komplete 9.

The most common 50% off upgrades sale from NI is in June or July, unfortunately. The Black Friday sales often are only on new products.

That's partly correct but they're doing things a little differently this year. One sale is starting this week and another is starting next week.

Looks like both my predictions will be true. :wink: At least the first one of 14th Nov. did not happen, damn!
:hyper: even when I don't have anything to buy from NI this time. :roll: Thanks, Uncle E!

Will we see Steinberg Absolute 4 or Halion 6 on sale Black Friday, or any time soon ?
I think we have some left over Halion and Absolute licenses. If we do, I can sell them at the previous sale prices.
Thanks, sounds very promissing, please be vocal in case, and also I will try to keep the eyes open :-)

What was the previous sale price for Absolute 4? Any chance there will be Black Friday sales by Steinberg? :)

UVI has a 50% off sale on iOS Ravenscroft, Beathawk ($5), and Beathawk expansion packs.

Apparently the Celtic expansion pack doesn't include any vocals?

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up. Will there be any additional discounts on JRR? No worries if not as I like to support you anyways, but it always helps!

And I am still on Komplete 6, lol. Though I do have a LOT of the libraries that come with the higher levels of Komplete anyways, and really just want the new and updated plugs.

In times past it's been this way, I believe. (Can't say it still is *for certain*, but chances are...)
A well-behaved signature.

I think you can only upgrade from Komplete 8 or later directly to Komplete Ultimate 12 with the retail version.
But if you upgrade directly with NI that may be different so login and check your account online.

If I remember correctly, you can pretty much upgrade from any Komplete to ultimate. It just costs more.

I just highlighted a relevant part of the text. :tu:
You can always upgrade by going via K6 -> K12 -> K12U, but that is more expensive as you said.
But, you may be able to go direct from K7 or older to K12U directly if you purchase via your NI account.
That's the impression I got but can't confirm now.

I am only wanting to upgrade to Komplete 12 standard. I have pretty much every library I would want from ultimate already, so I mostly need a few of the newer plugins and updated versions of the rest.

In my NI account, I can do that upgrade right now for $199, going from Komplete 6 to 12. So I think it will be fine.

Not sure how it works if I upgrade from a retailer like JRR Shop though. I'm assuming this one is what I would get though:

Maybe Uncle E can clarify though.
