I'm in as well. Very cutting-edge stuff! I hope we get lots more people to buy in so we can get to higher levels!

We have hit the targets every time in the past, so fingers crossed. It always tends to go a bit slow at the start until a few levels are unlocked :) maybe I’ll swap the levels around a little tomorrow, I’m due to send a mail out in the next couple of days.

I wonder if it has to do with the fact that a lot of people are still on Kontakt 5 and haven’t upgraded to 6 yet?

Was going to ask if this works in Kontakt 6 player as I'm still on K5 having skipped Komplete 12 in the hope v13 has something more compelling?

According to the website:

"Most Kontakt Instruments Require the Full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 6."

No kontakt player libs (would be ridiculous at that prize, I think NI will charge more for the player license then this), only full version.

Kontakt 6 might be an obstacle but lot of functions in the instruments now (like the new sample drag and drop, new effects) are only kontakt 6.

I hope it might get more interest when all this BF/winter/hollidays stuff is mostly gone now, even if christmas is coming.

Yes, I’m exploiting all of the new K6 features. I should be able to make the Midi only Instruments K5 compatible, but all of the wavetable Instruments have to be K6 only. The full version of K6 is required as well.

I hope the lack of K6 adoption does not impede the success of this GB. Perhaps it will encourage more people to upgrade to K6!

I've joined these GB's in the past, but the requirement for Kontakt 6 is a deal breaker for me.
A well-behaved signature.

If you have Kontakt 5 you know your going to get V6 eventually, just look at the group buy as an investment to use at a later date :tu: You know it make sense :D

There had been very quiet times in all groupbuys but this really looks a little bit like "dead on arrival" :(

And it wont make sense to post in some other forums like I did all the years before when there is not at least the second instrument in it.

One small thing Andy: I dont know how much people regularly look on your homepage (like I do from time to time inbetween the groupbuys) but it might be helful if they could find a link to the groupbuy there, not only under "products" like now.

What really makes me worry a bit: I dont think that from now on till begin of next year much will happen cause of christmas and evrything, so the time to get this start running a bit was really inbetween the BF, the official start and now (till maybe next weekend), but it does not seem that after the "alltime" joiners before the official start much had happened. :(

So I think somehow we have to make it to the second instrument and then start advertising a bit.

Sorry people, it’s more my fault, here in the UK we have been going through unprecedented & terrible times. I don’t want to get political here, but it’s really been dominating all of our lives and left a lot of us in grief and shock. I don’t want to talk about it here, but just so that you all know I will be putting much more effort and time into the GB from now on in the coming days, and will get the GB back on track. Please no political discussion, I’ve had enough of that Lately to last a lifetime and really want this thread to stay on track about the Group Buy.
