Very likely during summer. The previous sale was in June.

Ah ok, thanks.
But normal uk price from NI is £499 and I've just seen it for £438 from a reseller (physical copy) so I doubt the sale price direct from NI is less than that even during a sale is it?

Its weird how the pricing works, how the physical copy from a reseller is less than the download direct from source, it was the same with Omnisphere: a physical copy was £50 cheaper than a direct download from Spectrasoncs!

Last June I got a discounted Kontakt 6 crossgrade for £104 which I then upgraded to Komplete 12 Ultimate for £399. The Komplete crossgrade is currently £849 and the Kontakt crossgrade is £224 so both products were discounted by over 50%.

Have you installed their free collection and demos? You can tackle the learning curve on several guis ahead of time, if you do. And most non-kontakt demos
run 30 minutes before needing a restart. Lots of time can be saved,
and some productivity activated before the summer sale.

And the sale lasts for a good while, giving the new beta tes_ er, I mean
customers, a chance to find and report any issues. Really little point to
rush in the first day, especially with the free players at hand, and
a gazillion youtube tutorials so marinade in :hyper:

How old is Komplete 12? Are we expecting v13 anytime soon?

Yeah, the Summer of Sound happens in July usually, 50% off.

I doubt I'll go for v13 anyway, it'd mean a new HDD is necessary. Ugh.

Indeed, I managed to pick up (a few years ago) 10 Ultimate physical edition for less than £250. Which was shockingly cheap. So much so, I spent about a day before checking into the site to make sure it was legit (which it was).

It does pay to shop around and do some research before buying any software.

yeah ifyou can find a cheap licence for absynth/reaktor/kontakt...
they do crossgrades to komplete that save a fortune.even outside of sale time.
i had reaktor, wanted kontakt (i also had absynth but sold that when i got komplete as i didnt use tgat licence for the crossgrade) and i was about to buy kontakt, when i saw that for an extra 50 quid at the time, i could go to komplete 9 and gets syuff like massive and the extra reaktor stuff, plus a load of nice pianos :)

K12 was released in October 2018 but Massive X, which was included, didn't actually come out until much later. It's rare for them to go much more than 2 years between Komplete versions but because of the Massive X delay, I wouldn't be surprised if this one had a bigger gap.
Here are the release details (and other info on other tabs):

System: Windows 10, Dell XPS 2-in-1, Bitwig 3, Steinberg UR44.

Noire is the only VI I am interested in that is not included into K12.
How big is the chance that it will be included in regular K13 based on prior history? NI usually includes all pianos into regular Komplete, right?
I am on crossroad: either upgrate to K12 and buy Noire separately during this summer sale, or wait for K13 which might not include Noire (or have it included only in Ultimate).

May I add that this is also true if you are a license holder of Maschine, this is how I got the Komplete crossgrade!
Komplette Standard for 200€ during a sale. I didn’t had much ni stuff at that time (no absynth, Reaktor, kontakt...), so it is basically a no brainer if you already got Maschine. :wink:
