Wasn't the K12/K12U in the last year's (2019) NI Summer of Sound sale? I though that the K13/K13U will be in this year (?)

I think the new versions are released around late Summer or Autumn and the Upgrades don't go half price until the following year at soonest.

K12 is the first version with Kontakt 6, so that's probably worth having. I've already seen a few (granted not many) third-party libraries that require 6. That's what finally got me to update from K9, at least, during last year's Summer of Sound.

i upgraded last yr to K12. nothing has been released that intrigues me so far. if anything, many other companies seem to be uping their game and giving NI serious competition. :-0

Best service has the best upgrade prices. My Essential to Editor upgrade was $275, a lot cheaper than anywhere else was selling it :)
Worth a look!

Native Instruments Sale "Summer of Sound"

50% OFF Komplete 12 Updates & Upgrades until end of June

https://www.bestservice.com/deals/ni_su ... _2531.html
Some prices look a bit off to me. For example: Komplete 12 Ultimate Update is $340, which is wrong, because normal update price is $399 and during Summer of Sound it is $199.

I got mine last time for $182.

For anyone interested, I would suggest to wait for some time for them to correct the prices.
Ultimate update $340
Ultimate upgrade $272

:dog:
Looks fixed now- the update price from K11U to K12U is 170GBP

As a K11U user I see absolutely nothing worth upgrading for, I cant ever remember feeling that way in the past.
I went from K10 to K12U last year, that was okay.
Next step to K13U seems to become interesting: a lot of new stuff has been released since that upgrade. But I'll wait for the 50% offer in 2021...
I started with K9U, skipped 10, picked up 11U,and was planning on waiting until 13. But then last year, T+S were selling hard copies for something like $120 for the upgrade. Couldn't beat the price. Shipping was quick too.

Hi - looking for the best price to go from CM Studio 4->5 - I got a great upgrade price going from essentials(?) to Studio 4 several years ago - iirc it was less then $100 US - anything really close to that right now; or is it just too soon - best to wait?

Isn’t it like cars, computers, mobile phones, operating systems?

Getting the very next available version is often not worth it, due to the number of features that already exist in the current version and the nature of incremental improvements?
