I'm not sure which version of Komplete 12 I started with, but I DID have to purchase the UCE upgrade, so I think I'm good to go right?
You should check which version you are using as a base. If your upgrade is from Kx-Ultimate (can be K8-U ..... K12-U), then the 50% price is ~300€ (298 in Thomann). It is worth it.

If your base version is K2....K12 (not ultimate), then the price is considerably higher, the procedure is not so attractive at 458€, it would be better to just purchase the K12U-CE to K13U-CE Update (about 500€ everywhere). You'd save 41€ in the case of Thomann. Ah, well, in this case it might be worth it, you could resell your Kx to K12UCE upgrade at a better price than KxU to K12UCE.

Ok I am really confused. I have K12UCE. Can I take advantage of this madness somehow still?

If I understand this right, even though I own K12UCE, I buy the upgrade AGAIN, and I will receive the upgrade to 13 for free? Thanks guys! You people are heroes!
Yes, you can indeed take advantage of this IF you have a base version for your K12U CE which you can upgrade to K12U CE (again). If you only have K12U CE, unfortunately, there is no advantage here. Hope you got my point. If not, I can explain again if you give some more info of what bundles you have and how are they bought (update/upgrade).

Just look at your account, you will know right? It is important to know this for the best resolution.

If you have K12U CE Upgrade, it means you could have standard or ultimate previously, so it should work fine. As long as you have the qualifying base version in your account, you could resell the existing K12U CE Upgrade for cheap and then buy one more K12U CE Upgrade now to get K13U CE for free.

Yes, register by 30th September to be eligible for automatic update/upgrade to K13. Else, you will need to contact NI.

With all the time zone differences, I would recommend registering by 29th to be on safer side. I did on 14th, so I don't mind even if they release NOW. ;)

However, NI being in Germany, I think it will be formally released on 1st October only, post their lunch.

I ordered my K12U update yesterday at noon from Thomann and still haven't heard anything...I am starting to wonder if these units have been pulled!!

K12U is on a 'hard drive' so if you buy 12 you have to download a lot of content (if you buy 13 the you have it all on HD as a back and save download time) so there is a good reason the K12U should be sold off cheaper IMHO....

All the audio demos are excellent, but just can't get enough of the first one, New Horizons. Absolutely beautiful and it is quite emotive too. Wondering who has done it?

Is the 'quartet' included with KU13 or just the violin?

Thank you. :)

With the orchestral and cinematic libraries included in K13U CE, I think any type of soundtrack can be done with ease. So much so that it might inspire me create this type of music again or at least inspire me to use these instruments in the genre I want/am doing now.

Hi all, i'm really curious about that price tag cut buying K12UCE at thomann or other dealers. In my NI account i have K9U Crossgrade, K10U Update, K11U Update e K12UCE Upgrade for K8U-K12U. So i wonder if i can buy another K12UCE at reduced price at thomann and get the free update to K13UCE since the normal price at NI is 499€ (really high imho).
