I'm about ready, really, if Reaktor doesn't work right now it's not in any of my recent templates.
PITA because I have to create a Time Machine backup onto a mechanical drive, which is an overnight proposition, from bed.

K13 : Guitar Rig 6 Pro, Raum, Super 8, Session Guitarist – Electric Sunburst
And Kontakt 6.
Plus I think it includes another "Discovery" library?

As I mentioned before, just the upgrades to GR6 & K6 seem worth it.
(But I'm still on the fence.)
imho, it was K12 :
K12 : Choral, Discovery Series - Middle East, Flair, Kontakt 6, Massive X, Phasis, Scarbee Vintage Keys, Session Strings 2, TRK-01
Just checked, I have K12 and it's Kontakt 5, Guitar Rig 5 & Reaktor 6.
Discovery Series is now called Global and they've added Cuba to K13 atop the K12 lineup of India, Middle East & West Africa.

The rest I have little to no interest in.

I have Kontakt 6 player.
But the full version is 5.
Battery, Absynth, FM8, Massive are all the same as when I started with them @ K9. (Except for minor system updates.)
Specifically, AFAICS, the upgrades you get going from 12 to 13 are Kontakt (full) and Guitar Rig. And then some other products added that weren't in 12, but were available individually at that time.

If you have K12 and not Kontakt 6 something is wrong with your account. Like all the people above I am on 12 and have the full version of Kontakt 6

Just redownload and installed Kontakt 6, and indeed, it is the full version now.
So there possibly was a problem in my account before when it only showed as the Player.

Thanks to all for getting me to check this. Of course, now I have even less reason to upgrade, and I'll now just consider upgrading Guitar Rig at half the price. Or maybe I'll wait and see what K14 offers when it comes.

Again, thanks!

I think the upgrade is still worth it, if one compares the total price of the additional plugins versus the upgrade price.

Only if you would need and use those… My upgrade from 11 to 13 was it, mainly for Kontakt 6 as more and more libraries require it…

Komplete 13's upgrades still work on Catalina on a mac? Or do I need Big Sur? Thank you.
Everything will work fine in Catalina, don't worry.

I'm on Win7 too and reading this made me worry - I really want K13 (from K11). So... I launched NA and installed Kontakt 6 player... and all went smooth - 6.5.3 is here without problems. Have you tried re-installing it?

Anyone here with K13 on Win7 or knows how to make sure that it works?
