I would love to take advantage of the Korg upgrade offer (I own the Legacy Collection). But apparently I'm not smart enough to figure out how to get the upgrade coupon required. Their system makes the tax code look simple. :)

Go to their website. Login to your account. Go to Account Information. Click on "Offers From Korg" - see coupon code.

They actually have several websites, Korg User Shop, Korg ID, etc. I have tried several times and just about given up. I'm not the only one - KVR has plenty of threads on their confusing websites and processes. Glad it worked for you.

Guys (particularly those who have Legacy Coolection v1, without Odyssey, Triton etc) a'm not really understand what exactly code do you mean and for what ?
As i see, need just open Korg shop page
https://korg.shop/software/korg-collect ... ducts.html
and simple choose variant that suitable for upgrade from your v1. That will be costs 199$. What is displayed identically, without logging into an account, and after logging into it.
All simple.
Or am I missing something?

Edit: Oh i figured out. It's (code) need for "Proceed to checkout".

At Checkout it says you have to enter a coupon. I cannot find a way to get the coupon, thought I've owned the Legacy Collection for more than ten years. It directs me to the old Korg User Net site, where I click on Upgrade Coupon. Then I'm told, "Sorry, there is no upgrade coupon for you. Users who have registered 6 KLC products (MS-20, Polysix, Mono/Poly, M1, WAVESTATION and MDE-X), or M1 Le are eligible for this upgrade offer." I don't get it, because the upgrade in my Cart is for the Legacy Collection bundle, which I own.

I try to find Support. I find a link: Please contact us here. It's a dead link. And a dead end.

So you don’t have a login at the korg.shop website? That’s where I got the coupon.

If not, there seems to be a support email form here…

I think Korg legacy collection owners have to first register/transfer registration from the old user.net site to the new korg site. Once that is done I think the coupon shows up on the old .net site for use in the korg.shop site. Crazy ain’t it!

I dont get where people here are coming from at all regarding Komplete upgrades and their value. Do folks make music? I really wanted Noire so I went from Komplete Ultimate CE 12 to 13 and for $250 I got: ( I play Guitar and have Maschine.)
SUPER 8
.....
WARPED SYMMETRY

How is this not amazing value? What am I missing from the comments I've seen such as "meh". Also my voucher got me Glaze for $25 , a very good vocal vst. I really want to know what I dont see that you folks see

Now you mention it I think I did that a couple of years ago as I needed to do it before I could download updated versions of the plugins.

Thanks to the guy who posted this on the bargain thread. I would have missed it otherwise. Grabbed it late last night, I had a really nice evening with it today, so much fun. Got some really great tones out of it. I only used the tse-808 during the end of my jam just to play around with tones etc. It took it well. I wish I had a strat over here to check some single coil sounds too. But for 20 euros this was a no brainer. I hope they will have the same offer on the jmp one as well.

"PLEXI19" to snag Softube Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959 with $19, today only.

https://www.softube.com/marshall-plexi
Looks like a great deal and I like the initial (amp sim - only) sound but I only got crap out of it when combining it with pre-sim pedals ?!?
E.g. I'd have to put a gain reduction plugin between a booster pedal and this one to not overload the sims input ... which pretty much negates the use of the booster. :?
Any tips on how to combine it with other stuff - or work with it in general ?

Does Krotos allow license transfers?

Yes. At first you have to use the migration code to move from old Korg license system to the new one. After that your will get the upgrade code.

@Uncle E, I don't know if you saw my question. More specifically I'd like to know how long it will be part of the group buy on JRRshop. What I said about Sonible studio bundle is also true for smart bundle. Can you confirm it's the last version (with smart eq 3) that is on sale?
Thank you for asking. This is now fixed. It is the latest version:

I still prefer mic'ing up my 15W practice amp... Admittedly, I'm not a guitarist, so please take all I said with a grain of salt, 'cause I discussed this matter on UAD forum and some folks really loved those Marshall sims! ;)
I'm with you on this. I've been playing guitar for 34 years. Plugins are great when you're looking for a full range sound (compressor pedal->DI->modulation/delay/reverb) but it's still hard to beat a microphone on a speaker. I would even recommend miking up your studio monitors to smooth out your amp plugins.
