Free update to Komplete 13 if you register a (BOXED?) Komplete 12 during September

Recommended Posts

I’m not sure of the terms and if it has been verified by NI, but some stores seem to have this info. ”For September only, register your Komplete 12 product with Native Instruments and qualify for a free update to the equivalent Komplete 13 version!” https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/product/180906332233008--native-instruments-komplete-12-ultimate-upgrade-komplete-8-12

FREE UPGRADE TO KOMPLETE 13 VERSION IF REGISTERED IN SEPTEMBER 2020

Same here. Slurped up the 100 buk upgrade a month before and out of the grace period for the free upgrade. Wisdom says to wait til the last minute before impulsively firing up the plastic card..

I did the $99 upgrade to k12 a month ago too but I don't care. All I care about out of komplete anyway is Kontakt 6 and Reaktor 6 and the standard massive and FM8 et al. I elected not to even install most of what came w/ k12, so. I'd only be pissed if this was a free upgrade to ultimate cuz then I woulda got NOIRE for free but it wasn't that so who cares

I purchased my upgrade from ultimate 10 to ultimate collectors 12 from Thomanns in Germany.  

It only took a few days to get to Arizona and I have registered it.   

I  can only hope the free update happens...nothing shows at NI yet on my account....

a good time to upgrade?

E.g., https://www.scan.co.uk/products/native-instruments-komplete-12-ultimate-music-production-software-collection-upg-k8-12

even though it is ~$130 more expensive than a K12 -> K13 update it is probably a better deal

I have K12 and that's a great price to go to K13U! In my NI account K13U upgrade is £499 😵 

My K13 Update price is £169 at NI so if the Scan price is right that's only another £80 to go to K13U!

Wondering if that Scan price a mistake? EDIT: Maybe not as it's the same price at Gear4Music

https://www.gear4music.com/Recording-and-Computers/Native-Instruments-Komplete-12-Ultimate-Upgrade-from-K8-K12/2NUM 

That's a great deal as it includes many libraries I bought separately and could therefore sell on to make it an even sweeter deal. 🤔

It's only the boxes that are a deal.  I ordered from Thomann and it should arrive next week sometime.  It's costing me about $23 more than it would cost if I wait until the next 50% off sale. (for shipping)  If you have a 0 transaction fees card, it is the better way to go.  Paypal was going to charge another $5 or so. (I still use Paypal, I just pay in Euros)

I just bought 12CE upgrade from 12U. I’m intrigued by the new stuff In K13CE.  Honestly don’t know if I have enough SSD space for everything but the way i see it is I paid $200 for 11U to 12U. So now 12U to 12CE (with free update to 13CE) for  $299 gives me a bunch of new plugins that on their own are $99 to $200 each even on sale.  This is cheaper than the NI upgrade offer they are promoting that is $300 more ($599) so seems like a steal.

Can you use the boxed hard drive which comes with the collectors edition to install Komplete on if reformatted? Does anyone know the speeds?

They're mechanical disks and even though they're USB3, I think you'll feel a little regret if you use it as your samples drive. Might be good as an extra backup drive though.

I registered my KOMPLETE 12 Update yesterday. I received a $25 voucher, but nothing with a mention of a FREE UPDATE to KOMPLETE 13 when it's released in October. Can anyone who registered their KOMPLETE  12 weigh in and share whether or not they received a message stating that they'll receive a FREE UPDATE to KOMPLETE 13?  Because I'm wondering if there was something I missed doing and need to do. 

Thanks.
