Recently discovered this Blog entry on how to get an (essentially) free discount for Kontakt:
Thought it might get a mention in the next Live Stream.
John has mentioned this in many past livestreams.
Native Instruments "Summer of Sound" sale is happening. I've been using Kontakt Player but looking forward to getting Kontakt (Full Version) to support and buy VST Libraries from smaller, independent developers (some are a one-man show). I'm able to upgrade to Komplete 13 for $249.50 (68 instruments which includes Kontakt full version). Kontakt (Full Version) by itself is normally $399 or $199 on sale so an extra $50 bucks is a no-brainer for the Komplete 13 bundle.
Yeah. I only wanted Kontakt for pianos but the price difference for Komplete was minimal (to me). I bought it during the Summer of Sound Sale a few years back as part of the hardware deal where I got the S61mk2 with Komplete.
Ableton Live 10, Omnisphere, Native Instruments (Pianos), Spire, Hammer + Waves, Heavyocity (Ascend and Mosaic Keys), Diva, SynthMaster, Alchemy 1.55, Addictive Keys, Unify
Grabbed the $99 sale/coupon for K13 Select, then it allowed me to grab K13 Standard for another 199, thus 300 bucks from scratch for K13 Standard.
