So i recently visited a music store, where somehow they still have a piece of Komplete 13 Collectors Edition. I am thinking of buying it. The question is, if i buy and install it, what will happen to the Kontakt 7 player that is already installed (since I have komplete 14 select)? Will it stay the same and make everything a demo thing or will Kontakt 6 also be there? I hope I'm making the question clear.

    @Joshua Lepcha For NI libraries, only Kontakt player is needed, so if you wish to use Kontakt 7 Player you can, it will not put your NI Kontakt libraries in demo mode. If you have 3rd party libraries that require the full version of Kontakt then only you would need Kontakt 6 (full version). I hope that answers your question.

    You will own both Kontakt 6 and Kontakt 7 Player then.

    Not sure if this is still the case or has been fixed, but Kontakt 7 has (or had?) the habit of taking over Kontakt 6 instances in Komplete Kontrol (source). That's one thing to be wary of.

    Yes, that is what I'm concerned about.
