Lots of companies have let new product info leak out.. but not NI.

Wonder if the scheduled website maintenance on Jan 22 is part of a reveal.. guess we'll know soon.

Big New Kontakt Product?

Big Maschine Update?

Big MIDI 2.0 update for S-Mk3 keyboards?

    the big players have done their moves, we as NI fans want something hugeeeee here, even yamaha came from nowhere surprising the niche of TE. Guys on NI please replay with something related to Maschine stand alone or something like MPC stems , you have melodyne under your hood, do something integrated to maschine software please.

    Welp.. NAMM starts on Jan 25... two days from this posting.

    Nothing new from NI has been mention officially yet.. or leaked out.

    I hope there might still a surprise.

    Check the exhibitors list. Native Instruments are not exhibiting. They don't have a stand.

    All they have is a private meeting room.

    Haven't been to a NAMM show for a few years, but private meeting rooms can be better than a stand on the floor..

    And in either case, something new could still be happening.. but I have doubts that anything is ready.

    Rather a point upgrade though. I guess they needed something for NAMM.

    Don't expect anything.

    Correct me if I am wrong, NI has always released his new hardware and major software updates in the 4th quarter of the year. I doubt we see anything significantly before that time (though I hope I'm wrong).

    In September or October we will get Komplete 15, that's almost a guarantee. Other than that, anyone's guess is as good as mine.

    Unless NI changed the business model along with their logo it’s a no go for NAMM. They’ve never released anything during this time with possibly an evoucher and even that’s nothing to hold your breath for.

    Native Instrument big NAMM 2024 reveal:

    “Surprise! Your software and products don’t work anymore! See you in 2025!”

    Their NKS implementation is a bit basic though, OK for performance but not for deeper sound design or more expressive playing, so I made an extended template and also updated all the factory patches with it - in the NKS User Library/Arturia folder (left the Factory 4 extended library there too for anyone who hasn't yet upgraded)

    Just checked the NAMM map... NI's "private" meeting room is on the main floor and about 5 times the size of Arturia's nearby booth space

    I'm not sure that is real. It would be interesting to see if it is, though it would also be a bummer if that is why M+ hasn't had a real update in a long while.
