Hi, Unity, Lunaris 2 and Groth are being offered free to new purchasers of Komplete 14. Will current owners of Komplete 14 be able to take advantage of this offer?

Thanks!

    Yeah , that was my first thought , I mean I wish , but I am rather sure that things do not work that way !

    The way that stuff like that works are through campaigns and what you are seeing is an offer to get something with your purchase if you buy within the given time slot. In that time slot then price for the product that gives the extra stuff is set at whatever price and also what the other company that supplies the extra stuff gets is taken out of the price of in this case the Komplete 14 bundle !

    So what we see is Native Instruments campaigning to give people a reason to buy their product at this particular time at what price is set now ! And Native Instruments most likely gives some of the proceeds to the other company. Reason why N.I. feel that they can share most likely is because bundles are sold at full price at the moments.

    There are other concerns that I do not feel like discussing or divulging but it ought to suffice to say that at any given time or at any moment in time then you and I may have this or that reason to move to do the actual purchase of whatever in question but if you take another moment in time then while you still might have wanted to buy then your reason to move to do the actual purchase might have been another. That's just how stuff works, you receive an offer with a perceived value and/or a perceived advantage and you make a decision. So while you at this point in time may think that you did not get this or that back when you bought then you most likely had another perceived advantage or reason that you after having had satisfied either thinks not matters or may have forgotten.

    In any case, no matter how much we would like to get all future advantages from future purchase decisions then the likelihood that we get it is slim to none ! (N.I. would have to take money out of their pocket to pay the other company for our licenses) We got what we got ! Personally I got my bundle upgrades on sales , others might have bought at full price when it were all new and hot and had that advantage (an 'advantage' I were too poor to have !)

    I'm going to echo some of what @PoorFellow wrote but if you already own K14 since a while and did not purchase it like super close to the announcement of this campaign then you would not receive additional instruments. This is a time specific offer and applicable on purchases made during that time.

    Hey, I see you're offering free fries with every burger. I bought a burger last week. I want free fries!

    😁

    You'd think maybe there'd be a discounted offer at least?

    You're in luck, we happen to have a few fries left over from last week. 😂

    Probably not, being them from other companies (not that NI never make offers on third parties, but since they are already in that bundle…)

    I notice there's another thread started up - someone else wants their free fries!

    As Josh Gates would say.....UN-believable. 🤣

    Thanks for the reply. That's understandable. Will there be an opportunity for a discounted or full purchase of the plugins for current owners?

    The misunderstanding here is that it is not something that is given to bundle buyers as part of their bundle or being part of the K 14 bundles going forward. This is something given to people with their bundle as promotional activity when buying not as part of their bundle !

    Had it been something given as part of the bundle with the same version number and tier as yours then I am sure that you would have received yours too !

    Don't get me wrong , I'd really like to have the stuff too as part of my already purchased bundle but that is not how it is or how stuff works !

    Discount option to purchase any or all 3 would be great.

    Even better, let existing users be able to choose 1 for free and still discount for the others.

    But...still a great deal for the new folk! :)

    These types of promotions always cause backlash, but music software companies keep doing them.
