Hi,

if I buy an older Komplete version like Komplete 12, are the versions of the libraries included bound to their respective version of the Komplete bundle like it is done with the Arturia Collections?

Thanks

    If the major version has changed, than you will not get the new one, but the last version of the previous major version.

    If major version has not changed, you get the latest/current version.

    Because only few plugins change major version (Reaktor, Battery, Kontakt, Guitar Rig, ..) and not always, you generally get mostly current versions of plugins.

    For example, users of Komplete 12 get current updates of NI plugins for native Apple Silicon and VST3.

    So, most plugins will be current version, few older version. But it is possible to buy update for those single plugins, if needed. Or one may buy update for K12 to make it K14. Better to wait for Summer Sale...
