Spending $25 e-voucher code from Native Instruments
I bought a Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2 keyboard. It was not exactly cheap as a keyboard but it looks as if of good quality and apart from some minor reasons to confusion then I think that it's been a great experience so far and the keyboard comes with all sorts of software including Komplete Select 14 and a DAW. It's absolutely amazing and the support here is good. So this is all great , no regrets so far and it makes me 'day dream' and hope of one day getting a hopefully extremely great offer on KOMPLETE 14 COLLECTOR’S EDITION when I actually have the money - which I most certainly do not have now !
What I have now is a $25 e-voucher code from Native Instruments ! How cool is that I get something worth $25 from Native Instruments on top of getting everything else !... I mean that's what I thought , at least until I visited the shop and also read the conditions for using the voucher...
I turns out that the voucher do not appear as if it has any real use value. It's not really a gift but a ruse to make me spend more money - that I can not spend here now !
Anything and everything that I have seen that I want I either do not have support/use for , or it's twice the price of the voucher , or I can not use the voucher to pay !
I were browsing some , I dunno , presets or sounds for Massive X but then found out that I need Komplete Standard for having that (or stupidly spending money on standalone version) , then I found something nice third-party , but that was twice the price of the voucher. Oh ! , but then I thought , well , at least I can grab an extra PSU for my new keyboard (40 Watt PSU actually priced nice and with free shipping !) , but of course I can not use the voucher on hardware (as little as it can be used for upgrades).
Also , I haven't really bothered since it all seem to either cost at least twice the value of the voucher or it is something I would automatically get if upgrading the Komplete Select so why on earth would I want to spend any money on that ? , but at a glance it appears that there is not really anything of any interest that I could get using the $25 e-voucher code from Native Instruments to pay for the purchase.
But still ! , I will at least ask here if someone else has any good ideas about something that should be interesting to get that I could get using only the $25 e-voucher code from Native Instruments to pay ?
Otherwise ! , then maybe what Native Instruments ought to do is to make a list of 'expendable items' that new users could pick one of as real 'gift' to personalize user Komplete experience. Maybe from a list of something NI that otherwise would only come as part of Komplete Standard ? That of course would limit the social experience here if not everyone has exactly the same in library but on the other hand would create a real sense of 'gift' and 'choice'..
If the gift were a choice of something otherwise only from at least Komplete Standard then it would not really be lost as far as NI goes, since NI probably wants and expect all it's users to upgrade to at least Komplete Standard anyway - including what small part that they then already had been gifted as a welcome present/gift...
