1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes,

Any reason to keep old media?

    Hi all,

    Happy New Year! As I get a jump start on the new year by cleaning out my closet, I came across the boxes of Komplete 5 and 6 upgrade. I'm on K9 now... Is there any reason for keeping the old media/packaging? The serials are stored under my account page, and for the most part all of the software is the same, just updated (other than the few products in K5 that were discontinued).

    Just wondering if other people out there typically toss this stuff or keep it around for some reason that I'm not thinking of.

    I'd say in general that you never know if you might need one of the old installers one day (for old projects, etc.). Or if there are any applications or libraries which were discontinued and you want to keep.

    So I'd also suggest to keep at least the install-media: https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/keep-old-boxes-of-komplete.235186/
    And also make a backup (-list) of your serials, just in case.

    For an overview about the products in the different Komplete versions have a look at UltimateOutsider's comparison sheet: http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/2014/09/the-complete-history-of-komplete-all.html

    Without a serial, how useful is the media?
