    Today certainly seems too late for a release;-(

    Probably Thursday.

    After reading all of that stuff about lay-offs I would assume that we get this free Expansion plus 2.9. (e.g. recording without fixed pattern size etc)

    But I am still holding my breath for 3.0 (even without new hardware announcements)

    Yeah. But I still hope things are normal at NI. More important than free Expansion and Maschine update is the future of the company, that too my favourite one in the music products scene.

    Did you read the forum lately? Things are not fine. They let go so many people. Biggest layoff in company history. Very sad for these individuals.

    Yes, I replied after reading that only. If you read my comment again, you can visualize my implicit concern. :)

    Well, I guess the future seems okay. The new statement on One NI strategy seems like a good move. No need to work in silos. Hopefully it doesn’t mean subscription only.

    Yeah, but where did you read the One NI statement? Link please?

    Even if it is subscription only in future, I wouldn't worry/care much. We already have so much (NI) stuff that will last for more than a life time. In fact, subscription would help to avoid GAS purchases. Of course, I am always excited for new NI products, but that might change if subscription model is adopted.

    And despite what everybody is saying, there is no indication that it will be subscription only.
    It can just be an organizational and technical decision. And I support that. I have products from all 3 major categories and I wish they would be more aligned.

    Guess that's where the name comes from.

    Chromatic: Because it is not belonging to any particular genre. (like the chromatic scale)
    Fire: Because it is lit.

    Yeah, because NI mostly releases new products on Tuesday or Thursday. However, occasionally I have seen them releasing on Monday or Wednesday; Pure Drip Expansion for example.

    Looking forward to download it when I am home. :)

    Thank you, NI. :)

    Apparently, going forward, NI's new "One Native" strategy includes giving away all products for free! It certainly is a bold move on their part, sure to shake up the industry.

    what??
    NI isn´t the 1st not the last company which gives products for free for special reason, so don´t believe that this is part of the new "One Native"-system!
    just to give You an example: Sonokinetic gave the last 3 Christmas each year one of their then new "Ostinato"-Series for the first 3000 customers for free! and they didn´t changed their company-system nor woke up any other sample-library-developer....man...

    They have done this before. 2 Years ago they gave away Phasis-FX for free during Christmas.

    Kidding man! Just making a little joke. Thankful for the expansion though. They also gave us Kinetic Toys a few years back as well for Thanksgiving I believe.
