1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here

    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    I have KUCE but would like to swap one of the expansions for the newer “the stereotypes”. If I swap one of the expansions but have used some of those sounds on older projects, will they be inaccessible as midi? Will I have to save them as .wav files prior?

    You cannot transfer the expansions included in KUCE because it’s all one license. You can only trade or sell ones you have purchased individually.

    I plan on upgrading from 12U to 12UCE in the next summer sale. In addition to upgrading from Select to K12U, I also purchased a bunch of individual expansions that are included in UCE. So in that case I will have a bunch of duplicates I will be able to sell/trade. But anything that I hadn’t previously bought that came with the K12U collection would not be transferable or able to be sold outside of the K12U upgrade itself.

    I just don't understand the trade aspect.. there is no like for like trade.. I know all the same price but just because there the same price dont make them equal...

    Lol what? They all cost the same, so their value is inherent in your taste as an individual. Therefore, some expansion you don’t care for at all may be very valuable to me, and vice verse.

    If you make house and I accidentally bought some house expansion I don’t want, I can potentially trade to you for an expansion you’re sitting on you regret buying. There are many situations where trading or selling these expansions are desirable.

    Those that came with KUCE are the hardest ones to trade because a ton of people also have it available to trade/sell when they upgraded to KUCE and ended up with dupes.

    Yeah I figure I will probably bundle the lot of them for a reasonable price and try to find a buyer who’s new to the NI ecosystem and looking to branch out from Select.

    What is the process for trading expansions? I would be willing to trade one or two of my lesser-used expansions. I'd like to get Opaline Drift from somebody.

    If the license key hasn't been used yet you should be able to just trade keys. If not, you'd have to transfer the license key first before trading.
