    Before I go instal it I was wondering if there'd be any point.

    I would sell the version I owned and install the freebie :)

    So it's not a diff version then? Ok. These offers only appeal to new buyers, I rarely see something offered that I don't already have. It'd be nice to have other options for dedicate "ultimate" buyers.

    There are enough choices between Skanner XT, The Giant, Premium Tubes or even some Maschine DrumKits Expansion...

    But they just keep them for the next Ultimate bundle... to give us some reasons to upgrade.

    Well I saved over 90% on individual list price with K8U thanks to NI's Maschine crossgrade; I think I can sit this one out. If you're that desperate to get something for free then Uncle NI will probably give you an Xmas present. Last year it was Skanner.

    haha. Well said.

    Yeah, they only gave Massive away free. Just one of the most popular synths in the world.

    And do you know why?
    Because it puts Akai behind in tools/library content for the Ren.
    Also why getting K8 out there to Maschine users was vital to NI.
    A K9 will eventually be released but adding value to the Maschine user base is really critical now that they have some direct competition.
