I have Maschine and in April I purchased Kore 2 (with the controller). Now I like the sound of Komplete 8's integration with Maschine, but I don't want to lose my Kore 2 functionality. Reading the NI website and various comments it all seems very confusing. I don't really want to throw something away that I've only had for a few months, not to mention all the Kore soundpacks I purchased. Now this may seem like a daft question, but could I run K7 and K8 on the same machine? Steinberg allowed customers to retain a previous version of the Cubase product when upgrading to get around project compatibility issues between different versions. The idea being that Kore could work with K7 and Maschine with K8.
