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, 
    The NI Team

    What do you do with your old Komplete packages & disks? I have boxes of old Komplete versions I don't need but keep...just in case. They are taking up more space than I'd like.

    I expect the issue is an older song that used Kontakt 3 or older iteration of other instrument that I may want to edit; need to have the old original disks, just in case?

    Or can I download older version from NI site and not have to store old boxed disk set versions?

    Comments?

    I wouldn't count on the software always being downloadable. Keep those discs and registration cards.

    I bought Komplete 2 and 3 from someone on eBay... they didn't know the status of the serials, but they promised to refund me if I couldn't register them. Sadly, the serial numbers wouldn't work, so the seller refunded me and let me keep the boxes.

    Komplete 2 included printed manuals for all the instruments. Amazing. I'm keeping all that even if I can't use the software.

    Was it really worth kicking up a 3,5 year old thread for this? :D

    In this case, I also don't mind reviving an old thread. The boxes aren't fancy anymore, but I used to keep the box for about a year or until the next version came out, then I would get a pair of scissors and cut off the back panel with all the pretty pictures; then recycle the remainder of the box.

    I have kept my old DVD and HDD install discs, but it's rare that I would go back to one older than the most current version. Except in the current case, and that is because I haven't yet upgraded to K12U. There are no price discounts, so no reason to do so this holiday season. I'd rather buy things that actually have a significantly discounted price.

    That and Native Access still terrifies me. Sorry, it was THAT BAD upon release that I still don't trust it. I'd rather upgrade my Arturia, Cubase, Live, or other software that doesn't scare me that much. Plus, a lot of those are cheaper than K12U too.
