    What is the cost to go from Kontakt 5 to Kontakt 6?

    Sorry for the double post, I had a hard time logging in and got confused.:confused:

    Thanks David, what confuses me is that it say "If you have Kontakt 2". So I should assume it's Kontak 2 and above?

    Basically $49.

    Reagarding Komplete, I've already go Komplete 11ultimate.

    I believe so. This being NI's automated system, I don't think it will let you check out unless you qualify for the upgrade. (I can't try it myself, since I already have Kontakt 6.)

    Okay thanks David. It says $49.50 for an update, does that sound correct?

    I did checkout Komplete 12 and there's really nothing there I can use.

    Okay I'll git it a try, assuming I will get the full version of K6.

    Hello, I had also hard time with login in and confused about upgrading Kontakt 6.
    I just bought a new VST-library which needs K6 and I've already bought the Full Kontakt 5 & numerous crossgrade libraries (Heavyocity's products etc.).
    So how can I upgrade K6 and will this cost something ?

    I'm not using any features of K5 and the only reason for upgrading to get the newest VST libraries work.

    K6 upgrade does require payment. But if the K6 library you bought is a Kontakt Player library, you can just download the free Kontakt 6 Player and it will work.

    How can I upgrade the crossgrade version of the full K6 library (my new library is not working with free K6) ?
    I thought that paid the full price 399€ once will have enough to get the upcoming updates.

    You €399 was for Kontakt 5 (full edition) wasn't it? That gives all updates to Kontakt 5. But, think of Kontakt 6 as a separate product.

    Kontakt 6 would be an upgrade (although it is shown on the Kontakt 6 Pricing page as an Update) and would need some payment.(€89?) and you get all updates to Kontakt 6.

    Hi, I joined into your email list and now the Black Friday is coming with sales.
    How could I get my Full Kontakt 6 crossgade upgrade for that $49.50?
    Thank you.

    Not every sale is going to be on crossgrades. :)

    I understand but have there been any crossgrade sales in 2020?

    TBH I don't remember. I don't think there were? And even if they were they wouldn't repeat the same sale twice a year.

    We had an offer on our crossgrades/upgrades and updates this summer already actually.

    Okay, that's strange. I have read every week your NI newslatter in 2020 and waited for a moment to get the upgrade at $49.50 during these challenging Covid-times. However it seems that I missed it :/
