Will Native Instruments Have A Black Friday Sale?

native instruments black friday sale

Native Instruments will have a black Friday sale this season. You can expect anywhere between a 30 – 50% discount on the Komplete range and upgrades. Expect to save more on upgrades than purchasing outright. You will be able to make use of the sale on their official website and official plugin retailers like Plugin Boutique.

Black Friday Upgrades and Crossgrades

Native Instruments offered 50% off on upgrades for Komplete during their Black Friday sale last year. So the best discount strategy is to buy the lowest-priced version of Komplete, and then make use of the upgrade discounts. This is how you’ll save the most.

How to make the most of the Native Instruments sale: Which deal(s) should I get as a priority?

If you have your eyes on a piece of Native Instrument hardware, then now is the best time to purchase it: KOMPLETE audio interfaces and KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards come bundled with Komplete Select, that you can use to upgrade to a higher version. So you can then purchase:

If you’re not intertested in the above hardware, then it’s typically best to purchase the lowest-priced version of Komplete (Select), and then use the upgrade discounts because they are always more enticing and you’ll often save more.

If you get Select 14 this year, you can then upgrade to the other Native Instruments Komplete versions for much cheaper. The best deal is the upgrade to Komplete Ultimate, as it will allow to save a whopping 650$ (55% off):

  • If you were to grab Select on the promo, it would cost you $99.50.
  • Then to upgrade to Ultimate, it would be an extra $457.
  • Total = 548$

The original price of Komplete Ultimate alone is $1,199

Upgrading from Select to Ultimate this Black Friday will save you 650$ (55%) on Komplete Ultimate!

Native Instruments has some of the best-sounding instrument and synth libraries around, and Komplete 14 includes a tonne of synths, sample instruments, and drums for you to dig your greedy music production teeth into.

With Komplete 14 select you get:

  • NI Massive
  • Monark
  • Reaktor Prism
  • Reaktor Factory Selection
  • Ethereal Earth
  • Hybrid Keys
  • Retro Machines MK2
  • Scarbee Mark I
  • Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass – this is worth it alone!
  • The Gentleman
  • Vintage Organs
  • West Africa
  • Drum Lab
  • Kontakt Factory Selection
  • Raum
  • Phasis
  • Replika
  • Solid Bus Comp
  • And 5 included expansion packs.

How To Get Native Instruments Plugins Cheaper Outside Of Sales Like Black Friday Deals?

Subscription

Native Instruments doesn’t offer a traditional rent-to-own scheme for its plugins and products, but they have a subscription service named “Komplete Now” to access a curated bundle of essential instruments and effects for a monthly fee of $9.99. It’s very useful to explore and try out Native Instruments plugins without forking the full price upfront.

Second-hand licenses

Native Instruments offers second-hand license transfers that allow users to transfer their licenses to another person, so you can find their products heavily discounted as second-hand purchases. Scan their community forum, Reddit threads, and dedicated Facebook groups for opportunities.

The seller will need to unregister the license of the NI product from their account. Upon doing so, they will receive a License Transfer ID to share with you, which will enable you to import the product to your user account.

Education discount

Most educational discounts from Native Instruments are exclusively available to educational institutions. They offer multi-seat licenses at up to an 80% discount for educational use.

However, individual students or teachers can apply for a discount on their flagship modular synthesizer REAKTOR 6.

How to prepare for the Native Instruments Black Friday Sale?

  1. Start saving your cash now. The amount of discounts on music software, instruments & sample packs on Black Friday is crazy. To get the most bang for your buck start putting aside a bit each month, so you have some to play with when those juicy deals drop.
  2. Make a wishlist – Know what Native Instruments libraries, plugins, or instruments you want before Black Friday. It helps you skip irrelevant deals.
  3. Identify needs and set goals – Focus on Native Instruments plugins & libraries you’ll actually use. Don’t waste money on software that’ll sit unused. Think about your music projects for the next year. Pick plugins that help you achieve those aims. Older versions might be cheaper.
  4. Sign up for mailing lists and alerts. Get one of your promo emails and sign up to lists (like ours), so you can get updates straight to your inbox!
  5. Bookmark this page. We update this hourly during the Black Friday period, and you’ll get all the most up-to-date deals by doing so.
  6. Make sure to join other communities. Places like Reddit and Facebook can be great places to find more information about these deals and stay informed.

FAQ

If I buy any of the Native Instruments plugins now and buy a bundle including it later, will the bundle be the same price? Or will it account for the fact I already own one of the plugins in the bundle?

No, if you buy a plugin and later decide to purchase a bundle containing that plugin, the price of the bundle will not be adjusted to account for your previous purchase. Native Instruments recommends selling the individual plugin you own and then purchasing the bundle.

Did Native Instruments Have A Black Friday Sale Last Year?

Native Instruments had a sale last Black Friday for 30% off first-time purchases and 50% off on upgrades. This was for Komplete 13. There were additionally some introductory deals, such as Komplete 13 Select for $99.50, and Plugin Boutique also offered some deals on instruments.

Komplete 14 is a fantastic bundle to get if you want to get into the Native Instruments world. Komplete Select should be fairly cheap this Black Friday and include various instruments.

You get access to software like:

  • Massive
  • Kontakt
  • Kontak Factory Instruments & More Packs
  • Reaktor
  • Reaktor Factory Instruments & More Packs
  • A range of Native Instruments effects
  • Expansion packs

Is There a Kontakt Black Friday Sale? Will It Happen?

Kontakt doesn’t directly go on sale during the Black November sales. You can pick it up as part of a Native Instruments sale package. Look out for deals on Komplete and bundles that include Kontakt with it.

Based on past sales we can predict that Kontakt will unlikely have a Black Friday sale. It hasn’t gone on sale in the past unless it was part of a bundle offered by Native Instruments.

Will Komplete Have A Black Friday Sale?

Komplete 14 will have a sale this Black November. Native Instruments typically only have sales on the Komplete range and some other bundles. You can’t typically get a particular instrument on sale, so if you only wanted Massive, you’ll probably have to get a bundle to grab a saving on it. However, these usually work out pretty cheap and you get some great extra plugins with them, so why not grab a bundle?
