    boy, if this is true, it's pretty outrageous for those of us who have invested a lot of money in kompakt powered libraries. i already own kontakt, but i'd be pissed if i had to upgrade just to keep using something i've already payed for- tho i guess that's typical of any software moving forward.

    still, it doesn't bode well for the future of these libraries. hopefully EW will have a reasonable upgrade policy when their player comes online.

    sheesh. stuck in the middle again. :P

    My understanding is that most 3rd party developers are going to offer free upgrades to the K2 Player versions of their products. EastWest has a pretty clear note on this on their support.soundsline.com site.

    If there was no Intel Mac when the library was purchased what is the outrage based on? No-one is being forced to buy an Intel Mac.

    I have stacks of retired software and samples not to mention retired hardware. Most of the licenses can't be transferred. Just add "Legacy" or "Classic" to the name and move on.

    thanks David! I hadn't seen that - good to know.

    Sounds like the library developers are doing a good thing. I'm kind of disappointed that Kompakt likely will see no further development. The upgrade price is kind of steep, though they are including some good stuff to increase the value of it, I would rather have seen a cheaper upgrade to a Kompakt 2. But, that's the way it goes. You buy what exists at the time, not necessarily an upgrade path.
