    Default Is it selfish?

    Just read on the NI site that buyers of the Audio Kontrol 1 can now pick a free synth (Massive, FM8, Absynth 4 or Pro-53) along with their purchase.

    I bought my AK1 two years ago and have been happy out with it. But damn it if I can't help gnashing my teeth that this offer isn't retrospective at a time when I'm trying to find my production feet on a zero budget.

    It's not selfish, but, well, I've seen it when NI has offered up Traktor 3 for free if you buy Traktor Scratch (later making TSP free too)

    so yeah, I can understand the frustration.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Yeah I missed out on the T-Pro/TSP free upgrade, being that I registered my Traktor Scratch after T-Pro came out. I just sent a email to NI to see If I can get the free upgrade, being that I own Traktor 3/Traktor Scratch & Traktor Pro.

    If theres toilet paper on special that has a couple extra rolls when a couple weeks before when you bought the paper you didnt get your extra 2 roles for free - do you write to the company and ask for your 2 free roles of toilet paper ?

    Sure it sucks, but thats just the rules of the jungle - that said if NI did give out these upgrades retroactivly i imagine people would buy more NI hardware as opposed to other brands because they know there is a slight chance that down the track they might pick up some free stuff.

    Hmm... do you think NI would take a trade in of 2 rolls of 2-ply toilet paper for a VST synth?

    If you give one of the programers laxitives after emptying the NI toilets of its own toilet paper... maybe, its worth a shot.
