You get more street cred and tech support when you pay for cracks.

Well, that was fun but yeah I think it's worth it. It's in the staple top 10. And doesn't that make it like half off?

Also NI has seemed to be going crazy with price reductions lately on everything other than their DJ line. You think they finally realized they aren't the only horse in town?

Massive is really powerful.
I'm lucky, cos in an earlier promo, I bought K3 and kore1 which had Komplete care 2006 thrown in.
So when K4 came out, I immediately qualified.
NI took so long to deliver that they threw in Massive for free...bonus!
IMHO buying Komplete, saves you so much in the long run...and I'm sure Nebulae, you'll be banging out tunes for a long time.
Just got K5 and Kore 2(software upgrade @ 50 % off with NI xmas promo)which cost $173 for both.
I'm not trying to advertise for NI, but just saying that sometimes it's better to (bite the bullet) and buy the whole package, which saves you $ in the long run, compared to upgrading individual vst's etc.. thats if you have the spare cash lying around.
...and it's mr sakitumi (too late to change profile name)...damn

An annoying thing about Massive (FM8, Absnyth too) is you need to make your own program change list, since there are like a thousand patches. So if you want to change patches the first times you use it, you have to use the mouse or computer keyboard instead the the program change button on your controller. Once you find a patch you like, you have to drag it to your program list where you then have to save it and load it each time. Because of this, I don't use it as much as I would if it had a bunch of program list already set up.

Beside that, $99 is a decent price.
