I have to disagree. Typically, they'll release a new version of Komplete mid-summer, but I'm not sure that's happening this year, since there haven't been too many new product launches so far (last year was Razor; this year, as far as I know, there's only been Skanner XT). There could of course be more coming up, but it's generally a bad idea to make purchasing decisions based on speculation.
For the past 2 summers, they've done a big half-off individual products sale around July, and another around Black Friday with less generous discounting. Komplete itself is conspicuously absent from these, though, and the upgrade sale they had in March was an anomaly.
So, if you're dead set on buying the bundle new, I'd say wait until summer to see if K9
comes out, or if they offer discounts during the mid-summer blow-out. If you want something now, your best bet is probably going to be buying K6
used, and waiting for an upgrade sale. YMMV, but that's my plan
