will komplete 7 drop in price with 8 out? Virtual Instrument Plugins

will komplete 7 drop in price with 8 out?

I am going to buy komplete for the first time, but don't really need what's new in 8, so I wanted to just buy 7.

even with komplete 8 out now, the price of 7 doesn't seem to have dropped; at musiciansfriend, 7 is exactly the same price as 8!

so my question is will there be a price drop on 7 soon? Should I wait to buy?

The price drop on 7 was a month or so ago (it was on sale quite a few places).

Yes but that was before 8 came out. Shouldn't it go down more now that it's been superseceded? They don't sell iPhone 3s for the same price as iPhone 4s.

It's all very weird this year. For the past few years, during the summer, NI would drop the price significantly of whatever was the current Komplete, in anticipation of the new one coming out.

This year that did not happen. The sales were random and no better than the normal ones that happen now and then. It's basically stayed full price right up to the K8 announcement. In fact it's still full price virtually everywhere.

So I don't know how long you might be waiting.
