Native Instruments has announced the DYNAMIC DUO sales special – a limited-time offer that bundles the MASCHINE groove production studio and NI's instruments and effects suite KOMPLETE 9. Until March 31, 2014, MASCHINE and KOMPLETE 9 are available together for $799 / 799 € / £669 / ¥ 82,700 from the NI Online Shop and at retailers worldwide. Here's what NI has to say about the two...
MASCHINE combines powerful software with a hardware-based workflow inspired by classic grooveboxes. 16 multi-color pads, a master push encoder, and eight display knobs provide intuitive control of all software features with tactile immediacy. MASCHINE 2 software delivers a pattern-based sequencer, high-performance sampler, and professional studio instruments and effects. The software also features five exclusive drum synth plug-ins capable of a wide range of sounds – all fully-adjustable and automatable directly from MASCHINE's hardware. A new 8+ GB sound library of professional, production-ready sounds adds even more sound for beat makers to explore. MASCHINE 2 software's tag-based browser and product icon display allow at-a-glance browsing of all KOMPLETE 9 Instruments and Effects.
KOMPLETE 9 is a comprehensive creative production suite with 33 products, 12,000 sounds, and 120 GB of sampled content for both studio and stage. Among its 33 award-winning instruments and effects are samplers such as KONTAKT 5 and BATTERY 4. The flagship modular synthesizer REAKTOR 5, which also hosts the dynamic MONARK, PRISM, and SPARK instruments, and renowned synths MASSIVE, FM8, and ABSYNTH 5 are also included. The updated SOLID MIX SERIES gives users a complete studio effects suite for creating polished, release-ready productions. And GUITAR RIG 5 PRO provides a wealth of amps and effects for use on guitar and bass or for creative sound design. When loading a KOMPLETE 9 Instrument or Effect in MASCHINE, key parameters automap to MASCHINE's eight display knobs for immediate, hands-on sound adjustment.

I wonder if any of the original dev team at NI are still about and if so how do they feel. Back in the day it was hard to keep up with the amount of amazing releases this company put out and I couldn't speak highly enough of them, now it's one product release every few months followed by an slew of discounting sales. Very sad.
