I got it but I have no serial number listed in my account.  Just shows NA and The Sonokinetic Manager says it's an open Kontakt library.  But it's not, so the download is not usable.
 
I wonder if I should try their support or just accept it and move on.

If you miss your serial number you will get your serial in the next 24hours. This info was given to me by the support team.

Great way to piss off potential customers. Offer something free in limited quantities and then you have to fight like your at a Walmart Black Friday sale. Well, I have a job and can only check in to see these deals only once or twice a day. So I missed out and will definitely never do any business with Sonokinetic based on this kind of sales tactic!

Mine still isn't showing on my account.  But then neither is Ostinato Strings, but I did get a serial number for it.  Sure enough some email came through with the serial number.  But Native Access is saying it is already registered.
 
Don't seem to be able to win this round.

Matt, In my direct experience, Sonokinetic's customer support is very helpful and quite understanding. I had similar issues with Ostinato Brass, last time around, and they got it sorted out for me. I'd definitely inquire of them, and see what they say.

So their intro price is now over valued since they gave it away for free. 40 euros is too much now.

Well, I am disappointed. I made it to my cart, went to checkout with Paypal then it reverted me back to checkout with "I'm not a robot". The library was still in my cart. Finally I made back to checkout and the library was no longer in my cart. I missed the freebie. No fair when you are on the mailing list, they send you an email about the free library and you can't get past the checkout. Bummer

I'm sure they will sort it out, I've opened a ticket.  Not the end of the world.  I have the other two and they are nice, but I don't think I've ever actually used them to make any real music.  I really like Sonokinetic (and my wallet will verify that) but limited freebies like this are always going to cause issues.  I think if you subscribed to the Xmas mailing list you should get this though, that's a failure on their part to not guarantee that.
 
I just wish they would bring back their Trailer Voices product.  One Xmas a big chunk of it was the freebie, but not the whole collection.  Now they no longer sell it, so even if I wanted to I can't buy the whole collection I can't.  The completist in me is very disturbed.

That was their best stuff.  I think they moved that stuff to an iPad app. I have a lot of their stuff and most are a one trick pony thing even though I could afford it La Noir would have been a buy.

  Just think of those who got their first product for free and those who have their products get a uh....50% off.  As saturated as the DAW market is it my be time to stick to those who are most loyal.

I got all the way through checkout to "Payment" 5 times, and each
time it said "Payment Error", in spite of what Payment method I chose
for a FREE product.  Then, the next time it just went blank, and I got an
email with a serial #, but it wasn't in my account.  But there was no way to
register the serial # on their site, or in the Sonikinetic Manager!  I went
back and tried again, much to my dread, and, lo and behold, it went right
through without hesitation, and I got the product in my account.  Haven't
downloaded yet, because I'm sure their servers are being slammed, and I'm
in no hurry.

Great cclarry2, glad you were able to get it. The server must have got slammed when I tried to checkout. Tried to checkout for the umpteen time and the freebie was removed from my cart. Sent support an email detailing my frustration.

Worked fine here but took some 10 or more tries. Thanks for this sweet freebie, Sonokinetic!

 That seem like the consensus on some forums. They never use them.
 
 Can this technically be called a gift when it is limited? It's more like a contest.

Yeah, I don't really see it as a gift either -- especially after it required an hour and half of my time just to wrestle their website to get it. It was more like a battle of wills, than a giveaway: who can stick it out long enough to succeed, and who hasn't got anything better to do with their time than keep trying? I got mine to finally go through using my mobile phone while travelling, and it was my last chance to do so or I would have been too busy at work to worry about it.
 
This evening I downloaded and installed it, and its an ok product. I like it better than Ostinato Brass, which I really can't seem to find a way to use (although I've tried), as the brass sound is so hazy and undefined and muddy. The woodwind Ostinato is about as good as their Ostinato Strings, which I have used a bit, here and there. I don't consider any of these to be gems like some of the Spitfire freebies, which I find genuinely useful. In all honestly, I'd never pay $99 for these Ostinatos.

No matter how companies do freebies, people will always find a reason to complain.
 
I can understand how some would be put off, but considering they gave away thousands of copies, I'm guessing it was worth the trouble for most.

I'm still gonna ask them for a better discount on this.  I own a lot of their stuff even though it's not the big money items.  I've basically bought from them every year.  How about they throw some loyalty this way.
 
People don't complain about freebies when it is really a contest involving bandwidth and other factors.  So far no one has complained about the Waves BF giveaway, or the recent NI library.

True, they need to find a better way. If nothing else, just to make it easier on themselves

I see it as part of the annual merry season. Fun to be had. And if you don’t want to fiddle you can simply get in at half price. Works both ways. Those who want the freebie, jump through hoops and create the buzz. Those who prefer the easy route pay four tenners. No real harm done either way and Sonokinetic gets the attention it deserves.
