I would like to purchase this almost as much as I'd like to avoid paying full price. Does it ever go on sale? grin

Yes. Wait for Thanksgiving. But not guaranteed, of course.

I think it does, I just don't know when, probably around black friday. I believe I have seen it on sale for half the price.

Noire was released in early 2019 so is is old enough to be offered on sale IMO. It might be bundled in the next version of Komplete.

Native Instruments historically runs sales Black Friday and sometimes smaller sales in the autumn.

NI has been restructuring personnel so there is some "unfounded" speculation NI might move to subscription model in the future. This thread can help

Also you can see the VI was released in 2019 in the Piano VI database

I hope you find it at a price you can accept because it is quite nice. I've gone a little overboard on piano VST's lately and Noire is one of the one's I like quite a bit.

Since they are both Yamaha cfx libraries, does anyone own both Noire and Garritan cfx?

Im also interested in noire, and wonder how it compares to the garritan cfx in tone, playability, dynamic range, authenticity, etc.

I think owners of both include:
Craig Richards
slobajudge
Smaug
Keunyoung Song
Gary Dugan
Nor
Tonio
Frédéric L ?

Search the forums with both the PianoWorld Search function at the top right & the google box at the top left. That will provide you more colour and some videos.

Thanks, really a great comparison! After seeing this I think I have learned I don't need Noire, as I already have Garritan. It just sounds better te me, those ambient mics are so good. After buying Synthogy's American D I also found I don't really like to have a libary with just one mic position anymore, and think it's important that you can choose and/or mix mic positions to get exactly the sound you want.

You can buy it 2nd hand, I sold mine a couple weeks ago, the transaction is very simple

I guess it will go on sale on black friday?

For me the Garritan CFX is a more realistic straight acoustic piano (the full version) compared to Noire, but if you're interesting in piano experimentation with the Particles Engine and the wonderful Felted sample set, then Noire is superb. The standard Noire piano is nice and great to play, but it's more of a warm, "studio" piano sound, and not as dynamic and airy as Garritan's CFX. Also, disc space wise Noire is around 16GB compared to about 130GB for the full version of Garritan CFX. Both run fine from a standard 7200rpm disc drive.

In this comparison, I agree with you completely, and I actually prefer the sound of the Garritan, despite the fact that I generally prefer a closely mic'd, dry sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGhS8u74Tsc I am referring only to the standard sound of the Noire - not the felt & other bells & whistles.
Btw I like the way he does this comparison.
