They've gotten their butts kicked in the DJ world, I say this as an owner of the Traktor S2mk2 and Traktor F1. This year I moved to DJ-505 & Force
Hardware wise, the Maschine is a staple, but even though the number of producers has gone up over time, it at least "feels" like the marketshare that has grown is predominately FL Studio. The A-Series and S-Series are great, I sold my old S49 and now have the S61mk2 Black edition (love the feels), but when I look at the value, the integration of the S-Series is still somewhat clunky and the keyboards *specifically the S-Series* feel overpriced.
Everyone just wants Komplete - and even that hasn't grown as it could thanks to competition. I'm just irritated I got the Ultimate Kollector's and still am missing stuff
Turning Komplete & the rest of their library into a Roland Cloud scenerio makes some sense, but I won't be biting, I've spent too much money on them to migrate to any kind of subscription model.

Expect this across the board with other companies. This is what happens, when companies, treat artist/creators clients like normal consumers.
They should do what they're great at and hyper focus. They would've been better making one incredible keyboard and one incredible Maschine. Then fully integrate their software into those instruments. There's lots of room at the top, but at the bottom it's packed.
