Native instruments' Komplete series of plugins has been the backbone for many producers DAWs. Their popular collection of virtual instruments and effects offers a solution for everything you need in the studio from real instrument and amplifier modelling, virtual synthesisers and mixing / mastering tools. As well as working seamlessly with all major DAWs (Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Sonar), the capabilities of stand-alone use and intergration with Maschine opens exciting possibilities for use in live applications too.
The standard Komplete 9 contains 33 instruments and effects with 120 gigabytes of samples whereas the monsterous Komplete 9 Ultimate contains 65 instruments and effects and 370 gigabytes worth of samples stored on an external hard drive.
New additions to the range include Monark – a simplistic yet powerful virtual monophonic synth with a moog-esque feel (available in the standard and ultimate packages). Also included is the newly updated Battery 4; their signature drum sampler has been reformatted providing an even more efficient workflow, sidechain compression options and drag-and-drop sample loading. Here's Native Instrument's teaser video showing off the potential of their new software collection:
The updated Komplete package offers outstanding intergration with Maschine and if you haven't already purchased one you can get the Maschine MKII and Komplete 9 Ultimate for £1099 or with the Komplete 9 standard edition for £799.
