Native Instruments has announced Komplete 7, a significantly expanded version of its software bundle. The next generation of Komplete now combines 24 instruments and effects – including five entirely new products – with over 10,000 sounds and 90 GByte of samples, resulting in a comprehensive and versatile suite for music production and performance.
Komplete 7 includes the latest versions of Native Instruments' full-featured instruments and effects, ranging from Absynth 5, Battery 3.1, FM8, Guitar Rig 4.1, Kontakt 4.1 and Massive to the upcoming Reaktor 5.5. As the next generation of the legendary modular synthesis studio, the new Reaktor version adds powerful modal and additive synthesis, a revised user interface, the unique "Lazerbass" synthesizer and many enhancements for both instrument builders and musicians.
Komplete 7 also integrates a wealth of instruments and effects based on the player versions of Kontakt, Kore, Reaktor and Guitar Rig. Products added to the bundle include the Abbey Road 60s Drums vintage drum library, the radical performance effect The Finger by Tim Exile, the sampled electric bass Scarbee MM-Bass and all four electric pianos from the Scarbee Vintage Keys series by sampling mastermind Thomas Scarbee, all four acoustic pianos of the Classic Piano Collection, the cinematic Acoustic Refractions instrument and the distinctive Reaktor Spark synthesizer.
Komplete 7 also incorporates five completely new products that further expand the creative potential of the bundle:
- The powerful studio reverb Reflektor with its advanced zero-latency convolution engine.
- The highly expressive Reaktor Prism modal synthesizer designed by NI founder Stephan Schmitt.
- The performance effects suite Traktor's 12, derived from Native Instruments' DJ software.
- The new Vintage Organs instrument with its comprehensive arsenal of painstakingly sampled electromagnetic organs.
- The new Rammfire amp emulation that was developed in close collaboration with one of Rammstein's guitarists, Richard Z. Kruspe.
Every copy of Komplete 7 also includes an NI Online Shop voucher worth $60 / €50, valid towards any product from the Komplete Instruments and Effects range that is not included in the bundle.
Komplete 7 will be available in September 2010 for a suggested retail price of $559 / €499. An update for owners of Komplete 2/3/4/5/6 will be available for $229 / €199.
