Native Instruments announces Komplete 6 (Adds: Absynth 5, Kontakt 4 and Guitar Rig 4 Pro; Discontinues: Elektrik/Akoustik Piano, B4 II, Bandstand and Pro-53)

Native Instruments

Native Instruments has announced Komplete 6, the latest version of its software bundle that has become a mainstay with professional musicians and producers. The new collection offers a veritable arsenal of acclaimed instruments and effects that cover all areas of modern music production, including powerful new versions of Absynth, Guitar Rig and Kontakt, at a significantly reduced price point (half the price of the previous bundle generation).

Komplete 6Komplete 6 incorporates the latest Absynth 5, Kontakt 4 and Guitar Rig 4 Pro versions, which add significant creative capabilities over their predecessors, complemented by Battery 3, FM8, Massive and Reaktor 5. All included products offer comprehensive compatibility for current host software versions and operating systems. Elektrik Piano is now included within the new Kontakt factory library, while Akoustik Piano, B4 II and Pro-53 are no longer part of the bundle due to their discontinuation as individual products. Overall, Komplete 6 includes an assortment of 7,000 individual preset sounds based on 60 GB of premium sample material.

Pricing & Availability

Komplete 6 will be available in October 2009 for a suggested retail price of $559 / €499. An update for owners of Komplete 2/3/4/5 will be available for $169 / €149.

Furthermore, Native Instruments will offer a special time-limited upgrade for owners of any version of Kontakt or Reaktor. These users will be able to purchase Komplete 6 at a special price of $339 / €299 until December 31st 2009.

More information on Komplete 6 including a video overview can be found here.

The discontinued products:

  • Akoustik Piano: The sounds of this instrument can and should be used with the free Kontakt Player, which is a much better platform regarding its sample engine and compatibility. The four individual piano models will be re-issued as Kontakt-Powered instruments for download in the near future.
  • B4 II: The affordable "'57 Drawbar Organ" instrument is NI's alternative offer for drawbar organ fans. You can check it out here.
  • Bandstand: Same as with Akoustik Piano, the free Kontakt Player is the new recommended playback platform for the sounds contained in this instrument.
  • Elektrik Piano: Same as with Akoustik Piano, use the free Kontakt Player. The sounds of Elektrik Piano are also now part of the Kontakt 4 factory library, so they continue to be available within Komplete.
  • Pro-53: While there is no direct replacement for this instrument in the NI product range, a wide range of vintage synth sounds can be achieved with Massive and Reaktor.
