Along with Komplete 7, Native Instruments has also announced Komplete 7 Elements, a new software bundle that provides musicians and producers with an especially affordable arsenal of instruments and effects. Based on the technology of Kontakt, Kore, Reaktor and Guitar Rig, the bundle includes over 2,000 production-ready sounds and 12 GByte of studio-grade sample material, covering a wide range of sound aesthetics and musical styles.
Together with the introduction of Komplete 7 Elements, the popular free Kontakt 4 Player and Kore 2 Player are now complemented with player versions of Guitar Rig 4 and Reaktor 5. Komplete 7 Elements combines the vast synthesis, sampling and effects processing capabilities of these four player versions with a wealth of sound material that is derived from the full product versions contained in the Komplete bundle.
On the basis of Kontakt 4 Player, the Komplete 7 Elements collection offers a full assortment of premium-quality acoustic sounds, including VSL orchestral material, Abbey Road drums, and a large variety of other classical, ethnic and band instruments. This material is complemented by a practical selection of carefully sampled classic analog synthesizers and other vintage keyboards.
For distinctively modern sound aesthetics, Komplete 7 Elements offers nine full-featured Reaktor ensembles with over 1,200 preset sounds, including unique instruments like Photone, Steampipe and Metaphysical Function. This arsenal is complemented with a large assortment of atmospheric Absynth pads and soundscapes as well as energetic leads and bass sounds from the Massive synthesizer, all enabled through the synthesis engines integrated in Kore 2 Player.
Together with the included Guitar Rig 4 Player, users of Komplete 7 Elements will also get access to eight authentic amp emulations and 27 modelled effects units from the full-featured Guitar Rig software, providing a versatile basis both for guitar and bass recording and for general creative sound processing in the studio.
Every copy of Komplete 7 Elements also includes an NI Online Shop voucher worth $60 / €50, valid towards any product from the Komplete Instruments and Effects range.
Komplete 7 Elements will be available in September 2010 for a suggested retail price of $119 / €99.
