The latest Komplete 7 and Komplete 7 Elements from Native Instruments take your computer music-making to a kompletely new level…

Ever since we were wowed by Native Instruments’ first releases (anyone remember the joys of the first incarnation of Absynth?), we’ve known to keep an eye out for anything bursting out of the NI stable.

We loved the Komplete concept right from its very first incarnation, I mean, who wouldn’t scrabble to get their hands on a collection of Native’s finest instruments and soft tools? So, as you’d expect, we were extremely pleased (understatement alert!) to get our hands on the new Komplete 7 Collection and its companion release, Elements…

Komplete the circle

Bigger and better than any of the previous versions, Komplete 7 features 24 (yep, that’s right) instruments and effects, bursting at the seams with over 10,000 production-ready sounds to suit
all styles and genres.

You’ll be pleased to see some of Native’s stalwarts here, including the latest incarnations of the Kontakt soft sampler, Reaktor modular powerhouse and the Guitar Rig studio and effects platform.
The 90GB package also includes some new-to-Komplete instruments such as Reaktor Spark and Reaktor Prism, plus some fantastic sound engines from Scarbee and Abbey Road.

Also, when you register your new Komplete 7 with Native, you’ll get a free e-voucher for €50 to spend on further instruments!

Complete Komplete…

Here’s a full rundown of the instruments and effects in Komplete 7:
Reaktor 5.5 • Kontakt 4.1 • Absynth 5 • Massive • FM8 • Reaktor Spark Reaktor Prism • Acoustic Refractions • Guitar Rig 4 Pro • RammFire Scarbee MM-Bass • Battery 3.1 • The Finger •Traktor’s 12 • Reflektor • New York Concert Grand • Vienna Concert Grand • Berlin Concert Grand Upright Piano • Vintage Organs • Scarbee MkI • Scarbee A-200 • Scarbee Clavinet/Pianet • Abbey Road 60s Drums

Table of Elements

With Komplete getting ever bigger and better, Native has now introduced a new, smaller collection of instruments at the stunningly affordable price of £79.

For a fraction of the cost of the full version, Komplete 7 Elements gives you an array of Kontakt instruments (25 synths/keyboards/organs/drum machines, 21 contemporary synths, five drumkits and 16 urban kits), nine Reaktor instruments, eight amps and 27 effects from Guitar Rig 4, 400 of the best sounds from Massive and Absynth, and 155 other instruments and effects for Kore 2 Player. It also features content from the Vienna Symphonic Library Orchestra and a vintage 60s Gretsch drumkit recorded at Abbey Road’s famous Studio Two.

Elements is brilliant value, whether you’re just looking for a taste of Native’s prowess or wanting an affordable collection of high-quality sounds. And for those who’ve already gone Native, then you can’t say no to Komplete 7!
