This morning, Native Instruments announced their new generation of Komplete collections, adding new products to Komplete and Komplete Ultimate, and introducing a new “member of the portfolio,” Komplete 11 Select.
Komplete 11 incorporates seven new instruments, including the “highly innovative and brand-new” synthesizer Form, Una Corda, and Reaktor 6 with Reaktor Blocks.
Komplete 11 Ultimate adds 13 new products, including the new orchestral instruments Symphony Essentials and Flesh, in addition to the new additions in Komplete 11.
All Komplete suites are available as downloads or on hard disk or flash drive.
Here’s the official intro video:
Komplete 11 and Komplete 11 Ultimate feature new instruments that “significantly expand the sonic palette” available for users. Both suites now include Form, a brand-new synthesizer.
Using a sample as the primary oscillator, Form (pictured) offers a powerful new paradigm for sound design, to spark a broad array of fresh ideas. Komplete 11 Ultimate also includes Symphony Essentials – five detailed orchestral instruments. Based on the Symphony Series instruments, Symphony Essentials features the same recordings and signature interface with a streamlined set of articulations.
Komplete 11 Select is a new version of the suite that, NI says, “offers a gateway to the professional music production world” of Komplete, with eleven full instruments covering a wide instrument range: synths, pianos, drums, percussion, and effects. Among the instruments included are Massive and Monark, two of Native Instruments’ most widely used synths. Two essential effects, the Replika delay and Solid Bus Compressor, round off the collection. In all, Komplete 11 Select includes over 2,500 sounds with more than 25 GB of instruments and effects.
NI’s newly-launched Native Access simplifies the user’s downloading, installing, activating, and updating Native Instruments software. Komplete Kontrol software (included) offers unified browsing, innovative Smart Play features, and allows users to take direct physical control of Komplete instruments from a Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboard or from Maschine.
Komplete 11 offers a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects, including nearly fifty products and more than 13,000 sounds, along with seven new instruments: Form, Reaktor 6, Una Corda, Discorvery Series: India, Replika, Session Guitarist – Strummed Acoustic, and Kinetic Metal.
Komplete 11 Ultimate, the “flagship bundle” for professional producers, composers, and sound designers, features 87 products and over 18,000 sounds, and adds 13 new instruments, including the five Symphony Essentials instruments, Flesh, Emotive Strings, plus all the new products in Komplete 11.
Komplete 11, Komplete 11 Ultimate, and Komplete 11 Select will be released online and via retailers September 1, 2016. All versions of Komplete 11 can be pre-ordered now from the NI Online Shop.
