Native Instruments announced the latest version of Komplete, a package collection of instruments and effects for music and sound production use. In this update, NI also introduced a new flagship product, Komplete 8 Ultimate.
Komplete 8 features a variety of Native Instrument’s programs including Kontact, Absynth and Reaktor, a total of 27 in all. This ends up totaling out to 110 GB of data and 11,000 sounds.They even throw in a $30 voucher that can be used to purchase more sounds from their store.
Komplete 8 Ultimate is a similar package but includes 50 total products across 240 GB. The additional products are complete collections of their “Ultimate “Drums and Percussion” Series, “Guitar and Bass” series and more. Some of the newer collections that were announced recently like Soul Treasures and The Mouth are found in this edition. Komplete 8 Ultimate ships on a USB 2.0 external hard drive rather than the large collection of DVDs that have been the norm in most situations.
Komplete 8 costs $560 with a $230 upgrade option for users of the previous version of Komplete. The Ultimate version will cost $1100 with a $560 update available for previous Komplete owners. Both products will be available on September 1st and support AU, RTAS and VST formats.
