Native Instruments Komplete 7 : Anonymous 's user review
"If being limited by your library of sounds is an issue..."
The most important part of Native Instruments Komplete 7 for me is, beyond any shadow of a doubt, Kontakt 4. It's a general program, and includes a bunch of samples of everything, but each of these samples quite simply rivals those that come in those dedicated programs that sell for just as much. So Kontakt 4 essentially replaces your DAW's soundbank. I especially find the strings to be very well implemented. If you're playing a single instrument, it is quite easy to tell that it's not real though, but only if you have a trained ear. Stick a bunch of them is a thick mix or even fully orchestrate something, and you have something that almost nobody will be able to tell came straight from a computer.
The other programs are also fantastic. I have enjoyed my time in Absynth immensely; even if you don't know what you're doing, you will not fail to find yourself lost in the sheer volume of things to do.
Battery was also impressive in the sense that it went beyond the typical "drum set" program, and did manage to include more esoteric sounds, like bombs, for example.
And finally, Guitar Rig did and always will surpass anything in its class, if you could put it in one.
The best advice I could give would be to stop reading reviews and start watching videos, listening to samples, and if you can, using it. I can't heap enough praise onto this bundle.
