I bought Komplete last summer and it has been a real delight ever since. I use this plugins very often .

I was already a user of Kontakt 2, Massive, Reaktor and Elektrik Piano so I decided to buy this very attractive bundle when I saw it: Komplete 5 + Kore2/Controller + master keyboard.

The number of plugins and the huge sound possibilities are incredible. Especially thanks to the Reaktor libraries and the presets quality.

You can either use factory sound banks or create instruments/FX in Reaktor.

I'm not a good musician but I like sound synthesis and I can spend hours tuning sounds using FM, granular or subtractive synthesis, wave tables, sampling, FX, everything is provided.

The bundle is very comprehensive especially if you use the Reaktor library (including some excellent ensembles). And there is no match out there...

I'm just a bit disappointed because Spectral Delay and Vokator are not included in the bundle. They are discontinued. Native Instruments should offer them as a bonus to registered users.

The learning curve can be very steep if you want to use all plugins and create your own presets immediately, but all plugins are very good.

The most difficult thing for me is to play with Akoustik and Elektrik Piano, and to understand Reaktor.
