Native Instruments Komplete 6 cant be purchased anymore from Native Instruments so if you want it you will have to find someone with it that is selling it and make sure you get all the licensing info from it. If you do get a chance to have it you will love everything that comes with this. It comes with award winning software that can fit into any genre of music. My favorite that it comes with is probably FM or Absynth. Massive is pretty good as well, I don’t think I have any songs done that doesn’t contain anything from Native Instruments. My computer is full of Native Instruments Software.
Its not the easiest to understand the software unless you just want to use everything as is and make your music out of nothing but the presets that it comes with. But if you want to start to make your own sounds in one of the softwares like absynth it will take some time and understand of how to do it. There are a lot of knobs and things you can just mess with untill you get something you like and once you find something you like you can save it as a preset for use in another song.
Overall, Native Instruements always brings great software to us musicians. I have been using NI Komplete 6 for around a year or so now, maybe a little longer and it was one of the first things I ever got from Native Instruments since then I have purchased so much of there other products because I was blown away by how good they are. I really recommend this bundle from NI or get the more recent and upgraded version Komplete 7. They also provide all updates right to your system without a problem as long as you have internet connection.
Native Instruments Komplete 6 is a great bundle at a low price. It comes with all the sounds that you will need to create great music. All of the sounds are high quality samples, and within the program you can tweak all the sounds and shape them anyway you want. This bundle will turn you into a sound designer/ creator. I like the compatibility the most, it works seamlessly with all my software. I use this as a vst for a few different programs and there are no problems at all. You wont need the manual for this either, this is just one of those programs that is trial and error. That’s the only way you will enjoy this, there are too many options to want to check the manual every time. You will need to get down and dirty and mess with the knobs and sliders to see what you can come up with. I am very happy with my purchase of the Komplete 6 package. The price was very reasonable for everything you get in this package. I have been using Komplete 6 for about a year and half now and wouldn’t choose any other vst package over this one.
Overall this is very good quality sounds for any production studio. I will say that a lot of the sounds/ synths are very spacey. More like a techno feel to it, so if that isn’t your cup of tea you might want to look for another package, or still use this one and put the time into tweaking all the sounds. But you will definitely use this package for a long time. It has everything you need. I bought the Komplete 6 package for around 3 hundred dollars and it was one of the best 300 dollars that I have spent on equipment
I used to use Komplete 5, logic, spectrasonics, and toontracks
- the price of the update
- the sound...it's huge. OK, not all presets are awesome but you only need to fiddle around with the settings and wow ))
- the immense variety of sounds available: Great quality and almost infinite possibilities.
- Tons of presets, instruments, effects, and more
- very stable.
- The interface is simple. If it weren't for the sound...
- You need lots of times to make the best out of everything it offers
Considering the update, it is an EXCELLENT value for money.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
