[EDIT] Komplete 8 Officially Announced
Native Instruments officially announces Komplete 8 and Komplete 8 Ultimate.
Komplete 8 has been expanded to include 27 individual products at an unchanged price, and the new Komplete 8 Ultimate combines the arsenal of Native Instruments' Komplete Instruments and Effects range at the same discount, with 50 individual products provided on a dedicated external hard drive.
The new Komplete 8 includes the latest Kontakt 5 and Guitar Rig 5 versions, and adds the West Africa percussion instrument. It also incorporates the new Studio Drummer drum production instrument and the upcoming Transient Master dynamic processing effect. Furthermore, Komplete 8 includes 1,300 additional presets for Absynth, FM8 and Massive, derived from various soundpacks previously available as individual products.
The new Komplete 8 Ultimate includes the full content of the regular Komplete 8 bundle and more, combining the full range of all currently available Komplete Instruments and Effects on a dedicated USB 2.0 hard drive. The resulting collection comprises 50 individual products with over 13,000 sounds and 240 GB of sample content, at a discount of about 80% compared to the individual prices.
Both new Komplete versions are optimized for Native Instruments' groove production system Maschine, offering browser integration with attribute-based preset search as well as automatic parameter mapping for the rotary knobs on the hardware controller.
