[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 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.
