I had Komplete 7 before, so an upgrade to ultimate seemed quite normal and wise. I upgraded two months after its release.
Which feature do you like the most / the least?
Most: kontakt and reaktor. (the sound library that come with them)
Did you try any other models before buying this one? No
How would you rate its value for money? Excellent, knowing that NI provides new products with Komplete, like the VC, which comes free as VST.
Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? Yes, I will when V9 comes out
mrjason's review"Best with Windows 7"
This bundle comes with over 240 GB of sounds and all of them are of great quality and usable. One of the major differences between Ultimate and the standard version of Komplete is the effects that you will get. You get Solid EQ, The Finger, Traktor 12, The Mouth, Reflektor, Solid Bus Comp and a few more. All of these effects are worth so much individually and with them all being in a package makes it worth the money.
Some of my favorite sounds in this bundle are the drum sounds. You get so many kits like the Abbey Road kits, it comes with the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s drum kits plus a bonus “Modern Drums”. If you want to get realistic sounding bass or guitars you can get that in no time with all of the plugins like Scarbee Jay-Bass. You also get Alicia’s Keys, which is a great piano plug in that alone cost over 100 dollars to buy.
Before purchasing this bundle you have one thing you need to think about. That is can your computer handle everything. After purchasing this, I had no choice but to get a newer computer within the next year because running all of the effects and plug ins will slow your system down big time. Also if you are using it on a PC it is best to have Windows 7 for the latest drivers and updates. There is nothing to think about with this bundle, don’t think about the price tag. Think about the quality of instruments you are getting.
Fast installation...I connected the usb HDD, launched the installer and went to work.
When I came back I just had to activate it, which took me 1 minute.
I also have machfive 3, which is very good, too. Given the price of a software sampler I prefer to have several products, like in the old days when we had racks full of toys.
Very good value for money, given the contents, not even the price of a lousy expander full with GM sounds.
An obvious choice for people who want to have original software, this type of bundle is well thought-out by Native Instruments because if you crack it then you are really a lost cause.
The war between kontakt/machfive and the like must be stopped, was it the same with E-MU and AKAI? And very often you end up having both...At least it is not at expensive now.
Given the price of hardware, which lags way behind in terms of sounds ─ and even more so when you look at the price of the newest member of the Roland family, even if it does have certain good qualities ─ it's better to invest in software.

FLO17000's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A buy especially if you do not have a lot of plug-ins"
Really great all plugs!
Including Kontact is really well supplied. I also use many guitar rig.
In short, a good product, cons I think we can be satisfied with the CD version (not ultimate), once installed you do not see the difference.
