Native Instruments Komplete 7
Komplete 7 includes the latest versions of Native Instruments' full-featured instruments and effects, ranging from Absynth 5, Battery 3.1, FM8, Guitar Rig 4.1, Kontakt 4.1 and Massive to the upcoming Reaktor 5.5, which adds modal and additive synthesis, a revised user interface, the unique "Lazerbass" synthesizer and many enhancements.
Komplete 7 also incorporates five completely new products: studio reverb Reflektor with its advanced zero-latency convolution engine; the highly expressive Reaktor Prism modal synthesizer designed by NI founder Stephan Schmitt; the performance effects suite Traktor 12, derived from Native Instruments' DJ software; the new Vintange Organs instrument with its selection of sampled electromagnetic organs; and the new Rammfire amp emulation that was developed in close collaboration with one of Rammstein's guitarists, Richard Z. Kruspe.
Every copy of Komplete 7 also includes an NI Online Shop voucher worth $60, valid toward any product from the Komplete Instruments and Effects range that is not included in the bundle.
