Native Instruments releases KOMPLETE 9 collection

updated 03:48 pm EDT, Mon March 11, 2013

Includes six new tools plus studio effects

Native Instruments is now shipping KOMPLETE 9, an upgraded version of its instruments and effects bundle. The new edition incorporates 33 instruments and effects modules, including six new ones, namely the MONARK monosynth and the BATTERY 4 drum sampler. A variant of the bundle, KOMPLETE 9 ULTIMATE, gathers together all 65 KOMPLETE options in a package measuring over 370GB.

MONARK attempts to replicate the sound of an analog monophonic synthesizer, simulating factors like overload and oscillator drift. BATTERY 4 is a redesign of the NI drum sampler with over 70 new kits, which are also color-coded. Some new effects are built in, such as TRANSIENT MASTER, tape saturation, and a convolution reverb.

Another addition to KOMPLETE 9 is a collection of "essential" instruments and effects, such as an updated SOLID MIX series and SESSION STRINGS. As usual, meanwhile, the bundle revolves around several core apps, such as KONTAKT 5, GUITAR RIG 5 PRO, ABSYNTH 5, REAKTOR 5, and TRAKTOR 12.

The standard KOMPLETE package costs $559, while ULTIMATE is $1,099. Upgrading from KOMPLETE 2 or later costs $149. In any case, the software comes with a digital coupon worth $25 towards any KOMPLETE or MASCHINE item at NI's online store.
