Native Instruments have added to their weighty synth range with the release of the Komplete 11 Suite. The new synth bundle comes in a variety of forms; Suite, Select & Ultimate. Select is an entry level bundle, costing round £150 and including some of Native Instruments most popular software, including the near essential Massive VST - it seems like a pretty solid purchase for anyone starting out in digital production, here's what you're getting:
* Massive (powerful popular synth)
* The Gentleman (sampled piano instrument)
* Monark (analog synth emulation)
* Drumlab (acoustic/electronic drum hybrid)
* Retro Maschines MK2 (vintage sampled instruments from the 70s and 80s)
* Vintage Organs (classic organs)
* West Africa (traditional West African percussion, solo or polyrhythmic ensembles)
* Reaktor Prism (polyphonic modal synthesizer)
*Scarbee Mark I (electronic piano)
* Solid Bus Comp (legendary bit compressor)
At a step up you've got the Komplete 11 Suite, costing $599 - we hesitate to say what that is in £££s because by the time we've typed a figure, it'll probably have changed. Thanks Brexit. Anyway, for your 600 bucks, you get a lot - around 45 instruments covering drums, synths and samplers. The official Native Instruments promo video is totally dry, so instead here's a nice man called Rob talking about what you get in both Suite, and the full on $1199 Ultimate version:
Komplete 11 is selling from September 1st
