Native Instruments has announced Komplete 7 Elements (http://www.native-instruments.com/elements), a new software bundle that provides musicians and producers with an arsenal of professional instruments and effects. It includes over 2,000 production-ready sounds and 12GB of studio-grade sample material.
Together with the introduction of Komplete 7 Elements, the popular free Kontakt 4 Player and Kore 2 Player are now complemented with Player versions of Guitar RIG 4 and Reaktor 5. Komplete 7 Elements combines the vast synthesis, sampling and effects processing capabilities of these four Player versions with material that is derived from the full product versions contained in the professional Komplete bundle.
On the basis of Kontakt 4 Player, the Komplete 7 Elements collection — due in September for US$119 — offers a full assortment of acoustic sounds, including VSL orchestral material, Abbey Road drums, and a large variety of other classical, ethnic and band instruments. This material is complemented by a selection of classic analog synthesizers and other vintage keyboards.
Komplete 7 Elements offers nine full-featured Reaktor ensembles with over 1,200 preset sounds, including instruments like Photone, Steampipe and Metaphysical Function. This arsenal is complemented with an assortment of Absynth pads and soundscapes, as well as energetic leads and bass sounds from the Massive synthesizer, all enabled through the synthesis engines integrated in Kore 2 Player.
Together with the included Guitar Rig 4 Player, users of Komplete 7 Elements will also get access to eight amp emulations and 27 modelled effects units from the full-featured Guitar RIG software, providing a versatile basis both for Guitar and bass recording and for general creative sound processing in the studio. Every copy of Komplete 7 Elements also includes an NI Online Shop voucher worth $60.
