Native Instruments' Komplete 9 ULTIMATE Software Suite offers just about every instrument and effect you can imagine. It's Native Instruments' most comprehensive software bundle, with 65 products -- software synthesizers, samplers, effects, and more. Komplete 9 ULTIMATE comes with over 370 GB of audio content, all conveniently stored on a USB drive, ready to be transferred to your machine. With that much audio to immerse yourself in, your friends and family may have to send out a search party just to be sure you're OK.
ULTIMATE Software Bundle
The Komplete 9 ULTIMATE software package provides nearly everything Native Instruments has to offer. It includes powerful software like Kontakt and Reaktor for music production using samples and soft synths. It's got nine software synthesizers including Monark, Massive, and Absynth. It features twelve creative studio effects processors, including compressors, EQs, reverbs, along with nine guitar and bass effects packages. And then there's the huge sample library -- ten drum kit bundles, eleven sample packs for pianos and organs, and seven sample packs for strings, horn, and cinematic effects. All software runs as a stand-alone program or as a plugin in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Live, or other popular DAW software.
You know you're getting a serious collection of sound when it ships on its own hard drive! With 370 GB of uncompressed audio samples, the Komplete 9 ULTIMATE collection is far too large to fit on DVD or even on Blu-ray -- that's why Komplete 9 ULTIMATE ships on an external USB hard drive. The applications must be installed to your computer's hard drive (about 10 GB of disc space required) -- but you can keep the samples on the external drive to save space on your own drives.
