Native Instruments Release KOMPLETE 12 plus a whole lot more!

Native Instruments announced yesterday the release of KOMPLETE 12 along with a whole slew of other new products, most interesting for me is a range of more affordable controller keyboards called the A-Series but I will get to those in another post. For now lets look at the software!

KOMPLETE 12
Since its release in 2003, KOMPLETE has undisputedly become an essential purchase for producers, musicians, and sound designers, by bundling a wide range of innovative and high-quality software instruments and effects at an unbeatable price. Each successive KOMPLETE generation offers artists a jolt of inspiration, and the biggest update ever, KOMPLETE 12, is no exception.

KOMPLETE 12 is available in four differently-sized packages: KOMPLETE 12, SELECT, ULTIMATE, and the new Collector’s Edition – a fifteenth anniversary celebration that packs 150 instruments, effects, and Expansions on to a silver aluminium HDD. New additions include KONTAKT 6, SESSION GUITARIST – ELECTRIC SUNBURST, the innovative kick and bass synth TRK-01, and for the first time ever, Expansions sound packs. KOMPLETE 12 also includes MASSIVE X – an entirely new instrument that honors and expands on the legacy of the legendary MASSIVE synthesizer.

By coincidence we were just discussing the standalone price of KONTAKT 5 in another thread and then a couple of days later NI release a new version of it!

KONTAKT 6
Kontakt 6 is the next generation of the world’s leading sampler. Continuing the development from sampler to sampling platform, Kontakt has evolved into the host for an encyclopedic range of sampled instruments from countless instrument builders. As a platform, Kontakt supports the whole music production industry, powering the instruments used by composers and producers, and providing a development framework for instrument builders.

For those using KONTAKT mainly as a host for instruments, version 6 expands the on-board library with three new instruments: ANALOG DREAMS invokes legendary synth sounds, ETHEREAL EARTH combines sampled traditional instruments with digital synthesis, and HYBRID KEYS provides a modern digital twist on classic keyboard instruments. The instruments debut the KONTAKT Play Series – a range of sonically rich sample libraries that combine powerful sound design with simple playability.

For instrument builders and advanced users who work in the edit view, new possibilities for sound design exist thanks to five new effects – three new reverbs, a Replika delay module, and a wah-wah – plus a new wavetable engine. Creator Tools, a standalone application, rounds off the package. Designed to improve the workflows of library builders and instrument creators, it consists of a Debugger and an Instrument Editor.

PRICING
The world’s leading production suite receives its biggest update ever: New synths, new sampled instruments, new effects, and, for the first time ever, Expansions sound packs.

Available October 1, 2018

KOMPLETE 12 SELECT: 199 USD, 199 EUR, 24,800 YEN, 159 GBP, 299 AUD, 259 CAD, 1,699 CNY

KOMPLETE 12: 599 USD, 599 EUR, 69,800 YEN, 479 GBP, 899 AUD, 799 CAD, 4,699 CNY

KOMPLETE 12 ULTIMATE: 1,199 USD, 1,199 EUR, 139,800 YEN, 959 GBP, 1,799 AUD, 1,599 CAD, 9,499 CNY

KOMPLETE 12 ULTIMATE COLLECTOR’S EDITION: 1,599 USD, 1,599 EUR, 198,000 YEN, 1,279 GBP, 2,299 AUD, 2,099 CAD, 12,499 CNY

KONTAKT 6 PRICING
The sixth generation of the industry’s leading sampling platform adds new builder tools and brand new instruments.

Available October 1, 2018

399 USD, 399 EUR, 49,800 YEN, 339 GBP, 549 AUD, 519 CAD, 2,999 CNY

Update for owners of KONTAKT 1-5: 99 USD, 99 EUR, 12800 YEN, 89 GBP, 149 AUD, 129 CAD, 799 CNY

Shame the price of Kontakt has not fallen. It is still a hefty chunk of change for a software sampler, especially given all the competition out there. Also it does have issues with third party samples, or at least the previous version did. Not sure if they have sorted all that in Kontakt 6 but definitely interested to find out.

I agree. That is not bad considering what you are getting . . . .

Only caveat is the little item I posted a while back from ChickenSystems, announcing that certain functionality

had been hobbled since Kontakt5. (CS are in discussion with NI ATM and will probably report the outcome in due course)

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11711#p69517

Given CS's areas of activity (Sample Conversion) with TranslatorPro and the Creator Series -

they are understandable "concerned".

All that aside, having the FULL version of Kontakt gives you unrestrained access to many free and low-cost

instruments from 3rd party authors . . .

NOTABLY - "The Shell" from HollowSun - for 8 Quid :shock: - making it easy to create your own Kontakt Instruments

from your own samples WITHOUT resorting to coding . . . .

Yup, I pulled the trigger on it last night, as that was good value to me, and it means I can now go for some full version only instruments for my Crimbo present :)

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I also pulled the trigger today on an update from some ancient Kontakt to Komplete. The Grandeur piano alone was worth it!!!
