Native Instruments has released KOMPLETE SELECT, described as a premium selection of 10 KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects carefully chosen to give producers working in all genres a wide-ranging toolset for music creation. The release of KOMPLETE SELECT comes in tandem with the KOMPLETE KONTROL 1.1 software update, which NI says opens the KOMPLETE KONTROL platform to all single KOMPLETE Instruments and provides a powerful new set of performance features. KOMPLETE SELECT is free for all registered KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard owners, as well as all registered owners of the MASCHINE 2 software.
Here's NI's full description of the new release:
KOMPLETE SELECT includes 10 carefully selected KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects. Included in this suite are NI's best-selling synth MASSIVE, the new sampled piano instrument THE GENTLEMAN, the true-to-life analog synth emulation MONARK, and the first-of-its-kind acoustic/electronic drum hybrid DRUMLAB. RETRO MACHINES MK2 comprises over 20 pristinely sampled legendary vintage instruments from the 70s and 80s. VINTAGE ORGANS delivers high-quality recordings of classic organs. WEST AFRICA provides the sound traditional West African percussion, playable solo or as polyrhythmic ensembles from an intuitive pattern sequencer. KOMPLETE SELECT also features REAKTOR PRISM, SCARBEE MARK I, and SOLID BUS COMP. Together with a KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard, this bundle provides a production-ready system out of the box. Furthermore, the KOMPLETE KONTROL software is also part of KOMPLETE SELECT. This means that all single KOMPLETE Instruments can now be controlled from an S-Series keyboard. S-Series keyboard owners also now qualify for special crossgrade pricing to NI's award-winning KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE instrument and effect suites.
KOMPLETE SELECT also marks the release of the first KOMPLETE KONTROL software update. The recently-released KOMPLETE KONTROL 1.1 update expands the software with a host of powerful features. Improvements include the ability to route and record MIDI sequences created with KOMPLETE KONTROL's Smart Play functions freely within a DAW environment, as well as sending MIDI to outboard gear. An enhanced preset management system allows quick saving and recall of user presets from within the KOMPLETE KONTROL software. New Touch Kontrol functionality allows users to control more of the software directly from the keyboard, providing a more immersive hardware experience without the need to refer constantly to a computer screen.
