Native Instruments Komplete 12 is Available Now!
"The biggest update to date" - Native Instruments Komplete 12 is here to take your music production to the next level with four new bumper collections of instruments, sounds and effects.
Native Instruments Komplete 12 is the latest go-to production library for musicians, sound designers, and producers. Built on the prolific Komplete software line, Komplete 12 reflects Native Instruments' continual drive to provide ever-greater sounds, effects, and playable instruments.
The latest update to Komplete 12 is the "biggest update to date," and brings all the creative tools you'll need to produce stunning, professional tracks.
With brand-new synths, sampled instruments, effects, and - for the first time ever - Expansions sound packs, this update expands the Komplete library to its greatest iteration yet. Komplete 12 is available in four packages, giving access to this premium library at four different price-points.
No matter which version of Komplete you buy, you can be guaranteed a saving of at least 80% when compared to buying each piece of included software separately.
When you buy any Native Instruments product, you'll be joining a complete ecosystem of hardware and software which works seamlessly together. Every feature in Komplete 12 comes pre-mapped to your NI hardware, letting you simply connect your hardware controller and get making music.
Software Download or Physical Installation
Komplete 12 is available to easily install with a physical HDD or pen drive. If you choose the download version, you'll be given access to Native Access - an online platform for easy installation, registration, and updates.
What's New in Komplete 12?
Komplete 12 includes a collection of updated presets and brand-new content for the popular programs Massive, Battery 4, and Monark. Along with brand-new synths, you'll also have access to premium effects, sampled acoustic instruments, and more.
Komplete 12 now includes a carefully-chosen selection of Expansions. These sound packs offer genre-specific synth presets, drum kits, one-shots, samples, and loops. Each Expansion is designed by top artist and sound designers, so you know you'll be getting the very best production-ready sounds for your next project.
The expansions can be used in any DAW with a wide range of NI products, including Massive, Battery 4, Monark, and Reaktor Prism.
As an industry-leading sampling platform, KONTAKT has evolved to host an entire generation of sampled instruments and comes complete with KOMPLETE 12.
KONTAKT 6 expands the on-board library with three new instruments: ANALOG DREAMS - classic synth sounds; ETHEREAL EARTH - combining sampled instruments with digital synthesis; and HYBRID KEYS - a modern twist on classic keyboard instruments. The instruments use the brand-new KONTAKT Play Series - a range of "sonically rich sample libraries that combine powerful sound design with simple playability".
KONTAKT 6 also includes new tools for developers and advanced users. Three new reverbs, a Replika delay module, and a wah wah have been added, alongside a new wavetable engine. Creator Tools, a standalone application, is also added and helps improve the workflows of library builders and instrument creators with its Debugger and Instrument Editor.
MASSIVE X is a brand-new software synthesizer included with KOMPLETE 12 (available after February 2019 - not with Komplete Select edition). Since 2007, MASSIVE has become an essential tool for electronic producers, performers and sound designers in all genres. This version 10 update utilises unparalleled signal processing and a modular approach to sound creation; it also adds new subtractive filters, insert effects, and a performer for complex sound shaping.
