Packed with Native Instruments' latest effects, instruments, and features, Komplete 12 Ultimate offers endless potential for in-the-box sound design and music production. Inside you'll find over 100 products spanning an impressive 45,000 preset sounds and more than 460GB of content.
New features include the award-winning Kontakt 6 sampling engine, with a sleeker interface and three new forward-looking instrument libraries; the new Massive X wavetable synth*, successor to the genre-defining Massive and bursting with sonic possibility; and Session Guitarist, which creates folksy acoustic and driving electric tracks as easily as comping chords. These and other favorites, including Reaktor 6, Battery 4, and Guitar Rig 5 Pro, come pre-loaded onto one handy installation drive for instant access.
*Massive X will be made available as a free download upon its release.
Kontakt 6 + three new libraries
Native Instruments’ award-winning sampling engine is even better in version 6. Fully featured and even easier to navigate, Kontakt 6 unlocks the full potential of your NI and third-party NKS libraries. Onboard scripting and audio routing make Kontakt 6 a true production and performance powerhouse. Komplete 12 Ultimate includes three new Kontakt instruments:
- Analog Dreams: with its mood-matching Miami Vice color scheme and treasure trove of '80s heirloom synths, Analog Dreams is the perfect companion for today's synthwave creator and nostalgia peddler.
- Hybrid Keys*: these hypersampled and pre-processed pianos and keys are based on techniques used by today's chartbusters. If you're looking for a ready-made Drake or Lorde sound, you'll find it here in Hybrid Keys.
- Ethereal Earth*: organic textures meet daring wavetables in the Ethereal Earth library. From Mid-Eastern melodics to devastating drones, this library is perfect for soundscaping.
*Hybrid Keys and Ethereal Earth will be made available as free downloads upon their release.
There’s just no replacement for a strummed acoustic or driving electric guitar in a modern production. Session Guitarist includes the latest versions of two exclusive NI libraries — Electric Sunburst and Strummed Acoustic 2 — for lifelike, organic guitar textures on demand. From delicate arpeggios to convincing palm mutes, Session Guitarist is like feeding your ideas through the mind of a competent session guitar player, with accurate strumming, chording, and leading. More than 100 presets are included to get you started.
NI’s flagship wavetable synth heads in a radical new direction with Massive X, with more sounds and more delicious presets to stoke your analog and digital appetites. Massive X looks to be not just one of the best virtual synths on the market, but one of the best synths, hardware or software, of its time. Highlights include:
- Hands-on modular architecture — drag and drop to route oscillators into one another, create feedback loops, etc.
- Single-page interface, complete with insert FX
- 2 wavetable oscillators with hundreds of presets
- 10 waveshaping modes to affect how wavetables are scanned through
- 5 envelopes and 4 LFOs
- Onboard Monark filter — the best-sounding filter NI makes — plus filters inspired by synth giants
- 6-voice unison creates striking effects
- New, sweeter chorus sound
- Dimension Expander is better than ever
- Better CPU efficiency — no need to Eco Mode
Komplete's ubersampled 22-piece string ensemble can add new dimensions of realism to your cinematic works and pop productions. Smart Play creates sophisticated diatonic harmonies based off single-note inputs. Rhythm Animator creates impressive patterns with step sequencer-like ease. And assignable articulations (slides, staccatos) give players touch control without advanced menu diving.
You'll find over 100 instruments/processors and more than 45,000 preset sounds within Native Instruments' Komplete 12 Ultimate. From the endless creative potential of Reaktor 6 to the authentic world-music textures of the Discover Series to the convincing amp sims of Guitar Rig Pro 5, Ultimate has you covered for virtually any production obstacle you might encounter. You also get excellent mix tools from the Solid Mix Series, including studio-style EQ, Dynamics, and Bus Compression processors, while innovative titles such as the unique sample-and-synthesis-driven Form and the multi-mode Replika XT delay make the latest Komplete more flexible than ever.
If you're rocking a Kontrol S- or A-series keyboard controller or Maschine creation tool, then you'll be blown away by the way Komplete 12 Ultimate fits into your workflow. Not only can you browse your Komplete 12 library for instruments and effects directly from your hardware, but you can also call up individual presets via the tag/category-based browser and tweak them to perfection without touching a mouse. It's the perfect combination of software flexibility with the hands-on control you'd expect from a traditional hardware keyboard or groove machine.
Because Komplete 12 Ultimate is such a powerful tool for songwriting, it's easy to forget that it's perfect for post-production, too. If you produce audio for video on a regular basis, you know that you can never have too much content to pull from. And Komplete 12 really covers all angles — whether you need pulsing tribal drums for an ad, a solemn acoustic piano for a short film, or powerful sound design capabilities to create sound effects, Komplete 12 Ultimate has the tools you need. Best of all, the individual products are all very easy to browse through, making your entire creative process, from writing to mastering, totally streamlined.
