Late last year, we reviewed the new
and the Komplete Ultimate Software setup which was rather expensive all together, but still provided a superb experience when using them together to craft beats. NI will now offer the Komplete Kontrol Keyboards with a free software download that will give users lots of Komplete sounds and melodies to start crafting beats without needing to purchase additional software. The NI team also has also launched a limited-time KEYS TO KOMPLETE Sales Special. With this special deal, from now until May 31st, 2015; owners the earlier editions of KOMPLETE and KOMPLETE ULTIMATE instrument and effect suites are eligible for special update offers when they buy a KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard.
The NI Komplete Kontrol S49 Keyboard and Komplete Ultimate combo setup that we reviewed costs well over $2000 to get all of the instruments and sounds along with the keyboard. This was a steep initial investment for some, so NI team decided to include a starter-pack of sounds and instruments from the Komplete lineup absolutely free with the purchase of every Komplete Kontrol Keyboard. This makes the initial investment and startup a lot less as you can get a Komplete Keyboard for less than $500. This new development is called Komplete Select and will include the MASSIVE synth, the new sampled piano THE GENTLEMAN, the MONARK synth, and the DRUMLAB, providing a production-ready system out of the box. Komplete Select will also include VST support by this summer which will open up the Komplete Kontrol software to third-party plug-ins so the keyboard can control all types of different non-NI instruments.
In addition to the new Komplete Select development, the NI team is also launching the KEYS TO KOMPLETE Sales Special which gives owners of older versions of KOMPLETE special update deals on the latest KOMPLETE instruments and effects when a new KONTROL S-Series Keyboard is purchased from now until May 31st.
