Native Instruments Releases Komplete 7 – Includes 5 New Instruments & Effects
Native Instruments has released five new products with their new KOMPLETE 7 Instruments and Effects range. The new products include the modal synthesizer REAKTOR PRISM, the studio reverb REFLEKTOR, the organ emulation VINTAGE ORGANS, the effect suite TRAKTOR’S 12 and the amp emulation RAMMFIRE. All products are based on the technology of KONTAKT, REAKTOR and GUITAR RIG, and can be used both within the full versions and the free player versions of these instruments.
The unique REAKTOR PRISM synthesizer was designed by Stephan Schmitt, and utilizes the new modal synthesis capabilities of the latest REAKTOR 5.5 generation. It generates highly expressive tones and textures that range from powerful basses and leads to deep, organic soundscapes and intricate physical-modelling sounds.
REFLEKTOR is a high-performance reverb processor for use within GUITAR RIG 4 and the new GUITAR RIG 4 PLAYER. Based on Native Instruments’ patent-pending Zero Latency Convolution, it combines the quality of impulse response technology with the efficiency and flexibility of algorithmic reverbs to generate both extremely realistic room ambiences and creative, highly original reverberation effects.
The new VINTAGE ORGANS instrument provides the charismatic electromagnetic organ sound of the 60s and 70s. Based on sampling in combination with the advanced KONTAKT engine, it recreates three tonewheel organs and two transistor-based models complete with their authentic sound shaping and effect facilities.
The performance effects suite TRAKTOR’S 12 is derived from Native Instruments’ leading DJ software, and makes the effects arsenal of TRAKTOR PRO available for use as a plug-in in any DAW or music sequencer. (Interesting concept…) All twelve effects, including unique algorithms like the “Mulholland Drive”, “Reverse Grain” and “Beat Masher” are optimized for intuitive and expressive real-time sound manipulation.
The new RAMMFIRE amp emulation was developed in close collaboration with one of Rammstein’s guitarists, Richard Z. Kruspe, and models the original recording chain that is behind the band’s trademark guitar sound. It can be used both as an expansion to the amplifier arsenal in GUITAR RIG 4 and as an individual product in combination with the free GUITAR RIG 4 PLAYER.
The five new KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects are now available for individual download purchase in the NI Online Shop, and are also included in the new KOMPLETE 7 bundle. Pricing: RAMMFIRE $59 / €49; REAKTOR PRISM $79 / €69 EUR; REFLEKTOR $119 / €99; TRAKTOR’S 12 $79 / €69; VINTAGE ORGANS $119 / €99. More information on Komplete 7.
