Native Instruments have released KOMPLETE START, a freely downloadable bundle of virtual instruments and audio effects for use in any VST, AU, and AAX plugin compatible digital audio workstation on PC and Mac.
KOMPLETE START features six virtual synthesizers, nine sample-based instruments, two effects, over 1,500 audio loops, along with the freeware Player editions of Kontakt and Reaktor. Most of the included content was previously available for free download separately, but interested users can now find them conveniently packed into a single product bundle.
Beginner producers who are looking for their first set of quality music-making tools will certainly find that KOMPLETE START provides the perfect starting point. Virtual synthesizers like LazerBass, Carbon 2, and TRK-01 Bass deliver professional-quality electronic sounds which can be further enhanced with the included Supercharger compressor. The Band and World sound packs for Kontakt Player provide classic guitar, bass, ethnic percussion, and drum tones which will be useful to any music composer. Native Instruments have also included a selection of presets from the premium Analog Dreams, Ethereal Earth, and Hybrid Keys sound libraries.
You can hear some of the sounds included in the bundle if you check out Andrew Huang’s video embedded below. It goes to show how much you can do with not much else than these free software instruments. Pair the sounds included in KOMPLETE START with a freeware DAW like SONAR Platinum or Tracktion T7 and let your musical adventures begin.
