Is this really worth making a new Komplete? I say RIP OFF!!!

Loads of new stuff, cheap upgrade deals and a brilliant way to get into Komplete for newcomers? Of course it's worth it. I got Komplete 6 last year and the Komplete packs are very, very good value - even if you end up using only part of it. I'll certainly be getting the upgrade!

A lot of the "new" content is just Kore Packs, although they are certainly welcome as inclusions. $60 price increase is probably worth it now that there is an organ included again...wonder how it stacks up against B4?

only thing new is the kore packs bundled in and they aren't even really great ones either.

I'm going to pass on this update. NI, you're going to have to try harder!

I was just about to upgrade to Komplete 6 but it's worth holding on 'til September :)

I think it takes a special kind of cynic find any problem with Komplete 7. There are so many titles it's "worth buying just for" - in my case Kontakt + all the vintage keys.

I wish they'd release a Kore 2 hardware controller with a wretched X-Y pad on it, since most of the synths are geared towards them! Kore almost seems worth having in the light of all this.

Native Instruments have come a long way since "those guys who replace all their Cs with Ks"

PS - does anyone else think that Rammstien seems like an odd choice to be the new face of Guitar Rig - not least of all for their lack of signature guitar sound?

Must be a German thing

Some killer mostly filler. very disappointing bundle if you ask me, but then I dont really need 4 different multi sampled pianos.

Now if they would let me buy 3 or 4 packs I really did want at a discount price then Id be all over that.

I have the new Komplete 7 installed on my iMac. All hundred gigabytes of it. Will it be a good software replacement for my Nord Electro 3?

Stay tuned for my in-depth review
