KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE

KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE

Berlin, September 2, 2014 – Native Instruments today announced the next 
generation of their industry-standard production suites. KOMPLETE 10 and 
KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE come with six brand-new instruments – ROUNDS, 
KONTOUR, POLYPLEX, and the three new sampled pianos that comprise THE 
DEFINITIVE PIANO COLLECTION. KOMPLETE 10 now includes 39 instruments and 
effects. KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE includes all 75 current KOMPLETE 
Instruments and Effects at the time of release and over 440 GB of 
content. Notably, the prices of these bundles remain the same, 
increasing the saving to almost 90% over the cost of purchasing the 
instruments and effects separately.

Both KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE debut the brand-new ROUNDS, 
KONTOUR, and POLYPLEX. ROUNDS combines powerful sound design 
capabilities with advanced sequencing techniques, allowing users to play 
melodies, chords, and arpeggios while sequencing and morphing sounds in 
real time. KONTOUR is the latest synthesizer from NI founder Stephan 
Schmitt – an extremely responsive synth capable of organic textures from 
mallets to plucked and bowed strings to distorted, aggressive and noisy 
sounds. POLYPLEX delivers an intuitive, fun way to design drum kits. Up 
to four samples per sound slot are randomized on the global, sound or 
sample level. A host of effects including dynamics, reverb, glitch, and 
more are also on board for additional sound shaping.

Also included in both KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE is THE 
DEFINITIVE PIANO COLLECTION – three new high-definition pianos offering 
unprecedented detail, and a varied and nuanced sonic range. THE 
GENTLEMAN is a sampled instrument based on an upright piano from 1908. 
Sampled with all the original parts, the instrument’s delicate and 
expressive sound gives producers distinctive, turn-of-the-century 
character with a supreme level of control for their recordings. THE 
GRANDEUR is a detailed sampled instrument of a beloved concert grand 
piano. Its bright, silky top end and booming, full bass are equally 
suited to a variety of styles including mainstream pop, jazz, and 
classical productions. THE MAVERICK is a recreation of a sonically 
singular instrument – a 1905 concert grand made for the Prince of 
Prussia. THE MAVERICK delivers a wide range of color and an 
unconventional sound where each note is full of character. These three 
pianos are also available for purchase separately or as a 
specially-priced bundle.

KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE also ship with the KOMPLETE KONTROL 
software. This allows users to browse all KOMPLETE Instrument sounds 
from one interface, accelerating workflow and providing a clear overview 
of all related sounds tag-based simplicity. KOMPLETE KONTROL also allows 
producers to access key functionality directly from the new KOMPLETE 
KONTROL S-Series keyboards. Registered users of KOMPLETE 9 and KOMPLETE 
9 ULTIMATE will receive a free download for the KOMPLETE KONTROL 
software, giving them the same functionality on KOMPLETE KONTROL 
S-Series keyboards as KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE users.

Along with these brand-new instruments, each bundle comes with several 
new additions released since KOMPLETE 9. KOMPLETE 10 now features 39 
products, over 12,000 sounds, and over 130 GB of instruments and 
effects, including DRUM LAB, SESSION HORNS, and SUPERCHARGER. KOMPLETE 
10 ULTIMATE delivers 75 products, over 17,000 sounds, and over 440 GB of 
instruments and effects, such as ACTION STRIKES, MOLEKULAR, and RISE & 
HIT – all stored on a USB hard drive for convenient installation. Both 
bundles also feature best-selling KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects such 
as the award-winning KONTAKT 5, GUITAR RIG 5 PRO, and NI’s flagship 
modular synthesizer REAKTOR 5. MASSIVE, FM8, and ABSYNTH 5 cover the 
complete spectrum of synthesis for any production task.

KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE will be released online and in 
retailers October 1, 2014. KOMPLETE 10 costs $499 / 499 €. KOMPLETE 10 
ULTIMATE costs $999 / 999 €. Special pricing for KOMPLETE 10 and
