Native Instruments’ Komplete bundle has always represented pretty good value for money, but with the launch of the ‘Komplete your DAW’ promotion, it’s become an outright steal.
The facts are these: anyone who owns one of the qualifying DAW packages (Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro, Cakewalk Sonar Producer Edition, Digidesign Pro Tools LE/HD, Magix Samplitude Pro, MOTU Digital Performer, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo) can currently buy Komplete 5 at a 30% discount.
The bundle features 11 bits of software: Kontakt 3, Guitar Rig 3 Software Edition, Massive, Reaktor 5, Absynth 4, Battery 3, Akoustik Piano, Elektrik Piano, B4 II, FM8 and Pro-53. With the discount factored in, it costs just $779 /€699/£530, which means that you’re effectively paying around $71/€64/£48 per title.
If that sounds good to you – and it certainly does to us – head on over to the Native Instruments website or your local dealer. You’ll need to provide proof of ownership of one of the qualifying DAWs in order to get the discount – the promotion expires on July 31 2008.
