Including some of the music’s most popular synthesizers, effects, and drum kits Komplete Select is perfect for kickstarting your songwriting.

Komplete Kontrol M32 stands apart from many other DAW controllers in that it allows you to control many aspects of your plugins straight from the controller. It’s a brilliant bit of kit as evidenced by our review where we gave it five stars out of five. Combining hotkeys with a four-directional push encoder, you can navigate tracks and adjust plugins in your session all without having to reach for your mouse and keyboard.
As well as more typical controls like pitch bend and mod wheel you also get some really interesting ‘Smart Play’ controls that enhance your songwriting. Scale mode sets the keyboard to a single scale so you can’t play any wrong notes, and a similar chord mode gives you the ability to only play a certain sequence from your chosen scale, making songwriting much easier.
Komplete 14 Select houses two of NI’s heavyweight synthesizers in Monark and Massive, giving you a huge selection of sounds that range from vintage analog right through to clean and pristine modern synth sounds. You’ll also get some more esoteric options with Ethereal Earth and the West Africa percussion selection to add some extra flavor to your compositions.
It also features some must-have mix tools with the Solid Bus Compressor, the highly rated Replika delay plugin, and one of our personal favorites, the Raum reverb plugin. Add a massive selection of sample packs that tackle everything from West Coast hip-hop beats to futuristic Detroit electro sounds and you’ve got the perfect springboard for your next creative endeavor.
