Massive X looks to be not just one of the best virtual synths on the market, but one of the best synths, hardware or software, of its time. Also please feel free to discuss orchestral libraries since I've been curious about them for a while, one reason I'd get Kontakt is for orchestral stuff. Works like it should in Cubase 9. There are better tools out there: Brainspawn Forte I have a copy of it I'm trying to sell and Cantabile for Windows, and I hear that Apple's Bandstand part of Logic or Logic Pro or something is quite good as well for Mac users. Basically, you get so much more with Komplete than with just Kontakt, so for the miniscule price difference it's definitely worth getting. Speaking of which, did you send me mine yet, or did that check come in yet? It might sound too good to be true, but Native Instruments buck the trend with this offer. Over 2000 sounds to explore and edit with Loops, Kits, Hits, utilities and more.
Kore 2 seems like it's meant more for live performance, but I'm wondering if it's been useful for anyone for tweaking parameters. But Ive gone legit with Cubase 10. Rhythm Animator creates impressive patterns with step sequencer-like ease. I don't think any of the Kontakt libraries are worth buying Kontakt over. Hey, I'm thinking of grabbing Kontakt 4. This was a small part of your post but I just wanted to double check that there wasn't some part of Logic I missed out on.
From delicate arpeggios to convincing palm mutes, Session Guitarist is like feeding your ideas through the mind of a competent session guitar player, with accurate strumming, chording, and leading. All the content can be browse, preview and play from the included Komplete Kontrol software. Thanks for this heads up. I always used to get sidetracked by plugins but studio one has somehow made my workflow drastically more efficient. It also does some cool stuff for live performance, but I haven't touched that yet. Yeah, they seem fixed but I've never thought of it as a problem for me as they're categorised by type and stack four across so there's not a great deal of scrolling to do depending on how many libraries you have of course.
It also has some features like morphing between two different sounds or presets, step sequencer, and velocity layers but I haven't ever used those. And, of course, you'll have to tag those presets on your own if you want them to be searchable in Kore's database, which'll be tedious. In Studio one I love the layout. I have an Ableton Push for transport controls and menu diving. Thanks guys, I actually ordered Komplete this week. . Tbh I don't mind using my computer.
Within each plugin, there's a search mechanism to let you search by name, by attribute search, for example, for a Bright, Warm Synth Lead , or both. Create out-of-this world sounds with 70 built in presets, built-in cab sims, effects, and more — no synth knowledge required. You could browse using the Maschine to select the instrument, use the favourite button on there and still play it on the keyboard. For example: - Komplete Kontrol doesn't let me move my favorite libraries to the top like Kontakt does so it's extra navigation to get to a library. By the way, for anyone wondering, I never did make the plunge to get Komplete, and instead have continued to use free sounds for the past eight or so months. I'd love to get some outboard gear soon.
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. I'd say it's more useful the more you use presets; if you create a lot of your own sounds from scratch, probably not worth getting. Smart Play creates sophisticated diatonic harmonies based off single-note inputs. Yes it does right now. Still, I use it all the time for amping up Shreddage and sometimes for processing bass parts.
I have the Keylab for my room and for when I start getting into rack synths and stuff. Five instruments and a selection of ready-for-action drum loop production kits, consisting of drum loops, single loop tracks, and individual slices. It does in the software but not on the Mk1 keyboards. Whenever one thing needs fixing, or a new feature needs introducing, you'd have to repeat it for each and every Komplete product. More than 100 presets are included to get you started. Studio one is More pleasing in what way specifically? I still feel like there's a lot to explore in it.
It also does some cool stuff for live performance, but I haven't touched that yet. Here's the breakdown of Komplete. I'm really enjoying it to be honest. I've never really struggled moving between them. Im assuming fairly recent because of the channel strips that you mentioned. The 8 knobs let you drill down into the categories quite quickly.
I'd been wondering that too recently. It's great for electronic music production for sure, not so much for gigantic orchestral templates. I've used them in countless electronic tracks. The only gripe I have with C10 is that when recording midi, for some reason Cubase won't capture the first inputted note if it's at the beginning of a midi section,, because it some how recognises it as being pressed before recording starts. I think the Mk2 ones may have a hardware favourites button. Please Report if Komplete Start Bundle Freebie has a problem such as expired, broken link, sold out, etc while the deal still exists. The latest additions to the ecosystem help you go from your first ideas, to iterations, to playing out finished tracks in one seamless flow.
