Native Instruments announces KOMPLETE 10
Native Instruments announced the next generation of their audio 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 sets 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. KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE will be released online and in retailers October 1, 2014. KOMPLETE 10 costs $499 US / 499 EUR. KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE costs $999 US / 999 EUR.

Universal Audio announced new UAD Software v7.8 for its UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. The software features an all new Thermionic Culture Vulture plug-in ($299 US) modeling the original hardware distortion unit's three distinct all-valve circuit topologies and features Universal Audio's first ever pentode tube circuit model. The Culture Vulture plug-in also offers two features not found on the original hardware - a Dry/Wet Parallel Mix control and a Link function for a perfectly matched stereo image to maximize workflow and preserve balances. Version 7.8 also introduces two new Softube-developed plug-ins: Valley People Dyna-mite ($199 US) and Tonelux Tilt EQ ($99 US). The Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In is an exacting emulation of the classic limiter/expander/gate, a creative tool capable of extreme, yet musical effects on a variety of sound sources. Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ plug-in allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves. With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track. [source]
