What is your overall opinion of this product?
If you are really looking for a one stop shop solution for sample sounds in your productions , this one is very hard to beat.
Ease of Use
Is the interface of the software easy to use? Is it logically laid out?
Make sure you have enough disk space BEFORE you download or else some features will be missing. I inadvertently chose the wrong drive when I started the download , and even though I aborted the process the download continued and appeared complete, but some factory content was missing. Once the correct drive was chosen , I re downloaded software from the included usb hard drive without incident. I was making music within minutes of installation.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The new and improved GUI in BATTERY 4 is amazing. The sound quality of the samples are simply stunning. Action strings is something I can't live without since using them. When the Kontakt 5 plugin is used in my Pro Tools 10 setup , the DSP hit is very small even with multiple instances. The new studio plugins bundle is also great , particularly the "Reverb Classics" bundle. There are enough professional grade tools here for ANY style of music. It's great to have something to spark creativity , from thought to creation it's in there.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I thought long and hard before pulling the trigger on this one. But have absolutely no regrets I did. The sheer volume of sounds , samples , patches is amazing. The sonic quality of the effects and samples is top notch. Being a gear freak , I find it hard to imagine I'll need anything else besides more hours in a day to create the music I've always wanted to.
great product and wonderful that AMS is around so we can make 0 interest payments!!

The Komplete Review
By: Greg Murphy from Murrieta, CA. USA
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The best features of this product is the quality of the samples and the ability to create fresh new sounds every time you load up Kontakt or Reaktor etc. The best plugin (which is hard) to me would have to be kontakt because of the extensive library it contains and the ability to give you full control of all your sounds. If I could add anything to this product it would be a detailed DVD of instructional videos on how to use all the products. I wouldn't mind paying $50-$100 more for it, if it was effective.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
The product is very easy and fun to use, within at least 30 minutes after the installation and registration process, I was going through all the sounds, creating my own presets for some, and scratching the surface in other areas fairly quickly. It also helps when you have experience with creating sounds or beat making. I learn new things every minute playing with komplete, and since I received to, on the 28th of March, I have put together roughly 7-8 nice quality instrumentals to shop around in the industry, the manual on the product install clean and are also available if you get stuck anywhere and they are helpful and detailed.
Your general opinion of this product.
I love this product, I couldn't have attained these sounds anywhere else. I recommend it to anyone serious about creating they're own sound and character from sound. It's a producers dream.
Was this item an overall good value?
It was a good value, especially after AMS caught on quickly and dropped the price to $999. If you are looking for a vast amount of sounds and opportunities to create quality music at any time for UNDER $1000! This is it!
