Komplete 9 Ultimate is Amazing!

What is your overall opinion of this product?
While deciding to upgrade to Komplete 9, from 8, I decided to stretch the budget for the extra instruments. I was unsure about this decision until the day the product arrived. With the addition of Giant, Damage, Session Strings Pro, and Alicia's Keys, the upgrade to 9 Ultimate is a no-brainer. I feel the urge to compose music more often, and with greater ease.
Ease of Use
Is the interface of the software easy to use? Is it logically laid out?
I am able to easily use this software in Pro Tools 10. I assign a MIDI track to each instrument, which reside in Kontakt, then I buss each instrument out of kontakt onto their own instrument channels Pro Tools. I am able to use the vintage reverbs and compressors that came with 9 Ultimate in aux sends. I can also easily integrate all instruments into Maschine!
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The features of this project exceeded my expectations. The Giant piano sound make me feel like I am playing in a large venue. I find myself composing for hours. Session strings Pro make articulating the strings easy. (I can compose, and not spend endless hours trying to make strings sound "real"). Damage is an amazing addition to the percussion and drum sounds in my compositions.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
For the ease of use, and positive impact this software has had on my music production process and workflow, the price is not high enough! I know this sounds wrong, but for as much as this has helped me, and influenced me, I consider it invaluable. What is the price for endless creative options? $649 for an upgrade sounds good to me!
