I recently purchased Komplete Kontrol along with the S49 keyboard controller)... this package is a beast...

There are loads of helpful videos on youtube. Enjoy...

I am finding some useful sounds in Komplete.

I would like to hear about what others are using it for.

In addition to the Brazilian jazz I usually write, I also direct a classical chamber orchestra for a few concerts a year. I use the Spitfire BBC Strings, Brass and Woodwinds.

Hi Matt,

Did you buy Complete 13? I sort of remember you talking about it.

I have Komplete Ultimate Collectors 12, when 13 came out, there just was not enough new stuff to do the upgrade for me at this point, but I love it. Lots of good stuff in there. Great pianos, strings, horns, woodwinds, drums of all varieties, good reverbs and EQs too. Full version of Kontakt which is great.

I don't know anymore. Too many things that start with K.

For what I have, the Spitfire libraries, the full Kontact 6 is sufficient.

Matt, I predict that an upcoming version of Kontact Komplete will be in your future. The sale price which comes up once or twice a year is too good a deal to miss out on. Once you have gone down the rabbit hole you have to keep going. grin

I agree... too much K...
There is a lot in the Komplete bundle I may never use, but so far, I really love the Kontakt sample player and much of the sample library.
There is a steep learning kurve, and the amount of Kontent is daunting... dang, there's that K again.

Out of curiosity, I counted the number of manuals in Komplete Ultimate CE which I keep in a separate folder and it totalled 136.

Manuals? There are manuals?
Seriously, I'd love to know how you accomplished that, and if you might consider sharing that folder.

I spent most of the day sorting through all the new stuff. There are miles and miles. Forget changing up the presets, that could go on forever.

Assigning various sounds to pads on two keyboards is a lot of work to figure out.

Here is a first attempt at mashing some of this together.

Thanks bloc-head. Many things I don't have figures out yet. Spitfire is causing Studio One to crash at times. Sine player is also locking things up.

Everything else seems to be working.

The way that Kontakt is laid out makes it easy to find stuff.


Onward through frog...lol

This method is for PC Users. Using File Explorer, go to the NI Library folder that was created when you installed Komplete and in the upper right search bar, type *.pdf

This should now display all the manuals which are in pdf format. From there, you can copy into a separate folder.

Thank you Patrick, I'm going to do that right now... then the real work begins...

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

This free update also includes the most recent build of our DAW Plugin (3.9.12).

Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
