I recommend it for musicians that have a home recording studio with intermediate skills and looking to expand their plug in options. I have Steven Slate Drums and now the Komplete elements and could not be happier. This is one man's opinion but I would buy it again.
Excellent instruments and synth suite of plug ins. Great for creating jingles, snipets, and ading fullness to my home recordings. The guitar rig elements are more than worth the price at full price. I have only been using it a week but I may use this as much or more than my Pod Farm 2.5 platnium. The synth sounds are great in my songs that are more based on Jesu (atmospheric metal) instrumentation. Buy it is all I can say.
Read features and the sounds are incredible. Expanded my options for plug in sounds.
Bought as a stupid deal of the day and it was worth it. This software is worth it at the full price if you are looking to expand your plug in sounds.

Ordered this product expecting it to come with a DVD chock full of the instruments and sounds. When I received the product I opened it up, only to find the case had a spot for the DVD but it was missing. I called Musician's Friend to inquire about this, and after being put on hold a few time, they said it's a digital download now. If this is the case, I wasn't sure why I had to wait for them to send me a physical package to get my serial number. Ok, so I tried to access the software directly from Native Instruments. The product is hard to find on their website, and there's no instructions anywhere on how to install. I finally figured my way around and used their software to access the downloads. I received the "players", but the instruments and sounds were not there. I tried to contact Native Instruments SEVERAL times over 10 days and still haven't received any help from them. Every day I'd check back, and eventually I found a location on their site to download the .iso disk of the DVD. After downloading that, I was able to load the instruments and sounds. Someone without a computer background would surely be stuck. I'm still unsure if I was supposed to receive the DVD in my package, and that it was just missing. But I shouldn't have to waste my time downloading everything, when it claims it all comes on a DVD. I also tried calling Native Instruments, and when I did I received a message that they are hosting some special event and to try back later.... Bad service....

Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE Elements Software:

This came free with another software purchase and its really great. NI offers a lower level of the same stuff for free on their site and if you are reading this and don't have the freebie....get it.
This product only offers a few upgrades over the freebie, but they a really nice, including one kit from the abbey road drums series and two nice synths. Also more samples and more amps in GR5 (six instead of 1) Try the freebie first, there is a good chance you will be back.

      Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE Elements Software:

      This product is ok for the money but nothing spectacular. There are some very nice samples but there also quite a few that are useless. I couldn't authorize this product due to a message that my serial number was invalid. I opened a support ticket with tech support 3 weeks ago and still have not heard back from anyone. Very poor tech support from native instruments. I hope that when they finally do decide to get back to me that they can help me get this resolved.

      Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE Elements Software:

      At a discounted price it's a good value. The virtual amps are good but VERY limited. The licensing software for this is horrible as well as it's website. Initially I had to wait a couple of days for the site to come back up to register it.

        Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE Elements Software:

        If you are looking to get started with Komplete, but aren't ready to drop the dough on the full version, this package is the way to go. There's plenty of great sounds, from drums to synthesizers, and even a rather nice sounding upright piano. The program isn't too hard to use, and is certainly worht the money.

        This is a limited version of Komplete but it does include Reaktor Spark and Abbey Road 60's Drums which makes it well worth the price. If you get it on sale, it's even a better value. If you're a user of Reaktor Player and Kontakt Player, I say it's worth it to pay for the extras. It has a few more ensembles and nki's than the player. The Guitar Rig also has a few extras as well.

            Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE Elements Software:

            This product was a complete waste of time and money. First of all the serial number I was sent could not be authorized through service center. I made several support requests before finally getting some help which in the end still did not resolve all the issues I was having. Furthermore a lot of the samples could not be found anywhere on any of my hard drives. I never had such a terrible experience with installing similar products before. Again don't waste your time or money!

              I've had the Native Instruments Komplete Elements for several years and just bought the upgrade for an amazing sale price. You cannot get a better deal with the variety of sounds for both midi and wave files. If you're looking to expand your sound library, you won't find a better deal. It's easy to install, register and run. Super easy and intuitive.

                      This product gives you a fairly wide variety of things to start making music using Native Instruments Software. I run these as virtual instruments in my daw, and it works great. The guitar amp sims are pretty good with usable tone and effects. The upright piano and Abbey Road 60's Drums sound really good. That's about as far as i got so far.

                          Like I said. I picked this up cheap. I had no problem installing, I already had an account with NI. I have bass and guitar already from NI, this was just a add on to the collection. Had a 30.00 coupon to use for any other software from that company. That alone was worth the purchase

                            This was a good deal for the price. I got a lot of functionality out of ProTools with this.

                                It is well known that Native Instruments makes the best virtual instruments and to get going at this price is a no-brainer. If you are thinking about getting Komplete but want to make sure it works on your rig first before dropping a load of cash, get his version. I picked it up on sale for twenty nine, which an insane price! It comes with a small handful of sounds designed to "give you a taste" so you want more, and boy do you want more! After a week I took the plunge on the full Komplete.

                                Note: You must now wait 60 days before you can transfer a NI license, so if you buy this, then get Komplete (like I did), you will have to wait a bit before you can sell it.

                                      Great software, but it's not for everybody. You will need some above average computer skills to set this thing up and getting it running properly. You also will need a good audio interface, a set of powered monitors, and headphones. If you have all this and play around with it for a while to figure everything out you will have a really nice setup.

                                      Komplete is a very extensive and complex suite of programs. This product limits some of those choices and has limited sound banks, so it actually makes it easier to learn the basics. For this amount of money, it does have a great set of sounds, but it does make you want more. It's a good step up from what they offer for free, but well below the full expensive software suite (of course).
