A detailed overview of the eleven instruments that make up Native Instruments’ KOMPLETE suite, including KONTAKT, REAKTOR, GUITAR RIG, and MASSIVE.
In "Native Instruments 102: Complete NI KOMPLETE," you’ll take a close look at the eleven instruments that make up Native Instruments’ KOMPLETE suite. For each instrument, you’ll spend time covering its user interface, including how to select and edit sounds. For the more complex instruments, there are several lessons devoted to exploring the more intricate features that let you really customize your sounds.
You’ll begin with a look at KOMPLETE’s two sampled pianos – AKOUSTIC PIANO (which models several types of acoustic pianos) and ELEKTRIK PIANO (which models several types of electric pianos). Next up is ABSYNTH, a great tool for sound design, and then the B4 II, an emulation of a B3 organ, and PRO-53, an emulation of a Prophet-5.
This tutorial-video goes on to explore the soft synths MASSIVE and FM8, BATTERY (the drum and percussion sampler), KONTAKT (the software sampler), REAKTOR (the sound construction kit), and GUITAR RIG (the virtual guitar rack).
Each section of this KOMPLETE course concludes with an exercise that uses a specific KOMPLETE instrument in conjunction with Native Instruments’ super-synth KORE. The exercises are designed to review the material discussed in the parallel section of the Native Instruments 101: Core NI KORE course. So, for example, the exercise in section 5 of KOMPLETE 102 uses concepts discussed in section 5 of the Core NI KORE course.

The course is well laid out. Even with all the updates that came after, there are a lot of useful information about this product.
Most of these instruments have been updated since this course was made but, it's still good for a lot of other reasons.
Scott Freiman definitly held it down, I'm in information overload at the moment, whew! Thanks MPV for the favorite option, now I can revisit certain tutorials as needed.
An awesome package of music software from a few years ago. Even though many of the software programs in the review are outdated with newer versions, it was still nice to get an insight into how previous versions operated. I long for the day when I can make full use of the potential of this suite.
Very good overview of NI Komplete suite of apps and instruments. Would feel less overwhelmed if I decide to purchase the product. Kudos to the instructor.
Good video, but it needs an update, specially for the parts related to Kore, which was discontinued.
Wow. The intro to NI's Absynth was just that extra boost I needed to get me to try on Absynth courses. It simplified the process and signal flow such that Absynth doesn't look so daunting anymore.....
Old material (Komplete 5), but most of it still applies. I'd really like to see this updated to a current version, as the focus on Kore doesn't apply anymore. NI just announced Komplete 9.
Hi, this is ok but Komplete 5 its quite out of date as the latest release its Komplete 9 Ultimate. Being this massive bundle an amazing and important tool for music production at any style, an up to date and great tutorial of komplete 9 would be MUCH appreciated and very valuable for most of us ;) Thanks!!
It's a good overview of the previous version of Komplete instruments. It has lot's of good information but it would be better if it was up to date.
This a very nice tutorial but a bit outdated because there is a lot of example using kore and is based on komplete 5 ! i loved the FM8,reaktor, massive, guitar rig and kontakt tutorials, if you feel overwhelmed by kompplete this tutorial is the start to your exploration at a bargain price !
I was disappointed with this tutorial. Its quite outdated, being about Komplete 5, when we are now up to version 8. A lot of the included software has changed since this was recorded. There is also a heavy focus on Kore, which in my opinion, should be saved for its own videos. Hey Martin can we have an update please?
Scott Frieman "Core NI Kore" I'll admit the title had me thrown for a bit. In new to Kore and I didn't know if "Core" was some add-on to Kore. Rest assured this tutorial is "Kore" and although it says 101 - it's not just an introduction, you'll be up and working in no time. Scott's teaching technique is impeccable. He's very clear, evenly paced, and explains each nuance of Kore. He uses an iterative approach where at the end of each section you have a working knowledge of using Kore at one Level. Never fear if he says "I'll get in more details later" about a feature later, He does, it will be later, when appropriate. To complete this iteration it's just not important now to get into details. Everything I want to know about Kore is included. This video save my investment in Kore - it got it off the shelf of things to use and into my working tool set. One note, I'm a drummer, not a keyboardist. I also play bass and guitar at times. Kore is useful to all. I do wish there was one more section on using the Kore Controller totally with out touching the mouse. As if using it in a live playing situation. One small problem was one of the tutorials explaining the hardware was missing the little window actually show the hardware. I do prefer the download option. I like that I can carry this with me and use it as reference material live. The other night a keyboard master I was playing with had a keyboard failure. I couldn't quite remember how to pull in another midi source but a quick review of the tutorial and the keyboard player was getting a great piano sound through my computer. "Core 101 Kore" saved the gig. I'm on Windows 7 X64 and NED does work native. I am however able to bring it up in Windows XP Mode (Windows Virtual PC) It's not as smooth as I'd like but still usable. I have to go, my computer installed an update after being off the net for a few weeks and it wants to reboot. Thus is the life of a musician. Can't keep up wit...
this is a great tutorial series that covers all aspects of this software in depth! im waiting for the komplete 7 tutorials since i just purchased it today. please lets get those komplete 7 lessons in!
This is such a great introduction to Native Instruments. The individual tutorials aren't all that in-depth, but they give you enough information to make it a lot easier to explore further on your own.
Even though I'm on Komplete 6, this was still incredibly helpful. Just like the Kore 2 tutorial, this was organized well and edited well. Everything included was a great way to get started. Now I just wish that a video on Reaktor 5 would be created (although I'll understand if you wait for R6).
This is a good video series. Only issue is that they have now released Komplete 6 which has quite a few differences. Also the guy talked about Kore quite a bit and Kore is not in Komplete. I am quite happy with most of it and it is mainly the fact that Komplete has been updated that downgrades this to 3 stars
Great for a quick and useful overview. Anxiously awaiting part 2 updated for Komplete 6 (Guitar Rig 4, Absynth 5, Kontakt 4) and with a bit more depth into the others. And a Reaktor TNT and Kontakt 4 focused tutorials would be extremely helpful.
An excellent basic to intermediate tour of Komplete 5, with tie-ins to Kore. Not that this video takes the place of the manuals, but it sure makes things easier to understand when you can see where to click and hear what resulted. Scott Frieman is a very good presenter. Hope there are advanced tutorials offered in the future.
This tutorials is asum, how to get started with NI Komplete. I hope that you guys release the second tutorial.
Fantastic tutorial. Very well put together.
The tutorial by Scott Freiman was definitively worth the money. Five stars from me.
Great stuff, covers all the basics and after this you're ready to go... Now waiting for full tutorials on how to work with Maschine and Kontakt 3!
The Best - Excellent Komplete…
There have always been areas of Native Instruments'... "instruments" that I'd dare not tackle, bececause it seemed daunting to me. The NI 102: NI Komplete tutorial has opened the door to allow me to dig deeper, and get more out of this powerful collection. I definitely dig that! These Instruments/Effects are deep enough to have an entire tutorial dedicated to them indiviually, but there's more than enough here to get you going.
The way that the Tutorial is built makes for a fast learning curve. It also motivates me even more to try out different things. I recommend this tutorial!
Really good work .What about to get to know more about Arturia s synth bundle now ??? I'll definitely purchase one .
First of all - Thank You for your hard work ! English is not my main language , but this tutorial by Scott Freiman is very clear and easy to understand . I have found an answers to all my questions about NI Complete . Great !
This was a pretty good tutorial for someone fresh with these intuitive programs. I definitely can't wait to see a follow-up to this, yet I think it may be beneficial for both parties if each instrument had it's own dedicated tutorial video, such as Kore... namely Reaktor 5?
Very good tutorial! A++++++++
A must for anyone who is starting with Ni Synths. The best downloadable tutorial available so far. Easy to understand and pleasant to listen to. The only reason for a 4 star rating is that the excerises are too short and too simple. Still, this is the best tutorial for Native Instruments Komplete 5 that I found after a very long search.
Voice is good, content is good. I liked the course well.
Not bad. Some tutorials are a bit brief and very similar to what you can get of the NI website, like the massive tutorial. Fm 8 tutorial was great and in depth. Overall worth checking out. Only thing that did annoy me a bit was the exercises are with Kore and not really on the synth themselves. I understand that komplete and kore work together really well but I was hoping for more on the synths in this one. Like creating a bass sound from scratch with massive or an arpeggiatored line in Fm8 as an exercise. The kore tutorials should concentrate on kore and the komplete on the individual synths.
A very useful course...native instruments Komplete is vast...It would have taken me forever to get started with just the manuals....If you've just got Komplete...get this course.
The Kore tutorial was excellent... this one is even better. It is a must have for anyone who owns Komplete. And if you own Kore as well, you are in for a treat. Especially good for Reaktor and FM8. The instructor is not only very knowledgeable... he is a very good teacher. his voice tone keeps the listener interested. Well worth the price... and more.
All of your tutorials have been so helpful, i have bought so many, i keep coming back to learn new skills from you. The course outline and the style are easy, most tutorials out there require you to watch a lengthy one or you have to keep clicking lessons one after the other. yours is different. well done! I am yet to see the kontakt part of the komplete set of tutorials. how soon will i be able to watch them. Thanks babatunde (London)
Excellent tutorials presented in such a user friendly manner. Really opened up a whole new world for me in terms of sound creation and moving away from presets to start creating some seriously cool stuff.
This Tutorial was excellent i learned alot of features i had overlooked in the past Battery's loop slicing has been one of my favourtites. Only Thing is im wondering when it will be updated cause reaktor is the main reason i got this :)
The tutorials on Ni's Komplete have been in most instances beyond my expectations. Each topic is delivered clearly and methodically. I have not received the videos on Guitar Rig and Reactor, so am unable to comment on these components. However, I have enjoyed the ride so far.
Excellent overview and insightful examples.
This is an interactive and thorough tutorial and the voice is as horelic's, awakening... For when the NI TNT and NI Reaktor?
