Imagine you're creating a soundtrack for a film or writing a new song and you've exhausted your collection of loops and software instruments. There's an emotion you're trying to evoke and your tools just aren't cutting it. This is when the 24 instruments and effects in Native Instruments Komplete 7 save the day. In one shot you've got 90GB of sounds to create with, and it's compatible with both Mac and Windows computers.
When choosing a digital piano, as a basic rule I always lean toward companies that have a reputation for manufacturing great-sounding acoustic pianos.
