HOW TO GET STARTED WITH KOMPLETE 11
Native Access is a small cloud-based application that handles downloads, installation, and updates for Native Instruments software – including KOMPLETE. It’s the easiest way to get all your music creation tools ready for use, so you can spend more time making music and less time managing products.
STEP 1: CONNECT HARD DRIVE OR FLASH DRIVE
Your KOMPLETE box includes either a hard drive (KOMPLETE 11, KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE) or a flash drive (KOMPLETE 11 SELECT). Connect this to your computer using the USB cable provided.
STEP 2: INSTALL AND RUN NATIVE ACCESS
The Native Access app is on your hard drive/flash drive. Install it and start the application. If you already have Native Access, just start the application.
- You’ll be asked to log in with your NI account. If you don't have one, you can create one within the app.
- Please pay particular attention to the 'Installation Preferences' – see below for details.
- You can also download Native Access here.
STEP 3: ENTER SERIAL NUMBER
Enter your serial number as shown – it’s on the postcard in your product box.
STEP 4: FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS
Let Native Access take it from here. You can install your KOMPLETE Instruments and effects as required – no need to install everything at once. Native Access will make sure you get the latest updates and any additional downloads.
Important: When you run Native Access for the first time, you’ll be asked to select target folders for your download, installation, and content-locations. Native Access will install all product content, such as sample libraries, into this target folder. Sample content in particular takes up a lot of space, so you may want to install everything to a dedicated hard drive.
Important: On Windows computers, you need to point Native Access to your preferred VST plug-in folder. Once selected, all Native Instruments VST plug-ins will be installed into this folder.
