We’re pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Native Instruments to bring you regular stories on how to make the most of Kore and the Komplete family of instruments and effects (Reaktor, Kontakt, Massive, and more). Over the coming weeks, we’ll offer tutorials, interviews, tips, resources, and free downloadable projects and presets.
