I've been playing with this for the last 24 hours and wanted to share my initial impressions. First - there are 12 DVDs, it takes a while to install this! Second - once you install, you'll get notifications of all of the updates available to your software, sample library, manuals, etc. NI provides a pretty slick interface to keep all of your products up to date and working. I had well over 20 updates, so the total installation time was quite long.
Once I started digging into the music, I was truly blown away. This might be the most musically inspiring gear purchase I've ever made. There are so many wonderful options for composition, arranging, and sound design. From very human samples to incredible synths, to mind blowing sonic manipulation - this package has a little of everything. Integrating it with pro tools was ridiculously simple.
NI has paid attention to a lot of little details, such as putting in a simple recorder in Guitar Rig so that you can record and save little ideas instantly without having to create a session. They've also gone out of their way to make orchestration arrangements simple by setting up intelligent arppegiation , interval, and chord generation. The included drum grooves are great and the tweakability factor with the drums is just fantastic. Without reading any manuals I've been able to already dig into to the basic tools, as its fairly intuitive, and I can tell that if you spend a little time really learning all the features that the horsepower from this bundle is simply an amazing value. Definitely one of the best "bang for the buck" purchases that I have made in years.
