    Greetings all.

    During Native Instruments' spring sale I splurged and picked up Komplete 8. Right now I'm loving Razor and Skanner XT amongst others, however, due to the sheer volume of instruments (specifically Kontakt) I'm running into a bit of problem in that I'm not sure as to what instruments to invest my time into.

    That said, can anyone recommend any decent Kontakt (or Reaktor for that matter) instruments or point me in the direction of some of their "go-tos?" It doesn't matter whether they're included in the pack or if you purchased them. I'm really just looking to save time rather than going through and demoing every instrument. Of course if that's what it takes I'll bite the bullet.

    Cheers.

    Dragon is sick too, Pendulum used it on some of their earlier tunes.
