Komplete Elements OR... Virtual Instrument Plugins

Komplete Elements OR...

Not sure I am ready to invest in Komplete 8 and was thinking to try the above. I have no experience with softsynths. Is this software a good idea? What else should I look at? Or just bite the bullet and buy Komplete 8?
I am using Reaper and Studio One Pro DAW.

Elements is a great way to get going and test the waters so to speak. It has a little bit of everything, more then enough to get started. I actually get most of what I need out of it, I would like to get the full blown package but haven't been able to justify it yet. The only downside I see is there is no upgrade path from elements to the full version so if you do end up getting the bigger package you are out the elements purchase price. I still think it's worth it though so you can take a as long as you want test drive before dropping the big cash.

Komplete Audio 6 comes with Elements....not sure if its a good deal otherwise given there is no upgrade path and if you look around there are tons of free softsynths and Vsts

You could probably do better these days by going ala carte, but if you want a bunch of stuff in one go it's hard to go wrong with NI's bundles. My suggestion would be to pick up one of the older versions of Komplete for a song, and spend the rest of the money on whiskey

Buy somebody's old komplete 7 off f eBay and you'll pretty much have komplete 8... The investment would be worth the reward
