Komplete product for popular 80's synth sounds...?
Anyone know of any Komplete compatible software that offers popular 80's synth sounds...?
Like the synth leads from "Jump" from Van Halen
"Axel F" from Harold Faltermeyer
Head Over Heels" from Tears for Fears, etc..
well this is not an NI Product, but...
discoDSP - OB-Xd - OBERHEIM INSPIRED VIRTUAL ANALOG SYNTHESIZER - AAX / VST / VST / AU / IOS1
Don't really know if will fit what you are looking for, but I will suggest you to give a try to Podolski and Zebralette, both by u-He.
Podolski is NKS-Compatible and integrates in Komplete Kontrol, but note that Zebralette is a slimmed version of Zebra, and will appear as Zebra2 in the Library section of Komplete Kontrol Software.
Zebra2 will show you a warning to activate it when running the plugin, but you will be able to load the slimmed version if you open it through the menu in the little arrow next to search button, close to the Komplete Kontrol logo in the software, as shown in the following picture.
It won't be NKS tagged but will work.
Also, note that this method works with a lot of third party plugins.
You can also give a try to TyrellN6, which has a Roland Juno like sound, and also Triple Cheese, which are both free.
I'll let you the links to all four plugins below.
To conclude, I will suggest you to also take a look to Analog Lab, by Arturia, which is part of their V Collection, a collection of classic synthesizers and keyboards.
In short words, Analog Lab works as a player and preset manager to the V Collection. Note that it is not NKS-Compatible, but it will work with the method I'd suggested before.
Also, note that Analog Lab has a slimmed version called Analog Lab Intro, which you can grab for free as a benefit of creating an account at SoundBetter, links below.
By getting Analog Lab Intro you will have an upgrade discount to the full Analog Lab and then to the full V Collection, which is NKS-Compatible. Take a look at the following links too.
Hope this helps you.

Seems strange that such iconic synth riffs don't have easily available software/VST in 2022...0
Is there a way to sample synths into the NI interfaces, etc...
Maschine connected to a Komplete Kontrol keyboard...?0
And you could make exact clones of those 80's synth riffs I outlined about with these...? :)0
The next update of Maschine will include the following:
The new Auto-Sampler provides a fast and efficient method of sampling an external device such as a synthesizer or drum machine, which is compatible with all 4x4 MASCHINE controllers.1
If you want "Exact" Then you would need to get the Original Oberheim OB-x, and dial in the "exact" parameters used by the original artist.
Check out the discoDSP OB-Xd I linked to. Thats about as close as you will get to the original hardware in virtual form.2
FM8 can also bring you a lot of that 80’s sound flavor, and if you like to dig into reaktor, the user library is also full of nice recreations of iconic synth such as JuNo, Nordrack and many monosynth . It is not the same route though learning sound synthesis can help you recreate anything on many different tools also. Poly synth in maschine is also great !1
Update of Maschine - meaning software update or new hardware update to MK4...?0
Ha ha... when I said "exact" I put it in quotes :)
You hear a lot of covers on YouTube where it really sounds nothing like the original.
And I will check out that link - thanks!0
Are there any sound designers on the forum that will make specific sounds for you for a fee...?0
Software Update, info here
Coming up next for MASCHINE and MASCHINE+ — Native Instruments Community (native-instruments.com)1
The auto sampler is huge (as in a great addition).0
