That should be fun, I’ve got Komplete Ultimate, it took 8 hours to install on my i Mac, a lot of it I didn’t use, so I was very selective when I had to reinstall it later.

Don't NI sell the full monty version on an SSD, like Spitfire Audio do with their large orchestral libraries? I always thought it best to keep sample libraries off your main program drive?

Yes, there is a boxed version that comes on a drive (but not an SSD I don't think).

"Boxed version includes HDD drive, USB cable and USB-C adapter."

So long as it's a 7200rpm HD drive, then it'll still be useful.

It’s big, but the key thing is there’s no point installing all of it. Select what you want to use and it’s a lot easier to manage. You might not need Gamelan, or compressors, or whatnot.

You have to click on ‘buy’ and it shows you on that page. Ultimate collector’s edition is 1150 GB, the next one down is 800 GB.

It's all on the Specifications page I linked to above, which is one of the pages off the main marketing page.
