Default virtual instrument plug-ins for pro tools 8

What is the best virtual instrument plug-in package for pro tools. I am not looking to buy a lot of separate ones but the best comprehensive pack.

The two that I have seen are
Native Instruments Komplete 7
Digidesign Instrument Expansion Pack

Opinions?

Thanks

There is no best; the 2 that u hav pointed out already are very good & usable in a great way.. Its all about what u want; any1 that tells u "the best is ___________," is tellin u what they want or hav...

Komplete 7!!!!!
Massive is MASSIVE
Kontakt is the most versatile and best support Sampler with 3rd party content
whatever you want to do with samples, Kontakt will do.
REAKTOR, any form of Synthesis you can think of - or can´t imagine yet.
Absynth well anything with waveforms.
etc etc.
and it´s much more stable now than AVID products.


ProTools VI has essentially lost the race. Imported Patches from Kontakt, EXS are soso.
Hybrid is boring.
Structure is a deasater with barely any original content.
Strike is even worse content wise. Though the interface is really nice. NO other import formats are supported and no user samples can be imported!
Transfuser is unique if it works.
and Velvet has been outdated by other NI Kontakt packages,
though it´s still quite nice.

I have PT VI and some NI products, Kontakt, Reaktor etc. but not Komplete. I never touch the PT VIs anymore, safe Transfuser.

Komplete is well made, it will have more patches than you can use in 10 years.

I continue to use NI 75% and PT instruments 25%. Do not get me wrong, the Didgidesign Instruments are very well made, I just seem to grab the NI stuff more.
