Yes, I use only a few items of Komplete 9, but the thing about collections like that isn't to use everything, but to have instruments and tools at disposal when you do need it. IMHO you need to decide what to focus on within the collection.
I resisted getting Waves Gold and instead focused on Waves Renaissance Bass, Renaissance Channel, the classic C1 Compressor and L1. I wanted the C6 multiband compressor as well, but that dreadful offline Waves installer prevented me from trying out anything after I installed Waves Gold demo, so I didn't dare risk it. The pathetic VISE-installer just refused to install Renaissance or single plug-ins. I was surprised I could install anything. It shall be interesting to see how Waves will handle this.
I've been trying T-racks for a while, but I decided I don't like the sounds I'm getting with my sources. That's one reason for just getting some Waves stuff that I most certainly will use, in the tracks I work on now at least. That Scheps 73 EQ on my Tremor snare was wonderful news. Mmmmm.
