Native Instruments have returned with a  new and improved version of their popular Kontrol Keyboard series. The unit features 49 semi-weighted keys on a pro-grade Fatar Keybed, Ergonomic pitch and mod wheels, plus an impressive touch strip for expression control.

The onboard display has been completely revamped, now featuring 2 high-res RGB screens, perfect for browsing, tweaking sounds and mixing. The precision Light Guide pinpoints the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more.

NI also bundle in their Komplete Select software which features 11 premium instruments (including Massive and Monark.) The S49 also allows you to utilise 3rd party VSTi's.

We recently held a Q&A with Native Instruments to discuss some of the new features and software integration.

What's the benefit of the new and improved screens?

Our new high-res RGB screens make browsing, tweaking and mixing so much easier. Another cool feature is that you can use the screens to view mix levels on your DAW.

Absolutely. The latest version of Maschine 2 software works with both Komplete Kontrol V1 and 2 series controllers. The MK2 versions offer up more hands on control of the software. 

How well do the keyboards work with other VST instruments?
Many software developers are creating NKS compatible plugins which means your Komplete Kontroller will integrate seamlessly. If they're not specifically designed NKS plugins, some features will usually map automatically anyway and by using the software, you can easily map the other parameters and save your progress for quick recall.  

What is NKS?
Our NKS plug in format allows software makers and developers to build plugins specifically for Maschine and Komplete Kontrol offering players and programmers insane control over their instruments. The beauty of this is that a lot of people want to use third party plugins but have been limited in terms of hands on control. That's becoming a thing of the past as we've opened up the platform. 

Does it come with any software?
Yes, you will receive a copy of Komplete Select - Downloadable via Native Access.
