MADE TO BE PLAYED
With the latest generation of KOMPLETE KONTROL, music-making becomes a more intuitive, hands-on experience. Perform expressively, browse and preview sounds, tweak parameters, sketch your ideas, then navigate and mix your project – all from one fully integrated centrepiece for studio and stage.
KOMPLETE KONTROL features industry-leading keybeds from Fatar – available with 49 or 61 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch.
HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOUR DISPLAYS
Whether browsing for sounds, tweaking parameters, or sketching ideas, these high-res colour displays keep you focused on creating, not your computer.
See sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more at a glance, with RGB lights above each key.
PITCH AND MOD CONTROLS
Ergonomic, rubberised pitch and mod wheels, plus assignable touch-sensitive smart strip for expanded creative possibilities.
EIGHT TOUCH-SENSITIVE KNOBS
Precision tweaking for all your sounds – pre-mapped to the most useful parameters of each KOMPLETE and Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) instrument.
4-DIRECTIONAL PUSH ENCODER
Browse sounds and navigate projects quickly and intuitively.
Get one-touch access to your Scenes, Patterns, and more in MASCHINE.
DAW TRANSPORT CONTROL
Get direct access to transport functions in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, and GarageBand. Cubase and Nuendo support coming late 2017.
Two high-res colour screens make it easy to browse and preview sounds, tweak controls, and mix and edit your projects – right from the hardware.
Get hands-on with your production process, thanks to an improved layout with more dedicated function buttons and a new four-directional push encoder.
KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 and S61 now sport ergonomic pitch and mod wheels, plus a touch strip for expanded creative possibilities.
Mix, edit, and more in MASCHINE, Logic, Ableton Live, and GarageBand. Advanced functionality for Cubase and Nuendo coming late 2017.
IMMERSIVE VISUAL FEEDBACK
See everything you need, when you need it, where you need it: Two high-res colour screens provide essential information on sounds and projects, backlit function buttons vary in colour and intensity to indicate their state, and the precision Light Guide pinpoints the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more.
FIND YOUR SOUNDS FASTER
Finding the right sound amongst a sprawling sound library can be difficult, not to mention time consuming. Now you can find exactly what you’re looking for across all KOMPLETE and Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) instruments using a simple, intuitive tagging system – directly from the hardware. What’s more, you can hear an instant preview of each sound as you browse.
Need a hip hop kit? Select Drums > Urban Drum Kit > Sample-based, scroll through the presets and pick the right one for your track. If you really like what you hear, just tag it as a Favourite for instant access next time.
PRE-MAPPED AND READY TO PLAY
All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best – the instrument designers themselves. All essential parameters load instantly and are displayed across the two colour displays, intuitively divided into pages. That means you can see exactly what you’re adjusting in real time – whether it’s in kHz, dB, or BPM.
Stay-on key, with notes of the currently selected scale or mode lit on the Light Guide. Activate chord mode to create a progression by playing single keys, then switch on the arpeggiator and turn it into an expressive musical performance. And for keyboard novices, Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you like, so you’ll never hit a wrong note.
PRECISION PITCH, MOD, AND EXPRESSION
Get precise control of pitch and mod functions via two ergonomic, rubberised wheels. And the ultra-sensitive touch strip provides a fun, responsive alternative to plugging in a dedicated expression pedal.
GET HANDS-ON WITH YOUR WORKFLOW
Capture all your ideas, directly from the keyboard itself: KOMPLETE KONTROL gives you immediate access to transport, mixing, and editing controls in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, and GarageBand, complete with visual feedback and volume metering on the keyboard’s built-in displays. And with MIDI in / out, incorporating outboard gear into your setup is just as simple.
Note: Advanced integration with Cubase and Nuendo will be available via a free update in late 2017.
INTEGRATION FOR ALL YOUR INSTRUMENTS
NKS means intuitive control over hundreds of instruments from leading manufacturers – including Heavyocity, Spitfire and Soniccouture. This extended plug-in format allows all developers to define the way their products integrate with NI hardware, so support for powerful features like tag-based browsing, Light Guide feedback, and pre-mapped controls now extends far beyond the KOMPLETE universe. And for VST instruments that haven’t yet been updated to NKS, it’s simple to create your own mappings from KOMPLETE KONTROL software.
