The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series combines smart, elegantly-designed keyboards with advanced control software to form a fully integrated centerpiece for studio and stage – matchless control over all your software instruments from one award-winning keyboard
THE LATEST EVOLUTION – WHAT’S NEW
The KOMPLETE KONTROL software is constantly evolving, and the latest software update is the biggest yet. It introduces Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS) – a new plug-in format which unlocks KOMPLETE KONTROL so that third-party instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and more – with all instrument parameters intelligently mapped. VST support opens the gates to your entire software instrument library. And welcome KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 – a pro keyboard with fully weighted, hammer-action keys.
Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) is an extended plug-in format. Established by Native Instruments, this groundbreaking development offers an entirely new quality of software/hardware integration. Third-party developers can now configure their software instruments to access the unique hardware features of the KOMPLETE KONTROL system directly. Leading instrument builders such as Arturia, U-He, and Output Audio are already on board, and the list of NKS partners is growing rapidly. The result? True integration.
ADVANCED MIDI CAPABILITIES
Record the output of KOMPLETE KONTROL’s Smart Play features directly into a DAW for further tweaking. Send MIDI to hardware synths and access software instruments and external gear from one controller – a great way to use the arpeggiator. Use the Controller Editor to adjust touch strip behavior, configure keyboard splits with Light Guide visual feedback, and create custom templates. You can even use the keyboard in standalone mode to control your favorite hardware – in the studio or on stage.
KOMPLETE KONTROL SOFTWARE
The software side of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series is KOMPLETE KONTROL – an advanced control interface for browsing your instrument library and customizing hardware mappings. The latest version introduces Native Kontrol Standard™ (NKS)* – a new plug-in format that allows all software instruments the same deep-level integration previously reserved for KOMPLETE Instruments. Most importantly, KOMPLETE KONTROL is evolving rapidly with every update, keeping the S-Series at the forefront of music technology, and constantly expanding your production capabilities.
The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards augment and advance how you play and compose with a number of unique innovations.
- Native Browser – Browse and load your entire library of KOMPLETE and VST instruments from a single, unified interface.
- Native Map® technology automatically maps all key parameters for each KOMPLETE or NKS instrument to the touch-sensitive controller knobs.
- Light Guide – The innovative LEDs above the keys mirror key switches and sound and sample types across the keyboard for all KOMPLETE and NKS instruments.
- Smart Play lets you play chords with single keys or map the keyboard to musical scales, and create melodies at the touch of a button with the advanced arpeggiator.
- MULTI-PURPOSE TOUCH STRIPS
Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They can mimic the behavior of pitch and mod wheels, and physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. Or create instant shifts with different stepped settings.
KOMPLETE KONTROL’s arpeggiator turns one note into a full musical performance. The eight controller knobs manage parameters such as direction, rate, rhythm, patterns, and variations. Best of all, the output of the arpeggiator can be recorded as individual MIDI notes for post-performance editing.
The integrated scale mapping features give you instant access to a world of melody. See notes of the currently selected scale lit on the Light Guide, and set virtually any musical scale to the white keys. It will even re-map ‘wrong’ notes so you’re always in tune.
Activate chord mode and create a rich harmonic performance by playing single keys. Map chords simply by selecting mode and inversion, or by loading up a chord set – ready-to-play progressions to inspire and augment your own compositions.
Multiply your creative potential when you use MASCHINE and KOMPLETE together. Combine them and experience true creative unity – get unified browsing, automatic parameter mapping, and intelligent keys and pads with plug-and-play simplicity. All the power and sound of each platform in perfect sync at your fingertips with a hardware workflow you won’t find anywhere else.
