More Visual

More Intuitive
Get hands-on with your production process, thanks to an improved layout with more dedicated function buttons and a new four-directional push encoder.

More Expressive
KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 now sport ergonomic pitch and mod wheels, plus a touch strip for expanded creative possibilities.

More Integration
Mix, edit, and more in MASCHINE, Logic, Ableton Live, and GarageBand. Advanced functionality for Cubase and Nuendo coming later.

Immersive Visual Feedback
See everything you need, when you need it, where you need it: Two high-res color screens provide essential information on sounds and projects, backlit function buttons vary in color 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 Favorite 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 color 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.

Pro Performance
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, rubberized 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.

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.

11 Instruments and Effects Included
Register your KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware to download KOMPLETE 12 SELECT for free – the essential collection of instruments and effects, including MASSIVE, MONARK, and THE GENTLEMAN. The package features more than 2,500 sounds and over 25 GB of instruments and effects, giving you the perfect palette of sounds for any genre.

And when you’re ready to expand your collection, you’ll be eligible for a discounted upgrade to KOMPLETE 12 or KOMPLETE 12 ULTIMATE.

Essential for composing in the Native Instruments ecosystem

Product Review

This is actually my second S49 MK2. The first one failed after about 2 years — not great, but I am committed to the Native Instruments ecosystem, so getting another one was essential.

This thing is a beast!

Product Review

Whether you're a novice or a stone cold pro with the keys, this thing is excellent. Especially when paired with the Maschine software! The scale and chord modes make laying down perfect orchestration a breeze and the fact that NKS is widely used makes finding suitable patches and tweaking them quickly ridiculously easy. Additionally tutorials are readily available through Native Instruments website and YouTube so picking up the intricacies isn't a stretch for anyone.

Excellent keyboard! Full of features and easy to use!

Product Review

I love the Komplete Kontrol S49 MKII keyboard! It is full of features and easy to use. I’ve tried many midi keyboards before this one and none of them have been easier to use than this one! It makes learning scales and learning how to play easier! The first time I used it I was able to make a decent beat! I still have alot to learn but I recommend this keyboard to everyone!!

Better Than Expected

Product Review

I use this keyboard every single day. I think I'll never need another again lol. The scale and chord features come in handy. I find myself lost in time because I spend everyday with this thing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone beginner or advanced.

Great Music Production investment

Product Review

Getting familiar with their software, but the workflow feels seemless once you get the hang of it. Excited to be able to have an idea in my head, and put it on “paper” immediately.

Excellent Product

Product Review

First off, shopping was awesome, fast and package came in one piece. Second, this midi controller is an awesome addition to my work surface. It’s plug in and play is a plus. Biggest thing I enjoy is it’s auto mapping to my DAW.
