More Visual
Two high-res color screens make it easy to browse and preview sounds, tweak controls, and mix and edit your projects – right from the hardware.

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 late 2017.

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 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.

11 Instruments and Effects Included
Register your KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware to download KOMPLETE 11 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 11 or KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE.

Taking Keyboards to the Next Level
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Yes, it needs a USB connection to your computer running the NI software. Now that we're past that, this is a miracle keyboard. Quality. Function. Capability. It has it all. And the marriage to the Komplete software is... well, amazing. I'll be playing with this thing for years before I discover all it has to offer. The graphic interface makes finding what you need so easy. I could go on and on, but I don't want to sound like an advertisement for Native Instruments. I'm just a very happy customer that finds this particular device my ideal keyboard instrument.

Amazing DAW integration and playability!
What is your opinion of this product?
Setup of all the software and hardware was a breeze on my Mac. The integration with Logic Pro X is amazing. I love that I can do lots of things without using the mouse or keyboard. It has improved my workflow greatly. The ability to preview sounds is great for picking sides merging that’ll work in any composition. American Musical was great with fast shipping and hassle free checkout!

Not cheap but you do get what you pay for.
What is your opinion of this product?
First, it's built like a tank. Good heft to it and everything you touch feels like quality. The functionality does everything it's supposed to do and does it well. There could be some additions to the physical keyboard, but that's true of anything if you go looking to quibble. Overall I think you really do get what you pay for with the S49.

Worth every penny
What is your opinion of this product?
Such a great addition to my workflow...if you are in with the NI stuff, this really ties it all together in one controller..prehearing presets has been an unexpected surprise in terms of value and getting deeper into the library that I did before having to click through. Worth the money

Game Changer right here.
What is your opinion of this product?
I'd been using an M-Audio keyboard forever. I felt great and wouldn't die so why bother replacing it? Then I started reading about about the features of the Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 Mk2. It almost sounded too good to be true. After extensive research I finally pulled the trigger. Man this thing is great! It feels good, and because of the way it talks to Komplete Ultimate 11, I can fly through sounds to find the right one quickly. You can make adjustments and fine tune sounds right from the keyboard, access menus that were once only on the computer and you can even select your project key so you never hit a bit note. I waited a long time to upgrade and the Mk2 was definitely worth the wait.
