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.

Sold all my synths to get this
What is your opinion of this product?
After being primarily a Korg and Kurzweil player, I sold my KRONOS, my prologue, and PC2x to finally arrive at a solution that fits perfectly. I felt a bit concerned that I wasn't even plugging in the audio outputs of the Korg gear anymore, and just using them as controllers for software synths. Meet the inevitable. I am now playing the S61 MkII, and soon to be an S88 MkII as well. Because so much attention to detail was built into the keybeds, and being that KORG doesn't build aftertouch into most everything they make, this felt like a natural decision to make. There is just enough going on with knobs and the slider to be useful, but NKS is really where the energy was put into. It is a marvel to be on the board navigating through sounds, instead of loading plug-ins and managing inserts on the computer. Add in transport controls and a mixer and I'm a happy guy. Running it primarily in Logic Pro X. If you've been looking for a quality controller, this is it.

Excellent Upgrade from the MK 1
What is your opinion of this product?
I had the first one of these too, and this is even better. Now has 2 colour screens so integrates perfectly with my Maschine MK 3 & Maschine Jam. Use this as the center piece of my studio and it's fantastic.

Beautiful, Well-Made, But Do Your Research
What is your opinion of this product?
It is a beautiful, well-made keyboard with a quality keybed feel, and tight integration with Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol, but not the best choice as a standard master controller for reasons I would suggest researching prior to purchase. Use is a bit convoluted, especially compared to other USB controllers which are plug, play, and go in various apps. Interfacing through Komplete Kontrol makes the process more convoluted and less of a flow than I would prefer, especially if one works with multiple apps. For the stated purpose of working with Komplete Kontrol it does its job just as one would expect. I am not an expert on this product by any means, however, so there may be options to improve the experience which I have not yet explored.

Great controller for NI software
What is your opinion of this product?
USB powered and the screen are what sold me on this keyboard. Really works well as far as getting to a sound you're looking for within the different NI plugins. Integrates well with Cubase. Can't speak to other DAWs.
