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.

Great controller for NI software
Product Rating
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.

I absolutely love this Native Instruments S61 keyboard controller.
What is your opinion of this product?
I absolutely love this Native Instruments S61 keyboard controller. I've had it six months already. (Time flies when you're having this much fun.)It meshes right into my Maschine Studio controller and system DAW. I can get so much more playability with this than the pads alone. If I just want to compose with Komplete Kontrol stand alone, it is just the thing. I could not be happier with a keyboard controller and I've tried others. I have to mention how cool the lights are. If you compose or produce any genre of music, especially rock, hip hop or EDM, it is worth the investment and AMS made it so easy to acquire with their pay plan. Thank you AMS and Native Instruments.

Best Keyboard Control Ever!
What is your opinion of this product?
NI Komplete Kontrol S61 is the best keyboard control I have ever owned. I am able to control Logic Pro X in a flash with it. I don't have to use the computer keyboard to control most of Logic's functions. You can Mute, Solo, move from track to track, etc., etc. by using the buttons and knobs of the controller. Mixing your project directly from KK S61 is a breeze! I am able to create better music because, I am not wasting time jumping from Keyboard to computer keyboard to control my DAW. All the necessary controls to work on your project are in front of you. In my opinion, this has been the best investment I have ever made for my studio!
