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 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.

Great Hardware
Product Rating

Product Review

This keyboard makes workflow a lot easier and smoother. Yes, some may believe it's all about software, but this hardware by Native Instruments is a must. The keys are properly weighted, and you can audition the sounds without having to load them up. I've been a piano player for 12 plus years, and I would recommend to everyone.

Awesome keyboard and Wonderful Soft Synths

Product Review

For the past few years I have been heavily into softsynths and midi. I have been using an all soft synth and midi controllers rig for the last 3 years for live shows and church and it just keeps getting better. I have always heard about and have been interested in the native instruments software for some time now and I finally took the plunge and I’m so glad I did. The sounds are so authentic and you can tweak them to be whatever you want to. I am having a ball with this software Komokete Kontrol and the keyboard is so intuitive. I really only bought this for the software but since I had the keyboard......I’m in love with it as well

SUPERB & SLEEK!!

Product Review

I bought the S61 Black Limited Edition & am blown away by how beautiful, shiny but somewhat subtle the whole controller looks like. I love everything about it, and will save enough to upgrade to the whole 88 keys. I used to be an all AKAI controller, but after Native Instruments introduces this line of the model with the LCD screens, I had to get one. I love the fact that there’s so much to do with it, it’s own DAW, endless libraries & sounds etc. PRICELESS!!

Works Great with maschine

Product Review

Worked great with maschine and being able to utilize the chord mode was a little wierd to figure out . same goes to the arp mode . its really awsome with native isntruments plug ins but any other vsts i did not have any macro controls accessible . i had to set every control manually . all in all it plays grerat feels great but is not very user freindsly . and trying to use this with fl20 was giving me such a hard time . mashcines daw is pretty elementary and basic and limiting in my opinion and i feel lke this controller isnt very suitable for use in any other DAW .

The best midi controller on the market

Product Review

Paired with komplete 12, this controller makes sound selection much easier. I love using this to quickly get my ideas out from my head to the daw. The aesthetics on this controller are amazing as well. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to have a much easier workflow when selection and auditioning sounds.
