  • 4-directional push encoder for one-handed sound browsing and project navigation

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.

I am extremely satisfied with this additon to my arsenal! + Amazing Customer Service!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This controller is a perfect compliment to my Maschine MK3, as well as to logic, Reason and cubase! I love the feel of the keys, and have two large screens is great from navigating the software without needing to look at the monitor. But I can't do this review without praising the customer service team at AMS (all 1000 of you??). My original open-box purchase had an issue with one of the keys...since I live overseas, the return process through an APO address can create its own challenges. They were amazing at helping me get my package shipped, refunded for the shipping expense, and had my new keyboard to me with 2 weeks (great turnaround for a box that big). Thank you all for a great customer service experience!

A Beautiful Piece
What is your opinion of this product?
Ordered the Komplete keyboard with the software package. My son is re-tracking many of the instruments on his almost complete second album! The quality of the keyboard touch is far superior to our previous keyboard - now in the trash! the nuances of the instruments, crescendoing and de-crescendoing of notes has a profoundly positive impact on the tracks and songs!! And would not be possible without the AMS finance program!

An amazing tool for music production and scoring
What is your opinion of this product?
The Komplete Kontrol is a workhorse. I usually start ideas in Native Instruments Maschine software, so I expected the Kontrol to work seamlessly there along with my Maschine Studio. It does. The majority of my production work has me scouring and scrolling through multiple tracks in Logic Pro X and Pro Tools 12. Kontrol's smooth, tactile functionality in its transport section, main and 8 rotary selection knobs have been clutch during longer sessions. Over time, I’ve found myself using the controls and dual screens for quick edits and tweaking instead of looking at the computer screen and reaching for the mouse every time to access basic functions in my DAWs. I enjoy playing keys on the S61. They have just the right amount of weight and give, without fully committing to a fully weighted profile like its big brother the S88. The key lights have also been crucial. The visual cues have helped with my productivity. While the touch sensitive strip has been useful, the physical pitch bend and mod wheels are what I needed and are awesome (thank you for bringing them back Native)! In short, my Komplete Kontrol MK2 S61 has been and continues to be my go-to keyboard and sits at the center of my workspace.

A Workhorse
What is your opinion of this product?
Initially the setup wasn't great or very intuitive, but after I figured it all out and got the S61 setup with Ableton it blew me away. The Komplete Kontrol S61 or any is so easy to use with the quick browsing for instruments and sounds with the sound preview is amazing. I can easy find sounds, tune them up with the oscillators and such, and with the added chord, arp, and key features finding the right sounds for a track is easy peasy. There is so much more to explore in this keyboard it definitely is not a one trick pony. I only wish it had come with the full Komplete 12 and not just the select. Don't get me wrong the Komplete Select package and the free stuff Native supplies you with is absolutely amazing and will most definitely get you started, but after several months you start craving more sounds. I will defintely be upgrading to the full Komplete 12 in the future. If you are using Ableton and pair the S61 with a Push 2, your workflow and productivity will be turned up to 11.

Best controller I've ever had!
What is your opinion of this product?
Komplete Kontrol, and its accompanying software are a pleasure to use! Browsing and loading sounds is so simple, as is adjusting parameters! Being totally blind, the extensive accessibility features are amazing, and I look forward to more great things to come from Native! The keys feel great as well, 61 semi-weighted with aftertouch. To compare, it feels like the old Roland and Yamaha actions everyone liked from the DX7 and D50 eras. Seriously, I can't say enough about this controller!
