WELCOME TO KOMPLETE KONTROL
The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series combines smart, elegantly-designed keyboards with advanced control software to form a fully integrated centerpiece for studio and stage – matchless control over all your software instruments from one award-winning keyboard.
THE LATEST EVOLUTION – WHAT’S NEW
The KOMPLETE KONTROL software is constantly evolving, and the latest software update is the biggest yet. It introduces Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS) – a new plug-in format which unlocks KOMPLETE KONTROL so that third-party instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and more – with all instrument parameters intelligently mapped. VST support opens the gates to your entire software instrument library. And welcome KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 – a pro keyboard with fully weighted, hammer-action keys.
Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) is an extended plug-in format. Established by Native Instruments, this groundbreaking development offers an entirely new quality of software/hardware integration. Third-party developers can now configure their software instruments to access the unique hardware features of the KOMPLETE KONTROL system directly. Leading instrument builders such as Arturia, U-He, and Output Audio are already on board, and the list of NKS partners is growing rapidly. The result? True integration.
The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards augment and advance how you play and compose with a number of unique innovations.
Native Browser – Browse and load your entire library of KOMPLETE and VST instruments from a single, unified interface.
Native Map® technology automatically maps all key parameters for each KOMPLETE or NKS instrument to the touch-sensitive controller knobs.
Light Guide – The innovative LEDs above the keys mirror key switches and sound and sample types across the keyboard for all KOMPLETE and NKS instruments.
Smart Play lets you play chords with single keys or map the keyboard to musical scales, and create melodies at the touch of a button with the advanced arpeggiator.
KOMPLETE KONTROL 1.8:
KOMPLETE KONTROL 1.8 is a free update that brings powerful upgrades to Smart Play chord and scale features, along with improved transport control for clock-based instruments.
The Smart Play scale engine now includes more than 100 new scales and modes, making it easier than ever to take your melodies and harmonies in new directions.
NEW CHORD POSITION PARAMETER
Get full control over the position of individual notes in a chord. Set to Auto, KOMPLETE KONTROL automatically selects voicings for the most natural transitions between chords.
STAND-ALONE TRANSPORT CONTROL
When running in stand-alone mode, the KOMPLETE KONTROL transport controls can now be used to start, stop, restart, or adjust the tempo of clock-based instruments such as REAKTOR Blocks.
