Overview

With KOMPLETE KONTROL, music-making becomes a more intuitive, hands-on experience. Perform expressively, browse and preview sounds, tweak parameters, sketch your ideas, then navigate and mix your project – all from one fully integrated centerpiece for studio and stage. Now with the MK2 version of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series, you'll have even greater control over your music.

New in version 2 are dual high-resolution color screens for browsing, tweaking, mixing and more. The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series has also received a refreshing update to its knobs and controls, adding a more ergonomic look and feel, as well as a 4-directional push encoder for one-handed sound browsing and project navigation. You get the same deep integration with MASCHINE software and hardware, as well as pre-mapped control of KOMPLETE instruments and hundreds of Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) instruments from leading manufacturers.

Defining Standards
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.

Performance Features
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.

Creative Unity
Multiply your creative potential when you use MASCHINE and KOMPLETE together. Combine them and experience true creative unity – get unified browsing, automatic parameter mapping, and intelligent keys and pads with plug-and-play simplicity. All the power and sound of each platform in perfect sync at your fingertips with a hardware workflow you won’t find anywhere else.

    Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 MK2:

    The physical hardware is top notch. Everyone likes different things about different keybeds, but the action on this one feels about perfect to me. The displays are bright and legible.

    The Komplete Kontrol software is pretty good, but that and the controller editor show a couple of limitations:
    - The Controller Editor software doesn't recognize the MK2 yet (10/14/2017). So you cannot edit the CC maps just yet.
    - The unit doesn't yet work in MCU mode. This means that the unit will not provide transport control to anything other than the hosts with official support.
    - Komplete Kontrol does not allow any configuration of the Touch Strip, it is an absolute mode strip that outputs on the Expression CC. That's it.
    - Komplete Kontrol does not allow assignment of the buttons to the Synths under control

    No doubt all of these will be addressed soon, but they're probably worth knowing. Even if they were never addressed, I'd still be happy with my purchase.

      Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 MK2:

      I've been a long time NI user and currently using S88 and love it ! Waited for the 49MKII because of the new screen and editing features. Running K11 and have all software running without any issues with the S88 so I know this isn't a user issue. Purchased the 49MKII, right out of the box the unit fires up and goes dark, It will work as a controller but nothing lights up. Not an issue of being in midi controller mode or setting up an instance because you can't see any of the buttons etc... Retuned the first unit, and now the 2nd unit doing the same, thin one going back now as well ...

          Comments about Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 MK2:

          I already had a Maschine Mk2 before I bought this. I was really needing it for Strummed Acoustic 2 and some other virtual instruments that are difficult to use one the Maschine alone. I have found myself not using my Maschine nearly as much anymore for pretty much anything. If you are thinking of going with NI, I'd say just grab an S49 or an S61. Everything is functional right out of the box and it was easy to integrate into my workflow. I can't imagine working on any music without this keyboard now! Definitely a great buy for anybody who is producing.
