NKS or "Native Kontrol Standard" as the abbreviation refers to, is a system that Native Instruments committed to a couple of years back, It involves integrating a 3rd party's software into NI hardware to offer a fast and efficient way of seamlessly integrating your favourite plugs in to the NI workflow. So far it's been smaller software companies like Output, Rob Papen and Arturia (not so small) and many more, who have jumped on board, but to have a software giant like Waves getting in on the act is a BIG deal!.
All the Waves virtual instruments have been NKS ready since 2017, but let's face it, Waves are famous for their audio effects and to have over 63 of them available in the NKS format is the exciting part of this news.
Here's what Waves had to say:
NKS-ready plugins and instruments load with their key parameters pre-mapped across the control knobs on KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE hardware. We have worked closely with Native Instruments to ensure that the most important plugin parameters are always at your fingertips, for maximum speed and creative control.
NKS-ready plugins and instruments appear with their presets in the powerful tag-based browsers of the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE software. You can search presets by plugin, vendor, type and keywords. You can hear instant sound previews of each preset as you browse, making it faster than ever before to find the perfect sound.
So there you have it, if you are a Waves customer all you need do is update via "Waves Central" and all your NKS ready plugs will be updated accordingly.
