Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 Keyboard


2 IN STOCK

The S49 MK2 from Native Instruments, is the second generation of Komplete Kontrol MIDI keyboards featuring a newly designed layout with 2 x new Vivid high-resolution screens. The new screens are key to unleashing quicker access to more features on the MK2 models. Such features include, audio preview of preset patches, and deeper visual integration with your DAW, NI software and Machine. NI have replaced the touch-strip style Mod & Pitch wheels, with more traditional wheels for a more hands-on feel.

      MADE TO BE PLAYED
      With the latest generation of 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.

      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 and S61 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.
