Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 MIDI Controller Keyboard


The wait is finally over! The highly anticipated new Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 MIDI Controller combines an improved pro-grade Fatar keybed with fully-weighted hammer-action keys, vivid visual feedback and tight integration for your entire workflow. Now you can 'Kontrol' your favorite DAW from the ultimate studio centerpiece!

    • Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 Product Features:


      A keyboard that feels better plays better. Express yourself on 88 fully weighted Fatar keys, each with an advanced hammer-action mechanism, Smart Spring technology, and memory-foam damping for a realistic piano feel.


      The S88 puts everything you need to know right in your line of sight: Get essential information on sounds and projects from two high-res color screens; see exactly what’s going on with backlit buttons that vary in color and intensity; and pinpoint the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more with Light Guide.


      NKS means intuitive control over hundreds of instruments and effects from leading manufacturers – including Heavyocity, Spitfire Audio and Waves. 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 plug-ins that haven’t yet been updated to NKS, it’s simple to create your own mappings from KOMPLETE KONTROL software.
