25-key MIDI controller with NKS technology, plus KOMPLETE 12.
This convenient Native Instruments bundle includes a KOMPLETE KONTROL S25 Keyboard Controller with KOMPLETE 12. KOMPLETE 12 raises the bar for production, performance and sound design in any genre. It contains more than 50 premium instruments and effects—including KONTAKT 6, TRK-01, and DISCOVERY SERIES: MIDDLE EAST—plus 10 Expansions.
The KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards represent the pinnacle of innovative hardware control and advanced software integration, forming one of the strongest symbiotic relationships in music development. These elegantly designed keyboard controllers are the perfect centerpiece for any studio or stage, and combine seamless control of the entire line of KOMPLETE software instruments and effects. And now with the introduction Native Kontrol Standard (NKS), that same level of hardware control is extended to third-party instruments as well.
Introducing Native Kontrol Standard (NKS)
KOMPLETE KONTROL continues its evolution with Native Kontrol Standard (NKS). NKS is Native Instruments' extended plug-in format that opens up the KOMPLETE KONTROL system. It allows VST and KONTAKT instrument developers to integrate their plug-ins with KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE at the same deep level as KOMPLETE Instruments. This means that even instruments not built by NI can be fully integrated in the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE browsers, with instrument parameters intelligently mapped straight out of the box. NKS instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and the full creative potential of KOMPLETE KONTROL.
Dig deep into thousands of sounds with ease, thanks to the unified browsing workflow of KOMPLETE KONTROL – limitless inspiration in a single plug-in. Search for sounds across all KOMPLETE Instruments using musical tags and keywords. Just press the Browse button, turn the push encoder to select your instrument, choose a sound, and go. The keyboard and all its features remain fully functional even when in Browse mode – never stop performing.
Automatic Parameter Mapping
Native Map technology guarantees you don't need to worry about mapping KOMPLETE Instrument parameters ever again. Each KOMPLETE Instrument was mapped in-house by Native Instruments' sound designers. All essential parameter names and values load instantly on the Clear View display, and are intuitively grouped into pages. The result: You see exactly what you're editing directly on the hardware, whether it's EQ in kHz or the exact frequency of a filter cutoff—without any setup time.
Use the Light Guide to identify drum cells, key switches, phrases, and more at a glance – play every KOMPLETE Instrument in full color. In scale mode, notes in the scale light up on the keyboard, with the root lit even brighter – perfect if you aren't a trained keyboard player. In chord or arpeggiator mode, all triggered notes light up when you press a key, so you always know exactly what’s happening.
Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They can mimic the behavior of pitch and mod wheels, and physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. Or create instant shifts with different stepped settings.
KOMPLETE KONTROL's arpeggiator turns one note into a full musical performance. The eight controller knobs manage parameters such as direction, rate, rhythm, patterns, and variations. Best of all, the output of the arpeggiator can be recorded as individual MIDI notes for post-performance editing.
The integrated scale mapping features give you instant access to a world of melody. See notes of the currently selected scale lit on the Light Guide, and set virtually any musical scale to the white keys. It will even re-map ‘wrong’ notes so you’re always in tune.
Activate chord mode and create a rich harmonic performance by playing single keys. Map chords simply by selecting mode and inversion, or by loading up a chord set – ready-to-play progressions to inspire and augment your own compositions.
Advanced MIDI Capabilities
Record the output of KOMPLETE KONTROL’s Smart Play features directly into a DAW for further tweaking. Send MIDI to hardware synths and access software instruments and external gear from one controller – a great way to use the arpeggiator. Use the Controller Editor to adjust touch strip behavior, configure keyboard splits with Light Guide visual feedback, and create custom templates. You can even use the keyboard in standalone mode to control your favorite hardware – in the studio or on stage.
