88-key MIDI keyboard controller with polyphonic aftertouch.

The KONTROL S88 MK3 is an 88-key MIDI keyboard controller designed to unlock your creativity. With 88 weighted hammer-action keys and polyphonic aftertouch, you'll have intuitive control over parameters in compatible virtual instruments.

Polyphonic Aftertouch Provides Nuanced Expression

Take your playing to the next level with polyphonic aftertouch. Apply pressure to individual keys after the initial strike to modulate effects like cutoff, pitch and vibrato. The weighted hammer-action keys provide an authentic grand piano feel, allowing for maximum expression and dynamics.
