Native Instruments continues to develop on its keyboard controllers.
The Kontrol S mk2 has a lot of new features to offer, making it even more versatile.
An piece of innovative equipment that gives you full command of all your virtual instruments.
Native Instruments present a diverse system guaranteed to seduce composers, musicians, and producers of all musical genres.
If you’re familiar with the previous version of Komplete Kontrol, you’ll instantly notice the addition of two color screens at the center that reflects whether you’re using the keyboard with your DAW, Maschine or the KOMPLETE KONTROL software.
Now hang on to your seat because the main features will blow your mind.
We have tested the KOMPLETE KONTROL S61 and it is ridiculously easy to use.
With a redesigned and intuitive layout, more buttons now give you hands-on experience with the new powerful features.
The ergonomic Pitch and Modulation wheels enable you to add dynamic expressions to your notes.
Just below the wheels, there’s a flexible Touch Strip that gives you options to explore interesting modulation sounds.
Furthermore, there are buttons to quantize in case there’s a time issue with your recording and also add automation.
With the KOMPLETE KONTROL software as the main hub, you can browse thousands of sounds and presets faster.
And, get this: the screen gives you instant feedback plus a short preview of the sounds you’re browsing.
Using the new 4-dimensional push encoder, you can switch between tracks or scrub through your project’s timeline.
Apart from the normal controls for playback and recording, the unit comes with redo or undo buttons to correct any mistakes.
On top of that, you can tweak each tone via the Native Map software.
This means you can view what you’re editing at a glance through the high-resolution color display.
