TRUE PIANO FEEL

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 and effects using a simple, intuitive tagging system – directly from the hardware. What’s more, you can hear an instant preview of each instrument preset as you browse.

Your soundtrack needs epic strings? Select Bowed Strings > String Ensemble > Sample-based, scroll through the presets and pick the best fit. And 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 and effects have been 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 Clear View Display, 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.

PITCH, MOD, AND MORE

Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They behave like standard pitch and mod wheels, or mimic physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. And by using different stepped settings, glitchy-sounding instant shifts become possible.

PRO PERFORMANCE

Enhance your performance with a world of melody and harmony: Stay-on key, with notes of the currently selected scale or mode lit on the Light Guide, or activate chord mode and create a rich progression by playing single keys. Then switch on the built-in arpeggiator, and turn those single notes into an expressive musical performance. And if you’re new to the keys, Easy Mode maps all the white keys to whichever scale you like, so you’ll never hit a wrong note.

GET INSTANT VISUAL FEEDBACK

See everything you need, when you need it, where you need it: The Clear View Display shows your instruments’ most important parameters right on the hardware, while the precision Light Guide pinpoints the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more.

INTEGRATION FOR ALL YOUR INSTRUMENTS AND EFFECTS

NKS means intuitive control over hundreds of instruments and effects from leading manufacturers – including Heavyocity, Spitfire 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.
