At the core

A smart keyboard controller to bring virtual instruments to life.

Kontrol is an advanced MIDI keyboard controller available in three size options. Stay in the flow with an intuitive connection to instruments, effects, and your DAW, plus immersive navigation on a high-res screen. Choose from 49 or 61 semi-weighted keys, or 88 fully weighted hammer-action keys, all with polyphonic aftertouch as standard.

Virtual instruments meet the real world

Kontrol brings the world’s best virtual instruments to life in a genuinely immersive experience. Whatever you’re playing, get in-depth control thanks to an unparalleled direct connection to Kontakt. Find sounds quickly with intuitive on-screen navigation, then adjust and play them with intelligent auto-mapping that understands the parameters.

Introducing polyphonic aftertouch

Take expression one step further with the slightest pressure on individual keys. Bring new layers of nuance to your playing with cutoff, pitch, vibrato, and much more, without reaching for an extra encoder or dial.

All three models come complete with polyphonic aftertouch on an industry-leading keybed developed in collaboration with Fatar. Plus, the S88 is the world’s first widely available controller keyboard to combine polyphonic aftertouch with weighted, hammer-action keys.

Deeper into your DAW

Smooth integration with all major DAWs means you can keep your eyes on your keyboard and away from your computer screen. Hit record, stop, and rewind on the keys, mix and edit, and see all your project’s channels on the display.

Keys that fit you

Choose between 49 or 61 semi-weighted keys with the S49 and S61, or get a full piano feel with 88 hammer-action weighted keys on the S88.

Highly visual

See switches, key zones, scales, and more lit up in front of you with the intelligent Light Guide. Chord Mode lets you create a progression by playing single keys, while Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you need.
