    So does this mean that MCU should work with KK and S1? I am looking to purchase KK to go along with my Maschine and this is what I have been looking for.

    I no longer have S1 installed, but if it uses MCU, then yes. It's a firmware patch direct to the keyboard itself. You'll just need to set the -DAW instance of the KK as MCU in S1.

    I'm sure someone with S1 will be able to help. Maybe ask on Reddit. Although give it a few days, as the update only came out a few hours (from time of posting).

    I know if I use the rotary dial on my S61 Mk2 in FL Studio I can change the channel...

    I can also scrub the timeline.

    It's all context sensitive depending on your focus.

    It's pretty cool actually.

    Give it a try on yours!

    Thanks so swap channels works but it does not switch into control mode for the kk plugin loaded on the channel I select - I have to do it additionally like before. And turning the knob does nothing in cubase. But I think they gonna enhance it in a future update. Tomorrow I will try again systematically and not in a rush like today.

    Unfortunately it doesn't select the instance on FL Studio either. There needs to be some kind of scripting for that to happen, as it does on Ableton (and Bitwig, which has the ability to create your own scripts)...

    I agree, it's something that NI can implement. The instance of KK that's selected should automatically notify the Keyboard that it's been selected and is focus.

    But it's nice to see that NI are actually getting around to these updates. I was super shocked that they provided us with MCU support. As after such a long time, you kind of write it off as "not happening anytime soon".

    I was gobsmacked when I got the the email... MCU support... Whooah.

    Next up, the enhanced song mode in Maschine. Honestly, if they can add that feature to Mashine, I'd be super stoked...

    And it only took over one year and 27 pages of frustrated users in the forum!!! I'm astonished what big proaudio software companies can allow themselves and are not punished by the market... ridiculous!

    Im afraid, i dont understand how this works now. The manual concerning the integration in f.e. ableton live, wasnt updated, yes?

    Was there a firmware update? My s88 mk2 didnt do any.

    Chosing the Kontrol S MK2 in the Midi settings of ableton, i still cannot control live with the hardware buttons on the S88MK2. Actually it plays midi signal then.

    Did i miss something? THanks.

    I don't understand how it should work either, I was trying with Studio One but if I select "Komplete Kontrol" I only get usual MIDI signals from keys, if I set "Komplete Kontrol DAW" I get input only from transport controls but as MIDI notes (?)

    Anyway, there wasn't any firmware update, just Komplete Kontrol application update (to version 2.1.3)

    You create a mackie midi device in settings and use kk daw as midi in and out. The other kk midi device you use as input for the instrument track you are working on and wich can host kk vst. In cubase you have an auto select feature that routes that midi automatically to the selected track and I guess in s1 there is something similar.

    Hey, guys. Long time. I kind of gave up on this. I was glad when the message came through that Transport Controls would work, again. But, after setting up Komplete Kontrol - DAW as a Mackie device in Studio One, it still doesn't work for me. Has anyone successfully done this?

    Not yet, but I need to get this done so I will start it and update this post later.

    Edit: Doesn't work for me either. Even when the the device for the keyboard is working to input midi, the transport controls don't work from the keyboard, but works from the host.

    I'm also not able to get it working on Mixcraft 8. It will start and stop from the DAW, but not from the hardware. MC8 does support MCU.
