Description

Native Instruments' KOMPLETE KONTROL S-SERIES Controllers give you the power and ability to take full advantage of the world's most advanced software instruments. Made exclusively for use with KOMPLETE, it serves a world all its own...KOMPLETE-ly.

Utilizing well-designed software as powerful, intuitive and exciting as KOMPLETE for your musical creation, production, mixing, mastering and performance can become even easier when you use hardware that comes pre-configured to the software.

Integration between hardware and KOMPLETE has always been friendly and simpler than most, but there's nothing like having a dedicated controller made exclusively for KOMPLETE, a controller that "knows" where your software can take you and gives you specific tools to get there...right out of the box.

Access the dozens of KOMPLETE products and the thousands of sounds, instruments, effects, transport functions...in ways a universal controller could never do so easily and quickly, certainly not without hours of custom configuration or compatibility issues.

If you are or are becoming one of the growing thousands who have and love using KOMPLETE to make your music happen, then you definitely want to have KOMPLETE CONTROL.

KOMPLETE KONTROL???

By

About Me Experienced

Pros

    Cons

    • No Drum Pads
    • No Faders
    • Only 8 Rotary Controls

    Best Uses

    • To Control Ni Software

    Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

    Not nearly enough Kontrols to be called Komplete. Compare what other MIDI controllers give you for $200 - $300 less. Unless you are heavily invested in Native Instruments products, this is not the controller you are looking for.

        Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

        The Kontrol 61 is one of the greatest tools for producing music when using Komplete software. Since almost all aspects of the software are possible to manipulate through the keyboard it allows for drastically decreased production time and amazing productivity with detailed sound.

          Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

          The Kontrol S61 keyboard interfaces directly with NI Komplete instruments, making it easy to find the sound you want, and adjust parameters in real time. Komplete Kontrol S61 has a purpose-built browser section to navigate through NI's tag-based preset system. Advanced control options enhance your workflow and the dedicated transport section gives you full access to your DAW's playback and recording controls.

            Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

            The all new Komplete Kontrol Keyboards from Native Instruments are long overdue. Native Instruments clearly put a lot of thought into the development of these easy to use MIDI Controllers. They are the perfect keyboard complement to anyone owning Komplete 9 or Komplete 10, but they will also function with a number of other virtual instruments. This product comes highly recommended!

            ONE OF THE BEST

            By 

            from Lombard Il

            Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

            Great for desktop producers or a seasoned pro. Have total control over your whole studio session. Makes tracking EDM and HIP HOP a breeze. I instruct an EDM class every Saturday, and the Komplete Kontrol is used 90% of the time. This is a real hands on product review from Hodari@ Sam Ash Lombard

              Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

              NI's new midi controllers bring a new level of integration to their Komplete software system. The browsing features alone are well worth it; add in the Fatar keybed, the intelligent mapping, and visual feedback of all of the Komplete 10 instruments and you really have a nice system.

                With the success of maschine I am surprised it Native Instruments didn't come out with this controller sooner. Great features for Komplete 10 users. Improve and speed up your music production. I know I'm getting one as soon as they are back in stock! This is a real hands on product review from John @samash.com

                  Great feeling controller that makes using Komplete a breeze. With easy access to all transport funtions, and editing options of Komplete being right at your fingertips, this is the best controller for virtual instruments I have seen. Its built like a tank as well. I would highly recommend this for anyone who runs Komplete (9 and higher though!)

                  The Solution

                  Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 61-Key Controller:

                  The Problem: Your controller isn't pre-mapped to the very dynamic, very complex, but ultimately incredible sounding KOMPLETE sounds.

                  The Solution: The NI KOMPLETE KONTROL.

                  These are hyper lightweight, solidly built, and are already MIDI mapped to every possible sound in KOMPLETE.
