Here is a peek into one of the coolest Keyboard innovations since the accordion went electric!
Native Instruments has just released the Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards, the jewel of the Kontrol series crown. The S-series brings light to your production with multicolor key displays to map out scales, chords, patterns, or anything else you tell it to. It’s designed to work with KOMPLETE 9 or higher, but also functions as a standard MIDI controller.
Major features include:
Automatic parameter mapping (Custom parameter/FX knob assignments with LED displays and levels)
Light automation (for drum cells, scales, chords, arpeggios, key switches, phrases etc.)
Assignable touch-strips (In place of Pitch-bend and Mod wheel)
Advanced MIDI interface (for using KOMPLETE in tandem with third-party MIDI interfaces)
Before you pick up your jaw from the floor, remember that with any Native Instrument product, you get what you pay for. The S-Series 25-key retails for $499.99, which is a metric ass-ton compared to other controllers of its kind (there are no controllers of its kind). Between the keyboard and software, you’re looking to drop a solid grand before you can get started. Meant for the collectors and connoisseurs, the S-series brings in a new twist on top-tier production at a price we can live with.
