    Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S25 25-Key Controller:

    This powerful little 25 key controller is perfect if you have Komplete. It is pre mapped for all the main functions using Komplete software but can also be used with any other software with minimal mapping. The entire keybed is touch sensitive for a more expressive sound. One of the greatest features is the multi light keys that instantly tell you what feature is being used at a glance. Lastly there are 2 touch strips that are assignable for things like pitch and modulation on the fly as well to help with your creative expression. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Music, Cleveland.

      The Kontrol 25 is amazing when used in tandem with the Komplete software. Making adjustments on the fly without the need to dig through settings on a computer is great and allows for an easier way to find a truly unique, fine-tuned sound for performance or recording application.

          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.

            Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S25 25-Key Controller:

            This is the perfect piece of hardware for someone who uses Komplete 9 or 10 and wants to make their lives easier. Being able to browse your sounds, change settings, and even map the keyboard to chords and patterns really unlocks the potential for Komplete. And if you are on the move a lot, the portability of this 25 key controller makes it possible to take that level of control everywhere you go. No matter how you use Komplete, this controller will make the creative process go a lot smoother.

              Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S25 25-Key Controller:

              Far from a typical MIDI keyboard, this unique controller interfaces directly with your NI Komplete instruments, making it easy to find the sound you want and adjust parameters in real time. The S25 features a Fatar keybed to play chords or scales, and even control your DAW right from the transport section. I am a product reviewer for Sam Ash Music in Dallas.

                  Comments about Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S25 25-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.

                    This thing is really cool. If you're using Kontact already, you really need it. It works a lot better than just any old MIDI controller with Kontact. Really intuative.

                      Great new controller from NI. Nice and portable, durable and well built. The keys player in my band bought one of these when they came out. He uses it to run synth bass lines.

                      I would recommend to a friend.
