The new KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 adds an 88-key professional-grade, fully-weighted, hammer action keyboard to the S-SERIES family.

All-new Native Standard Kontrol (NKS) opens the KOMPLETE KONTROL system to all software instrument developers and establishes a new standard in software/hardware integration. Advanced VST integration adds intelligent parameter mapping to plug-ins out of the box. Now, the entire spectrum of software instruments can come to life under your fingertips in an entirely new way – more intuitive, expressive and inspirational than ever before.

Includes KOMPLETE SELECT – a premium collection of 10 instruments and effects worth $1,000 when purchased separately, featuring professional, production-ready sounds for all styles of music!

NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD AND VST SUPPORT
Browse and load VST plug-ins straight from the keyboard, with instrument parameters auto-mapped to the control knobs, and full access to all Smart Play features. Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) is Native Instruments’ new, easy-to-use, extendable instrument format that represents a major leap forward for deep plug-in integration.

It allows KONTAKT and VST instrument developers to integrate their plug-ins with KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE hardware and software at the same deep level as KOMPLETE Instruments. This means third-party software instruments get full parameter mapping, and can take advantage of exclusive KOMPLETE KONTROL technology such as Light Guide.

Features:
  • Pro-grade Fatar keybed with supreme aftertouch with fully weighted hammer-action
  • Tag-based browsing across KOMPLETE and NKS Instruments directly from the hardware
  • Main KOMPLETE and NKS Instrument parameters pre-map to touch-sensitive controller knobs via Native Map
  • Multi-color Light Guide reveals advanced features of KOMPLETE and NKS Instruments and provides performance feedback
  • Expressive, highly flexible touch strip controls with advanced physics
  • Clear View display shows all the most important details at a glance
  • Create arpeggiated melodies at the touch of a button, play chords with single keys or map the whole key range to scales
  • Full support for VST instrument loading within the KOMPLETE KONTROL environment, including preset attribute tagging and custom parameter mappings
  • Full access to the host transport control without stepping out of your creative workflow
  • Includes KOMPLETE SELECT – a premium selection of 10 instruments and effects
