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!

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.
