Native Instruments S61 overview

  • 1Description

The KOMPLETE KONTROL S61 from Native Instruments is a 61-key USB MIDI controller for Mac and Windows that can be used to control all of your software- and hardware- based MIDI instruments, and features expanded integration with KOMPLETE 9, KOMPLETE 10, and KOMPLETE 11, such as automatic parameter mapping.

When used with KOMPLETE 9, 10, or 11, the KOMPLETE KONTROL software allows for unified browsing from a single plug-in. It allows you to search sounds across all KOMPLETE instruments by simply pressing the controller's Browse button, and turning the push encoder to select your instrument and sound. Sounds can also be searched using musical tags and keywords.

The KOMPLETE KONTROL S61 also features a plethora of other useful features such as the Light Guide, which allows you to identify drum cells, key switches, phrases, scales and chords by way of multicolored lights that shine on the keys. It also features two assignable touch strips, arpeggiator, integrated scale mapping, single key chords, and more.

The KOMPLETE 11 SELECT software comes included, with eleven premium instruments and effects such as MASSIVE, MONARK, THE GENTLEMAN, and more.

Advanced MIDI Capabilities
The KOMPLETE KONTROL S61 also features extensive MIDI control for third-party instruments with the included Controller Editor software. Adjust touch strip behavior, configure keyboard splits with Light Guide visual feedback, and create custom templates. When you use KOMPLETE Instruments and third-party instruments together in a session, KOMPLETE KONTROL automatically switches between MIDI mode and KOMPLETE KONTROL software when you select a track for uninterrupted workflow

    Native Instruments S61 reviews

    KOMPLETE KONTROL S61 61-Key Controller for KOMPLETE is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent keyboard for NI Komplete Well integrated with NI Komplete. So nice to have the mappings to the specific VIs. Turns Komplete in to a completely accessible package. Easy to navigate from the S61, browsing and opening sounds. I'm finding synths and sounds that I didn't even know were in Komplete. Excellent keyboard feel. It will work fine as a midi controller, but is not the optimal choice if you aren't using NI Komplete.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeding expectations, which were high to begin with First - keep in mind that this controller, while not exclusive, is for KOMPLETE. If you do not run KOMPLETE then there may well be preferred controllers for you - but if you are a KOMPLETE user then look no further - this is a must have rig. The integration with the massive library that is KOMPLETE is fantastic. Besides the integration - The controller is solid, well built, great action and seems made to last. I am loving it.
