  • Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 Keyboard Controller

    The KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 Keyboard Controller from Native Instruments features an 88-key, fully weighted, hammer-action USB MIDI controller for Mac and Windows computers. It can be used as an integrated music production and performance system to control all of your software and hardware based MIDI instruments. In addition, it features expanded integration with Native Instruments Komplete software, as well as any instrument supporting the Native Kontrol Standard (NKS).

    KOMPLETE KONTROL and each area of its software interface correspond directly to the hardware sections of your S88 controller. Adjusting instrument parameters from the knobs on your keyboard also adjusts the corresponding controls in the software. You can see software controls move in real-time whenever you turn your hardware knobs, swipe the touch strips, or switch button states on and off.

    The browser and navigate section is your interface for finding, loading, and organizing your instruments and files. The S-Series keyboard allows for instant access to your library by using hardware controls and the large, clear on-screen overlay. Furthermore, the Perform Panel and Perform Section (Smart Play) provides functions for generating and playing scales, chords, and arpeggios, using instruments from the library and other MIDI-controlled instruments as sound sources.

    The KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 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, an arpeggiator, integrated scale mapping, single key chords, and more.
