WHAT'S NEW?

MORE VISUAL

Two high-res color screens make it easy to browse and preview sounds, tweak controls, and mix and edit your projects – right from the hardware.

MORE INTUITIVE

Get hands-on with your production process, thanks to an improved layout with more dedicated function buttons and a new four-directional push encoder.

MORE EXPRESSIVE

KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 now sports ergonomic pitch and mod wheels, plus a touch strip for expanded creative possibilities.

MORE INTEGRATED

Mix, edit, and more in MASCHINE, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo, and GarageBand.

REFINED PIANO FEEL

A keyboard that feels better plays better. Express yourself on 88 fully weighted Fatar keys, each with an advanced hammer-action mechanism, Smart Spring technology, and memory-foam damping for a realistic piano feel.

SEE WHAT YOU NEED, WHERE YOU NEED IT

The S88 puts everything you need to know right in your line of sight: Get essential information on sounds and projects from two high-res color screens; see exactly what’s going on with backlit buttons that vary in color and intensity; and pinpoint the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more with Light Guide.

FIND YOUR SOUNDS FASTER

Finding the right sound amongst a sprawling sound library can be difficult, not to mention time consuming. Now you can find exactly what you’re looking for across all KOMPLETE and Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) instruments using a simple, intuitive tagging system – directly from the hardware. What’s more, you can hear a preview of each sound as you browse, without loading the instrument.

 

Your soundtrack needs epic strings? Select Bowed Strings > String Ensemble > Sample-based, scroll through the presets and pick the best fit. And if you really like what you hear, just tag it as a favorite for instant access next time.

PRE-MAPPED AND READY TO PLAY

All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments and effects are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best – the instrument designers themselves. Essential parameters like envelope controls and filter cutoffs load instantly and are displayed across the two color displays, intuitively divided into pages. That means you can see exactly what you’re adjusting in real time – whether it’s in kHz, dB, or BPM.

SMART PLAY FEATURES

Stay in key, with notes of the currently selected scale or mode lit on the Light Guide. Activate chord mode to create a progression by playing single keys, then switch on the arpeggiator and turn it into an expressive musical performance. And for keyboard novices, Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you like, so you’ll never hit a wrong note.

PITCH, MOD, AND MORE

Get precise control of pitch and mod functions via two ergonomic, rubberized wheels. And the ultra-sensitive touch strip provides a fun, responsive alternative to plugging in a dedicated expression pedal.

GET HANDS-ON WITH YOUR WORKFLOW

Capture all your ideas, directly from the keyboard itself: KOMPLETE KONTROL gives you immediate access to transport, mixing, and editing controls in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo, and GarageBand, complete with visual feedback and volume metering on the keyboard’s built-in displays. And with MIDI in / out, incorporating outboard gear into your setup is just as simple.

INTEGRATION FOR ALL YOUR INSTRUMENTS AND EFFECTS

NKS means intuitive control over hundreds of instruments and effects from leading manufacturers – including Heavyocity, Spitfire Audio and Waves. This extended plug-in format allows all developers to define the way their products integrate with NI hardware, so support for powerful features like tag-based browsing, Light Guide feedback, and pre-mapped controls now extends far beyond the KOMPLETE universe. And for plug-ins that haven’t yet been updated to NKS, it’s simple to create your own mappings from KOMPLETE KONTROL software.
