When the Komplete Kontrol S61 comprehensive USB/MIDI keyboard came out, it had an extremely important feature that had never been seen before: LED lights above the keys that corresponded to a colour-coded system in the Kontakt software so you could keep track of where your key switches were at all times. Native Instruments have shows us that even a product this awesome can be improved with their new-and-improved Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 USB/MIDI keyboard!
The basic elements of a USB/MIDI keyboard in this class such as connections for a sustain and expression pedal, and USB MIDI and DIN MIDI functionality are all on board. This keyboard also has two large colour displays for your plugins. Using NKS protocol, you can be sure of a seamless integration of software and hardware. The keyboard has also been enhanced with a Fatar key bed!
The previous Komplete Kontrol features touch strips for pitch and modulation, but this MK2 has tried-and-trusted wheels and an extra touch strip! Additional controls give you access to transport buttons of the selected DAW software as well as scenes and patterns in MASCHINE. Another new feature the unique rotary knob on the right-hand side, which acts as a sort of stick and combines a push encoder with a cursor mechanism. The Komplete Kontrol MK2 has never been more complete!
