49 note MIDI controller designed for Komplete
Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol MK2, an evolution in the Komplete hardware keyboard controller series, loaded with a brand new display, improved plug in browser and improved pitch and mod wheels.
For owners of Komplete, the Kontrol series is a serious no brainer. An incredibly well spec'd and well built MIDI controller keyboard, in it's own right, but it's super tight integration with the Native Instruments software library via the Komplete Kontrol application, is where it comes into life.
The Komplete Kontrol app allows you to seamlessly browse through your entire NI and NKS compatible sound libraries, without ever having to touch the keyboard or mouse, it's like having all of your NI sounds built into a real synth...it's really that seamless and nice to use.
Other cool features that set the Komplete Kontrol series apart from the pack is the innovative key lighting system, which allows the user to highlight (with actual lights above the keys) any keys into a scale and also provides note quantization should the player play a note outside of the selected scale, great for making melodies and composing on the fly or on the go...and those of us who are less that skilled on the old ivories.
Contained in the same section as the scale mode is the chord and arpeggiator, as the names suggest, you have a very well featured chord mode which allows you to assign a wide array of chord to a single key at one time, great again for those who don't know their chops, or wan tto put something down quickly. The arp also provides a wide array of playmodes, latching options and also tracks the selected scale mode.
The MKII brings some serious refinements to an already exceptional MIDI controller.
