    INTRODUCING NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD™
    KOMPLETE KONTROL continues its evolution with Native Kontrol Standard (NKS™). NKS is Native Instruments' extended plug-in format that opens up the KOMPLETE KONTROL system.
    It allows VST and KONTAKT instrument developers to integrate their plug-ins with KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE at the same deep level as KOMPLETE Instruments. This means that even instruments not built by NI can be fully integrated in the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE browsers, with instrument parameters intelligently mapped straight out of the box. NKS instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and the full creative potential of KOMPLETE KONTROL. And what's more, the NKS version of an instrument will be a free update for existing owners.
    Native Browser
    Third-party instruments are tagged by the manufacturers themselves, ensuring that these tags are relevant and useful. NKS instruments show up alongside your KOMPLETE Instruments in the Native Browser – total browsing unification.
    Native Map®
    Native Map is also extended to third-party instruments. This means that plug-in manufacturers can design mappings that suit the instrument specifically. And that you get useful, musically-relevant parameters mapped to the eight control knobs automatically when you load an NKS instrument.
    Light Guide
    Light Guide revolutionised playability when it appeared on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. Now, third-party instruments can use this industry-first technology to easily display key switches, sample mappings, and keyboard splits.
    Smart Play
    Every NKS plug-in is set up to make use of the creatively-empowering Smart Play features in the KOMPLETE KONTROL software – including the touch strips, scale mapping, Chord Sets, and the powerful arpeggiator.
    Unified Browsing
    Dig deep into thousands of sounds with ease, thanks to the unified browsing workflow of Komplete Kontrol – limitless inspiration in a single plug-in. Search for sounds across all Komplete Instruments using musical tags and keywords. Just press the Browse button, turn the push encoder to select your instrument, choose a sound, and go. The keyboard and all its features remain fully functional even when in Browse mode – never stop performing.
    Automatic Parameter Mapping
    Native Map™ technology guarantees you don't need to worry about mapping Komplete Instrument parameters ever again. Each Komplete Instrument was mapped in-house by Native Instruments' sound designers. All essential parameter names and values load instantly on the Clear View display, and are intuitively grouped into pages. The result: You see exactly what you're editing directly on the hardware, whether it's EQ in kHz or the exact frequency of a filter cutoff – without any setup time.
    Expert Guidance
    Use the Light Guide™ to identify drum cells, key switches, phrases, and more at a glance – play every Komplete Instrument in full colour. In scale mode, notes in the scale light up on the keyboard, with the root lit even brighter – perfect if you aren't a trained keyboard player. In chord or arpeggiator mode, all triggered notes light up when you press a key, so you always know exactly what's happening.
    Multi-Purpose Touch Strips
    Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They can mimic the behaviour of pitch and mod wheels, and physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. Or create instant shifts with different stepped settings.
    Arpeggiator
    Use Komplete Kontrol's arpeggiator to turn one note into a full musical performance – directly from the hardware and independent of the instrument. The eight controller knobs manage parameters such as direction, rate, rhythm, patterns, and variations.
    Scales
    The integrated scale mapping features give you instant access to a world of melody. See notes of the currently selected scale lit on the Light Guide™, and set virtually any musical scale to the white keys. It will even re-map 'wrong' notes so you're always in tune.
    Chords
    Activate chord mode and create a rich harmonic performance by playing single keys. Map chords simply by selecting mode and inversion, or by loading up a chord set – ready-to-play progressions to inspire and augment your own compositions.
    Advanced MIDI Capabilities
    The Komplete Kontrol S49 also features extensive MIDI control for third-party instruments with the included Controller Editor software. Adjust touch strip behaviour, 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 S49 automatically switches between MIDI mode and Komplete Kontrol software when you select a track – uninterrupted workflow.
    Built For Komplete
    The Komplete Kontrol S49 keyboard was designed and built for Komplete 10 and Komplete 10 Ultimate – the most powerful tools available for production, sound design, and film, TV, and game scoring. This keyboard is also compatible with Komplete 9 and Komplete 9 Ultimate.
