    With Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL K49 Mk2, music-making becomes a more intuitive, hands-on experience. Perform expressively, browse and preview sounds, tweak parameters, sketch your ideas, then navigate and mix your project – all from one fully integrated centerpiece for studio and stage.

    Immersive Visual Feedback
    See everything you need, when you need it, where you need it: Two high-res colour screens provide essential information on sounds and projects, backlit function buttons vary in colour and intensity to indicate their state, and the precision Light Guide pinpoints the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more.

    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 an instant preview of each sound as you browse.

    Need a hip hop kit? Select Drums > Urban Drum Kit > Sample-based, scroll through the presets and pick the right one for your track. 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 are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best – the instrument designers themselves. All essential parameters load instantly and are displayed across the two colour 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.

    Pro Performance
    Stay-on 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.

    Precision Pitch, Mod, And Expression
    Get precise control of pitch and mod functions via two ergonomic, rubberised 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, 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.

    Note: Advanced integration with Cubase and Nuendo will be available via a free update in late 2017.

    Integration For All Your Instruments
    NKS means intuitive control over hundreds of instruments from leading manufacturers – including Heavyocity, Spitfire and Soniccouture. 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 VST instruments that haven't yet been updated to NKS, it's simple to create your own mappings from KOMPLETE KONTROL software.
