INTRODUCING NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD - (NKS)

Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) is an extended plug-in that Native Instruments have developed which is used to open up the Komplete Kontrol system.  NKS allows compatibility not only with NI software plug-ins but also with third party VST’s opening up a whole new creative journey for the end user.  In addition, the instrument limitations are mapped from the moment you connect to your computer, enabling you to plug and play directly from the box.  The Smart Play features, Light Guide and the full creative possibility can all be accessed directly from NKS instruments.

Producing NKS has now made it possible to combine the S-Series keyboards with third-party plug-ins thus creating opportunities that have not been possible before.

Within the Native Browser the NKS instruments display next to the Komplete instruments so you do not need to look elsewhere.  The instruments from third-parties are tagged by the manufacturers themselves so that they can ensure that they are both useful and current.

Third-party plug-in manufactures are now able to use Native Map which means that they are able to design mappings to suit the instrument exclusively.  As a result when NKS is loaded the instruments are automatically mapped to the eight control knobs.

The Light Guide, industry leading tool, can now also be used by third-party instruments to display keyboard splits, key switches and sample mappings.

Each NKS plug-in has been set up to allow the use of Smart Play features within the Komplete Kontrol software including Chord sets, touch strips, arpeggiator and the scale mapping.

Due to the development of the NKS plug-in leading industry software specialists are updating their existing products to enable the integration with NKS.  The manufactures that have confirmed so far are:

  • Arturia
  • U-He
  • Output Audio
  • Soundiron
  • Heavyocity
  • Spitfire
  • ProjectSAM
  • Softube
  • XILS Lab
  • e-Instruments
  • Sonokinetic
  • Evolution Series

Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S-88 MIDI Keyboard Features

THE KOMPLETE INSTRUMENT

 

MULTI-PURPOSE TOUCH STRIPS

MULTI-PURPOSE TOUCH STRIPS

Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They can mimic the behavior 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

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.

UNIFIED BROWSING

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.

                  

SCALES

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

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.

AUTOMATIC PARAMETER MAPPING 

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 

Guide

Use the Light Guide™ to identify drum cells, key switches, phrases, and more at a glance – play every KOMPLETE Instrument in full color. 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.
