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 Favourite for instant access next time.
Pre-mapped and ready to play
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.
