Smart, Streamlined Keyboard Controller


Music-making is at its best when it's fast, fun, and physical. Find the right sound, make it your own, perform, and capture the results all from a responsive, semi-weighted keyboard. Complete with four premium instruments plus MASCHINE Essentials, A-Series keyboards come with everything you need to bring your ideas to life.

  • Intuitive pre-mapped control for hundreds of KOMPLETE and NKS plug-ins, plus full VST support

  • Perform on a custom NI keybed with 25, 49, or 61 semi-weighted keys

  • Includes MASCHINE ESSENTIALS, MONARK, THE GENTLEMAN, REAKTOR PRISM, SCARBEE MARK I, and more

  • Full integration with MASCHINE, Logic Pro X, and GarageBand - Ableton Live, Cubase, and Nuendo coming soon after release


FIND YOUR SOUNDS FASTER
With hundreds of presets to choose from, finding the right sound can be a chore. With KOMPLETE KONTROL, however, all of your KOMPLETE and NKS presets are intuitively tagged and organised, so finding the right one is fast and easy. What's more, you can hear a preview of each sound as you browse, without loading individual instruments.

PRE-MAPPED AND READY TO PLAY
All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments and effects are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best - the instrument designers themselves. Essential parameters like envelope controls and filter cutoffs are instantly displayed on the OLED display as you touch the corresponding knob. That means you can see exactly what you're adjusting in real time whether it's in kHz, dB, or BPM.

PERFORM CREATIVELY
With Smart Play, you never need to worry about hitting a wrong note - just pick a scale and play. Activate chord mode to create a rich 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.

CAPTURE YOUR IDEAS
No matter your setup, A-Series is designed to fit right into your existing workflow, with immediate access to transport, mixing, and editing controls in your favourite DAW. Logic Pro X and GarageBand are currently supported, with advanced integration for Ableton Live, Cubase, and Nuendo coming soon after launch. And if you're just getting started, the included MASCHINE Essentials allows you to capture and arrange your ideas direct from your hardware no additional software needed.

INSTRUMENTS INCLUDED
With more than 4,500 sounds and 9.7 GB of content included, A-Series keyboards come with everything you need to start making music. Register your hardware and get two powerful synths, two meticulously sampled pianos, and more. Plus with MASCHINE Essentials, you'll have all the tools you need to go from inspiration to finished track.

And when it's time to expand your collection, you'll be eligible for a discounted upgrade to KOMPLETE 12 SELECT, KOMPLETE 12, or the full MASCHINE library.

PRODUCE, PERFORM, PLAY OUT
Pair your A-Series keyboard with its compact beat making companion MASCHINE MIKRO (sold separately) for a fun, intuitive production setup: Tap out a groove on the MIKRO's RGB-backlit pads and layer on chords and melodies to ignite your idea. Once your tracks are wrapped up, it's time to kick off the party: TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 (sold separately) is a club-standard DJ controller that lets you take your mix anywhere.
