KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 combines the best-feeling hammer-action keybed around with vivid visual feedback and tight integration for your entire workflow: Browse and preview all your presets from KOMPLETE and hundreds of NKS plug-ins, sculpt your sound, and control your favourite DAW from the ultimate studio centerpiece.

  • 88-key hammer-action Fatar keybed with true piano feel

  • Intuitive integration with all your virtual instruments and effects

  • Two high-res colour screens and Light Guide for at-a-glance visual feedback

  • Comes with KOMPLETE 12 SELECT: 14 premium instruments and effects, including THE GENTLEMAN, MASSIVE, and MONARK

Express yourself on 88 fully weighted Fatar keys, each with an advanced hammer-action mechanism, Smart Spring technology, and memory-foam damping for a realistic piano feel.

The S88 puts everything you need to know right in your line of sight: Get essential information on sounds and projects from two high-res colour screens; see exactly what's going on with backlit buttons that vary in colour and intensity; and pinpoint the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more with Light Guide.

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 a preview of each sound as you browse, without loading the instrument.

All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments and effects are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware. Essential parameters like envelope controls and filter cutoffs 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.

It plays like a piano, controls Native Instruments through the keyboard as easy as you can on a computer screen, seamlessly integrates into Cubase and Ableton to control the transport and mixer without any set up in the DAW. Great product!

Best keyboard I've ever played on! The keybed is so much nicer feeling than the other s series models. If you use a lot of Kontakt libraries, this is the best thing you can do for yourself. Your production workflow will increase tenfold. This thing is worth every penny, and I can see myself using it forever.

Purchased this to replace an aging Korg t1 master keyboard controller .. Purchased the s88 and when the black Friday sale it upgraded to komplet collectors edition .. Keyboard is well built , integrated with Ableton 10 Suite, logic pro x, and presonus studio one .. Collectors edition is very large ...960 gig .. had to add additional 2Tb ssd storage to my computer ..did not anticipate that .. anyhow solution runs flawless.. just make sure you have lots of computer memory!

This product is outstanding!!!! Worth every penny. Well built and works seamlessly. Definitely a good investment if you want a quality midi keyboard with fast workflow capabilities. Only thing I wish it had more rotary encoders that could be custom assigned to plugin parameters so the big empty surface space would be used on it. But this is irrelevant, the mapping abilities are amazing!!!! You hook it up to your DAW and thats all it takes...ready to rock!!!!! Thanx LMQ!!!!!!!!
