This week sees Native Instruments release the latest update to the Komplete Kontrol platform - now version 1.8.0.
The Komplete Kontrol 1.8 Update includes significant enhancements to Smart Play’s Scale & Chord engine, and a stand-alone Transport for integration with clock-based instruments. All current owners of the Komplete Kontrol keyboards or software can download the new update through the NI Service Centre Update feature.
Smart Play Scale & Chord
The Smart Play Scale engine now includes over one-hundred Scales to quickly and easily take melodies and harmonies in new directions, and an improved arpeggiator.
The Smart Play Chord Position parameter extends creative possibilities with full control over the position of individual notes in a chord. When set to Auto, KOMPLETE KONTROL automatically calculates the most natural transitions between chords, all in real time.
KOMPLETE KONTROL stand-alone’s Transport provides support for clock-based instruments such as REAKTOR Blocks.
Logic ProX, GarageBand, Cubase and Nuendo integration now include easy configuration, rock-solid reliability, speed and enhanced control.
Browse from the Hardware
Hardware Browsing lets you find your Native Instruments and NKS-ready products without having to look at a computer screen. Another great feature within the Komplete Kontrol 1.8 update.
KOMPLETE KONTROL includes text-to-speech support for Perform features, Browsing parameters, tags and instance selection as well as a training mode for locating controls directly on KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards for visually-impaired users on both macOS and Windows.
