The MK2 Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 has been given more than just a brand new facelift. S49 MK2 asserts its title of 'King of the MIDI Keyboards' with brand new Hi-Res colour screens to browse your favourite plugin presets, hands-on rotary controllers, Pro-Grade Fatar Keybed and deep integration with MASCHINE hardware and software.
If you're new to the world of Komplete Kontrol, or already an existing user - the MK2 will take your music production to the next level. It's more visual, more intuitive, more expressive than any other Keyboard Controller on the market today and is a valuable asset to any producers setup.
Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 delivers the most seamless music making experience with any DAW. Courtesy of the included Komplete Kontrol software, all of your favourite plug-ins (not just Native Instruments!) are easily accessible from one library screen. Browse your presets by genre, instrument, timbre or type, all from the keyboard's control surface. No longer is there a disconnect between the keyboard and the computer - it's all right in front of you with Kontrol S49 MK2.
It also features built-in Arpeggiator sequences and a dedicated 'Chord' Mode, allowing you to instantly dial in hundreds of different scales and key modes from all genres of music. Along with the LED light guide above each key, it allows you to play and learn complex chord progressions without years of music theory or training and record straight into your DAW. A massive time saver and creative spark when you need it!
