Fully-Weighted 88-Note FATAR Keys
The FATAR keybed on the KKS 88 MK2 is one of the most responsive available in a MIDI Keyboard of this size. It delivers real-feel Grand Piano response when a traditional synth-action just isn't enough.
RGB Light Guide
Courtesy of the revolutionary RGB Light Guide above each of the 88 keys, you can now work out scales, chord progressions and melodies in the right key, without a deep knowledge of music theory. By dialing in one of many included Chromatic, Western, Eastern and World scales, you've instantly got all the right notes at your fingertips. A revolutionary way to learn, write and produce music for any level of player.
S88 MK2 features two high-res colour screens for browsing, tweaking, mixing and more. Everything including presets, genres, categories and instruments are all displayed for easy browsing and selection. Spend less time on the mouse and monitor. Spend more time fully engrossed in finding the right sounds and playing!
