Komplete Kontrol S-Series

Native Instruments recently revealed it’s latest hardware controller, the Komplete Kontrol S-Series. From what I see, this controller is aimed towards life performing, turning their flagship Komplete Bundle into a monster on stage instruments. The convinient of browsing  sounds from the entire Komplete instruments without having to go through each different software is a major thing for live performer on stage. It literally put the massive 12k + sounds of complete at their finger tips. With this controller you basically have almost any sound imaginable for live situation. There is also cool scale mode that will help the less trained musician to gained confidence to actually play live. Is it cheating? Maybe. But, that’s just the way technology is.

Is this essential? Not really. But it’s definitely usefull. And if you’re in the market for MIDI controller and the Komplete bundle then this is a no brainer. The controller it self is priced at $499 and compatible with Komplete 9 (some feature will not be available )and 10. It will be out and available on October 1st. There are different bundling prices for upgrade. For more information head to Native Instruments.
