The Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 is the flagship model of Native Instruments MK2 Kontrol S-Series keyboards. While Both the S49 MK2 and S61 MK2 can be powered via USB, the Kontrol S88 MK2 needs its own separate power supply (included). The Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 can be used either for live performances on in the studio and can be used to control all your virtual instruments and effects that you need to use for your performances. It includes a copy of Komplete 12 select that features several different instrument sounds (listed below) that you can use.
The new KOMPLETE KONTROL S88 builds upon the acclaimed playability of its predecessor, adding more immersive visual feedback and deeper control for expanded creative possibilities. The fully-weighted, hammer-action Fatar keybed gives an authentic piano-feel, whilst the hi-res colour screens and Light Guide provide at-a-glance visual guidance. With pre-mapped control of all KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects and hundreds of NKS plug-ins, intuitive DAW integration, and full VST compatibility, the S88 is the ideal centrepiece for any studio or stage setup.
All S-Series keyboards now include KOMPLETE 12 SELECT and MASCHINE Essentials software.
With KOMPLETE KONTROL, music-making becomes a more intuitive, hands-on experience. Perform expressively, browse and preview sounds, tweak parameters, sketch your ideas, then navigate and mix your project - all from one fully integrated centrepiece for studio and stage.
