Native Instruments just launched two new keyboards: the Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 and the Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2. The keyboards come with a new look and layout that includes a pair of high-resolution screens for browsing patches, tweaking parameters, and mixing and editing your tracks.
The Komplete Kontrol MK2 line retains the Fatar keybed (the S49 has 49 keys, and the S61 has 61 keys) and keyboard Light Guide that has become synonymous with the Komplete Kontrol keyboard series.
We like the contemporary look of the Komplete Kontrol MK2 line, and the new screens are a welcome addition to an already solid production keyboard. Watch out for our review of it soon.
Check out the promo video below.
• The Komplete Kontrol MK2 series will be available for US$599 (Kontrol S49) and US$699 (Kontrol S61) from October 2017. Check the Native Instruments site for more details.
