1 review for Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2

  1. Brooklyn

    As someone who is passionate about music production, I was excited to get my hands on the Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2. With 49 keys, it’s the perfect size for playing melodies and triggering drums. The keys themselves feel great, with a satisfying amount of resistance and a nice springiness to them.

    When it comes to MIDI connections, there are plenty of options with this keyboard. It has USB and MIDI in/out ports, as well as two pedal inputs. This makes it easy to connect to your computer or other MIDI devices.

    While there are certainly some things to like about this keyboard, I can’t help feeling a bit underwhelmed. For one, the build quality could be better. While the keys feel nice, the overall construction feels a bit flimsy. There’s also the issue of price – this keyboard is definitely on the expensive side, especially compared to other MIDI keyboards on the market.

    That being said, the software integration with Native Instruments is top-notch. If you’re a user of their Komplete software, having this keyboard is a no-brainer. The included software is also impressive, with some great sounds and effects.

    Overall, I would give the Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 a rating of 3 stars out of 5. While it has its strengths, the high price and somewhat lacking build quality hold it back from being a truly standout MIDI keyboard.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I map a specific sound from my software synthesizer to a physical knob or fader on my Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2?

To map a specific sound from your software synthesizer to a physical knob or fader on your Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2, you'll need to follow these steps:

1. Launch Native Instruments' "Komplete Kontrol" software on your computer.
2. Select the desired sound from your library or create a new instance of your chosen synthesizer (e.g., Massive, Monark, etc.).
3. Connect your Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 to your computer via USB and power it up.
4. In the "Komplete Kontrol" software, navigate to the "Maps" tab at the top.
5. Click on the dropdown menu labeled "Select a Product" and choose your connected Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2 from the list.
6. Select the appropriate synthesizer plugin that corresponds with the sound you want to map in the "VST Instrument" section of the software.
7. Click on the "Learn" button located next to each knob or fader on your Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2, and then adjust a parameter in your chosen synthesizer plugin. The learn function will associate that specific control with the current parameter you're tweaking within the synth.
8. Repeat this process for each knob or fader you want to map, ensuring that you've selected the correct parameters in both the Komplete Kontrol software and your chosen synthesizer plugin.
9. Save your mapping by clicking on the "Save" button at the top of the "Maps" tab. You can choose a custom name for your saved preset or use the default option provided by Native Instruments.
10. Close the Komplete Kontrol software and return to your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) such as Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or FL Studio.
11. Load your chosen synthesizer plugin into your DAW and select the saved mapping you created earlier in the "Komplete Kontrol" software. You should now be able to control the parameters of your sound using the physical knobs and faders on your Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2.

By following these steps, you'll have successfully mapped a specific sound from your software synthesizer to a physical knob or fade on your Komplete Kontrol S49 MK2.
