Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S49


I’ve just got my Native Instrument Komplete Kontrol S49 Midi-Keyboard. I’m by no means a “professional” musician (rather a beginner) but the Keys and Hardware feel great. The touch strips (be aware of the S61 Touchstrip problems) are a nice alternative to the classic pitch bend/modulation wheels.

Light Guide

The “Light Guide™” is great esp. when used with Battery or Kontakt.

I’m glad that i don’t have to use the Komplete Kontrol Software (I’m using Maschine 2), it’s currently unstable and buggy, Native Instruments is working on an updated version with fixes and some new features (and here it is: Link to forum Post)

I’m looking forward to have some fun with the “Light Guide™” and Reaktor
