Komplete Kontrol A49 Video

The Smart Play function is one of the standout features of this MIDI keyboard controller and is excellent for helping people sharpen their music theory skills. The Komplete Kontrol A-Series features over 100 scales and modes, everything from major/minor, harmonic maj/min to Japanese. Play whole chord progressions with single notes, be guided on how to create the perfect melody by selecting a mode and key, and Komplete Kontrol will suggest notes in that key.

The A-Series serves as a fantastic entry point into the Native Instrument brand, offering incredible functionality while filling a gap in the market for MIDI keyboards under the £200 price tag. In addition, the semi-weighted custom NI keybed allows for astonishing playability while giving the user decent comfort. Traditional piano and keyboard players can add digital sustain pedals thanks to the TRS input. You can also change the pedals functionality from sustain to expression, thus mimicking professional standard players to an even greater standard.

The Komplete Kontrol software gives you in-depth control over your plugins and effects. Even 3rd party providers, such as waves, spitfire audio, orange tree samples, etc. These manufacturers use the NKS-standard which means their ranges are able to integrate with NI hardware such as the A-Series, S-Series, and Maschine controllers, so you can use impressive features such as the aforementioned smart play functions.
