Native Instruments have announced new sales special called 'A Smart Deal'. The offer provides a limited-time $100/100 €/£70 price reduction on three of NI's acclaimed smart keyboards, the Komplete Kontrol S-Series, the S25, S49, and S61. The recently released Komplete Kontrol S88 is not included. The sales special will run until January 4, 2016 at the NI Online Shop and at retailers worldwide.
Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards all use industry-leading Fatar keybeds in 25, 49, or 61 keys, each also featuring aftertouch. All keyboards also employ the same advanced smart control, Native Browser, that allows users to find all their sounds from one unified interface. Meanwhile, Native Map intelligently and automatically maps key software parameters to the eight display knobs on the keyboards. The Light Guide – an industry-first – gives producers instant visual feedback of their music, and also impresses the hell out of clients and collaborators. Also, Advanced Smart Play performance features such as scale mapping and chord sets combined with a powerful arpeggiator allow producers to play dynamic melodies and harmonies that always fit the key of their productions.
The recently released Komplete Kontrol 1.5 software opens the advanced control of Komplete Kontrol to third-party instrument developers thanks to NI's own Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) and advanced VST support. NKS is a new plug-in format that offers yet-unseen integration between hardware and software. VST support provides a deeper level of parameter auto-mapping than previously possible on non-NKS-ready software instruments.
The 'A Smart Deal' sales special runs until January 4, 2016 at the NI Online Shop and at retailers worldwide, while stocks last. During the special, the Komplete Kontrol S25 is available for $399/399€/£299, the Komplete Kontrol S49 is available for $499/499€/£369, and the Komplete Kontrol S61 is available for $599/599€/£429.
