Pro-level playing feel
Whether you're laying down simple one-shots or composing an elaborate masterpiece, tactile control is at the heart of a keyboard's performance. The Kontrol S88 features professional-grade Fatar keybeds with aftertouch, which provide 88 fully weighted, hammer-action keys for you to explore. From absolute beginners to accomplished and experienced pros, everyone will be won over by the delightful response of these sumptuous keys.
Total expressive control
Not only have Native employed high-end hardware for the keyboard, they have also included ergonomically designed pitch and modulation wheels as well as a touch strip for expressive control. From real-time dynamic attenuation of samples and synths to mind-bending effects manipulation, the layout is such that when lightning strikes you can make rapid adjustments on-the-fly. For those who like to capture and records live performances with all bells and whistles, this is an absolute must.
The Kontrol S88 MK2 boasts two high-res colour screens for simplified browsing, tweaking, mixing, producing, etc. There are RGB lights above each key to highlight drum cells, key switches, chords, scales, key splits (both for NKS instruments and in MIDI mode). For those who favour instant visual feedback then Native have done them proud.

As well as offering pre-mapped control of KOMPLETE, the Kontrol S88 MK2 also play well with others. Whatever DAW you prefer to use, the S88 intuitively works between Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, GarageBand, Cubase, Nuendo and many more.
