I have had the Komplete Kontrol S61 mk2 for over a year now and I think it’s time we do a deep dive and see how it’s been holding up. In the video we talk about the various aspects of the Kontrol S61 which makes it one of the top midi controllers.

Is the Komplete Kontrol S61 for you?
It really depends on the features you need and how closely you are working with Native Instruments software. Particularly NKS compatible software. If you are working anything with NKS plugins or Kontakt libraries I can highly recommend you to try out the Komplete Kontrol keyboards. Kontrol has a VERY tight integration with instant access to important software parameters via the knobs.
Bundled with Komplete Select 12
The Komplete Kontrol S61 comes packed with Komplete Select 12 which is a package with all the sounds you ever need. You get some of Native Instruments most popular synths like Massive and Monark. I’m a piano player so I was very intrigued that the package comes with the critically acclaimed The Gentleman piano.
I have most of the other piano vsts on the market but this one really caught my attention. You can get so much variated sounds from The Gentleman. I highly recommend it!
I’ve produced countless tracks with the Komplete Kontrol S61 mk2 during this past year and some you can hear on my Spotify channel.
Komplete Kontrol M32
PS. Native Instruments also released the M32 keyboard, which is a portable version of this keyboard. It doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles, but it’s a neat affordable solution for the artist on the go.
