SEE WHAT YOU NEED, WHERE YOU NEED IT
The S88 puts everything you need to know right in your line of sight: Get essential information on sounds and projects from two high-res color screens; see exactly what’s going on with backlit buttons that vary in color and intensity; and pinpoint the location of sounds, key zones, switches, scales, and more with Light Guide.
FIND YOUR SOUNDS FASTER
Finding the right sound amongst a sprawling sound library can be difficult, not to mention time consuming. Now you can find exactly what you’re looking for across all KOMPLETE and Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) instruments using a simple, intuitive tagging system – directly from the hardware. What’s more, you can hear a preview of each sound as you browse, without loading the instrument.
Your soundtrack needs epic strings? Select Bowed Strings > String Ensemble > Sample-based, scroll through the presets and pick the best fit. And if you really like what you hear, just tag it as a favorite for instant access next time.
PRE-MAPPED AND READY TO PLAY
All of your KOMPLETE and NKS instruments and effects are pre-mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL hardware by the people who know them best – the instrument designers themselves. Essential parameters like envelope controls and filter cutoffs load instantly and are displayed across the two color displays, intuitively divided into pages. That means you can see exactly what you’re adjusting in real time – whether it’s in kHz, dB, or BPM.
SMART PLAY FEATURES
Stay in key, with notes of the currently selected scale or mode lit on the Light Guide. Activate chord mode to create a progression by playing single keys, then switch on the arpeggiator and turn it into an expressive musical performance. And for keyboard novices, Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you like, so you’ll never hit a wrong note.
PITCH, MOD, AND MORE
Get precise control of pitch and mod functions via two ergonomic, rubberized wheels. And the ultra-sensitive touch strip provides a fun, responsive alternative to plugging in a dedicated expression pedal.
GET HANDS-ON WITH YOUR WORKFLOW
Capture all your ideas, directly from the keyboard itself: KOMPLETE KONTROL gives you immediate access to transport, mixing, and editing controls in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo, and GarageBand, complete with visual feedback and volume metering on the keyboard’s built-in displays. And with MIDI in / out, incorporating outboard gear into your setup is just as simple.
