Native Instruments celebrates its 25th birthday with a sale on its portable NKS MIDI keyboard Komplete Kontrol M32, on sale for 89€ for a limited time.
MIDI controllers give hands-on control over VST plugins. The MIDI mapping of the parameters can be cumbersome and time-consuming. With NKS, Native Instruments has a standard with matching keyboards in their portfolio where parameters are mapped instantly.
If you want to explore this world, there is now an affordable option. Native Instruments is celebrating 25 years this year and for this event, they have lowered the price of the compact Komplete Kontrol M32 MIDI Keyboard. For a limited time, you can save almost 25% OFF.
Komplete Kontrol M32
The Komplete Kontrol M32 is the gateway controller to the NKS world. It’s compact, super mobile and offers a lot for the money. It has 32 velocity-sensitive mini keys. No aftertouch. On the left, you have two touch-sensitive touch strips for pitch bend and modulation. Then, you have 8 rotary encoders on the top, a big encoder on the left, and numerous DAW controls. The latter includes a smart play functionality with chords, arpeggiator, and more.
The keyboard integrates smoothly in all DAWs including Logic Pro, GarageBand, Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo, Studio One… Thanks to the slim design, it is not only a keyboard for the studio but also perfect for on the go. And talking about mobile music-making, the M32 controller also works with iPads and iPhones.
However, the design has one disadvantage, the connectivity is limited. There is a USB port that transmits MIDI, a foot pedal input, and a Kensington lock. MIDI sockets are missing here.
NKS, The Key Feature
A highlight is the automatic assignment of parameters from NKS-capable plugins. That means, no MIDI mapping is necessary. Plus, you get visual feedback via the small display.
The Komplete Kontrol M32 comes with an extensive software package incl. Ableton Live 11 Lite, Maschine Essentials, Monark, Reaktor Prism, and Scarbee Mark I. Further, it also ships with the Komplete Start package with 2000 sounds and a two-month subscription to Sounds.com.
Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol M32 is available now for 89€ instead of 119€ until November 4, 2021.
