Good But
Fin_sm, 26.11.2018
I bought this Controller to interact with Cubase LE and Acid Music Pro
Its well built, with very smooth knobs and buttons, 8 of which are touch sensitive. It also has a series of buttons to interact with the DAW such as stop, play, rewind etc, and you can browse Komplete Instruments with a control knob then select straight from the keyboard.
So why only 3 stars?, Because I feel they released this device too early, the supplied software "Komplete Kontrol" does not fully support it, and the "Controller editor" software does not work with this keyboard. And also, I cant find any option to control the key velocity, as it stands you have to pound on the keys to get a reasonable level of sound.

There is currently no method of reassigning buttons or the keys on this device at all. Native Instruments state it will be supported by Komplete Kontrol "as some time in the future"

In hindsight, I should have waited until "some time in the future" before purchasing this device.

My advice, buy the S series if you can afford it, otherwise wait a while.

Not for FLStudio Users
ClaudiuSchwartz, 04.04.2019
PROS:
- Build quality, knobs & mod/pitch wheels are very responsive and have a very nice feel.
- The keybed is very nice, even if a little noisy and stiff in the beginning, after playing on it for a day, it comfortably loosens up.

CONS:
- NI it's "policies"...
- If you use FLStudio, get prepared to map your keyboard over and over again using CCs. It doesn't happen in Ableton, it's fully integrated there - except for the arp and chord functions which only work with KK's sofware (you can use it as a plugin in your DAW)
- The KK software is nice but bugged like nothing else: it often fails to recognize plugins/libraries, even those provided by NI with the keyboard itself, so be prepared to reinstall plugins/libraries (some of them several times) and be prepared to give up on some of your own which KK doesn't recognize at all.
- No integration with Kontakt 6 itself, sometimes fails to recognize Kontakt as a plugin.
- Velocity is broken - at least on my keyboard - you need to hammer the keys to get to 100-110, you only hit 127 with fixed velocity.
