Under Kontrol: Komplete Keyboard for under £100!
Native Instruments have announced their cheapest Komplete Keyboard at NAMM 2019, the £99 Komplete Kontrol M32. Not only can you use it to access the vast array of instruments and effects in the NI artillery – this will also integrate perfectly with the rapidly growing list of NKS Partner plugins. The keybed on Native Instruments keyboards has always been well accepted in producer and music maker circles for its feel. The Smart Play features reduce any creative restrictions with the ability to lock in a particular key, scale, or chord – so your time is spent getting tracks laid down rather than learning piano from scratch! The new Komplete Kontrol M32 maintains creativity without the need of a giant controller keyboard; this micro-sized offering also comes packed with software (more on this below)
