    Kontrol is an advanced MIDI keyboard controller available in three size options. Stay in the flow with an intuitive connection to instruments, effects, and your DAW, plus immersive navigation on a high-res screen. 

    The Native Instruments Kontrol 49 MK3 is a 49 key keyboard controller with deep software integration, a high-res screen, and polyphonic aftertouch.

    A direct connection with Kontakt
    Kontrol brings virtual instruments to life in a genuinely immersive experience. Whatever you’re playing, get in-depth control with deep Kontakt integration and next-generation NKS technology. Find sounds quickly with intuitive on-screen navigation, then adjust and play them thanks to intelligent auto-mapping that understands the parameters. This unparalleled direct connection means no interruptions to your workflow with not just NI instruments but thousands of partner sounds, instruments, and effects.

    Introducing polyphonic aftertouch
    Take expression one step further with the slightest pressure on individual keys. Bring new layers of nuance to your playing with cutoff, pitch, vibrato, and much more, without reaching for an extra encoder or dial.

    All three models come complete with polyphonic aftertouch on an industry-leading keybed developed in collaboration with Fatar. Plus, the S88 is the world’s first widely available controller keyboard to combine polyphonic aftertouch with weighted, hammer-action keys.

    Deeper into your DAW
    Smooth integration with all major DAWs means you can keep your eyes on your keyboard and away from your computer screen. Hit record, stop, and rewind on the keys, mix and edit, and see all your project’s channels on the display.

    Highly visual
    See switches, key zones, scales, and more lit up in front of you with the intelligent Light Guide. Chord Mode lets you create a progression by playing single keys, while Easy Mode maps the white keys to whichever scale you need.

    Plug and play
    Get connected to whatever you need with USB-C power and connectivity, MIDI in and out, and four assignable TRS pedal inputs including a default sustain and default expression.

    Built to last
    All three models are built from the same premium materials with a large glass screen, touch-sensitive anodised aluminum encoders and modwheels, and redesigned tactile buttons.

    Included software
    With Komplete 14 Select and Komplete Kontrol software included, you’ll be ready to go from day one.

    Komplete 14 Select is the essential production suite, including powerful synths, drums, percussion, studio-grade effects, and a load of customizable sounds. Komplete Kontrol unites and organizes all your instruments, effects, loops, and samples, mapping everything to the keyboard controller.

    Hit the ground running with polyphonic aftertouch presets in Hypha, a Kontakt instrument with an array of sounds inspired by nature. Plus get iZotope Elements Suite, Ableton Live Lite, Guitar Rig 7 LE, and more.
