Native Instruments New Maschine and Komplete Kontrol Keyboard Revealed

in News
One of the biggest hardware overhauls this year!

Native Instruments have revealed a brand new version of the Maschine controller and Komplete Kontrol keyboard.

The most obvious update on the MK3 is the layout with the addition of two full-colour LED screens and all the buttons being much larger than previous versions along with new functionality buttons.

The MK3 now also features a built-in 96kHz / 24-bit audio interface, MIDI in and out, one-fourth dynamic mic input and line outputs and inputs; this is a massive deal as previous versions had plenty of MIDI connectivity but no audio I/O meaning you could not connect direct to your speakers – now you can!

Next up the Komplete Kontrol MK2 Keyboard which may not have undergone a major redesign however you will notice the new colour screens!

The new Komplete Kontrol Keyboard also features 17 additional functionality buttons, a smart strip, the four-directional push encoder and also added ergonomic pitch and mod wheels.

The Maschine MK3 and Komplete Kontrol MK2 keyboards will be available on 5th October 2017 via Native Instruments website.


The Maschine MK3 is priced at $599, the 49-key Komplete Kontrol MK2 is priced at $599 and the 61-key Komplete Kontrol is priced at $699, click here to pre-order today.
