Native Instruments has released the latest generation of its powerful keyboard controllers, Komplete Kontrol 2, bringing a wealth of new features both in software and hardware to the platform. We've had early access to the new gear and we're able to bring you a brand new course explaining and exploring the new generation of Komplete Kontrol hardware and software!
In these three videos from the course Komplete Kontrol 2: Complete Beginner's Guide, two of our leading trainers - Matt Vanacoro and Matt Cellitti - give you the lowdown on three key concepts and features that are found on the new units.
In the first video, Matt Vanacoro breaks down how to use the new Browser and screens on the keyboard to navigate, preview and load instruments from your computer and how instruments adapt to the Light Guide.
In the second video, Mat Cellitti walks you through how to use the new software and hardware inside Logic to directly control the DAW - something that hasn't previously been possible in the depth it is now. Mixing, automation and much more are now possible inside Logic from the Komplete Kontrol hardware. Watch below to find out how!
Finally in the third video we hand back to Matt Vanacoro to detail how to get fully hands-off with the new hardware, and he shows you many of the things you can do on your computer without ever touching it, simply by using the Komplete Kontrol hardware.
These are just some of the new and powerful features of the Komplete Kontrol 2 system. Be sure to watch the other videos in the course to find out everything there is to know about NI's latest generation of controllers.
