About Native Instruments MIDI Keyboards and Controllers

Native Instrument MIDI keyboards are loved for their hardware integration and enhanced workflow.
You're going to love the premium feel of the keys on a Native Instruments keyboard, but the genius in their design is how they integrate with the Komplete Kontrol software. Designed to allow you to search, select and edit sounds without you having to move your hand over to the mouse, you'll find that this approach vastly improves your workflow.
Every preset in every Native Instruments plugin, as well as many other virtual instruments by other brands, have been tagged with details of each sounds unique characteristics. These include if the sound is short or long, hard or soft, acoustic or digital, polyphonic or monophonic. Many more key characteristics are tagged to make it easy to find the type of sound you're looking for.
This means that if you're looking for a glockenspiel sound, every glockenspiel sound in your instrument library will be brought up in a list. You can then quickly scroll through the sounds to find your favourite. This breaks the habit of going to the same handful of plugins each time you create a session.
In addition to the tags, each preset is also mapped to the controls on the keyboard. This enhances your workflow even more and negates the need to go to your mouse to edit patches.
Native Instruments MIDI keyboards have pioneered this unique approach to controllers. They have won many awards as a result!
