Native Instruments has announced the release of an update to its Komplete Kontrol software in support of the new Komplete Kontrol S MK3 range of controller keyboards, which are available to purchase now in-store and online.

KOMPLETE KONTROL is a easy-to-use tool that cleans up your workflow. It organizes all your instruments, effects, presets, loops, and samples, smartly mapping everything to your hardware so you can find, play, and tweak all your sounds in one place. This free plug-in runs in any DAW and works seamlessly with any MIDI controller – or your trusty mouse and keyboard.

Note that starting with Komplete Kontrol 3.0, future software releases will no longer be compatible with MK1 series keyboards. MK1 users should not update to version 3.0 as both versions can’t live side by side.

The MK1 keyboard will continue to work with Komplete Kontrol 2.9 (or lower), which includes Apple Silicon and VST3 support. However, Native Instruments will no longer maintain older versions of Komplete Kontrol and cannot guarantee they will be supported by future versions of your computer’s operating system.
