Product Overview

In this in-depth tutorial series, Adam Pollard aka Multiplier explains Native Instruments’ game changing KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MIDI controller inside and out, showing you the basics, how to use it with both NI libraries and 3rd party plug-ins and more!

Multiplier begins with an overview of the layout of the S-Series keyboards, as well as how to install the software you’ll need. That leads directly into a video on how to load instruments into the S-Series, and use the browse filters when searching through presets.

From there, Multiplier explores the creative tools you get with the S-Series. See how Scale Smart Play allows you to always play in key and to trigger chords, and how Arp Smart Play allows you to turn a chord into an arpeggio.

You’ll then learn how you can use the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series to control your DAW and use Smart Play with plug-ins that aren’t part of the KOMPLETE KONTROL software bundle. After that, Multiplier teaches you how to record the output of Smart Play as MIDI into your DAW.

Wrapping it up, Multiplier demonstrates how to load 3rd party NKS-ready instruments into the KOMPLETE KONTROL software and onto the hardware, and how to create and use Favorites when auditioning and selecting sounds in the browser.
