NI Komplete Kontrol Keyboards Mk2 and Maschine Mk3

Postby Guy Rowland » Sep 07, 2017 4:06 pm

Look, real modwheel and pitch wheel!

...and lovely new screens. Looks a lot better all round. But some important buts, most importantly, there's no sign of an update to the 88 note version, still less a semi-weighted version of the same. Also, I don't see any improvement to the programming potential, which feels a wasted opportunity - there may be something that they haven't highlighted thus far though.

They also put a sound card in this gen, which is a smart move! Looks like a solid update. I wouldn't worry too much about the 88-key...if I remember correctly, it came out a bit later for gen 1 too, didn't it? Maybe I'm misremembering.

I think you are misremembering, but hope you're right that it will come. I remember talking to a fairly disbelieving NI man at a trade show that there was a market for a good pro 88 key semi-weighted. There again, he also seemed proud of those awful original mod / pitch strips and they've been replaced, so perhaps I shouldn't give up dreaming just yet.

Only Maschine, not the keyboard.

Ah, my mistake. I hope we have reason to be hopeful then! I personally still miss the 76-key size as 88 is larger than I want.
