IMMERSIVE NKS INTEGRATION
Virtual instruments are fully realized with S49 Mk3's new advanced NKS technology. As well as being able to find your sounds and instruments easily with the intuitive browser, you can fluidly adjust and play 1000s of Kontakt and third-party instruments thanks to intelligent auto-mapping. Control integration with all major DAWs further enhances the keyboards immersive experience, meaning you can play completely real-feeling sounds with no interruptions to your workflow.
Native Instruments introduces all-new polyphonic aftertouch to their S-Series Keyboard, developed in collaboration with Fatar to deliver the ultimate keyboard experience. Using the polyphonic aftertouch you can control parameters expressively by applying pressure to the 49 semi-weighted keys. Modulate cut-off, pitch, vibrato, and much more instinctively with this incredible new feature. There's no need for any extra controls!
When you do require extra controls for your keyboard performance, the S49 Mk3 has got your back. Take musical performance to the next level with a new expressive touch strip, pitch and modulation wheels and four pedal inputs.
HIGH RESOLUTION DISPLAY
The S49 Mk3 features a beautiful high-resolution full-colour display, perfect for manipulating and mixing instruments in Kontakt 7 and intuitively browsing sounds with Komplete Kontrol. Improving on the previous model's two display design, the large 1280x480mm single glass display provides crystal clear visuals right at the center of the keyboard. You won't want to take your eyes of it!
The return of the built-in Light Guide redesigned for the S-Series Keyboards further enhances the immersive experience of the S49 Mk3. Positioned at the top of the keys, Light Guide identifies key switches, scales, sounds and drum cells at a glance so you can remain focused on your music, not the computer screen.
BUILT TO LAST
Native Instruments have reworked every aspect of the S-Series Keyboards design, manufactured to the highest level of quality. The keyboard's top shell is beautifully accented by anodised aluminum knobs, and pitch and modulation wheels. With this sleek new design and improved control layout, the S49 Mk3 will be the perfect center piece for any studio.
