Buy this only when you have a lot of Kontakt VST

12.09.2016
I extensively use Kontakt VSTs, hence this is very useful during recording, but its pretty heavy for a midi kontroller.

Would only recommend if you are a Native user

Tr s good keyboard but manufacturing quality really revisit!

21.12.2016
I use this keyboard for about two weeks now and I have to say that I am CONQUIRED. I started with a Komplete Kontrol S61 but as a pianist by training, I finally could not resign myself to staying on a synth type keyboard, impossible for me to feel what I feel with a piano touch under my fingers despite my The initial idea that was originally to have only a small congestion.
Well missed for the clutter, obviously it is a keyboard 88 keys but then too bad for the place, we push the furniture and we make a reason !!
Because it is for me day and night! But it all depends on the use of each of course ...
Unpacking, very beautiful, sober line and neat, it exudes quality but then unfortunately for me only in appearance! I have all sorts of keyboards and I have never returned one ... but here I am at my 2nd exchange.
The first one I received contained a key (the "if" from the middle of the keyboard) so where one plays the most cracked. The 2nd came twisted and was not flat, all the right side (last 20 centimeters creaked with the plastic and keypad carcass). Is it a manufacturing defect or a concern during transport? (I have browsed several forums and apparently several users have had the same concern as me, and had to have the keyboard replaced several times, a different worry every time, you will even find youtube videos about it). So I can not say it but I would say a little both, and when you see the contents without a truck underneath some carriers (a subcontractor of UPS this time), well it scares! I know they are overloaded with deliveries in these Christmas days and I fully understand it but nevertheless, it seems to me that for this type of product UPS should ensure that the utmost care is taken to parcel. This is certainly not the case this time.
Let's pass this unfortunate event, I hope I just did not have a chance this time, thankfully Thomann's policy is exemplary and I thank them greatly! I expect a new keyboard in the next few days, cross the fingers so that this time everything is ok and that it is only finally fault in no luck !!
In short, and objectively if you work with the Komplete suite 10 or 11 (but not that), this keyboard is fabulous and you will gain precious time, no need to rummage with the mouse in all menus which is in the long tedious , You have everything at hand with superb knobs that are even endowed with the haptic return, ie a touch is enough to display the value on which the knob is fixed, no need to turn and lose the value in Courses. Very well thought out!
Also since the last update, Komplete Kontrol (the control software shipped with the keyboard) can now run other non-native plugins (other than Komplete 10 for example) and this is worth gold because, You will be able to use software / plugins formerly only usable in a DAW, now in Standalone, ie without logging in Pro Tools / Cubase / Ableton / Logic etc. The TOP no !!!!!?

If I had to ignore the few problems I encountered level of manufacturing quality, I would say, REALLY ... you will not regret it is a keyboard really TOP :) :) :)

That's what I think, and I do not have any actions at Native Instruments, nor at Thomann, I'm just starting from my experience trying to be as honest as possible. I hope in any case that it will have been useful to you and if your devotee goes on this keyboard ... believe me, it is not likely that you are disappointed, it is extra!

A word to add? YES, 3 actually: Thanks again Thomann !!!
