Good Hardware, Poor Integration
Ahmed Aziz, 06.06.2020
This is a really well built, nice-feeling midi controller, but it integrates poorly (at least on my Windows set up). When it works, it really puts you in command of the NI instruments you own and is an upgrade to the experience of working with them.

However, too often it just doesn't work. Most times it is not recognized by the Komplete software, or at least not fully (knobs function but keyboard doesn't). I read posts saying to activate it in Midi settings in the Komplete standalone to fix this problem, but I have to do that every time and even then sometimes it just will not activate.

So overall, I cannot recommend it. The time I've lost trying to get it to work is measured in hours, not minutes, and when I have pressing deadlines this is an inspiration killer and stress inducer.

If you want soft and sensitive keys - be sure to buy it!
Damian Wasse, 25.11.2019
Very pleasant to the touch, pressing and softness. They are like real piano mechanics, but still remain half-weighted. NI achieved the perfect technology to get as close to hammer mechanics as possible. I am a pianist and I feel it, very soft pressing, smooth and sensitive. You will be delighted. Super soft and pleasant knobs & modulation and pitch knobs - processed with special rubber, which gives a tactile delight. Highly recommend!

Not for FLStudio Users
ClaudiuSchwartz, 04.04.2019
PROS:
- Build quality, knobs & mod/pitch wheels are very responsive and have a very nice feel.
- The keybed is very nice, even if a little noisy and stiff in the beginning, after playing on it for a day, it comfortably loosens up.

CONS:
- NI it's "policies"...
- If you use FLStudio, get prepared to map your keyboard over and over again using CCs. It doesn't happen in Ableton, it's fully integrated there - except for the arp and chord functions which only work with KK's sofware (you can use it as a plugin in your DAW)
- The KK software is nice but bugged like nothing else: it often fails to recognize plugins/libraries, even those provided by NI with the keyboard itself, so be prepared to reinstall plugins/libraries (some of them several times) and be prepared to give up on some of your own which KK doesn't recognize at all.
- No integration with Kontakt 6 itself, sometimes fails to recognize Kontakt as a plugin.
- Velocity is broken - at least on my keyboard - you need to hammer the keys to get to 100-110, you only hit 127 with fixed velocity.

It's okay
Toefes, 11.03.2020
The features on this keyboard with Kontakt are really nice. However, the velocity on this keyboard is lacking big time. It is either way too soft (10-40 range) or way too loud (100+ range). I'm used to it now, but I wouldn't buy this keyboard a second time.
