Setting Up Ableton Live for KOMPLETE KONTROL | Knowledge Base | Support
Those are the instructions that I used. I did get the lights to work in Native mode with Ableton, but my understanding was that you wanted them to work in midi mode, which I can't get to work.

As far as using the instrument rack vs. the plugin, I can't tell the difference, they look and act the same from what I can see.

If you're using the plugin and switch between instances, the S-keyboard will not update itself when you switch to another instance. This only works with the instrument rack.

Ok so after some testing ive got confirmation through PM from Ashiyawolf as well... he managed to setup Ableton so that incoming notes trigger LEDs on KONTROL KEYBOARD

Ashiyawolf wrote in PM: I can verify that in it's regular mode that the keys light up from the midi notes in Ableton.

thanks Vathek and Ashiyawolf for going through the testing...

case closed... iam buying the KONTROL KEYBOARD very soon thanks to both of you guys... gearslutz rules...

btw. the NI pre-sales support didnt reply at all

cheers

Ok thanks. Didn't do the update as they don't say what it means. So it works in this version but not maybe in next.

Does anyone why I'm only getting full editing of instruments on my PC, but limited editing option on my Mac when using the Kobtrol software? This is strange to me!

And the picture is upside down for some reason...

Well sad to say, I have the s61 now and it does not offer transpose out to any daw, I hope they fix this, would be simple to press both transpose buttons at once and the turn the dial up or down.

It does work fine using scale mode with kk software, just chose chromatic and easy mode and change keys

glitches and oversights aside, are you feeling the software and keyboard bring value to your creative process?

I'm loving Komplete 10 Ultimate so much that it has me wanting this keyboard because of the mapping. I use Komplete most of the time by choice anyway. What I love about Komplete is the sound quality and the fact that I can take my projects from machine to machine and they all load up the same.

Is it just me or does anyone else feel the upgrade value from komplete 9 ultimate to 10 ultimate has lowered; 3 more reaktor synths and some more pianos? I don`t feel like upgrading for 400 euros...

From 9 Ultimate to 10 Ultimate you get 14 additional products with a combined sticker price of $1955 USD if you paid for them separately- so strictly economically speaking, I don't think $400 USD for the upgrade is that bad. And some places offer discounts anyway... I got mine for around $350 at JRRShop.

I was happy to get Action Strikes and Session Horns Pro in the K10U update, and those things are $299 apiece if you buy them individually.

If you don't think you're actually going to use many of those 14 products, then it might not be worth the price to you. But each of us has different creative needs. In my case, there were quite a few new things in the K9U->K10U jump that I was really looking forward to, so the upgrade saved me money that I would have spent otherwise if I had to get each thing I wanted individually.

Yea I agree with you, I'm coming from K8U to K10U so it was a good move for me. I actually skipped K9 for the very same reason.

Unless you really need a newly included instrument, I think every other update is more practical.

No, those are not the only additions at all. That would be ridiculous.

Hey thanks for the chart, enlightening. I think I`m just lusting for Molekular and Rounds tough, so guess I will skip it or get in at black friday or something.

I waited until Komplete 9 until upgrading from Komplete 5... so I guess I`m back in the "happy with my software selection" mode

I ended up getting the Alesis VI61, it has the same quality keys as the K series(I tried them both in Guitar Center). It came with Air Xpand!2 which is awesome and it was only $279 usd with drum pads.
