What are people’s thoughts on Komplete Kontrol, specifically the upcoming m32?
I currently have an Arturia Keystep, Komplete, and Logic Pro. I like the Keystep, especially the size, but since I plan to be working more with Logic and Komplete this year, I’m sort of eyeing this new similarly sized keyboard from NI.
My questions are:
• How do people like this line of controllers for integrating with Komplete and the DAW? Is the integration a huge workflow advantage or do you think it won’t bring much over using the Keystep and mouse?
• Is lack of aftertouch a dealbreaker?
• How is Maschine essentials? Too limited or a good addition to Komplete?
• Are there any other compact control surfaces out there that bring knobs and transport controls for Logic and the NI stuff that I could pair with my Keystep, to add the functionality I’m missing and keep the Keystep?
The minimalist in me doesn’t really like owning two keyboards, so I would probably sell the Keystep if I got this. For reference, I’m not really using the Keystep for outboard gear and I don’t use its sequencer (only the arp).
