Advanced Integration of KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 in Logic Pro X, GarageBand, Live
The second-generation KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 keyboards offer advanced integration in supported versions of Logic Pro X, GarageBand, and Live (see table below). This enables you to control the transport functions of your sequencer (play, stop, etc.) from the hardware, navigate through the tracks in your projects and control important functions such as undo, redo, metronome, count-in and Loop position (Logic Pro X, GarageBand only). You will also benefit from automatic track focus, which means that the hardware will always be mapped to the KOMPLETE KONTROL plug-in instance inserted in the currently selected track. Additionally, the selected track in your host will be armed for recording. This is required to route the MIDI notes from the hardware's keybed to the currently selected plug-in instance. If the selected track contains a third-party plug-in instead of KOMPLETE KONTROL, the hardware automatically switches to MIDI mode.
Note: The INSTANCE button on the hardware will not be active when using a host with advanced integration. In this case, switching between the KOMPLETE KONTROL instances is handled by the automatic track focus.
