The KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 keyboard allows to create and store individual MIDI Templates for different setups.
Sometimes it is useful to create a backup of your MIDI Templates, e.g. if you have to reinstall your operating system or want to use the templates on a different computer. In these cases, you can find the template settings file here:
- Mac: Mac HD > Users > Username > Library > Application Support > Native Instruments > Komplete Kontrol > 'Komplete Kontrol MK2 Settings.dat'
Note: The User Library is a hidden folder on macOS. To access it, click Go in the Finder menu bar and press down the Alt key. The Library entry will now appear in the menu.
- PC: C:\ > ProgramData > Native Instruments > Komplete Kontrol > 'Komplete Kontrol MK2 Settings.dat'
Note: 'ProgramData' is a hidden folder by default. This article explains how to make it visible.
Creating a MIDI Template Backup
You can copy the file 'Komplete Kontrol MK2 Settings.dat' and store it on an usb-stick or hard drive as a safety backup for future use. If you want to restore the MIDI Templates, copy the file back to the original location shown above.
Using Your MIDI Templates on a Different Computer
If you want to use your MIDI Templates on a different computer, you can simply move it to the same location on the new computer. Please note that you can only have one template settings file in that folder. If you do not need the existing MIDI Templates on the new computer, you can delete or overwrite the settings file. Otherwise you can also create a backup for future use.
- All your KOMPLETE KONTROL MIDI Templates are stored in that file. This means that you cannot export one individual template.
- Editing MIDI Templates should only be done in the MIDI Assignment Editor in the KOMPLETE KONTROL Software. We strongly advise against making any changes to the contents of the file.
- You can find instructions on how to create your own MIDI Templates in the KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 manual, in chapter 9 "Using the MIDI Assignment Editor".
