    I cant believe it... Another user without solution for KOMPLETE KONTROL and STUDIO ONE. Is it so difficult that they are compatible? Or is it just that it's really not interesting for NI? Honestly, with NI I just brought a pretty big disappointment. I just hope I can see my KK in the second-hand market and not lose a lot of money.

    It's a bit disappointing that the KK MKII does not support basic DAW functions as Play, Stop and Record in Studio One, but I am very content with the overall experience working with NI Komplete and KK MKII. You have almost everything you need, and there's no huge need to use other libraries (with some minor exceptions). So, I wouldn't agree with all you guys who express your disappointment with the NI products.  

    As to controlling Studio One, I am thinking of getting their native controller FaderPort 16 some day. That would be definetely the best way to control Studio One.

    It's 2019 already. So what now, another year without S1 support and no word from you guys?

    I would like to buy the KK MKII but without S1 integration there's no point to pay for the extra features if i can't use them.

    Don't want to be picky but it looks very unprofessional when NI doesn't even respond for more than a year to such a valid issue. All you've said was that's on your "backlog" list, but it looks like it's not.

    Looking more like it is on your "won't fix" list, just sayin' :)

    Sebastian:

    It is quite disappointing.  I already have MK2 S61 ... was hoping to purchase the 88, but would not even consider it now because of the lack of intergration ... I purchased the Nektar LX188 ... great integration with S1, and it is very affordable ... I love it ...

    I just returned my KK A49.
    I'm not going to keep a product that is not finished ...
    thank goodness the provider has understood my complaints, and has chosen to make me a refund.
    but it would be with a new product and without use.
    I imagine a buyer of a car, which only works by highway, although very well. then he can not drive it through the city, or through the town, or through the countryside.
    something like that is the feeling that I have right now with this product

    A few days ago I bout Studio One 4. The thought that the new (or any) NI boards would not properly be supported did never even cross my mind until I read about it in the forums both here and at Presonus. The integration of the new NI boards is one of the most demanded feature requests on the Presonus forums. I think the issue is both hurting NI and Presonus, since over on their forums people write they are not buying S1 because of the issue, just like here quite a lot of people write they would not buy a NI board if it is not supported in S1. I wonder in who's ballpark the implementation/integration really is.

    Sure, Presonus has their own controllers to sell, but they (as far as I see) dont have any keyboards? So I don't think Presonus would cannibalize themselves by supporting the NI Boards, and neither would NI hurt themselves by not supporting S1. So, I am convinced that either or both of them are simply not interested in an integration, but I have absolutely no idea why. I don't think it will happen. Not anytime soon or anytime at all.

    Cansado de esperar una respuesta de NI ayer compré un Arturia Keylab S61 Mark2.

    Hoy me llegó, lo enchufé, abrí Studio One y ... ¡se integró automáticamente!

    ¡Cuánto tiempo perdido esperando una integración de KK cuando tuve una solución inmediata!

    I was ready to purchase the S61 when I found this thread. NI, please wake up. I won't make a purchase unless Studio One is supported!

    Hello,

    When you say they are not compatible, do you mean all the features advertised dont work or just some of them?

    For example, I see the transport keys dont work with S1, but do the wheels that control the plug in settings work?

    Cheers.

    Hello there,

    Lee, this should be possible, please check:

    Is the combination of Komplete Kontrol S61 mk2 with SO3 a dead combination?

    In there a user states:

    "I bought a kk s61 mk 2 and use Studio One 3. Mod and pitch wheels work great and you can map the ribbon and after touch as you see fit. Ni instruments work as intended with full integration. Transport is available with a workaround. The dedicated transport controls do not work and will not until they integrate the controller. This is not so bad though because with the kk application and Studio One's robust midi learn feature you can label and map the 8 auxiliary buttons on the kontroller to transport and all sorts of things. You can create banks of additional buttons accessible via a quick button press to map macros and most anything else. This whole integration thing worried me at first but after working around the issue and setting up the auxes I think it's just fine for most folks. The keybed is very good and even without full integration I think this is the best dedicated controller you'll find for Studio One."

    Not a Studio One expert myself, yet theoretically this should be possible across various Studio One versions.

    Thanks Marcel.

    I use a KK S25 mk 1 keyboard, but have been scared off buying a mk2 S61, which I fancied for Xmas, and cancelled due to S1 v4 incompatibilities.

    .So your good response is starting to get there.

    I have another question:

    I use a 2100 pixel high res screen which is wonderful.

    But KK and Kontakt look tiny and are almost unreadable, even after scaling them up in NI prefs.

    So much so that I've largely ignored TRK-01, as the text is almost unreadable. It's no fun, even tho the plug is great.

    There is a facility in S1 to make things even bigger (called DPI Scaling), and this works great for every plug I own, except NI plugs where in, say, Kontakt or KK, a chunk of the user interface is chopped off at the bottom, making the plug unusable in this large scale mode.

    Try it some time. Load S1 and try to upscale Kontakt. It chops off a lot of the bottom of Kontakt.

    I know this isn't strictly a S series compatibility issue, but it still feels like part of the NI / Presonus lack of communication, or desire to arrive at common standards.

    This was my feeling at the start of this thread, and still remains, tho your current reply is a good one, and definitely helpful.

    I need more confidence before I spring for the S21 mk2 keyboard I'd really like.

    It's too much money to take a blind risk.

    thanx = kev

    Hello Marcel ,
    Excuses me, my English is not good,I hope I can ask you some questions.
    I bought a S88 MK2, I like it so much.
    But in S1 it can only be used as a normal MIDI keyboard.I also bought an Nektar LX25 for this purpose.
    I refer to the comments above.Know you're planning support S1.
    But how long will it take to support it?

    Please could we have an update about MCU? We've been waiting a year now at this point, eighteen months after the release of the product. A colleague of mine is blind, not having functioning transport over the past year due to no MCU has been a real pain. A real downgrade compared to the KKMK1 for him, and a real pain for everybody else with having to use a Maschine or Jam alongside it just to get functioning transport.

    We don't even use Studio One anymore, we use Reaper. MCU would solve the problem very easily than the current per-DAW integration seen.

    Hello Hammy,

    all that I can say for now is, that it's in our backlog.

    That may not be surprising for you, yet please bear in mind that our development is working on it.

    Hey there.. Like many other users on the thread I jumped into purchasing the Komplete Kontrol without even thinking it wouldn’t be supported in Studio One. I was really disappointed that two prominent companies wouldn’t be able to work something out. Also, what’s more disappointing is the lack of transparency and failure to reply to anyone on this thread for so many months. That’s just poor customer service. These people are looking for answers. If this integration isn’t coming, just say so. Don’t ignore the issue or say that your development team is working on it. C’mon guys.. and more specifically Marcel.

    Pierce,

    Which keyboard are you using?

    Which features work? I assume you can assign the control knobs and mod wheels to work like any midi keyboard - are you saying the plug-in information doesn't appear on the LCD screen on the keyboard?

    Lee,

    I picked up the Komplete Kontrol a25. Tried to connect using Mackie, but having no luck. It shows it’s picking up a signal although I can’t seem to get anything to work. I’m kind of a newb, so it may be user error. But from everything I’ve read it doesn’t appear that the Smart features, namely the Transport features are working.

    Let me know if I’m missing something.

    I primarily use the S88 MK2 in my workflow. The lack of support for this across the last several years is the only thing that is really turning me away from S1. They're going to need to do better.

    Hi Friends .. I was silent for a long time and watched the conversation. I am sad that Native (Marcel) is misty like smoke on the water. I bought S61, everywhere advertising about integration with all Daw software. Nothing like that. Without Daw control, it's just a $ 100 keyboard.
    Features are the same ... Just I bought it for 700 USD ..

    There is no support for presonus S1, Magix Seqouia (samplitude) or Avid Pro tools .. the question is why?
    Three Best Daw Off Native Game. Should I Buy Daw That Native Supports? It is sad. If Native wanted, integration would have already taken place.

    Marcel, I don't want honey around my mouth. I want the result. if not, let Native apologize publicly and give people money.

    Hi,

    I bought the new M32 controller and it does not work either.

    sure it's a business problem and not software compatibility, I'm a fan of Native Instruments but this problem is a shame

    I'm a Studio One 4 user and was ready to buy the S61 MKII and entering the Native Instruments Komplete world - but I'm not sure now, if integration still doesn't work. Sad!

    Just an FYI - It would seem that doing anything with PreSonus is a difficult task, even when their own products do not integrate together, they are not able to provide a solution. I purchased the Studio 192 because of it's "integration" into Studio One - Nope - the drivers are half baked and I've been living in a nightmare world with PreSonus the last 2 months. I was "advised" that I needed to wipe my computer by their tech support, only to find that even on a clean system with nothing but the 192 and Studio One installed, the problem still exists. 

    I remember the days of having to midi-map and macro things around to make things work together. But to think that this is still the solution of the day, where multi-billion dollar companies can't afford to invest the development time and money to give the consumers who have supported them for the entire life of the product, is baffling. If I wanted to spend days doing configuration I would have stuck with Cubase, and at this point Cubase may be the only stability out there right now because of it's ability to configure strict controls. Then again, maybe this is why we all have 4 or more DAWs on our workstations. Because None of them do it all the right way. 

    Seems like a business opportunity to me. But then again, that would mean having to knock on PreSonus's door and request access to their development. What a tangled mess.. 

    I love my Komplete S61 MKII and Maschine MKIII and some of the integration that's happening with them. It's very nice to see these products moving further into the future.. 

    Be Blessed!!

    Hello! I'm a S1 user and will be purchasing a new midi keyboard soon, and it has come down to NI or Arturia. Assuming that KK is completely integrated into S1, I'm leaning that direction. Can anyone tell me whether or not, at this point, all features from the KK are usable in S1? It appears to be a rather long-running issue. Thanks in advance. Jeff

    Hi. I was in the same situation as you and seeing that NI did'nt answer or seem interested in our concern I decided to buy an Arturia 61 MarkII and I am very happy, the integration is total from the first minute without having to do anything. Greetings.
