Feature Comparison Original to Mk2
« on: July 13, 2018, 11:30:44 pm »
Wondering if this is already posted somewhere official. If so, a link would be great.
What are the EXACT improvements/Updates from the original KeyLab to the KeyLab Mk2 Controllers?

I'm looking at an 88-key original. Wondering if I might be better served by a 61-key MK2 version, if upgrades are compelling.

Also, are there any SW updates to the original series based on Mk2 implementations?

I'm interested to know if there are any downgrades, such as NI KK Mk2 users have discovered this past year (i.e. features reduced or removed!)?

Thanks in advance for any help here.

Craig

Hi Matt,
Can I use it to control my hardware rack sampler like an S1000 without a computer? Do I need to buy a separate power supply to do this?

Hi,

You can use the KLMK2 to control any hardware that use classic MIDI protocol and/or Control Voltage.
If you wish to use it without a computer yes you need to buy a separate power supply.
In User Mode, all parameters (pads, encoders, sliders, wheels, CVs etc...) are editable directly from the hardware if you don't want to use a computer and the Midi Control Center.

Regards,

Matthieu
