Integrate Native Instruments Kontakt & Reaktor into Analog Lab
« on: September 07, 2018, 04:51:21 pm »
Great, you can load Arturia Synths into NI Komplete Kontrol, which is pretty useless for anyone with Keylab Keyboards (since Komplete does not allow Midi Mapping). Why not integrate Reaktor and Kontakt sounds into Analog Lab (if NI can do it, why not Arturia?). That way Keylab owners can also benefit from mapped keys, pads and rotary knobs for both Arturia AND NI Sounds. Make an announcement before people sell of their Keylab Keyboards to buy Komplete Kontrol Controllers. The situation right now is very much unequal....

Make sure, that you won‘t regret it, because NI Kontrol-S MkII and A-Series keyboards have a non functioning transport control in most DAWs, in opposition to my old Kontrol-S MkI, which works nicely. And NI customers wait for a solution since the release of the new keyboard generation ... most are pretty upset already.

I think Analog Lab would be the wrong approach for third party integrations. The name alone wouldn‘t fit.

But yes, Arturia should think about a similar control center like Komplete Kontrol for their own keyboards to make their own keyboards a real alternative to NI. But who knows, maybe there‘s already something in development?

PS: I think Analog Lab was too much developed for the V Collection. Even the new Pigments won‘t „fit“ from a concept perspective, because it‘s not purely analog.

Furthermore NI developed NKS to allow third party integration and made a deal with many vendors to support it. I fear Arturia will need something similar, which would take some time.

Take a look @ AKAI Pro VIP: http://www.akaipro.com/support/kb/articles/vip---everything-you-need-to-know-about-plugin-maps

Works with Non-AKAI-Controllers and has a huge amount of plugin mappings available - including the NI ones. And you can build your own MIDI maps.

It seems Native Instruments learned from Akai and announced, that the new Komplete Kontrol 2.1 will work with every hardware. Worth a try, because all Arturia softsynths are intergrated, except Pigments (which will follow soon) and Analog Lab. But for the later a community based NKS is available.
