I've been thinking about upgrading my keyboard controller to one of the NI S-series keyboards.  Having the color-coding to display the shifts-by-instrument key-switching on all of my orchestral libraries is very appealing, but I usually work with those libraries in VEP (I use Pro Tools, fwiw).  

I have not been able to find out if the Komplete Kontrol features from the keyboards will work with instrumtns being hosted in VEP.  I've looked around.  A few people have asked this question, but no one seems to have any hands-on experiece they've shared.  

So, is anyone here running VEP and controlling their hosted Kontakt/KK instruments from an S-series keyboard?

I use the KK from NI, the 88 key model ;)

It is not supported by VSL yet. VSL has to send information to the KK to light up the keys and to send the parameters names ; so only VSL can make it work

The best you can do is to post a kind demand to , more we are to ask for it, more there is chance we get it


Thanks VSL for reading this, one more KK user to use this great keyboard ;)
