Does new Mixcraft 9 now work with Komplete S61 features?

Hi,

I dont see much mention about Mixcraft 9 working with Native Instruments Komplete keyboard products such as the S61 and provide complete NKS control.

So I thought I would ask again, Besides just the normal midi keyboard control, Can Mixcraft 9 be setup and use more of the features of the Komplete s61 such as track control, adjusting volumes, etc. Does Mixcraft 9 work with the NKS scripts.

Seems many of the other DAW's now provide NKS control. Just thought I would ask. Currently I dont have a Komplete keyboard.

I do have Maschine studio hardware and software but have not tried to use it with Mixcraft 9.

thank you for any info,
Dave

Hi,

No, we didn't add NKS support. We still support MIDI control, Mackie Control and the button controllers listed under Control Surface preferences.

I would think you should be able to use MIDI learn to map some or all of those controls.

Thanks Greg for your reply and information.

I am still in debate whether to even get a NKS keyboard which they do look interesting what they do. Since I do have a Maschine Studio and Maschine JAM, Studio is the same type of device with similar features minus a keyboard capability to play.

I do have a smaller Akai controller 2 octave keyboard which I can setup the 12 controller knobs to do various things with Acoustica 9 and my main 61 key Triton sampler keyboard. Plus I do have a couple other types a midi controllers with foot pedals and a midi guitar which is a blast to play.

Thanks again and back to more exploring of Acoustica 9 features.

Hello,

I've noticed a few people getting Native Instrument MIDI boards and was wondering if there is any plans or thoughts of adding full compatibility with this? the MIDI learn button doesn't take full advantage of the keyboard with the quantize button and many others. It would be great to get full compatibility with this as its not too many buttons to be added.

Thanks,
Richard

I did get the Komplete S61 keyboard but have not tested midi with Mixcraft 9 other than playing notes. All I have done so far with the S61 is install Komplete software and to see if it comes up ok. With the Komplete software installed and all the music stuff I have, the Komplete software takes forever to come up to load and run with the keyboard. And I have a pretty fast PC computer.

I think most the controls on the keyboard only work with their Komplete software running. I do have Ableton and Studio one 4 that work better with this Native Istrument keyboard.

I also have the AKAI MPK249 49 keyboard and interfaces very well with Mixcraft 9 once I assign the various controls and setup a dedicated keyboard preset just for use with Mixcraft 9. I use this allot with Mixcraft 9 and other stuff.

take care.
Dave
