Overall: I think this is the ultimate controller for those why have Maschine Studio or Komplete Kontrol 10 which I have both. The intergration is amazing makes my workflow so much faster. and With zZounds having the payment plan, makes it that much easier to make the decision to buy and buy more.

Overall: This is my first MIDI controller, I have to say it's incredibly fresh, I like the aesthetic, I like the lighted keys, and the touch sensitive knobs and mod/pitch strip wheels, and on top of that, the seamless integration with KOMPLETE.

Overall: Ive been itching to get one after the transpose stopped working on a previous midi I had and man what a treat this is to have along side my Maschine Studio. A powerful combination the two are together with Komplete 10 and the Fatar keys are a dream. Love the build quality and the weight of the keys is fantastic.

Overall: First, I have been shopping at Zzounds now since 2012 and I cannot say stongly enough how it has changed the way I purchase gear, simply put, it is the BEST! As far as the Komplete Kontrol 49, I love the construction,the tactile feel of it, and the fact that I could purchase what I really wanted (the ULTIMATE Software) as a crossgrade...makes this one of my fav purchases this year!!! You just can't go wrong!

Overall: The s49 is awesomely built and has potential to be a winner but the lack of current integration with maschine is a real deal killer for loving this hardware. Native-instruments should have thought this through before releasing these keyboards. It does not kontrol maschine or integrate with maschine in any way when it comes to controlling the software or parameters of plug ins. It's just like owing a regular midi keyboard for now, nothing special. Still waiting on maschine 2.2 update to release before I can really recommend buying this keyboard. All I can say is that it has potential!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
