- Orchestral: For traditional scoring, Orchestral covers your essentials. It includes woodwinds, brass, percussion, and strings, all meticulously sampled
- Acoustic: Discover 60 inspiring instruments from around the world in Acoustic. From flutes read more to strings, lutes, and mallets, this is your passport to distinctive acoustic sounds.
- Band: Your go-to for rock and pop, with picked and strummed guitars, driving basses, and classic drum sounds and loops.
- Synths: Synths introduces you to an eclectic, expressive range of modular and hard-wired synthesizers: from pads to basses, arpeggios, and drums.
- Vintage: Vintage takes you back with timeless sounds from iconic 20th-century synths and drum machines. Perfect for creating authentic retro vibes.

At the core
Bring Kontakt to life through deep integration with the latest Kontrol S-Series MK3 keyboards, the intuitive physical extension of your software instruments: featuring an immersive high-res screen, intelligent auto-mapping, and all your key switches and zones helpfully laid out on the Light Guide. Plus, with next-generation NKS technology, seamlessly dive into thousands of sounds, virtual instruments, and effects from Native Instruments' partners.

Stay in the flow
Use Kontakt with Maschine grooveboxes and earlier generations of Kontrol keyboards to browse and preview sounds directly from your hardware, control key parameters with dedicated knobs, and much more.
