"The Komplete Kontrol system brings Kontakt and Reaktor software to life, like having them all in hardware. An essential purchase if you have Komplete, and after seeing them in tandem you might just consider both as the ultimate music production package" - Music Tech (Rating 9/10)
"An absolute must-have if you use Komplete, and still a great USB MIDI keyboard controller for the studio if you don’t." - Keyboard Mag
"It’s extremely well thought-out and turns patch browsing and sound shaping from a chore into a breeze. The Light Guide and Native Map stuff is just awesome and means that you don’t have to be a MIDI expert or even much of a player to really get a lot out of your instruments" - Ask Audio Mag
