At the 2018 NAMM Show, Native Instruments announced NKS-ready effects.
The company says that, as of Q2 2018, Waves, Softube, Eventide, and Sugar Bytes will support the Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) format. These platform partners have configured their effects plug-ins for use with NI’s Komplete Kontrol keyboards, Maschine, and the Komplete Kontrol software.
WIth plugins that NKS support, you will be able to browse, load, and control the effects directly from hardware, and create effects chains within the Komplete Kontrol software.
NI describes Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) as an extended plug-in format that enables a unified creative experience across virtual instruments, and now effects. It is designed to simplify the musical workflow, with tag-based browsing, instant sound previews, and integration with NI’s hardware. More than 400 instruments, from over 50 manufacturers, already support NKS.
