    This is from @EvilDragon over at vi control

    Direct page jumps as already mentioned

    * There actually are no pages, you can just use left-right arrows to shift by parameter, it's a continuum (it's called parameter group now, not a page)

    * There is a performance page that shows up by default (up to 16 parameters), then Edit button allows you subpages with deeper editing

    * Controller pages can be generated by KSP from Kontakt, ergo they can be dynamic and contextual

    * The above also means that the same parameter can be found on multiple parameter groups

    * Parameters can show as a toggle switch (and the encoder changes its behavior so that switches are toggled way faster than was the case before), as just a value, as an enumerated list, as a unipolar or bipolar knob, or the two iconized special cases (waveforms and filter types). More icons will likely be coming in future updates.

    From the last post via @Murat Kayi and @EvilDragon:

    * There is a performance page that shows up by default (up to 16 parameters), then Edit button allows you subpages with deeper editing

    Carrying this new performance page over to the desktop versions of Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol could be a stepping stone to scalable GUI.

    A standard sized panel for all NKS instruments would pop up after clicking on a preset when browsing. Raster legacy art would only come up if you clicked edit mode.

    thanks guys . Was just puzzled as it took 40 years to go from Midi 1.0 to Midi 2.0

    Things in the audio world move at a pretty slow pace, usually because when things are working people don't like to mess with it

    so basically is NI splitting its own NkS format into old and new tied up to its hardware generation after all the work being done ?

    I am not so sure about this. If you are actually interested in more details, EvilDragon has been very forthcoming with answering detailed questions at the the thread on VI and I got the impression that the next version of KK will run on older MK2 keyboards, too, which might mean that some of the NKS2 features might be accessible on older hardware - but this is just a guess, you should probably head on over there and participate in the thread

    Well, not wanting to vouch for my own case, I own an M Studio and a KK mk1. Excluding KK mk1 from the equation obviously I just wonder when talking about NKS as a New standard at some point it seems like deprecating it going that route without any logical continuity since the original technical and marketing approach and seem blurring a lot of things for consumers, professionals etc.

    It’s not a rant as you can see but just the expression of confusion towards what seemed to be planned . But we know how the company works, still at some point you ask yourself : “what ?!” 🤷
