Several keys on the s61mk2 keyboard creak

I used two s61 MK2 keyboards. The new one has been used for nine months. As the use time is longer and longer, some keys will appear the spring creaking sound, and the key position with creaking sound will also become soft, which makes the hand feel very bad. S61 seems to keep the spring of the piano key through the spring, but the life of this spring seems to be a little short. Is there a friend in this situation, and can this problem slowly return to normal?

    You say you used 2 keyboards, ifs this because you had a fault with one and returned it?

    If your keyboard is under warranty still you can contact NI Support directly to ask about options:

    I am pretty certain the creaking sound is the sound of the pivot point of hte keys which would have some kind of lubricating grease to make the key silent. Over time with heavy playing this is bound to wear off so would need reapplication which if your keyboard is not covered by warranty, would be your only option to learn how to pull it apart and access the area to lubricate. It will not magically get better, you will need to do it yourself.

    There is a video around somewhere showing how to do this for the S88 version as that seems to suffer more from this kind of thing, too lazy to try find that so have a poke around Youtube for videos on opening the Komplete Kontrol keyboards
