Default Komplete Kontrol w/EastWest? What keyboard do you like?

Hi just wondering if anyone uses NI Komplete Kontrol keyboard with East west and what they think of the mod section? Do you like it? Any issues with using it with east west?

Any other keyboards you recommend, if so, why do you like your keyboard controller for use with the east west sample libraries?

I have the S49 and so far I've had no problems adjusting to the "virtual" sliders. It's a little weird at first with no real wheel but I committed to it and "getting used to it" has been pretty easy. I think for expressive orchestration it works really WELL when you want to mod a swell gently with a french horn. But if I were trying to crank out a Chick Corea solo on a synth patch I'd probably want the feel of the physical wheel. Just my take on it, anyway. I so love the keybed on the Kontrol series it was worth getting used to, IMO.

The next version of PLAY has full support for the NI keyboards.

Cool, thx on all of this, just was worried the virtual sliders would not respond right for orchestral sample libraries, but sounds like they do not have a problem-they just 'feel' different to use. And with full NI keyboard support/a nice feeling keybed sounds like a good fit.
