nks splash keyscape

Version 2.1 has just been released and now contains the Sound Preview feature! 
This browser pack contains NKS preset files for ALL 400+ Keyscape keyboard presets including mapped controls specific to each model preset. This will allow full browsing of the Keyscape instrument from the keyboard along with access to all controls for each instrument directly from the keyboard.

All presets have been converted NKS files which contains the preset sound information, tagging information and custom controls for every keyboard model. Keyscape Creative library for Omnisphere contains 20 pages of controls.


  • Supports Komplete Kontrol Software v1.9+
  • Supports Maschine Software v2.6+
  • Supports S series MK1/MK2 keyboards
  • Supports all Maschine hardware
  • Works on PC / Mac
  • Supports 32 / 64 Bit
  • Requires Spectrasonics Keyscape
  • Requires Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 (for Keyscape Creative library)

Keyscape Creative



For Omnisphere users you will receive the Keyscape Creative preset browser pack. 
This contains 1200+ presets for Omnisphere with full taggng and 20 pages of controller mappings. 
These presets should tie in nicely with Omnisphere Preset Browsing for Komplete Kontrol.



NOTE: You must own Omnisphere 2 and Keyscape for both librarys to work. If you only own Keyscape you will only have access to the Keyscape library presets. These presets were created using Komplete Kontrol software 1.5 but should work fine with the Maschine Software as reported by users. I cannot offer support on Maschine as I do not own it. 

New in v2.1

omnisphere banks

Banks in Omnisphere

If you donated for the Omnisphere NKS browser pack be sure that you have downloaded and installed the 2.1 version which now adds library Banks.

Keyscape now includes the “Keyscape Factory” and “Keyscape Creative” banks for Omnisphere allowing you to open a Keyscape instrument within Keyscape or Omnisphere.

Cleaner Tagging

Tagging in Keyscape has been corrected between the Keyscape Creative library and Omnisphere library’s removing some duplications and slight variations on the same tag.

Keyscape Factory for Omnisphere
Keyscape factory presets are now available as a library for Omnisphere. These offer loading direct into Omnisphere for sound design but do not contain custom macro mappings per preset, instead offer the same parameter map as Omnisphere presets.

Updated Plugin Artwork
Artwork for all NKS library plugins has been updated to fit in better with the style of the factory library. If you have the previous version 1 NKS library you will need to overwrite the IMAGES included with this release. 

Sound Previews
This update now includes sound previews for the preset browser. Every preset will play a small sound sample of the preset sound while browsing. This now adds some extra size to the download and the installation.

Free Version

The Free Download Version contains a handful of presets to test how the NKS installation and compatibility will work. You can download and install this for free to test things out before purchasing the full NKS browser pack.

Browser & Controls

Each keyboard/piano preset for the Keyscape VST has all macro controls mapped and tagged. Each preset differs and so too does the controller mapping:

Keyscape PresetBrowser

Controls when loading a preset into Omnisphere you will see a generic set of controls used for Omnisphere factory presets. Use the Omnisphere versions for sound design and use the Keyscape version for dedicated control (and before asking, No I will not create a dedicated map for presets within Omnisphere)

Keyscape PresetBrowserOmnisphere

Presets are tagged with full information. Artwork for Omnisphere is included with the Omnisphere 2 browser for Komplete Kontrol. 

Keyboard Velocity Settings

Because all parameters are saved with an NKS preset this means the keybed velocity is saved too. I have set a default velocity curve for the presets which will override your own preference. This is unavoidable but on page 1 you will find parameters to adjust the velocity curve and you can easily save presets as you go to save your own settings.

Sound Previews

As of v2.1 of the NKS preset pack you will now hear sound previews as you scroll through the library which speeds up the workflow when finding a sound. A small sound file with the name of the preset will be found in the ".previews" folder. If you notice any sound files missing, silent or corrupt please letn me know and I will have them fixed up.  

Support forum on Native Instruments forum Here



Can these presets be added to the Factory Library?
It may be possible in the future but right now they are accessible only via the User library.

Does this work with S Series MK1/MK2 Keyboards and MK2/3 Maschine?
Yes these NKS presets will work with the latest Maschine/Komplete Kontrol software and hardware  

I'm not hearing any preview sounds.
Check in the Factory library at the bottom of the library that the volume slider for previews is turned up. There is no volume control for the User library in the current versions of the software. Otherwise check that the preset folders contain a .preview folder inside (it may be hidden) 

Some tags or presets are missing?
Tags have been formatted to fit with the NKS standard as much as possible. This requires renaming some tags or consolidating similar tags to improve browsing as much as possible. If you happen to notice anything that needs fixing just let me know and I will get it fixed up. Donors will receive free updates to the preset packs when these are pushed to the site so worth the time to report if it's something major.

I’m having some Installation Issues. 
If you are having issues with installing and using the presets, check out the Forum Thread to ask other users who may have some solutions.

I have sent a payment but haven't received the download? 
You should now receive a download link straight away and also emailed to your PayPal/Website accounts email. 

If you have not received anything or something has gone wrong feel free to contact me and be sure to include your PayPal email address or copy of the transaction and I will fix it up for you.

Can I get other VSTs or preset library’s created as NKS? 
I can only create presets for instruments I own or have a copy of and the list I am working on. I am always on the lookout for new VST instruments at good prices so may do more down the track. If you are able to offer me a legal copy of a VST or can transfer me the library I can have a look if it is possible to make NKS compatible. If you are a plugin vendor it may also be possible to add NKS compatibility for official factory inclusion. Feel free to contact me.

Can I please have the script you use so I can make my own? 
Sorry it’s just not possible. I use a few different technologies some of which cannot be re-distributed and some of which has been very hard to program or obtain. I encourage all users to voice their opinions on the official forums to make NKS tools more easily available to users. 


This NKS preset pack is created with no affiliation to Native Instruments. I am not paid, or even supported by Native Instruments. Downloading and usage of this preset pack is at the users own risk. Donations are non refundable. There is no support or guarantee offered that these will suit your own application which is why a free version is offered to test

and assess. If you are satisfied with the free version then the donor version offers the same features and includes all factory presets. There is no guarantee that future versions of the Komplete/Maschine software will support these preset files.

Users are not authorised to share or distribute the files with anyone else without the consent of Freelance SoundLabs. A lot of work goes into managing this project, hosting the files and writing documentation and I am also an active forum member helping out users. Please do the right thing; the cost is only a few beers to help me out.
