Default Built-in NKS support

It would be great if there were a way to integrate NKS support in Reaper or at least a few features like key switch labels and ranges. Instead of showing the keyswitch notes in the midi item have the area of the item with text and a different color for each of the key switch articulations.

Auto assignment of NKS controllers to track controls.

It would also be great to have a method of quickly selecting a range for keyswitches on non-NKS samples and synths.

NKS is not a feature to be implemented in DAWs.

Default Ahhh

I wasn't sure. I was just thinking how nice it would be if kontakt key switches were automatically labeled and items colored based on a each patch. Since that information is already sent from NKS compatible plugins for the NKS controller to read I figured maybe that data could be read by Reaper, but I really don't know anything about the protocol.

Nobody knows anything about that protocol except NI. That's why it's only working with their hardware only.

Default Third party

There are third party partners/developers that support NKS with non-Native Instruments plugins.

I doubt NI would allow patch selection (which I personally don't care about) and probably not controller data but I would imagine it would be advantageous for NI to allow DAWs to use key switch data for better integration with Kontakt. That would be selling point for their hardware.

Yse, those devs use NI's SDK only. There's nothing in that SDK that is applicable to a DAW implementation - everything revolves around integration with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol, that's it. I develop NKS stuff, btw
