So I just figured out a hack for Komplete Kontrol, with generic midi keyboards. You can use any specific midi keyboard controller (or controller in general) that has both knobs and buttons…. even if it all assignable midi parameters transmit on one GLOBAL midi channel (this is annoying).

This specific midi keyboard controller only transmit midi CC data only on a GLOBAL midi channel, and furthermore, you can’t change the button behavior from Momentary. Doubly annoying!

Here’s an easy walkthrough, with Reaper 5:
