Native Instruments Unveils Komplete Audio 6 Interface

Latest update enables recording at up to 192 kHz / 24-bit, low latency, and all-new preamps with improved gain range and higher dynamic range.

Native Instruments has unveiled the second generation Komplete Audio 6. Following the release of Komplete Audio 1 and 2 earlier this year, the Audio 6 rounds off Native’s new generation of audio interfaces. Perfect for small bands, duos, or solo producers, Komplete Audio 6 comes with a flexible set of connections for studio or stage.

The new Komplete Audio 6 follows the sleek, all-black design of its smaller siblings, this time featuring a glass and aluminum housing – refreshing its look and feel while adding extra durability. An improved layout places essential controls, connections, and visual feedback – including new LED VU-meters – exactly where they’re needed, for intuitive use.

Featuring a marked upgrade in sound quality over its predecessor, Audio 6 comes with high-definition recording at up to 192 kHz / 24-bit, low latency, and all-new preamps with improved gain range and higher dynamic range for lower noise floors when recording.

Six inputs and six outputs let musicians and producers bring their whole setup together: 4 analog in/out (with DC coupled 1/4-inch TRS outputs for controlling modular analog synths), 2 digital in/out (SPDIF), and MIDI in/out. They can connect mics, guitars, and other instruments, control external gear via MIDI or CV, create send and return loops with effects, and more, with the convenience of USB bus-power.

Komplete Audio 6 now comes with two headphone outputs, making it easy for musicians, singers, and producers to create together. With latency-free direct monitoring, playback can be blended with monitored audio to the desired level using a dedicated knob, to hear exactly what’s being recorded, in real-time. Headphone output power has also been doubled from the previous generation – great for stage use or high-impedance headphones.

Like Komplete Audio 1 and 2, Audio 6 comes with all the software needed to record and build tracks, plus synths, effects, and more. Audio 6 additionally comes with Native’s Mod Pack – a set of three innovative modulation effects, as well as Traktor LE 3 – a lightweight edition of the flagship DJ software, Traktor Pro 3.
