Native Instruments has just announced KOMPLETE AUDIO 6, a high-performance

six-channel audio interface for studio and live usage. As the successor to

the acclaimed AUDIO KONTROL 1, it provides more connectivity, increased

audio performance and a host of practical new features, complemented by a

versatile software package for music production and DJing.

Based on the latest generation of Native Instruments’ USB audio

interface technology, the KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 addresses the typical needs

of musicians and producers in a highly portable and affordable package.

With four balanced analog inputs and outputs, complemented by a digital

S/PDIF stereo I/O and an integrated MIDI interface, the unit can be used

as the centerpiece for a wide range of setups. Due to 24-bit/96kHz

Cirrus Logic converters and powerful +11dBu analog output stages,

KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 delivers pristine audio quality for studio and stage,

while revised Mac OS X and Windows audio drivers enable robust

low-latency performance.

KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 accommodates a wide range of recording scenarios with

its dual microphone preamps with XLR connectors and phantom power,

individually switchable hi-Z inputs for electric guitar and bass,

assignable headphone section, and flexible zero-latency direct

monitoring function with mono switch. The completely bus-powered

interface is protected through a rugged aluminum enclosure that also

provides 15 status LEDs for convenient signal monitoring, and also

features a specially designed USB socket that prevents accidental

disconnection during live sets. A large analog volume control on the top

of the unit allows users to easily adjust the main output level,

avoiding the loss in audio resolution inherent with common digital

volume reduction.

KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 also includes a versatile software package for music

production and DJing. It comprises KOMPLETE ELEMENTS, an all-round

instruments and effects collection with over 1,000 studio-grade sounds;

the new entry-level DJ software TRAKTOR 2 LE based on the latest TRAKTOR

PRO generation; and the Cubase 5 LE sequencer from Steinberg. Also

included is a $30/25 € voucher that can be used towards any download

product in the Komplete Instruments and Effects range.

KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 will be available in May 2011 for a suggested retail

price of $339 / 299 EUR.
