Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 is a premium-quality 6-channel audio interface. It provides everything you need to record, play and perform music, with four analog ins/outs, digital in/out, MIDI and low-latency performance—all in a sleek, rugged metal casing. The two mic inputs are armed with high-end pre-amps while Cirrus Logic converters deliver pristine, transparent sound. Upgrade your setup with Komplete Audio 6—because Komplete sounds better.

Pristine sound doesn't happen by accident—it's the result of knowledge, experience and close attention to detail. Komplete Audio 6 has been designed in-house by Native Instruments.

New chips, new audio drivers and new circuitry ensure that latency is low, and the direct monitoring option provides 100% latency-free monitoring for recording guitars, vocals, or other live sources.

  • Love this thing!

    As reviewed by Jonathan Wilson on 9/9/2011

    I Needed a simple interface with a few ins and outs to complete my home studio. At first it met my expectations and as time passed I acquired more and more gear and The Komplete 8 handles it all! Just earlier today my buddy was here playing guitar through the interface and Let me tell you, it sounded soooooo crisp and clean. Buy this! It also came with cubase LE 5 (i dont use it) as well as Traktor and Elmements!

  • Rarely do I write a good review

    As reviewed by Robert Faucett on 12/17/2012

    I am so impressed with this product I do not know where to begin. Software works great, well constructed, sound quality is awesome, plenty of ports in and out. Great for portable recording on a laptop. Works great through headphones and through my amplifier. I could go on and on. Using cubase 6 elements, studio drummer(kontact), maschine mikro, and guitar rig. Thoroughly impressed with Native instruments, would recommend to anyone.

  • Was worried at first.

    As reviewed by Simon Taylor on 9/18/2013

    At first i was worried because i had heard tons of stories about this device having terrible drivers and having to constantly unplug/plug it back in to get it to work correctly. I had bought it used so there was no cd with it, which wasn't a problem because NI has a very easy website to navigate. i downloaded the latest driver and installed it WITHOUT HAVING THE DEVICE PLUGGED IN! as it says. and i have yet to have any real problems with it. when my screen auto dims it jumps for a second (which isn't a big deal when I'm producing anyhow cause that feature is turned off). and i ONCE had a problem with the headphone jack but as i reached to mess with it it fixed its self. i am on a Windows computer and have used this product with Reason, Reaktor, and Reaper and have had little to no problems with it. the build quality of this thing is excellent! the knobs have absolutely no looseness, even the huge main volume 1/2 knob! no loose feeling jacks. its a hefty piece of equipment and i believe it breaking wont ever be my reason for parting with it. i have yet to try the XLR or Phantom power on the thing. though i have 2 separate guitars through it and it came out very clear and pleasing. i have also enabled the phantom power to check for any noise that it may give off and it was still silence coming through my Yamaha's even at quite a high level. I'm giving this product 5 stars because i cant find any problems with the thing! id recommend this to anybody!
