  • 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.

  • This thing is amazing

    As reviewed by Matt Weeks on 4/23/2014

    Within an hour of setting it up I was recording in garageband on my mac mini. Sound quality, check. Great looks, check. Sturdy build, check. All you need to do is download the drivers from NI's website and adjust your audio settings then your ready to go. Only complaint is when I went to register the product at native instruments website it said serial number invalid.
