Native has introduced the next generation of its six-channel audio interface.

Berlin, Germany (May 6, 2019)—Native Instruments has released the second generation of its Komplete Audio 6 interface.

Housed in a glass and aluminum casing, the unit’s physical layout has been revamped, moving some controls and adding visual feedback in the form of new LED VU-meters. Inside, the unit offers the ability to record up to 192 kHz / 24-bit, and new preamps with reportedly improved gain range and higher dynamic range for lower noise floors when recording.

The Audio 6 takes its name from the six inputs and six outputs onboard: 4 analog in/out (with DC coupled ¼” TRS outputs for controlling modular analog synths), 2 digital in/out (SPDIF), and MIDI in/out. They can connect mics and instruments, control external gear via MIDI or CV, create send and return loops with effects, and more, and the unit is USB bus-powered.

Additionally, the unit sports two headphone outputs for reportedly latency-free direct monitoring, and headphone output power has also been doubled from the previous generation.

Audio 6 comes with software for recording and building tracks, plus synths, effects and more, and it also includes Native’s Mod Pack, a set of three modulation effects, and Traktor LE 3, an introductory version of the company’s Traktor Pro 3.
