“So 10 of the players were running the S61 keyboards and two were using the 88-note ones, plus there was the one that Gillian has. Again she had exactly the same setup, with a laptop running MainStage and the Komplete Audio 6 supplying the audio from the laptop, but with Gillian there was a bit of a hybrid situation. She likes the Native Instrument keyboards and now uses the S88 weighted one, but she has still been using the odd thing from the Fantom and Mopho.more
In this Instagram post, an user asks him: " augustkvarnryd Soundcard???? " So, later he replies : " jeromepriceuk @augustmassaro Its Native Instruments Komplete 6 I think off my head " Meaning that Jerome Price used a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 Audio Interface for his productions, before he switched to an Universal Audio Apollo Twin High-Resolution Interface with Realtime UAD Processing.more
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. The Komplete Audio 6 package also includes Komplete Elements with over 1000 sounds and effects, plus software for recording, sequencing and DJing.
Komplete Audio 6 lets you experience every facet of your sound, whether you're playing virtual instruments or recording audio. After all, if you're using Maschine or Komplete instruments and effects, you're armed with an array of sounds in the highest-possible audio fidelity. Komplete Audio 6 gives you the hardware to match.
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. From the custom, streamlined circuit design, through the hand-picked components to the analog volume knob on top of the unit-every part of the interface is designed to preserve signal clarity.
Komplete Audio 6 is designed to be flexible, with plenty of options for connecting mics, guitars, MIDI instruments or outboard gear. 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.
Komplete Audio 6 includes a generous software package, so you can produce songs or mix tracks right out of the box:
Komplete Elements- over 3 GB of inspiring instruments and effects
Cubase LE 5-sequencer and recording software
Traktor LE 2-DJ software
My review of this sound card may not be fair— see, I don't just use it to produce, I also use it in my live shows, which it wasn't necessarily made to do (Native Instruments makes other sound cards for those purposes). Still, this sound card's extremely sturdy build (I have this strange theory that it could survive falling out of an airplane, though I'd prefer not to test it) and flexible input/output options have served me without fail for the last couple of years, and it's still as functional as day one.
It's certainly not the cheapest sound card on the market, certainly not for performance— but if you can afford to dedicate money to a properly powerful sound card for your productions, I heavily recommend the Traktor Komplete Audio 6.
The build quality and design that Native Instruments put into the Komplete Audio 6 Intercace is really impressive. You scan tell they care about their products, as their consistency is the same throughout their products. The preamps on this little magical recording interface are fantastic for a company not known for making interfaces at all. The amount of inputs will make this interface last for me for years to come, highly reccomended.
I love this audio interface. I think it's perfect for someone like me, who is just a couple years into my audio production work. However, as with all hardware & software, I do have a gripe or two. The main one is that outputs 3 & 4 are not monitored. I wanted to hook up a DJ controller to my inputs and then be able to monitor the DJ controller thought my 3/4 outputs, but that is not a possibility. I found a different way of hooking up my controller and everything works fine through Traktor, but it would have been nice to have it the way I originally wanted.
Although I have an Akai EIE Pro, the Komplete Audio 6 iOS definitely my go-to audio interface. Great sound quality and never had problems with it. Also very portable to take to a live gig.
Does what it's supposed to do. The only downside I think is that you cannot control the levels of input 3&4 (other than 1&2), which can be quite annoying because I always record 2 stereo signals through a Direct Box, a dry signal and a signal with lots of effect pedals on top of them. Channels 1&2 are always much louder than 3&4 and there's no way to even this out on the interface itself. Other than that it's a great interface!
A great unit. I had an issue with mine and it started throwing walls of white noise. Contacted NI in Berlin and they replaced through supplier in my country. 6 inputs, TRS / XLR combo jacks on front, MIDI connectivity and balanced and unbalanced speaker connectivity, as well as 48v phantom power for mics, this unit packs a wallop. USB powered and connected means I can take it and my laptop on the road and record whatever, whenever. Big Volume on top is cool, and the lights on top are clear, easy to read and are very intuitive, but if they were front mounted so it could slide into a shelf/ rack/ recess, I would do it in a heartbeat. Mine came with heaps of trial software, an entry level version of Cubase, and a free upgrade to Native Instruments Guitar Rig 5 pro. Every Christmas, they email you out vouchers and specials and a free gift from their range. Worth every $.
I got this interface in early 2016 after having such a bad time with the akai eie interface. I've had no problems with this interface, it's the best one I've ever used and it does the job very well.
This is one of my favorites sound card with really massive construction. when you get it in your hand you can feel how heavy is. I recumbent this great product for studio monitors and recording vocals and guitars
I can't live without my sound card. I use it for pretty much everything, recoding live instruments and vocals. I have to say its been the best investment and the sound quality is amazing. The advantage of having complete control of your entire volume from a top controller knob is essential. A must have for anyone looking for solid card. Native Instruments nailed it.
This interface features everything you'll ever need: MIDI I/O, SPDIF I/O, 4 Input Channels (2 Neutrik and 2x2 6,3mm) and is built solid with the best materials - alloy and glass. It just looks great and has amazing specs inside!
