Excellent Interface

31.12.2015
The Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 is an excellent interface. Certainly one of the best in its price range (and possibly the best). It?s quite simple to use and contains plenty of features without being too cluttered, and most importantly it has extremely low latency.

The unit itself is very well designed and built. It looks very sleek on my desktop. All the controls feel sturdy and are well positioned. The large main volume control is a nice feature and rotates smoothly for accurate volume adjustment. Setup is quick and relatively painless. It also ships with some nice software.

There are 4 analog I/Os and stereo S/PDIF I/Os. There?s also a pair of midi connectors which come in very handy. Power is by USB which is fine for most applications. It?s got a pretty good headphone output on the front panel with its own dedicated volume control. There?s even a button for direct monitoring which is very useful. The top panel has indicators which illuminate to show you the status of channels and functions you are currently using. The mic preamps sound fine for general use and you can certainly produce good results with dynamic and condenser microphones, but the on-board preamps will run out of steam with low output mics such as Ribbons. As a way of getting a guitar signal into a DAW, you would have to spend a lot of money to beat this unit. Conversion is taken care of by Cirrus Logic whose technology is highly regarded.

I have read reviews which state the KA 6 won?t phantom power 2 condensers at once, but I haven?t found this to be the case at all. I often double mic acoustic instruments with no problems whatsoever. I would like to see a polarity reverse on the mic preamps to help deal with phase issues that come up from time to time.

If you don?t need to record more than a couple of channels of audio at a time, then the KA 6 is definitely worth having a look at. It?s very good bang for the buck.

Extremely well-rounded and awesome value for money

DiezelPower, 03.01.2018
NI Komplete Audio 6 is my second usb audio interface from NI. I also own the older Audio Kontrol 1, which now takes care of soundcard duties in the rehearsal studio. The need for new audio interface emerged as I needed S/PDIF capable audio interface. Komple Audio 6 sits now in my home studio, taking care of all the duties small scale recording and running of monitors.

Komplete Audio 6 has pretty much every connection one might desire, including S/PDIF which is not included in every audio interface of this price range. Generous amount of inputs and handy knobs for signal level adjustment make the everyday use of this device a pleasure. With two XLR input channels, you can do your stereo recording of acoustic guitar, for example, while S/PDIF takes care of connecting things like Kemper to your DAW.

In around 200euro price range, this is well worth every cent.
