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.

Nice hardware but driver issues

26.05.2014
I used this interface for one year. I was very happy with the hardware itself. It is well built and has an elegant look and feel.
The sound quality was good and the features sufficient for simple home recording purposes.

That being said I wasn't happy with the Windows driver and the support at all. After some time of usage the interface produced annoying pop and click noise. Only disconnecting and reconnecting could resolve this issue. The user support did not really try to help, they just sent a guide which described how one could optimize the computer. Unfortunately I already did optimize my computer which was a high end system at that time.
I was not the only one with this issue, in the Native Instruments user forum there is a large thread about it. That's why I recommend to take a look at this thread before you make a purchase.

Of course you might as well be lucky and have no issues at all with the KA6.
