At a glance, the KA6 shares the same design language featured on the entry-level Audio 1 and Audio 2 interfaces released earlier this year, with its sophisticated matte-black enclosure, large monitoring knob and LED VU meters.On the front, there are 2 combo XLR/ jack inputs with phantom power and gain control plus direct monitoring with an input/host mix knob so you can hear playback while recording. On the back, there are 4 DC coupled jack outputs, capable of the control voltage output of -/+ 2V so you can control external synth modules (Eurorack peeps I see you) alongside a stereo SPDIF output and a MIDI input and output. There's a large monitoring knob on the top with input and output LED VU meters.
192Khz/24bit conversion gives you top-notch audio quality and there's a healthy amount I/O here to satisfy the needs of many musicians and producers. The inclusion of dual-headphone jack outputs on the front makes it ideal for collaborations on stage or in the studio and NI have doubled the output power, useful for loud scenarios or high-impedance headphones.
Like the Audio 1 & 2 the Komplete Audio 6 features a huge software bundle that adds more bang for your buck, including Ableton Live Intro and Maschine Essentials. Check out the full bundle below:
