NAMM 2019 | Native Instruments Releases Two Compact Audio Interfaces and the Komplete Kontrol M32
Native Instruments launches the Audio 1 and Audio 2: two compact and affordable audio interfaces with premium audio fidelity. Plus, the new Komplete Kontrol M32 micro-size keyboard controller is the perfect entry point into the NI world.
As one of the market leaders in premium audio software and hardware controllers, Native Instruments has created a huge portfolio of virtual instruments & plugins, as well as a wide range of performance controllers for professional DJs, keyboard players, and producers.
New for NAMM 2019, Native Instruments has released two audio interfaces designed to give affordable access to the NI world. With high-fidelity sound and built-in mic preamps, the Komplete Audio 1 and Komplete Audio 2 (1 and 2 mic preamps, respectively) are perfect for musicians, podcasters, vloggers, and mobile producers.
Also new for 2019 is the NI Komplete Kontrol M32; a micro-size keyboard controller offering the perfect entry-point into music production with the Native Instruments ecosystem. The M32 features a "best-in-class keybed" and a wide range of controls, plus a selection of bundled NI software to get you making music straight out of the box.
Komplete Audio 1 | Komplete Audio 2 - Audio Interfaces
The new Native Instruments Komplete Audio 1 and Komplete Audio 2 audio interfaces offer compact and affordable access to audio production. With the ability to capture super-high-fidelity, 192kHz / 24-bit sound, the Audio 1 and Audio 2 are built for professional-grade audio.
Each Komplete Audio interface features 2 inputs for microphones (with phantom power) and instruments. The Audio 1 features a single mic preamp and jack input, making it ideal for solo musicians, podcasters, vloggers and anyone needing to capture speech. The Audio 2 features twin jack/XLR combi inputs making it ideal for capturing stereo sources; perfect for musicians, beat makers, performers, and producers.
With a large, top-mounted volume knob and LED VU meters, the Audio 1 and Audio 2 will make fantastic desktop companions. USB2 connectivity with both Mac and PC compatibility ensures these interfaces will fit in almost any computer setup, while the bus-powered operation makes them ideal for on-the-go recording.
The Audio 1 and Audio 2 come complete with a range of NI software including MASCHINE Essentials (full MASCHINE software plus 1.6 GB MASCHINE Factory Selection of samples/one shots/loops/instruments), REPLIKA delay plugin, SOLID BUS COMP compressor, MONARK monophonic analog synths, Ableton Live Lite, and a free 2-month subscription to Sounds.com (royalty-free loops and samples).
If you're looking for an affordable yet high-fidelity solution for recording music, podcasts, producing music, beat making, and more, the NI Audio 1 and Audio 2 are well worth a look for 2019.
The Komplete Kontrol M32 is another new affordable device from NI in 2019. With a best-in-class keybed, the M32 is a micro-size keyboard controller giving users the perfect entry point to the NI ecosystem.
The M32 features 32 keys for controlling all your virtual instruments and effects. A custom NI keybed provides a synth-action feel, while the Smart Play allows you to play over 100 scales and modes using just the white keys, as well as chord progressions and arpeggios from a single key. Two touch strips are also provided for intuitive expression control.
Eight touch-sensitive control knobs and a range of browsing buttons plus 4-directional push encoder ensure that the M32 will easily integrate with your software instruments and effects. Many functions are pre-mapped by NI for plug-and-play operation, while the onboard OLED display provides immediate visual feedback.
The Komplete Kontrol M32 comes complete with a range of software, meaning you'll be able to make music straight out of the box. KOMPLETE KONTROL software is bundled, as well as MASCHINE ESSENTIALS (full MASCHINE software plus 1.6 GB MASCHINE Factory Selection of sounds/instruments). Also included is MONARK (mono synth), REAKTOR PRISM (polyphonic synth), and SCARBEE MARK I (electric piano). The included Ableton Live 10 Lite allows you to work in a DAW straightaway.
