As part of its raft of product announcements today, Native Instrument has released details of its forthcoming Audio 10 and Audio 6 sound interfaces, as exclusively revealed on Digital DJ Tips last week.
These two feature-laden audio interfaces are designed to work alongside the four-deck Traktor Scratch Pro 2 software, and its two-deck equivalent Traktor Duo 2, to provide a brace of out-of-the-box, powerful digital vinyl systems.
Headline features include ten (or six) inputs and outputs, “Cirrus Logic® converters for supreme audio quality”, and “club readable” LEDs to display configuration. The Audio 10 has four phono premaps, and the Audio 6 has two.
Native instruments claims easy switching between DJs using the “thru” function, a record or CD could be played while two software DJs switched laptops. (This is different the the Rane SL4 which offers true dual-laptop support with two USB jacks.)
We can confirm the pricing to be US$449 / €399 for the Audio 10, and US$279 / €249 for the Audio 6.
Here’s the official Native Instruments video detailing their new audio interfaces:
