Native Instruments Announces new DJ Audio Interface Line

New TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 and TRAKTOR AUDIO 10 interfaces offer more I/O, Direct Thru feature, improved signal monitoring and TRAKTOR LE 2

Native Instruments today announced TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 and TRAKTOR AUDIO 10, the second generation of its acclaimed DJ audio interface range. With expanded connectivity and additional features for club use, the new models can meet and exceed all professional requirements of digital DJing - both as the hardware centerpieces of the new TRAKTOR SCRATCH generation and as highly versatile audio interfaces for any DJ or music production software.

With 6 respectively 10 analog inputs and outputs respectively, the AUDIO 6 and AUDIO 10 both offer two additional channels over the previous AUDIO 4 and AUDIO 8 models. Even when all decks of the TRAKTOR software are routed to individual channels for external mixing, a further stereo I/O remains available - for potential use with the Loop Recorder and Sample Decks, as a dedicated effect send/return, to record an externally mixed set back into TRAKTOR, or for other creative routing purposes.

With your 24bit/96Khz Cirrus Logic converters and powerful +12 dBu output volume, the AUDIO 6 and AUDIO 10 maintain DJ-specific audio characteristics, with signal quality further enhanced through improved electrical engineering. The improved high-visibility LED indicators also allow for clearer and more intuitive monitoring of the signal chain even in low-light club environments.

A further advantage of the AUDIO 6 and AUDIO 10 is the new "Direct Thru" bypass function, which can be toggled individually per channel remotely from the computer. In a typical club setup, an engaged "Direct Thru" passes the signal of the turntable or CD deck directly to the hardware mixer, even with no computer attached. This allows for convenient switchovers between successive DJ sets, and makes the new interfaces especially suitable for permanent club installation.

AUDIO 6 and AUDIO 10 also include TRAKTOR LE 2, a new entry-level DJ software based on the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2 generation. With two decks, an efficient sync function as well as versatile looping and effect functions, TRAKTOR LE 2 is an perfect entry into digital DJing.

The ultra-compact AUDIO 2 DJ interface continues to be available without any technical changes under the new name TRAKTOR AUDIO 2, and also comes bundled with the new TRAKTOR LE 2 software.

DJ audio interface with six inputs and six outputs for DJs seeking versatile performance hardware for booth and studio.

Get ready to unleash the full sonic potential of your tracks with TRAKTOR AUDIO 6, the high-gain audio interface for DJs who demand premium audio fidelity and extra-loud output. TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 boasts six inputs and six outputs and is destined to be the centerpiece of your live or studio setup.

This premium DJ audio interface is built on the established and award-winning design of NI audio and hardware gear: Extra-robust metal casing, high-end Cirrus-Logic AD/DA converters, brand-new chip technology and completely revised driver architecture ensure top audio fidelity and low latency for professional use on stage and in the studio.

Connect up to three stereo sources simultaneously. The two included phono preamps allow the connection of two turntables so you can digitize your vinyl collection in highest quality or record other external audio sources.

Even with two stereo channels routed to your external DJ mixer, the convenient front stereo input and output is perfectly tailored for DJs who wish to use TRAKTOR effects as send and return FX units on your mixer. In addition, they offer extra flexibility if you"re DJing with TRAKTOR's Sample Decks and Loop Recorder. 
Besides premium audio fidelity, low latency and ultimate connectivity, this interface also boasts many other advanced features specifically designed for club use:

The convenient status LEDs on the upper panel give instant visual feedback on input and output activity, so you know if your setup is hooked up and working correctly. Now it's also possible to run the TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 via its power supply only, as a "Direct Thru" unit. This means the soundcard is capable of passing through a signal from other equipment (turntables / CD players) without being connected to your computer - so switching between DJs or different setups is finally made simple - perfect for permanent club installations. 

The new Auto Detection makes connecting and disconnecting your audio interface a breeze - even while there are tracks playing in TRAKTOR. Assisted by the Setup Wizard with a drop-down menu of interfaces, just select your interface and setup (internal or external mixer). The Wizard assigns inputs and outputs for you. In the future, TRAKTOR detects when the same audio interface is connected via USB and automatically sets up your preferred routing again.

When disconnected, TRAKTOR automatically switches back to the internal computer soundcard. For further safety, TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 will revert to your user definable start-up configuration when USB is disconnected which is Direct Thru by default.
