Product Overview Made for easy stereo recording, the KOMPLETE AUDIO 2 is perfect for musicians, beat makers, or performers who want to capture ideas, produce, or play out with high-quality audio. Two combi-XLR/jack inputs make it easy to capture stereo sounds, bring in outboard gear like synths, and more. It also comes with all the software needed to bring ideas to life, including MASCHINE Essentials, Ableton Live Lite, MONARK, and top NI effects for polishing recordings.

Scan Pro Audio say..
"This unassuming interface is actually one of the best NAMM releases for us, as it's a great spec'ed interface for the money, using the latest generation 192K, 24 bit converters.

Native Instruments two new interfaces (KA1 and KA2) both have a stealthy look about them with the same black design ethos as the recent A-series keyboard range and Maschine Mk3 units, but under the hood, these these new boxes punch significantly above their weight, both on Mac and PC, but it really stands out from the crowd for Windows users.

The logic here is really simple, NI for years have been one of the few companies (the other notable one being RME) to write their own USB windows audio drivers, rather than them coming as a package from the company with the who manufactures the central processing chip inside the interface.
Having efficient drivers mean that you can use more instruments and plugins at lower buffer sizes and lower buffer sizes means lower latency, low buffer sizes use more processing power than high ones.
Low latency is of course important so you don't get a noticeable delay when playing in midi parts using a soft synth or playing through an amp simulator plugin such as guitar rig.
You would have to spend at least twice as much to get improved low latency performance on Windows with another type of interface.

Lucky Mac owners get this same performance using the drivers built into MAC OS, but the spec on this device really does still make it stand out as excellent value.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well.

However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.
