Native Instruments Traktor Audio 6 & 10
Native Instruments has announced Traktor Audio 6 and 10, the second generation of its DJ audio interface range.
With 6 respectively 10 analog inputs and outputs, 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 routing purposes, according to the company.
With their 24bit/96Khz Cirrus Logic converters and +12 dBu output volume, the Audio 6 and Audio 10 is designed to maintain DJ-specific audio characteristics, with signal quality further enhanced through improved electrical engineering, according to the company. The LED indicators also allow for monitoring of the signal chain in low-light club environments. Another feature of the Audio 6 and Audio 10 is the new "Direct Thru" bypass function, which is designed to be toggled individually per channel remotely from the computer.
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, a sync function as well as looping and effect functions.
Pricing & Availability
Traktor Audio 6 and 10 will be available April 2011 for a suggested retail price of $279/249 EUR and $449/399 EUR respectively.
