Our Verdict

At a reasonable price, a highly tiny, sleek 2×2 interface. In terms of build performance and quality, the NI pedigree shows through.

The Komplete Audio 2’s performance was as smooth as its appearance, and while the features are limited, it accomplishes what it sets out to do brilliantly. It feels sturdy enough to withstand regular usage and is plainly small enough to fit in a bag with other odds and ends.

Overall, the Komplete Audio 2 is both elegant and affordable.
