One of the biggest names in computer music, Native Instruments started out with ground breaking software and VST plugins such as Kontakt and Reaktor. These instruments have gone on to be used by more musicians, composers and producers than we could possibly name, although Daft Punk using your stuff is always a good sign. Through Komplete they gave us an affordable software package that could fit every requirement of modern music production, from mix plugins to samplers and synths. Further to this they offer revolutionary hardware like Maschine that frees users up from the computer screen, finally allowing you to play and interact with software rather than merely controlling it.
This same philosophy drives the development of their Traktor DJ equipment. Offering the software free with most of their hardware and putting faders, pads and knobs at your fingertips to remix, apply effects and cue. The S4 has become a near industry standard DJ controller, spawning the affordable S2 as well as the all new Stems compatible D2, S5 and S8. If you prefer a modular setup then NI also have a range of smaller controllers to suit
