For over 25 years, Native Instruments has been at the forefront of musical innovation. Our technology has revolutionized how people make music, opening new creative horizons for amateurs and professionals alike and turning bedrooms into studios across the world.

Our mission is to make music and audio creation more joyful and inspiring, and to provide everyone access to the worlds of music production, audio engineering, and DJing. Our portfolio contains industry leading products such as Komplete, Kontakt, Maschine, and Traktor.

In June 2023, iZotope, Brainworx, and Plugin Alliance became part of Native Instruments, further strengthening the breadth of our offerings, the expertise on our team, and the potential to offer our community a streamlined customer experience. With our powers combined, we have engineering capabilities across integrated software and hardware, AI and machine learning, cloud, and more.

Native Instruments was founded in Berlin in 1996. Today, it has offices in Berlin, Langenfeld, London, Paris, Boston, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Shenzhen.


Our sounds are everywhere. As one of the world's largest and most influential music technology companies, our hardware and software are used by more than 1.5 million creators every month, from award-winning artists to first-time producers. Our products have sparked new genres and enabled countless careers. Eight out of ten songs on the Billboard Top 100 feature NI sounds. From gaming soundtracks to the dancefloor or your favorite Netflix show, we’re always in your ears.

We're constantly evolving and expanding our offerings, with the aim of providing seamless experiences and accessible points of entry to music makers of all proficiency levels worldwide.


Our hardware, software, and digital services provide fully integrated solutions for musicians, producers, and DJs across all genres and experience levels.

KOMPLETE, the world's leading production suite, includes not only the sounds of a meticulously sampled Stradivari violin but also hard-hitting synths that have shaped modern techno. MASCHINE, an intuitive production and performance instrument, lets creators generate ideas on the fly, while TRAKTOR, our range of essential DJ equipment, makes four-deck mixing with pro precision possible. Each product is platform agnostic and compatible with the full spectrum of music creation and performance tools.

We're also advancing our vision for a more open creative ecosystem with KONTAKT, a powerful engine for creating and playing sampled sounds, and NKS, our integration technology that connects Native Instruments controllers to instruments and effects from hundreds of other leading developers. In addition to bringing a huge range of sounds, effects, loops, and samples into one streamlined workflow, these platforms are helping hundreds of small businesses thrive, from composers building orchestral sample libraries to boutique modular synth builders.

Our community of creators and audiophiles is one of the biggest in the world and provides music makers with the help, feedback, inspiration, and motivation they need to keep going. From workshops and tutorials to active online forums, we're committed to ensuring everyone feels supported at every step of their journey.
