For more than 20 years, Native Instruments has been at the heart of musical innovation. Our audio technology has revolutionized how people make music, opening new creative horizons for amateurs and professionals alike and giving rise to thriving creative communities.

Today, it is part of Soundwide. Soundwide’s mission is to make music and audio creation a more joyful and inspiring experience for creators everywhere by helping them to find, and stay in, their creative flow.

Stemming from the union of Native Instruments and iZotope, and including Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and Sound Stacks, Soundwide’s collective vision is to inspire and empower creators to express themselves and reimagine the future of sound. Offering a world-class audio and music creation ecosystem, the brands under Soundwide have broad engineering capabilities across integrated software and hardware, AI and machine learning, cloud, and more. Currently they make up more than 600 staff, with offices across EMEA, NA and APAC regions, and a user base of over 10M.


Our sounds are everywhere. As one of the world's largest and most influential music technology companies, our hardware and software is 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 Native 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 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 along every step of their journey.


We believe in the power of music creation. With more and more people getting interested in music making, we're working to lower barriers and provide easy access to the building blocks of audio production. With our competitively priced products and open platform strategy, we’re turning bedrooms into studios across the world.
