Watch the video now for a rapid-fire reveal of all the new gear, sounds, and services coming your way.

Whatever your genre, no matter your level of experience, music making is all about expressing your ideas. That’s what makes it fun – but it’s also the hardest part. So our biggest release ever is all about giving you everything you need to create freely, quickly, and easily. With nine new products and three major updates to our online services, we’re giving you more ways than ever to get started with music-making, to take your tracks to the next level, or to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

The releases kick off from September 18 with MASCHINE MIKRO Mk3 – the first in new family of entry-level hardware that also includes the next-generation TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 and three versions of the all-new KOMPLETE KONTROL A-Series. There’s also a Mk2 update for our flagship S88 keyboard, and the biggest KOMPLETE update ever brings KONTAKT 6 and a host of Expansions to the world’s leading production suite.

Owners of KOMPLETE 12 and above will also receive MASSIVE X as a free download on its release in February 2019. This more extreme, more expressive reimagining of our legendary wavetable synth adds a next-generation sound engine, state-of-the-art components, and all-new effects to the mix.

And for DJs, the new S2 is only the beginning. The long-awaited TRAKTOR PRO 3 opens a new chapter in the 17-year history of our flagship DJ software, powering the S2, as well as the next-generation KONTROL S4 and its revolutionary Haptic Drive™ – versatile motorized jog wheels that zap cue points, loop markers, and more direct to your fingertips as you perform.

There’s also some big news beyond the world of KOMPLETE, MASCHINE, and exits beta today, with three different subscriptions a free trial now available in 22 countries; Metapop relaunches with new features and a more intuitive, accessible experience; and boutique sample shop The Loop Loft – now a part of the NI family – gets a major redesign.
