Native Instruments today announced that its audio interface AUDIO KONTROL 1 has been honored with the annual iF product design award 2007 in the category “Consumer Electronics/ Telecommunications”. The iF product design award is one the top three design awards worldwide, and is awarded by an international jury in consideration of a comprehensive catalog of criteria, including design quality, workmanship, functionality and ergonomics.
