Show full description »

FireWire Audio Interface | Monitor Control

Desktop Konnekt offers the same high quality recording features as the rest of the Konnekt line of interfaces, but in a desktop design that allows you to focus on performance rather than technology. Bundled with Cubase LE4 - Desktop Konnekt has all the features you need to instantly record instruments and vocals into your Mac or PC.

  • Monitor Control - The Desktop Konnekt 6 audio interface features a selected choice of monitor control right on hand.
    • Direct monitor MIX
      Use the direct monitor knob to control the direct monitor level directly from the top panel of Desktop Konnekt. Together with the DIM switch and the MONO switch you have all the monitor functions you need at hand.
    • Scenes - With Scene select you can easy access three independent scenes or "setups". The three default presets are for Microphone and guitar, two guitars/basses, a stereo line signal.
    • Control panel - The control panel gives you full control over your monitor mix, including the M40 Studio Reverb.
    • Big volume knob - The volume control is the knob that you use all the time. Therefore it is great that it sits right where you want it: always within reach. With a volume control independent from the computer - between the computer and the active speakers - you can always turn down the volume, no matter what your computer does.
    • High resolution meter - The high resolution gives you precise information about levels. With clear level indication, you can always monitor the level of the input signal and if you're near clipping. You can also choose to use the meter for mastering purposes.
    • Reverb for tracking - For monitoring convenience, the reverb is available as part of your monitor mix. You can control the reverb level directly from the top panel of Desktop Konnekt, and you can set reverb parameters using the control panel on the computer.
  • IMPACT™ Mic preamp and I/O - When it comes to quality of the I/O section, Desktop Konnekt has no compromises and matches its big brothers in the Konnekt range.
    • Headphones - The headphone output has its own powerful amplifier and a separate converter, which makes you able to assign separate mix signal independent from what you hear in your monitor speakers.
    • Balanced outputs - The 2 balanced outputs match any powered or non powered speaker monitors.
    • IMPACT™ mic pre - TC is renowned for its mic preamps, notably ranking among the finest mic preamps on the market. Desktop Konnekt comes with an IMPACT™ preamp, making the recording of a vocal or instrument pure joy.
    • Hi-Z guitar / line inputs - Equipped with the same instrument inputs used in TC’s high-end guitar processors, Desktop Konnekt offers studio quality guitar recordings. These two hi impedance inputs will surely match the quality of your guitar, maintaining the tone and sound on the recording.
  • M40 Studio Reverb - Included is the M40 Studio Reverb, a simple to use, great sounding reverb that is powered by AlgoFlex™ - a new high definition TC technology that enables hardware quality and predictability to be ported to native software.
    • Part of monitor signal path - It is available for tracking to increase the recording comfort without tying the effect to the final take, operated by the control panel and the reverb knob on the top panel of Desktop Konnekt.
    • VST and Audio Units - Beside being part of the monitor mix, the M40 Studio Reverb is also available as a natively running VST/AU plug-in, allowing you to use it as part of your recording session in your PC or Mac.
    • Hall, Room and Plate - M40 Studio Reverb features three main reverb algorithms. The Hall algorithm emulates a large hall with a broad and warm reverb. Room emulates a small and well-furnished room with an intimate ambience and going back in time the Plate reverb algorithm emulates the large metallic plates which were used to create reverbs before digital signal processing was commonplace.

TC Electronic Desktop Konnekt 6 Reviews


tc electronic konnekt 6

Well although this device has clear audio signal, and a nice preamp and instant monitor control, I would have to say that it does have its downsides.
I\'m new to firewire so am unsure if this is device specific but it is prone to interference from networking ports / devices / internet access. I am gonna have to now dual boot my pc because of it so I can use one for internet and listening to music and the other for music. This is because of the interference this device suffers. If I go into my daw it often stops working and I have to keep reinitialising the asio driver which my daw doesn\'t do automatically. If you are going to buy this I would say only use it on a dedicated recording computer and make sure that you have the option to disable lan / onboard sound and so on in your bios. I have to wipe my windows also but this is because of the sticky realtek driver my laptop came with also. other than that it is still a nice interface

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
