TC Electronic Desktop Konnekt 6 FireWire

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
With the high resolution meter, the big volume knob and the feature dedicated knobs, you have all you need for monitor control.

IMPACT Mic preamp and I/O
The IMPACT mic pre and the two instrument inputs give you an extraordinary recording quality. The output section has all you need to get the job done.

M40 Studio Reverb
Included is the M40 Studio Reverb, a simple to use, great sounding reverb powered by AlgoFlex.

Cubase LE4 Included
Bundled with Cubase LE4 – Desktop Konnekt has all the features you need to instantly record instruments and vocals into your Mac or PC.

The Desktop Konnekt 6 audio interface features a selected choice of monitor control right on hand.

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.

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.

Impact and I/O
When it comes to quality of the I/O section, Desktop Konnekt has no compromises and mathces 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.

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.

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.

"TC Electronics, thank you for the Konnekt 6."
Sound: The sound is better than on my EMU 1616M and that costs twice or three times as the konnekt 6. Clear and deep. No pops and totally noiseless. Feature: I went for quality, not quantity. I needed a single but very good input. The konnekt 6 has one. The software and is great and easy to use, the included reverb is very useful and a great addition to my effects library. Ease of Use: It's not a complex device, no need for audio routing. You can control most of the stuff you need on the device. Like the volume, yes, other interfaces have no dedicated volume control. Only software based. So yes, it's handy. You can control the reverb, and toggle the software panel with the buttons. Quality: No compromise. Sturdy, and compact. A great thing that the devices bottom is entirely covered with foam so it wont get scratched and wont scratch anything. Software side, the firewire connection is stable, the firmware update is flawless. Value: Buy it now. Manufacturer Support: No need. The Wow Factor: It's sexy. The big volume know has a light that get's stronger when you rotate it. Overall: Great price, great value, great quality. If you need a small device that will fit in your bag and need no external power source, this is your thing. It's also suitable for controlling your monitor speakers volume.
