TC Electronic Namm news

TC Electronic is now shipping Konnekt Live, the audio interface especially designed for live performers. The same high quality audio converters and effects from TC Electronic’s Konnekt 24D are geared towards live performance in a road worthy package.

Konnekt Live features extensive output routing that enhances the audio passing through via its built-in DSP and optimized analog output section. It comes bundled with Ableton Live Lite 6 TC Electronic Edition and two DSP effects: Fabrik R Live and Fabrik C Live. Konnekt Live retails at $795 MSRP. Konnekt Live ships with ResFilter, a plug-in that offers state-of-the-art filtering effects. Throw in resonance, 6, 12 and 24 dB slopes for even more stunning sounds. Its inter-communication-bus facilitates controlling and tweaking multiple plug-ins and parameters from one plug-in, cross-fading between two plug-ins, etc. Konnekt Live also features a 3-band master compressor built on latest dynamics processing algorithms – the perfect Finalizer for any venue. Its unique MINT (Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology) user interface allows users to respond intuitively to what is heard.

Konnekt’s road-ready casing is designed for life on the road. Fitting right under a laptop, its heavy rubber frame has a solid grip on tilted or slippery surfaces. Konnekt Live comes with a turntable cable and an onboard RIAA plug-in. The selection of RIAA filters gives studio-quality vinyl ripping to mix in with original music or mash-ups. Konnekt Live’s MIDI I/O allows an external MIDI controller to be plugged right into the loop without a USB MIDI interface.

Furthermore TC Electronic announces the worldwide availability of Digital Konnekt x32, an all-in-one digital patchbay, format converter and FireWire audio interface, for integrating digital outboard effects units and keyboards with modern digital audio workstation based studios. Digital Konnekt x32 carries a retail price of $1745 MSRP.

As a stand-alone format converter and patchbay, Digital Konnekt x32 includes 8 channels of AES/EBU, 8 channels of S/PDIF and TOS, 8 channels of ADAT (up to 96 kHz SMUX) and Word Clock I/O. Any input format can be converted into either of the other formats and aligned to any sample rate ranging from 44.1 to 192 kHz. Digital Konnekt x32 allows sample rate conversion on up to four separate stereo inputs at once.

Konnekt Digital x32 functions as a computer interface with two FireWire connections streaming 16 channels of audio to and from the computer. The audio interface has a ¼” balanced stereo analog output and headphones for monitoring and is compatible with other TC Electronic audio interfaces

Accessed like a standard VST/AU plug-in from within a DAW, the included Integrator plug-in enables hardware processor effects to be used as an insert or an effect send on any track or on the master output of the host application. Integrator also controls routing, levels and latency compensation of external effects processing equipment attached to Digital Konnekt x32, allowing seamless (and painless) integration of hardware effects processors.

Extra features on the digital patchbay and interface include complete front panel patchbay configuration, total scene recall, JET(TM) Jitter Elimination Technology and a front panel lock to prevent unintended button pushes.
