FireWire audio interface with studio control system.

Studio Konnekt 48 offers a comprehensive array of professional features that make recording, mixing and monitoring a breeze. All essential recording tools are gathered in one box, including world-class DSP effects, a wealth of I/O options, speaker management and many other powerful tools that will take your recordings to the next level.

Extensive I/O
The extensive I/O section features four IMPACT II preamps. With eight line ins on the rear panel, the total amount of simultaneously streamable analog inputs is 12 as well as 12 analog outputs. Two outputs feature digitally controlled analog XLR connections for optimal connection with your main monitor speakers while the analog output section has 2 independent phones out.

The comprehensive digital I/O section features double ADAT 96 kHz SMUX, TOS, S/PDIF and Word Clock I/O and the digital part is powered by the second-to-none DICE Jet jitter elimination engine.


World-Class DSP and Speaker Management
Studio Konnekt 48 comes with nothing short of world-class DSP effects, including the Fabrik C Studio, an easy-to-use channel strip and mastering tool that offers 4-band EQ, multiband compression and limiting based on algorithms from TC's high-end System 6000. Also running on DSPs you'll find the Fabrik R Studio no compromise reverb based on TC's Reverb 4000 technology. It has a DSP powered 24/8 digital mixer with 48-bit double precision summing on all mix points. There is no compromise routing for all outputs and a wealth of insert points offering top-notch flexibility.

Not only does Studio Konnekt 48 offer support for surround speaker systems, it does way more than that. The speaker management section is based on technology from the famous Dynaudio Professional AIR™ Speaker Series, featuring individual speaker level and delay settings. The Bass Management feature gives you total control of your sub speaker and the speaker management offers instant control of up to 3 speaker sets.


Remote Control
As an option, you can add a cool, compact remote to your Studio Konnekt 48. With the Studio Kontrol remote at hand, you have access to all essential mixer parameters, including main level, mix levels, reverb level/decay time, speaker set selection, AUX sends and more. It has a built-in talkback microphone and a really cool light ring.

Anything else? Well, the cool factor of this remote is upped even further by the built-in guitar tuner.

  • * TC Electronics recommends running Konnekts on a dedicated FireWire bus. If your computer has one or more FireWire connections on the chassis they will typically run on the same FireWire bus. You may connect the Konnekt to one of these. If you intend to run more FireWire devices simultaneously, such as an external hard drive, TC recommends running this device on a separate bus. This would typically be on an installed FireWire PCI card. Note that such a FireWire PCI card typically has 3 ports but these also operate on a single bus.

Feature Rich: Excellent Quality

By FendersRBetter

Comments about TC Electronic STUDIO KONNEKT 48:

I love my Konnekt 48. I was looking for an interface with ADAT, wordclock, midi jacks, solid pre's and stable drivers. My primary DAW is Logic, running with Snow Leopard, and for a couple of months I have been considering Apogee Ensemble, RME FF800, Konnekt 48 and the new AVID releases to upgrade my intermittently noisy Tascam 1804.Sonically, the Konnekt is very transparent. Decent amount of gain. Quiet. Drivers solid in OSX. A couple AU plugs included that run $80-90 apiece retail. Remote is unbelievably useful for mic, instrument and main mix trim and output -- one of those things that you wonder how you lived without it.As a feature-rich device, expect to read some of the manual. Complex routing options, particularly given all the ADAT, SPDIF, line and pre inputs and corresponding outputs. Very rewarding when the digital mixer is setup properly, particularly with the work-flow shortcuts the remote provides. Customizable with several templates provided -- ie. show or hide channels, choose speaker set, route signals, etc.. Thorough and therefore a bit more challenging to understand; I had to read the manual, which is not always the case.I highly recommend the Konnekt 48 with remote. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Musician's Friend.

Engineer who knows!!!

Comments about TC Electronic STUDIO KONNEKT 48:

This is a great Interface!!! It was a bit tricky getting it to load right, but had NO problems on both my Mac Pro system and my Windows XP 2!!! The trick is to make sure both drivers and Firmware is updated and you load everything/restart computer/ then plug in your firewire cord and turn it on, it's that simple!!! Sound Quality is transparent and clear on all frequencies!!. I love the plugins that come with this, that alone is worth the price, they are very close to the Flagship 4000 and 6000 systems!!! The control panel is awesome and all routing is very easy to figure out!!! I love that this can accommodate newer 64bit systems!!! The only other interface that is close to the quality is the 'Echo' and it doesn't have all the functionality and bells n whistles that the konnect has, hey it comes from TC. The AD/DA converstion is actually very good and I like the feature that lets you recover from Digital sync 'slippage' and keeps the music playing! I highly recommend this, just do your 'homework' on the manuals and make sure all drivers are up to date. The Remote control is what sets this apart from all other interfaces, I love the fact that I can go in my vocal booth and still control everything at the console. This is a must buy for any serious high end mid level producer/studio!!!

I had to return it.

By Arkay

Comments about TC Electronic STUDIO KONNEKT 48:

I had one of these units for about 2 weeks. I could not get it to work with VISTA-64. No doubt it will work well with a MAC's native Firewire, but it kept crashing SONAR Producer 8.5 and Windows VISTA.The direct monitoring feature is what I purchased it for and that is great! (thus the features 5.0 rating) The quality is excellent (the 4.0 rating) but the DOCUMENTATION on HOW to connect it all up is really lacking and because, after a major crash, the TC Electonics configuration utility could never "find the device" again, overall I had to rate it average.TC Electronics tech support, however, is top notch and the user forum is robust.If you have a MAC, this is probabl the best mid-level audio/midi interface you can get, but if you have a PC, even one with native FIREWIRE built it, be cautis. I finally returned it to Musicians Friend for a refund. Don't know what I'm going to replace it with yet.Good Luck.
