Messe: New TC interface...

by Chris Randall

Man, and I just bought a FireBox, too. This is the Konnekt 24D, a new interface from TC. Aside from the rather ostentatious use of the letter "K" this seems to be a pretty sweet box. It has the Fabrik C channel strip and Fabrik R 'verb poured in DSP right in the box, and you can use 'em standalone which is kind of nifty. 2 line ins, 2 mic pres, 4 line outs, plus ADAT ports.

Another nice feature is that you can network up to three together for extra I/O. I can't find how many Fabrik C instances you can run per unit, but I'm guessing the answer is "one," which is kind of a bitch. I imagine they feel you'll use it on the input. I'm not too hip on printing my DSP dynamics and E.Q. as most of the fun of having a DAW is having a non-volatile workspace.

Anyways, this looks pretty sweet. 470 Eu for the Konnekt 24D, and 320 Eu for the Konnekt 8, which is obviously less I/O and no DSP on-board.

Dag, thats a nice looking box. Myself I just bought the new MOTU Ultralite thingy (its awesome, no ADAT though), so im in the same boat with you on the 'Doh! tip. I think weve entered the golden age of the portable bus powered audio interface.

On the Konnekt 24D you can run:

2 instances of Fabrik C -- each tied to input channels 1 and 2.

1 instance of Fabrik R -- configured as a send/return effect,
with each own return channel in the mixer,
which allows it to be used with several channels.

The Konnekt 8 lacks the built-in effects, removes 2 additional Analog outputs, removes optical(TOS/ADAT) in/outs, but adds 1 stereo auxilary input*

* (not able to determine what existing jack 'becomes' this aux input,
once the 'aux in' button (near the top headphone jack) is pressed.

Konnekt 24D to include Assimilator.

Taken from the following url - link []">link []

"TC Electronic is pleased to announce that its recently-introduced audio interface, Konnekt 24D, will now also include Assimilator Konnekt in addition to Fabric R reverb and Fabric C channel strip. Assimilator Konnekt is an extremely powerful equalization tool that "learns" the frequency curve of one piece of audio so it can be applied to another audio file. Units are expected to ship in August 2006..."
