radiobomb's review"quality"

TC Electronic Studio Konnekt 48
I bought it for the I/O's and desktop remote, & on-board DSP. Use it to interface DAW to console bi-directionally. [soundtracs cm4400 32track]. & sometimes plug straight in [bass/mics/guitar/harware synths]. Good analog+ADAT connectivity via FW400. PC running w7,i7 cpu, ddr3 6gb, 3x1T Hd. Reaper, Cubase . [tc asio driver]. Used in a recording studio for 4 years.


stable drivers. slightly dicey install with previous versions, but sorted on latest version, always stable once installed though. Run 128 latency with up to 120 tracks & about 200 vst's before needing to change to 256 [unless running heavy duty vst's which chokes the cpu earlier]. Use REAPER now, and Cubase previously. Driver mature, and no further updates needed.


There are all functions on the TC settings menu on screen, and mixer pages, remote assignment etc...
On the unit are the trims for the 4 front-panel xlr's, their pad, and +48v accross them on a switch.


good sound with precise dynamics and good stereo spread, spaces sound real. No hiss. good pre's. had creamware scope xtc, and a yamaha 01x, and a protools AM3 prior to this card. May one day upgrade to the ssl AX madi stuff, but very happy with this card.

musiclol's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" At this price, buy !!!!"

TC Electronic Studio Konnekt 48
4 preamps, the arch complete connectivity, the overall quality (I have a Konnekt 24D for years) and most importantly ....
The bomb!
I use a Macbook pro 2012 under Mountain Lion / Logic 9 mainly I bought there is only a little more than a month.


Easy installation, super stable for the moment.

I saved up to 12 tracks simultaneously using among others a OctaMic in adat.
Incidentally, the 4 preamp TC are the same level as sacrosanct holy RME ...

Latency is excellent and muscular with my recent computer (i7 SSD / 16GB of ram ...)

I record guitars and basses, synths analos, my piano, and voice most often.
I use many virtual instruments as well. No problem, on the contrary, the card is forgotten, and even better, its clever design and comprehensive often brings very useful solutions.


Management software of the card is perfectly clear and comprehensive routine.
I insist on the remote, unique, it's fun !!!!


I have used dozens of cards in his or colleagues in various studios or structures or I "committed" to music (M audio, RME, Apogee, Prismsound Orpheus ...). This TC certainly at the end of the career level of the best for sure.
I do not trade it especially for a Fireface 800, which is rumored sounds better (we made several blind tests with several different professionals, no one has ever heard of difference to the ear) but has not the tenth functions and comfort of this TC (volume output, 2 independent headphone outputs, killing Plugs, REMOTE GENIALE) !!!!!
A € 499 is just amazing !!!! a must!

elokami's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad but fragile"

TC Electronic Studio Konnekt 48
Motivated by the many and varied inputs and outputs.
Use: voice recording and mixing

Computer era of the PC Core 2 Duo 9900, 3GB RAM, DDR 1to

I used it alone and then with different preamps, with Culture Vulture particular loop.


stable drivers, maj REGULAR

I use cubase

5ms latency was lower in 96khz

24 recording tracks simultaneous


especially not connect the machine before installing the driver on pc, if you are brown!
ditto with many product TC PowerCore example ...

works perfectly on Mac and PC, manual unnecessary.

the virtual mixing desk to request that we look over some time even when (input output routing, etc. .. daw several fairly complete)


I use it for my purchase in 2009, preamp too fragile, returned twice in sav and not working properly when I speak ..
what I love most, the Converto are nice, the remote control.

value for money 700euros current nine, the fact ca.

I would do it no choice, because of the fragilié product, a headphone jack worked, albeit more recent days.

I bought this card at the age of the shortage of RME.

this card is very good to mix very simple, with a control surface Assistant.
If the use of the card must be at its maximum input / output I recommend putting a bit more and go on the RME Fireface 800 bcp more reliable (and it sounds better)
