We first brought you news of it from the Frankfurt MESSE back in March and now TC Electronic has announced that its long anticipated audio interface, Konnekt 24D
, is finally available.
Here are the very latest details taken directly from the TC press release:
The 14 in 14 out (2 mic/inst/line, 2 line inputs and 4 line outputs, 8 ADAT and 2 S/PDIF (optical and coaxial) inputs and outputs) Konnekt 24D audio interface integrates TCâ€™s world-renowned DSP effects in a state-of-the art design developed for recording and performing musicians seeking the highest possible sound quality from analog input through built-in real-time DSP effects to the hard disk. In addition to front panel control of internal mixer parameters, Konnekt 24D features two front panel inputs that combine TCâ€™s new IMPACTâ„¢ (Integrated Mic Preamp Circuit Technology) mic preamps with true Hi-Z input circuits optimized for guitar. Designed for use with active monitors and bundled with Cubase LE software, TCâ€™s new audio interface allows users to start recording right out of the box.
Intuitive design and TC quality effects - Konnekt 24Dâ€™s intuitive user interface design allows users to focus on making music, not on tweaking, and with the Fabrik C channel strip and Fabrik R reverb, Konnekt 24D has the most essential music production tools covered â€“ in renowned TC quality.
Both Fabrik effects feature TC MINT technology facilitating complex audio adjustments simply by moving the MINT icons around the screen. The effects are designed to work even when the unit is used in stand-alone mode, a feature that allows users to easily plug, play and monitor without needing to power up the computer.
In addition, Konnekt 24D includes Assimilator Konnekt - an extremely powerful equalization tool that â€œlearnsâ€� the frequency curve of one piece of audio so it can be applied to another audio file.
This native fingerprint equalizer, originally developed for PowerCore, has been customized for Konnekt 24D and is ideal for analyzing and copying EQ curves of individual instruments, voices or reference mixes. It truly excels when applied to align the frequency response of different tracks recorded at different times compiled to appear on the same album. Assimilator Konnekt is available for free download from:
