t.c. electronic desktop konnekt 6

29 Jul

 

a quick review of a nice little firewire audio interface and stereo monitor control the t.c. electronic desktop konnekt 6. really good for what is does for the money. i really like the audio quality of the mic input, headphone, monitor outputs and audio interface itself. its well made for the price-range. the audio level meter is a nice feature and is reasonable good. over all a good piece of gear for audio and video editors, even for podcasters I’d might say. So my setup for recording tutorials and stuff like that is the Rode NTG1 connected the the desktop konnekt 6 and its good and clean sounding 48V phantom powered mic (pre-amp) input.

one think about the firewire connection … yes its is Firewire 400 (which is common for a audio interface …. or at least was) now, I know firewire ports are kinda a rare thing on computers these days… but i have to say in compassion to USB its a much more solid connection and i don’t mean that in terms of hardware itself, just the data stream is better. with USB its more likely that you run in to odd issues like odd background noises and stuff (since USB was initially invented to connect hardware like a keyboard or a computer mouse) …. so keep that in mind

  1. How do you like using the iRigpre as a preamp? Do you notice a significant difference?

      Its pretty good and usable as u can hear … pretty clean sound, pretty small …only thing on the 60D the headphone monitoring is a bit tricky so even tho’ the headphone signal is distorted the recorded signal is fine!
