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

So now this is the (for now final) part 3:
I just want to show you some basic ideas in terms of audio editing. This its just a quick overview, you might have your own style and way to do things. Also your application might have different Tools. But this is just a “reminder” so to say of what might be essential to get good edits. Now, i’m usually a bit better, faster & more precise at this kind of editing but i really just wanted you to show some “hints” so you can start to get stuff done or might think about your workflow and stuff.
If you have any question, let me know … I’ll make sure to get back to you or even make another tutorial to answer your question.

So this is the fist part of three. Its the basics about how i set up my edit-session in Adobe Audition. I talk a lil bit about Levels, Normalization and why its not helping that much if you have not the best recordings (like with a lot of spikes and plopp-sounds and whatnot) or all kinds of level changes and stuff. Its not that exciting… 😉
I promise the 2nd part will be a bit more practical but longer as well….
stay tuned for part 2 …. you can find it here!
