To call Konnekt Live an intriguing interface for live performers is merely scratching the surface. Whereas most audio interfaces in the live laptop performance scene are designed for recording purposes, TC Helicon's interface raises the bar and offers clear-cut playback advantages to live laptop performers.
Imagine a master compressor, a Finalizer that puts you in full control of your output. Add to that Konnekt Live's extensive output routing that enhances the audio passing through via its optimized analog output section. Bundled with Ableton Live software and a suite of built-in DSP effects, you won't find a more versatile interface for your live performance.
Typically, real-time, high-quality output processing puts heavy demands on your CPU. Not so with the Konnekt Live interface. Since all DSP processing takes place inside Konnekt Live, all you have to worry about is being creative--your computer is left with plenty of headroom for other tasks.
At its most basic, the sound quality of TC Electronic Konnekt Live takes your performance to the next level. Whether you run pre-recorded tracks, effects, plug-ins or live inputs through it, Konnekt Live easily outperforms other audio interfaces, compact mixers, or budget rack units on the scene. You can think of this interface as a high quality yet compact mixer that integrates perfectly with balanced or unbalanced systems, big PA rigs and active speaker systems alike.
DSP Effects Inside
Konnekt Live houses a suite of advanced effects--including DSP--under its hood that were designed with your toughest performance requirements in mind. The effects quality so far only known from recording studios is now within reach for your live setup.
3-band master compressor built on latest dynamics processing algorithms--the perfect Finalizer for any venue. Its unique MINT (Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology) user interface allows you to respond intuitively to what you hear, taking the bore right out of tweaking tons of parameters and settings.
Choose between 9 classic reverb algorithms for breathtaking effects and vocal reverb on loops, pre-recorded tracks, live vocals, instruments or keyboards.
Lo-cut/hi-cut filter that offers you ultra fat filtering effects. Throw in resonance, 6, 12 and 24 dB slopes for even more stunning sounds. Its inter-communication bus facilitates controlling and tweaking multiple plug-ins and parameters from one plug-in, cross-fading between two plug-ins etc.
Its road-ready casing is designed for the rigors of live performing and life on the road. The audio interface fits right under your laptop and its heavy rubber frame serves as a solid grip on tilted or slippery surfaces allowing this baby to take a serious amount of gravitational punishment before it gives in to the laws of physics.
If you crave that old school touch, stay tuned: TC Electronic Konnekt Live comes with a turntable cable and an onboard RIAA plug-in. The selection of RIAA filters gives you studio quality vinyl ripping to mix in with your own music or mash-ups. Konnekt Live's MIDI I/O allows you to plug an external MIDI controller right into the loop without a USB MIDI interface. Assign the front panel light ring as a MIDI controller for tweaking optional parameters if you like to loop in a more tangible grip of things.
