The Studio Konnekt 48 from tc electronic is a fully featured, FireWire based digital audio interface, that not only comes with a generous helping of inputs and outputs, but also includes a comprehensive software mixer with extensive high-end DSP, and a speaker management section.

Both analog and digital I/O is available, including on the analog input side 4 IMPACT II microphone preamps, as well as 8 line inputs. Analog output features 10 line outs as well as 2 separate headphone feeds. Digital I/O is represented by the 3 major formats, and also includes Wordclock I/O.

The 24/8 digital mixer has unrestricted routing to the outputs along with multiple insert points. All mix points process the digital information using 48-bit double precision summing. A comprehensive list of DSP includes EQ, dynamics and reverb.

The included remote control provides access to all the essential mixer parameters, including main level, mix levels, reverb level/decay time, speaker set selection, auxiliary sends and more. It also features a dedicated built-in talkback microphone, and a multi-function light-ring for providing visual feedback of settings.
