    Hi, I'm totally new to this matter: a friend gave me a Konnekt 8 TC Electronic to help me plug in my guitar into an old MacBook pro and trying to record some music.

    My question is about starting it all because I have a pre amplified guitar, a Bond Electra Guide with a phantom power supply which have just a jack in and a jack out to the amplifier.

    I don't know if the term "phantom" refer to the phantom as the known method of providing power to microphones (in ths case the pickups of my guitar), from the picture you can say nothing about it.

    I wonder if I can simply plug in the jack into the True High-Z on the front of the Konnekt 8 or not.

    The secondary question is that I have a MAcBook early 2008 with installed an El Capitan system (10.11.6) and I wonder if I have to create some partition with an older osx system to make it work it all (or some old windows system).

    Could someone please help me?

    Thanks in advance.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Impossibili, thank you for your post, before moving forward and configuring your interface with any guitar you must confirm that your Konnekt 8 is correctly configured with your Mac. For that please be aware that you must installed the TC NEAR software accessible via the link below:
      For this process to be successful you must confirm that the OSX running on your Mac is not a 64-bit version otherwise the TC NEAR software will not work.
      As the Konnekt 8 is a legacy unit we have stopped releasing any resources for this unit including a 64-bit version for the TC NEAR software.
      Only when you have concluded the steps mentioned above you will be able to have your Konnekt 8 fully configured and you will be able to use the interface.

    Hi there

    Is there a way to run an old Konnekt 48 interface with a new MBPro 16" Monterey?

      PedroRodrigues Hi Moser641324 unfortunately there is not, as this unit was discontinued some time ago and the unit will only interface with legacy OSX and Win. Thank you

    Subject: Technical problem with the DN9696 multitrack recorder.

    At first I tried to turn it on, suddenly it turned off after like 5 seconds. Tried 3 to 4 times it did the same thing. Then the front panel buttons stopped functioning, the front screen no longer displays anything yet the lights of the meeters are lit. Monitor connected with a VGA cable has no signal. I decided to open it, found the CPU fan displaced. Thus, I decided to contact the Technical support to figure out the problem. I've been using it for more than 12 years! I hope you might be able to help.

    I think my just died after using it since 2008 

    It was my trusty companion, such a good interface. They don't make em like that anymore... 

    I tried to use a novation soundcard i had lying around Novation hub or something much newer but used it for djing... 

    It could not handle my projects... When opening Ableton Live. 

    I left my konnekt a few days still nothing. 

    I lights up now but it's as if the firmware doesn't boot up... 

    The vid was is how it used to go previously and then it would sometimes take like 10min... 

    but now it doesn't do anything... 

    So Does this use a cmos battery that might be needed to be replaced??? If any1 knows? 

    Anothet question is Does any1 recommend a similar soundcard... not sure if Usb soundcards do work for my setup... 

    I actually don't have the money to buy a new one and certainly ain't gonna buy the Apollo or in that price range... 

    I was curious about the Arturia one but I don't know... 

    I just myself could not find a soundcard with this many outputs and all the other features on the back.

    Hope someone can help me out thnx

      PedroRodrigues Hi yann_ ,thank you for your post, unfortunately the TC-KONNEKT 48 has been discontinued for some time, so we stopped releasing any resources for the most recent OS's. If you wish to keep using your TC-KONNEKT 48 you must do it exclusively using legacy OS's otherwise the interface will not operate. Than you

    ich wundere mich das es nach wie vor nicht die möglichkeit gibt, die aufgenommenen Samples direkt umzubenennen. Wenn ich etwas einspreche und das 4-5 mal, weil mir die vorherigen Aufnahmen nicht passen, muss ich jedes mal mühsam die richtige Datei aus dem Ordner suchen und dann umbenen.

    Es wäre echt hilfreich und würde einges an Zeit sparen, das endgültige Audio, welches nun auf einer der Samplertaste liegt direkt mit einem "Rechtsklick->Umbenen" auf das Audio neu zu benennen, sodass ich den Rest den ich nicht mehr haben will einfach nur noch aus dem Ordener löschen kann ohne ausversehen die Datei, welche ich behalten möchte mit zu entfernen.

    Ist dies bezüglich ein Softwareupdate in Aussicht?

    Hello. I just bought an ADA8200 to connect to a FCA1616 firepower to expand the inputs. I have finally managed to synchronize everything, the ADA inputs are recognized by the computer and I can record my synthesizers in cubase, but the sound does not reach my monitors. Apparently everything is fine. The inputs of the FCA sound good and the input and output led lights up, but the inputs of the ADA do not give any signal in the FCA, they reach the computer and I can record them but I cannot hear them while playing. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thank you

    Hello. I just bought an ADA8200 and I want to connect it to my fca1616 to have more inputs. The problem is that when I connect the fca in ADAT mode, what is connected to it stops being heard. The ADA can't get it to sound even though the FCA driver recognizes it. Can someone explain to me how I have to connect it and what I am doing wrong. Thank you.
