    I just bought a Konekt to replace a M-Audio 1814 for my Mac.

    On my M-Audio interface I could select which channels to monitor. How do I do that on the konekt?

    My DJ setup is channel 3,4 out as monitor (headphones) channel 1,2 out as mains. I set my interface to send 3,4 out the headphone jack so I can preview tracks. I hope that's enough info.

      rbroy Hi, what is a konekt? You need at least a konnekt 24d for your Dj Setup.

      The main output has to be Ch. 3,4 (with fixed level range)

      The prelisten Headphone channel is always Ch. 1,2 (with volume level control)

      You can't do this with a konnekt 8.

      JAYU Hey guys,

      i just joined the group I'm very new to Traktor.

      I have a TC Konnekt 8. I noticed the answer of rbroy that you can't do this with konnekt 8,

      so i wanted to ask what can't you do?

      can i use traktor pro with tc konnekt 8?

      sounds quite silly though i connected the firewire. the only program that detected it was iTunes.

      programs that don't send the signal atm to my TC konnekt 8:



      (even) VLC player

      and i have this : if u go to preferences>audio setup>audio devices: theres only one option:

      hagen I am not sure if I understand you correctly, but you can use your Konnekt 8 with all applications that support CoreAudio (probably all DAW anyway). You need to choose the audio IO from inside those applications though.

    Hi, I know this is not the forum to write M350 about, but I can´t find this forum here

    I have a big problem. I bought 2 m350 units thinking about to use like plugin into my cubase 4. but I can´t I have updated the soft into windows and I have installed soft plugin into OSX Leopard later, but when I try to open this plugin (standalone) it tries to open but it can´t, and in cubase 4 I can´t see it though is installed into library/audio/plugins/vst.

    What happen?.. somebody can say to me where can I find the answer?

    thank you very much

    Hi, I used to own the TC 1210 stereo chorus/spacial expander. Unfortunatly I sold this a few years ago. I used the spacial expansion feature constantly. I have tried finding another one of these but it is difficult to say the least. Does TC make another product that has the spacial expansion feature? Thanks Marty

      snowleopard Hi, Sorry to say, but this was an entirely unique product with how it created and manipulated its effects processing. You may get similar results using the FireworX Fx unit in combination with and Aphex 204 exciter, I have both in my rack but no TC 1210 available to do configuration/audio tests. The uniqueness of the TC1210 is one on the reasons it still commands big bucks on the used market, when they sometimes appear. It would be truly nice to see a replicated "Special Anniversary" version of it (and not a digital synthesis), but I'm not holding my breath.

    I've just picked up this Gold Channel and I'm having a hard time getting this unit to work with my Pro Tools 002 Rack.

    Everything is fine at 24 bit 44.1 but if i try 24 bit 96k it just wont work.

    Any help would be appreciated.

      cgf Hi Paul,

      The GC can't do digital IO at 96kHz or 88.2kHz - only the low rates 32k-48k. Only internal processing like the limiter etc. operates at the double rate e.g. 96kHz. If you need to do projects at 96k in ProTools you need a sample rate converter between the GC and the Protools or perhaps the 002 has SRC on its input? Otherwise connect them on analog in stead.

    I just bought a Belkin Firewire 800 expresscard, and it's not working with my K24D. When I attach the K24D to the card, the blue light comes on, but the TC Near control panel won't open, and I can't choose the K24D in my audio apps.

    Someone please tell me I haven't just wasted $100

      chabbi I had exactly the same problem with TC Konnekt 48 and the Belkin Firewire 800 (but in pci, not pci express) ! Don't buy firewire belkin 800 cards with Tc Konnekt.... I have bought another : an excys EX-6440 and It works fine now !

      druffyw Hi,

      Have the same problem with my new Belkin Firewire 800 Express Card (part no: F5U514).

      TC Near appears fine under sound hardware devices

      The Firewire diode indicates a fine connection.

      TC Control Panel cannot detect the Konnekt 8 device !

      Also have a Speed Dragon (SDM) (close to a noname card) Express Firewire 400 card, which does work, but best with 256 sometimes even 512 Samples set in ASIO buffer.

      Overall setup:

      Dell Latitude D830 / Konnekt 8 / XP SP3 / Ableton Live 7

      This post mainly put in order for others with same configuration to see that they are not necessarily the only ones with the problem.

      Hope to be able to revert with positive news, as I will also start support tickets with both TC and Belkin.

      adamvert, I also hope that I didnt just waste 700 DKK (100 USD)

      rune I have actually tested the Belkin F5u505/514(express card) card and it worked flawlessly on my systems. Can you guys check if they are still using TI chipsets? The one I had was TI based, and worked fine.

      If you are using XP SP2 however, you need to install this for it to work:
      • September 9, 2008

      druffyw Hi Rune,

      I believe the F5U505 is a Firewire 400 Express Card. The F5U514 is a Firewire 800 card.

      I am not into how it works, but 800 should be compatible with 400, if you use a cable to support it ofcourse.

      I have confirmed with Belkin that the F5U514 does indeed use TI chipsets. (more specifically SN082AA2 and SN081BA3 if that means anything to you

      Thus I have a suspision that it may come down to the 400 vs 800. (Because it seems that windows have no problem seeing the card in Device Manager, while TC Control Panel claims that no devices can be detected).

      That my other "no name" FireWire 400 Express Card works (with some glithces) also supports that theory.

      Anyway I will dig further into the matter.

      Is there a place where Top Ten Express Cards for Live Audio streaming is listed ?


      Have a great day
      • September 9, 2008
    • adamvert
      rune As mentioned, I also tested the 514, and it worked just fine. XP SP2 had an issue with S800 speeds, and since there is not hotfix for SP3 we have to assume that this issue has been resolved, though I am not 100% sure.

      Have you tried a full reinstall? If not, try this:

      - Disconnect the Konnekt completely

      - Run the uninstaller from ADD/REMOVE programs

      - From the START MENU, choose RUN. Then type:

      regsvr32 -u c:\windows\system32\TCNearAsio.dll

      - Delete the following files





      - From the START menu, select RUN and type CMD. From the DOS prompt, type:

      set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1

      start devmgmt.msc

      - From the Device Manager select from the VIEW menu, Show Hidden Devices

      - Scroll down to Sound, Video and Game Controllers - remove all TC Near related items (use the delete key). If you have any other MIDI devices or old ASIO devices that are no longer in use its a good idea to delete them too.

      - Go to C:\Program Files\TC Electronic and delete the TCNEAR directory

      - Reboot

      - Install this software version: (installer 3657)

    I've got a Konnekt 24d and a Focusrite Liquid Mix connected on two different firewire busses on a iMac Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 Ghz with OSX 10.4.11
    Both the interfaces are updated with the latest firmware and drivers but I experience problems when they work together using their plugs. I notice that sometime I can't hear the audio when I activate Liquid's plugs even if the Konnekt driver is plugged correctly.
    Often I need to restart the OS

    Anyone encountered the same problem?

      yoorwell i have the same problem ,

      but is with UAD 1 card ,impossible run at the same time ,konnect and uad ,no sound or crakle ,drop out

      i have try all solution ,find on the web

      Patch XP firewire , latest drivers & firmware , ...but no way!

      bassman63 I'm using Konnekt24D with TC Near 2.0 and LiquidMix 2.0 (RC) very fine on my PC under Windows XP (SP2); ASUS P5K motherboard, C2D E6700 and one PCI IEEE1394 card which uses a VIA chip. Konnekt 24 is hooked to onboard 1394 port, Liquid Mix is to PCI card. SP2 max 1394 speed hotfix is applied and manually configured. (That is, I applied the patch before I add PCI 1394 I/F, and I had to modify registry value by hand upon PCI card installation.)

      My problems, not only with LiquidMix, are that

      1. if latency is set to rather longer value (2048samples @ 44.1kHz, etc.), Fabrik-C/-R as plugin tends to be very unstable

      2. sometimes no audio at all; on Cubase, I usually check "release ASIO when background"(?) check box, using alt-tab to switch back and forth between Cubase and other window, then start to re-produce audio.

      as number of LiquidMix plugins inserted become bigger, the latency tends to get longer and the Fabrik plugins tend to get more unstable. thus I start to avoid using Fabrik-R/-C from some point.

      btw, starting from TC NEAR 1.20 or 1.30, I can't invoke TC NEAR control panel from cubase' device option dialog. there might be some registry value problem? I usually launch TC NEAR CPL from Windows' quick menu.


      My DAW host application is Cubase 4.1; I had the same problem with Cubase 4.0.2.

    My main Volume knob no longer lowers the right channel volume of my main output (or head phones). It controls the left fine. But with the Volume all the way down the right channel is still about 60%. Hardware defect?

    • rhythminmind
      Fabrice Exactly the same problem here, I'm sending the unit back to TC, I suspect a hardware failure, though I'm on a mac and I also had ots of kernel panic and sound saturation...

      very disapointed by this product was expecting a lot ! oh well ,has someone here about the focusrite safire?
      • December 7, 2007
    • rhythminmind
      rhythminmind Well i think this is more complicated then it seems.. This unit was working fine for the few months i have had it. Then this issue popped up.. I installed the 2.00 beta driver for PC and it has mostly fixed itself.. when i bring the volume all the way down the right channel is about 1% up (if that makes sense). I think it always responded like that. As soon as i raise the vol up a hair it evens out. I figure that was just the response of an analog pot. But now that i have seen the other problem it seems it's a digital controlled volume. So we need some clarification from TC. Come on guys i wrote up a support ticket for this a few days ago. what is your take on this?
      • December 7, 2007
    • rhythminmind
      stereomax I'm experiencing a similar behaviour: when lowering the volume a lot (I have a rather small home studio but rather loud monitors) the right channel drops out while the left channel is still clearly audible. I thought of a problem with the analog volume pot also but reading your post and thinking of it (it's nor that difficult to built a stereo pot, isn't it?) it seems part of the serious software defects of this unit...
      • December 8, 2007
    • rhythminmind
      pg I just got the same problem.. And the irony here is that I'm using a REPLACEMENT unit that was given to replace my first unit with exactly the same problem of main volume knob!

      Unfortunately, most likely this replacement unit right now is not going to be covered by the warranty (it was given as replacement last winter).

      The symptoms are not as bad as last time (yet) - when the right channel was simply unbearably loud. This time the problem is that main volume knob just doesn't seem to decrease volume of the right channel to the state of complete silence.. It's unlikely that it's NOT a hardware issue....
      • December 16, 2007
    • rhythminmind
      rhythminmind I think i figured it out!

      With my unit it is a bug when using the ch 1/2 on rear inputs. whenever i activate these inputs from the front panel the right channel VOL Knob problem appears.. Can you guys test this out and let me know what happens in your setup..

    I have thoughts about purchasing the MD3. I have used it in demo mode and I like it. It´s not cheap, but with the three tools it is very powerfull I think....
    I work professionelly with music production and now I´m getting more and more productions where also mastering is done by me. I do compression outside the box with Neve Portico, but I want to have at least one top notch digital tool. I use Cubase 4.1 with Lynx Aurora converter.

    What do you guys think that know MD3 better? Is this a good choice? Give me your opinions! I had thoughts of Oxford limiter first, but now I more and more consider the MD3.

    Regards Lyra

    • Lyra
      Dom Hi there!I own the MD3 for almost 2 year and I can say it was totally worth the money. To be honest, it's maybe the only Powercore plugin I use along with the Reverbs and Character.

      I always use this for mastering even if it is rock, dance, metal, pop, even classical music. I especially use the MD3 section. However, you should know that the Brickwall Limiter is not intended to make things loud. You can do it but it won't have great results. You will need other tools for that. That said my mastering chain is as follows:

      Sonnox EQ>MD3>Inflator>Brickwall Limiter.

      MD3 increases the overall loudness but if you want a more "in your face" mastering then you will also need something like Inflator.

      Recently I bought Sonnox Limiter and all I can say is that, together with MD3 it really is GREAT and it becoming my limiter of choice. To be honest, I find myself using this over the Brickwall Limiter over and over again.

      If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask!
      • November 17, 2007
    • Lyra
      Lyra Thank you very much for valuble opinions. I actually allready have the Inflator. I will have to be able to make things resonable loud, question is if it´s enough with Inflator and Brickwall limiter. My first demand is sound quality, but I must be able to get my music at least over the lower comercial soundlevel.

      How do you like the EQ section?

      Regards Lyra
      • November 17, 2007

      5am The MD3 is the mother of all mastering plugs, only rivalled by the MD4 which of course is only availalbe for S6000 users.

      Bear in mind you get both the MD3 & the Brickwall Limiter 1 together.

      All the loudness features asociated with other limiters are done by the MD3 with the BW1 acting just as a tranparent catch all safety net which it does superbly.

      Everything about the MD3 is "top of the range" if you're serious about mastering then this is the only plug to go for! IMHO

      SunbreakMusic I have a few options for mastering, but I'm certainly glad I have MD3. It's an actual mastering plug, which means you have to learn to use it, but it sounds really nice and clean.

    PoCo Newbie here. I went back and attempted to install the Optional Plug-Ins that were in the Beta 2.5 installer. I had unchecked that option on the original install. None of the plugs seem to allow a trial. The Powercore Messenger app reports for all the optional plugs:

    "The trial version of this Plug-In can not run on PowerCore PCI and PowerCore Element"

    Does that mean with the Element I am stuck with the standard included plugs and can't run option plugs, or do I need to downloaded an earlier version of the installer? Thanks.

    Oh... on a Mac, BTW.

      DaveBourke Hi James,

      There's a pretty decent PoCo knowledgebase available here:

      Q: How come the 20 hours of demo time you get with each optional plug-in with PowerCore driver version 2.x does not work with PowerCore PCI/Element ?

      A: PowerCore driver version 2.0 uses the RAM on the PowerCore to manage the demo time, and the Compact/FireWire/Unplugged/PCI mkII have 4 times the amount of RAM of the PCI/Element. Basically, there is neither room in the RAM of the PCI/Element cards to handle the new features of PowerCore driver version 2.x, nor is it possible to expand the PCI/Element cards to hold more RAM."

      So you will be able to run optional plug-ins. You just won't be able to demo them.

      Kind regards.

    Hi all. I'm a new PoCo user. Tonight I was getting a feel for some of the included plugs with the card. I'm using Digital Perfomer 5.13 and Leopard. Any way, I was using the Chorus-Delay plug on a track insert as a straight delay and noticed that the delay repeats cut off if there is no actual audio being processed by the plug. So in order to hear the repeats I would have to splice actual silent audio to the tails of vocal phrases to avoid cutting off the repeats.

    Is this usual or is it just something related to AU, DP??? Thanks!
    0 3,321
    • JamesSteele
      trondned DP and Logic do that, I've heard. The idea is to save CPU as the plug-ins only use processing power when audio is pressent. Not a good idea for delays/reverbs, so yes, splice silent audio in where needed.
