      husker i also wonder if it will be vst 3 spec - I knwo steinberg have involved a few plug-in developers in the p[roduction of the vst 3 spec - If it was TC (and they have had previous links with steinbug) could they possible have included cubase acceptable sidechains in the plug's design ?

    All four loops are constantly sending signal, which is cool for running 3 way set-ups, but I would like to use some external analog delays and reverbs. With the loops set-up this way, the moment I turn on the loop, I hear the trails from the notes I played before the loop was engaged. Is there any way to change this option? It would really help me out.

    Thanks

      tore That's a very good point, but I'm afraid that it would require a hardware change as the entire loop section is 100% analog.



      We might be able turn off all the loops by cutting the signal right before the loop section - before it get's converted to analog, but then you wouldn't be able to use any of the loops at all.

      fatdog (I know this is an oldie)



      Maybe 2 remote triggered AB switches might work?



      i.e. Set up a bypass loop ( -AB=BA- ) for the delay, and use the relay switching on the G-system to turn on both switches at the same time the patch is activated.



      So the delay unit only gets input signal the instant that the patch is selected.

    The output section of Studio Konnekt 48 is rather extensive, and these presets show some of the possibilites of it.

    Default
    This is the factory default setting of the output section. use this to get back to your starting point without using the RESET TO DEFAULTS option.

    ADAT surround
    Sets up the output section to use the ADAT outputs for surround. Adat channels 1-6 are in use. If you have a 7.1 setup, simply add the last two speakers to the setting.

    ADAT surround with bass management
    Same as above with added bass management for the sub speaker.

    Analog surround
    Sets up the output section to use the analog outputs for surround. Channels 5-10 are used. If you have a 7.1 setup, simply add the last two speakers to the setting.

    Analog surround with bass management
    Same as above with added bass management for the sub speaker.

    AUX 1 submix to headphones
    Sends the AUX 1 submix to the headphones outs. The level is controlled from the front panel of SK48.

    AUX 1 submix to headphones remote controlled
    Sends the AUX 1 submix to the headphones outs, and makes sure that the level is controlled by the level knob on the remote control. Remember to run up the headphones level on the front panel for SK48.

    DAW direct
    Sets up the output section so that all DAW channels are routed directly to the equivalent outputs.

      how do you load those ? I only see the possibility of loading the .avt files



      thx

      thomas Hi Bruno



      Output presets are *.opf files, as you've probably seen.



      As opposed to the Totall Recall presets (*.avt), that recall ALL settings of the device, opf files only affect the output section. This means that you can set up the mixer as you like, while trying out a number of output setups.



      To load these, go to the SETUP page and press the FILE button.

      hednoize Hi Thomas



      I have a Konnekt 48 on order, and am trying to plan out my cabling -- I have an Alesis AI-4 ADAT to AES/EBU converter and JBL monitors with digital I/O. Is it possible to send two channels of digital out to my monitors (for example, through ADAT channels 7/8) and control that level to the speakers with the Konnekt 48 remote? I've read through through the Konnekt 48 manual and it looks like I probably can't, but I'm hoping I'm wrong.



      Thanks,

      thomas Fortunately, you are wrong



      Any of the outputs of SK48 can be remote controlled, any of the outputs can have a source that you select, meaning any mixer out (main, aux1, aux2, reverb sends), any signal coming from your DAW and any physical input.



      Since output control is done by the 56K DSP processor, and since such a processor has a limited amount of ins and outs, the maximum number of outputs that can be controlled at a time is 8. 8 is sufficient for 7.1 surround mixes, as you know. The maximum output channels of 8 is at the same time and not dependend on speaker set.



      This means that you can assign 8 output channels to one speaker set, 8 _other_ output channels to the second speaker set and some to the third.



      Since what you want is 2 simple channels, this is easily done.

    Total Recall presets are the ones that recall the entire setting of the product, including mixer settings, routing, output settings, bass management, Fabrik settings and more.

    Default This is the factory default. Use this to get back to scratch without reset to defaults.

    56bit summing mixer Studio Konnekt 48 has a 56bit mixer with 48 bit summing busses, and you can use this to mix your project, if you don't like the sound of your music application mixer. You can even use the Fabrik C Studio, both as a channel EQ/compressor/limiter or at the ouptut bus for finalizing and you can use the Fabrik R Studio reverb for - well, reverb.
    Setup your DAW to send each of the channels to the SK48 mixer.
    Use the AUX1 bus to send the return signal FROM SK48. The return signal is on audio channel 31+32 (aux1 rtn 1 and 2).

    Analog mixer
    Sets up Studio Konnekt 48 to mainly have analog input channels.

    Analog mixer with Fabriks on inputs.avt
    Same as above. Fabrik C Studio is inserted on the four mic inputs, adding nice compression to the signal.

    Digital mixer
    Sets up Studio Konnekt 48 with digital input channels.

    Enhanced output
    Adds a Fabrik C Studio to the output of the mixer, allowing to use Fabrik C Studio as a mastering tool. Beware that the core engine of Fabrik C Studio is based on algorithms from our hi-end mastering tools, and has the quality that ensures a perfect result.

    Remote controlled headphones
    Using the default setting, the remote control does not control the output level of the headphones, it only controls the output to your monitor speakers.
    Using this preset, the remote control does also control the level of the headphones.

    The new version 2.00 version of the Konnekt Software includes a new version of the driver, version 80, that handles lots of the drop out issues that users have been having up until now.

    Beside that, the Control Panel has been updated for all Konnekt Interfaces, introducing a new communication layer between the control panel and the driver.

    The Fabrik plug-ins and the Integrator plug-in have been updated for all Konnekt Interfaces, dealing with a number streaming issues, loading of projects and more.

    Integrator is now part of all products, so no matter what Konnekt interface you have, you also have the Integrator plug-in, allowing you to integrate external hardware.

    New features have been added for Studio Konnekt users, giving a more transparent UI on the SETUP page, adding a MASTER output section to the MIXER and adding a new REMOTE page, from where you can enable MIDI control from the remote and choose what to control from the EFFECT button.

      Dude Thanks for setting up the forum. I think it's a great way for TC to enable communication with the users. I'm downloading the release candidate as I type, and will try it out. My 24D been working fine on my PC but have not been reliable on my laptop (ThinkPad).



      Cheers!

      KingWindom Looking forward to trying the new drivers. I have had a Love-Hate relationship with the 24D (Love the hardware, Hate the drivers) hope this version is the key.

      Good to see TC has a forum now!

    This DPC Spike Checker Tool addresses one of the most common issues that PC users have with their audio workstations.

    The so called DPC (Deferred Procedure Calls) spikes are generated by low level system drivers that for one or the other reason makes the system wait. These spikes typically result in audio drop outs, and users experience that raising the buffer size in the TC Near Control Panel does not solve the drop out issues.

    In the TC Near control panel, the buffer size setting addresses the so called user mode drop outs. These are the drop outs that are generated because the CPU load is too big, for example if you have too many plug-ins running at the same time, or if background Windows tasks drain the CPU power.

    In the new version 2.00 of the TC Near software, the driver (version 3.0.0.80) introduces a method to handle DPC spikes.
    It does it in two ways:
    1) When DPC spikes occur, they are handled very efficiently. With previous versions of the driver, users could experience that the Audio player, iTunes for instance, would stop playback completely when a spike occured. With this version spikes will still create a drop out, but chances that audio will continue to play is much better.

    2) We are introducing a new setting in the control panel, that is called "DPC safety buffers". The DPC safety buffers prevent spikes from happening.
    The feature has four options:
    Normal, which is the one you should choose if you don't experience drop outs.
    Level 1, which is the softest level adds a small amount of buffers to prevent small DPC spikes
    Level 2 is more agressive, adding more buffers
    Level 3 is the most agressive, adding big buffers to the system

    The DPC spike checker tool is able to measure the DPC spikes, and gives you a recomandation of what option to choose.

    The downside of this is that larger buffers also adds to the system latency. Fortunately, all TC konnekt interfaces have advanced direct monitoring, which means that you can monitor through the Konnekt without thinking of system latency.

    Nevertheless it is always good to find out which driver that is causing the DPC spikes. We have found, that typically drivers that cause DPC spikes are related to networking, especially weireless network cards seem to create problems. But it could be any driver.

    The DPC spike checker tool is not able to show you exactly which driver that causes the DPC spikes, so the procedure is to try to disable the drivers one by one and use the tool to see if the spikes are gone.

    ===

    Installation.

    The DPC Spike Checker Tool comes in a zip file as a simple exe file. Unpack the file and place it where you want.

    You don't have to install the Konnekt software package to use this tool, it runs fine without. It is part of the version 2.00 software, so if you have already installed this, you can find the tool in your Windows START menu, in the All Programs/TC Electronic/TC Near - Konnekt folder.

    This means that even if you are not Konnekt user, you can use this tool to check your system.

    The DPC spike checker tool does not install any additional files on your computer, so if you want to get rid of it, simply delete it.

      lukeeyeball under vista when I start the program it states I need to logged in with administrative privileges even though I am?



      Am I correct in understanding the new version 2.00 of the TC Near software is not out yet?

      lukeeyeball one thing im a bit confused about is when you set safety buffers to level 1 does that add latency to what ever you then select in the buffer size drop down?



      so if I select level one with 128 samples that would add buffers to that setting? (how much)

      also why is it that other audio interfaces/drivers don't suffer from DPCs the same way? or do they?



      I'm using time code vinyl with this interface so low latency is critical to me.
