    I use Konnekt 48 with windows XP SP2. I have several problems.
    If someone experience the same problem, tell me.

    1st:
    The Konnekt 48 won't boot with or without firewire connection. Only the blue light around the power buttom appear but no "TC logo" at boot and no connection with computer. It's a intermitent problem and the unit boot after the second guess.

    2: The Konnekt 48 loose is connectivity with the computer over time via firewire. I can see on TCnear that the connection for DAW is grey out.

    I have the latest software (2.1) and my computer is running fine

    Thank's for your collaboration

      Reladosimi Thank's for your collaboration. The unit boot, but not the first time. When it cold, it apears that the 1st boot, the unit power(blue light around power button) but no TC logo and no connectivity with comouter. I have also remove netork connection in my computer but the unit loose is connection by intermitence. Thank's

      mixscape ok but are you sure you have disable all the network connection into the DEVICE MANAGER (its the better way !). If you have an anti-virus you must remove it. After that, dont forget to turn off all into the security center (firewall,automatic update,virus protection)



      Another thing than could help you.. Turn on your konnekt then use the DPC SPIKE CHECKER TOOL (start menu/all program/tc electronics/spike checker). See what it say to you in windows . You can test it into your sequencer too. Sometimes it can help.

      mixscape: I regularly forget to switch-off the network connection & kill the anti-virus software (Kaspersky) on my notebook. Doesn't skip a beat for me...

      Of course, sometimes I forget that I'm in power-saving mode & begin having kittens when the SK48 is stuttering & stammering. It's not until I do a re-boot (wondering why it's taking so long) that I realise that I've got the notebook set to something other than High Performance.



      Oh, one other interesting thing I've seen. Whilst running in High Performance on Battery (not plugged-in), with the SK48, Steinberg Key, MOTU MIDI Express XT & Lexicon MX400 plugged into the FW/USB's, after about 10 seconds the notebook crashes... Remove one USB & it doesn't occur.

    I have been going great guns with the new computer until a today.

    Here are some points:

    1: 24/7C is causing Cubase to become unusable everytime I insert it into a track. It doesn't matter if it's a mono or stereo instance or if it's on a normal or group channel track. The program becomes 'Not Responding" in teh system and I have to envoke Task Manager to quit the application. Is there a recognized bug with 24/7C that does this?

    2: PowercoreCL does not insert into a track when placed in an insert slot.
    3: Filtroid comes up DISABLED
    4: Sidechainer doesn't work and has gabage code flickering in the channel gadget.
    5: DynamicEQ does exactly what 24/7C does (Cubase goes NOT RESPONDING)

    The DSP usage on the Powercorex8 is just under 4 in the project I am working on - I tested the system with 6 DSPs running just to make sure it wsn't the '4 DSP bug" people talk about.

    Cheers

      bossa Looking at my Administration error logs I see that Resfilter Konnekt.dll has been causing this crash.. after removing it from the project the problems mentioned in the previous post went away.. but no more Res Filter.. damn!



      I thought some other brand of plugin would be to blame and looked at all the other ones I had .. even uninstalling them. I did not expect aTCE plugin to be the cause of these problems.

    I sent this same question to TC support over 2 weeks ago and have received no reply.
    The pedal board I have below is powered by a Gator G-Bus-8 power brick bolted underneath. It has 1700ma total. My existing pedals only use about 1000ma and I've some spare 9v jacks. A Nova Delay is being shipped to me now and I'll replace the DD-6 I have for the Nova Delay.

    1) Can I run it safely and efficiently on 9v without causing any prob's.
    2) How many milliamps does it use when maxed ?

    thanks

      Newysurfer Well this is certainly a great forum.

      posted this thread over a week ago - got 87 views and not a single reply.



      I did get an email from Nicholas at TC Support though. Just to help out Nova Delay owners here's what he said



      Response (Nicholas) 10/24/2008 07:30 AM

      Dear Peter



      There's no problem using Nova Delay with a 9v supply. The pedal needs a certain amount of mA (300mA t run and around 400mA when starting up) so it won't work with every 9v supply out there. But no matter what - you won't damage the pedal using a 9v supply and there's is no loss in audio quality... unless:



      1. You're running a very hot signal into the pedal: This could fx be a guitar through a 20-30dB boost or distortion pedal into Nova Delay or having the pedal in the effect loop of your amp IF the effect loop is a Line level (+4dB) loop.



      2. You have the pedal in a line level loop and your power amp needs a very hot signal to work properly.



      The explanation is actually rather simple: When you lower the voltage you're also lowering the maximum input and output of the pedal. In other words: with a 9v supply Nova Delay won't be able to handle as hot/loud an input signal before it starts clipping. Similarly it won't be able to send out as hot an output signal as with a 12v supply.



      The way to check whether you're within the gain range of the pedal with a 9v supply is pretty simple: For the input part simply listen if the pedal is making ugly digital distortion when playing at loud levels... you'll know if that happens!



      The output part is a little trickier: If you have the pedal in fx a line level loop which is a very hot signal, the pedal won't be able send out the same amount of gain again on the output. The result is that you'll notice that your sound will be lower (if you're palying with distortion it may sound as if the pedal is "eating" the overdrive) compared to if you removed pedal from the signal chain entirely. That is why fx a Boss Digital Delay sound like cr*p in an effects loop... It's gain range isn't wide enough to handle such a hot signal.



      To sum it up: No matter what you can't damage the pedal using a 9v supply. And if you don't notice digital distortion OR a level drop when the pedal is in the signal chain, there's absolutely no problem using it with 9v supply.



      best regards



      I've since been running the ND on 9v with no issues

      kumakae Hey cool, thanks for the info! I've been casually looking for a power supply for my pedals (two nova units and a couple of 9V pedals), this makes the search a bit easier as i don't have to find one that has 9V and 12V outputs.

      drwiddly I've been using my Nova Drive with its own power supply but the rest of my board is powered from a Diago 3000ma supply (so plenty of spare milliamps!). I used to use an 18v Dunlop pedal and bought one of Diago's special leads which uses a digital circuit to increase the normal 9v output to 18v. I'm wondering if this set up might power the Nova Drive? there's obviously plenty of spare current but would the higher voltage do any damage?
      • December 28, 2010
    • Newysurfer
      Mel "uses a digital circuit to increase the normal 9v output to 18v". Be careful, the Nova Drive is a real power pig... make sure it can supply 400ma. That's 10 to 20 times what a typical distortion pedal draws. And yes, 18V might damage it, that's a long way from 12V... only way to find out for sure is try it. Any volunteers? I didn't think so You could take an 18V source and regulated it down to 12 with a very simple circuit.
      • December 29, 2010
    • Newysurfer
      drwiddly Pretty much my thinking.



      There's plenty of current available as the board only houses my Nova System, a wah, a MIDI controller and a tuner as well as the Nova Drive but it's the voltage I'm concerned about. I might try using the 9v supply without the special cable, and see how that works. I don't think that can do any harm but it may not sound very good and/or have poor S/N ratio.



      I think I was hoping someone with better knowledge of electronics than me would post a reply saying "the Nova Drive can tolerate loads of excess voltage and provided the current capacity is at least 380ma, it will be fine"

    Good Morning and thanks for your kind attention.

    I purchased the G Switch with the hope of preserving the switches on my Nova System, but to tell you the truth, I am a novice with processors etc.

    and having struggled to understand the manual for Nova System, which assumes too much about the readers abilities, I find that I am not able to manaage the G Switch.

    for Example the 3 button switch replaces 5 buttons and to do so, the G Switch requires not only counting taps as you work live... which as a novice is wierd, but after a week with the device, I still can figure out how many times I need to tape switches 1,2 &3 to get presets up or down, or from bank to preset or preset to bank.

    I do understand that one needs to think in advance, but if you're on stage, the pedal is less than articulate and definetly not forgiving.

    Lastly, I have the Nova System and the soft/firmware is version1.10... might this be an issue with the Nova, or have you foound the switch to respond they way I am describing???? BTW pilot error is not new to me.. =) so feel free to provide coaching.

    thanks,

    D

      Virtuoso It took me about a week to figure it out. The manual is no help at all!



      Press and hold either button 1 or button 3. The red LED number on the Nova will flash and you can then press button 1 to decrease the bank number or button 3 to increase it. When you reach the bank number you want, press and hold button 1 or 3 again. The display will say '>>> READY <<<'. You can then press buttons 1, 2 or 3 to switch patches within that bank.

      re Hi!



      I'm thinking of buying a G-Switch for the Nova System and was wondering if anybody could help me with my question.



      How "fast" is the change of presets with the G-Switch?



      When you change presets on the Nova System you get a certain delay and that's a little inconvenient for me, coming from using only analog single effects! Is this the same with the G-Switch? Is it better? Or worse?



      It may be a stupid question, but I'd be really glad if someone could help. Thank you very much!



      Cheers, Andy
      • October 29, 2008
    • drop2
      Virtuoso It's no faster than the unit. The advantage is that you can switch quickly between the 3 patches in a single bank while also being able to switch individual effects on and off. Changing banks is still annoyingly slow though.



      There is a setting which carries the delay/reverb sound over when you switch patches, so you don't get delay tails cut off.
      • October 29, 2008
    • drop2
      drop2 I just got my unit a monthagao, and ambeginning to find a comfort level, as I too moved from pedals.

      So stay with it and you will enjoy... some times the time delay is a matter of thinking ahead and if you are changing during tunes, take the thing to rehearsals so you get used to it.



      QAUESTION: WHAT IS THE SETTING OR COMMAND TO PORT THE REVERB OR DELAY TO A NEW SETTING?

    I'm pretty disheartened here.

    I purchased a StudioKonnekt48 less than a month ago for use in my home studio. I was too busy to even unbox it when I first received it so it's seen only maybe 2 weeks of light use in my studio (maybe 1-2 hours per day) primarily using a studio mic and my midi keyboard.

    Tonight while using it, all audio completely died and all lights on the unit turned off except for the blue ring around the power button.

    I attempted to power it up again multiple times and removed all the cables from it but no matter what I did all that happened was the blue light around the power button came on, no other lights, no sound, no lights on the control unit, not recognized by my computer.

    It appears totally dead.

    I guess will be sending it in for warranty/repair or replacement...but after only a couple of weeks of use I'm concerned. Is this normal? Are others having problems?

    How long will I be without the unit? I just had my studio setup and without the konnekt48 it's all useless.

      rune It is hard to say exactly what failed on the unit without examining it, but it is definitely not a common failure.

      Contact a service center in the region where you bought the unit, or contact your dealer for a solution:

      RJB mmm, I also bought a konnekt 48 2 weeks back. My first unit had the same startup problem, so the shop replaced it. Now I have another unit which also does it, but a bit less often.

      I have my SK48 connekted through sp/dif to my amp and when I turn on the SK48 and the logo doesn't show it gives a high pitched tone. When I turn it off and turn it on again it works strait away. Both units had firmware 1.05 when I first booted up.



      Rune, is this a hardware fault or is it something that can be solved with a firmware update?

    I also have a godin multiac and that sounds great with the G Natural, but I really want to use my Taylor when I gig.

    When I plug the XLR cable straight into the mixer, the sound is unbelievable but I really want to use the G Natural in between!

      I assume that this is an ES-equipped Taylor, and the cable to which you refer is a TRS-XLR cable that comes with the unit.



      You have three choices.

      1) Use a regular instrument cable and patch the guitar into the instrument input on the G-Nat. I personnally don't like the sound from this one. The ES is really MUCH happier when treated like a mic of sorts.

      2) Use a conversion transformer like this one to convert the low-Z balanced signal off the supplied cable to a hi-Z unbalanced signal that is a better match for the G-Nat's instrument input - which is designed for the Hi-Z output of a traditional guitar pickup. I have used this method with a fair amount of success.



      http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062443&cp=&sr=1&kw=balanced+transformer&origkw=balanced+transformer&parentPage=search



      3) Jack the supplied cable into the MIC input and then set the internal mic routing to be the same as the instrument routing. (You'll need to toy with the mic gain level knob and perhaps the pad button to get the levels right. You will also need to select mic input on the mic/aux input button)

      0) Put fresh batteries (or battery, depending on the ES you have) in the guitar.



      1) You need to do the following from the "Levels" Menu

      - Set "Levels->Mic-Pre" to "Guitar"



      2) On the back of the unit - you need to set the following:

      - Make sure the "Mic In Select" button is pressed IN

      - Make sure the "+48V" button is NOT pressed in.



      3) Set the Guitar's output volume to at least the detente position. (The volume knob on the ES has a little spot where the knob "sticks" if you want it there. That is the "Detente" position.



      4) Then on the back of the unit, you will need to set input gain

      a) Start with the "-20db" button NOT pressed in.

      b) Adjust the "mic level" knob until you get a good string signal that distorts a little.

      c) Then back the "mic level" knob off about 1/4 turn so the signal does not distort, even when playing your loudest.



      If you can't get the signal loud enough to distort, turn up the volume on the guitar another 1/4 turn and try step 4 again.



      If the signal is too hot (distorts) with the mic level knob most of the way down, press the "-20db" button in and try steps 4b and 4c again.

    Plugged it in, played with it some time, and it sounds fantastic.
    Really easy to use, although I have to say that I'm not using preset, but old fashion dual effects with the Footswitch as bypass switch.

      Zorpho Yeah, I must agree. I've had mine for a few years now and it's the best multi-effects unit I've ever had and I've been playing since 1968. A lot of the multis have their own presets and usually every one of the presets has some sort of overdrive or distortion effect in it which means you've gotta go through each preset and remove it as well as re-configure the other effects that are pre-set. The G-sharp has all I need at my fingertips and if I want to get lost in a maze of pre-sets I've got the foot switch that I can use to chase them around and find the right one just in time for the end of the set.

      sglw11060138 This may be a bit of a pain but all you need to do is get a MPU-401 compatible sound card for your computer and install it. You must use win XP. You'll also need the MPU-401 cables. Both the card and the cable can be purchased for a lot less that a Midi Uno on Ebay. Once you hook up the cables to the G-Major the update software will recognize the card and you'll be able to run the update with no problem. You can also use the same setup if you want to do a midi dump and upload other peoples presets using the RealMajor editor. This is a great unit and well worth the extra $20 bucks for the card and cable. If you can't figure out how to install the sound card, let me know and I'll walk you through it.



      Oh and by the way, Tech support is excellent!

      kimo_sabi YESSSSS, I've did it.......!!!! After 2 weeks of trying, I've update the unit to 1.27. In the first 2 weeks Ive used a Midisport 1x1 with USB. I've tried it with a Toshiba Laptop with Windows XP on a USB port, and I've tried the a Desktop, running on XP with the USB port. Did everything what people suggested on any other forum and even the capacitor option, but nothing worked. What have I done. I used an old midi/game port to midi cable. one with 15-pins male connector. The one you used back in the days to connect a joystick to your computer and on the other end of the cable 2 midi in- and out cable. I took an old MPU-401 sound card and put it in the desktop. XP will find the right drivers and then did the update procedure.

    As stated in a separate post I am currently doing a W/D/W setup with two heads. After reading in the Manual further I notice a dual amp setup on page 27. It looks as if with this method if I chose to not do W/D/W and setup this way the G System would control which amp was on and what effects are sent.

    Can somebody confirm that if I have one head in the insert loop and one head in loop 4 that via presets I can say which loop is active thus meaning which head is active? I am not sure this is the way to go since I would lose my current stereo setup with the heads and W/D/W setup, but sure seems pretty flexible and easier overall setup possibly.

      Yes...you can also run stereo...switching between the preamps on each head so one or the other is active on a given patch, but then still make use of BOTH power amp sections and cabinets so you can run true stereo output of the FX.

      EROCK77 ok... so?? what about using the g to run dual mono, say an ada preamp and a triaxis one left one right to the g and out to a 290 to 2 cabs.. ??? been lookin and lookin but i dont see how it can be done.. loop 4 is before the insert loop so it will run into that.. laird help dude!!

      That would require either

      A) The insert loop and some other loop to be parallel or

      B) return on the insert loop, with a stereo INPUT to the second DSP



      Neither of these is the case. You can't run parallel, independent preamp tones through the G.

      This has been beat to death in earlier discussions in this forum.

      bucketbot Search for some of my posts on this as I tried both a WDW & also a similar setup to what you propose.

      I discovered that the best way to achieve this was to use a looper through the insert loop such as the Lehle D Loop which is midi controllable & enables you to switch silently and without lag between the 2 preamp sections. I found that doing it the other way using Loop 4 for the second preamp & using the G to simultaneously turn off one loop & the other on produced some unwanted affects such as momentary volume jumps etc.

      CodyCass1 I hate the way the Search function is on here now. I try to use it, but since it got updated and changed, it's a lot harder to find stuff. But I might try messing with WDW now that I've got a new amp. Id love to be able to run 2 heads in perfect stereo without having to use the power amp of my main amp to power both heads. So I get a true El34 and true 6l6 tone blended. I tried the whole Loop and Insert thing awhile back and it made my amps sound really weird. Maybe I was doing it wrong, who knows. It's been about a year.
