TC Electronic Remote For Studio Konnekt 48Desktop remote control with integrated talkback microphone
With the optional Studio Kontrol remote, you have instant access to all important mixer parameters at all times. Use the encoder to control the selected function. The encoder controls two functions at a time - press it to shift between the two. The compact design of the remote makes it fit nicely beside the mouse in any computer based studio. At the upper section you find the input mix. This is where you control the level of the incoming signals - the mixer channels. This section is quite flexible, and from the control panel you decide which channels to control. Also the EFFECT button is flexible. By default it controls the reverb level and decay time, but it can also be assigned to control other parameters, for instance it can work as a midi controller.
A talkback microphone is also part of the remote. The talkback microphone is enabled by pressing the TALK button. When in talkback mode, you can use the encoder to adjust the talkback level. In order to communicate most effectively, channels are dimmed to a selectable level, and to further optimize the talkback signal, you can insert a Fabrik C Studio for EQing, de-essing or compressing the voice. The talkback signal is routed to the DAW like any other input of Studio Konnekt 48, so you can make recordings directly from it if you want to make audio notes in your project or if you want to use it with other applications, such as Skype. The remote also gives you direct access to the guitar tuner. When in tuner mode, the lightring will show note deviation, and by pressing the encorder, you can generate a reference tone for tuning acoustic guitars.
The connection between the Studio Kontrol remote and Studio Konnekt 48 is made by a single standard CAT5 cable. A neat solution that avoid lots of messy cables on your desk.
