Today, LEWITT Audio announced a new product in their range, Connect 6.
CONNECT 6 is a Dual USB-C audio interface with game-changing flexibility for creators and musicians. It features extensive analog and digital connectivity, full iOS/Android device integration, and excellent sounding studio-grade preamps. The onboard DSP (Digital signal processor) offers virtual channels, a mixer, loopback, and individual routing managed via the included Control Center software.
Incredibly noise-free preamps and convenient auto setup.
CONNECT 6 provides crystal-clear sound with any microphone. Simply plug it into any of the two studio grade preamps via the XLR/ Jack combo inputs. Both preamps come with an industry leading low noise performance of -133dBV EIN and 72 dB of gain (!!!) which is more than enough to use any microphone without needing expensive signal boosters. Activate Auto Setup and let CONNECT 6 find the optimal settings for your voice or instrument automatically.
DSP effects on board
Enjoy professional sound right from the start by adding DSP-powered effects to your voice. Refine your sound using an expander, compressor, or 4-band EQ without introducing latency to your monitoring or using precious CPU power from your computer.
Your smartphone or tablet can be part of your audio setup
CONNECT 6 lets you fully integrate your mobile device (or a 2nd computer) into your audio setup. Connect your mobile device via the second USB-C port for lossless digital audio transfer while conveniently charging it at the same time.
This unique feature allows you to send high-class audio to mobile applications or record audio from your mobile device onto your computer. You can also connect a 2nd computer instead of a mobile device to digitally send and receive audio between two computers. CONNECT 6 is Apple MFI certified for iPhone/iPad and works perfectly with Android devices.
Mixing, routing, and loopback made easy.
Creating a custom audio setup and presets is super easy with the included Control Center software. Combine the microphone signal with other audio sources from your computer, mobile device, or other inputs. With three virtual stereo channels, a loopback channel to capture audio from your browser, game, or Zoom call. You can create two completely independent audio mixes, Mix A and B.
For example, Mix A could be used for personal monitoring while Mix B is being sent wherever you need it, be it your DAW, a streaming software, or a virtual meeting. You can even send your mix to applications on your mobile device. Both mix outputs feature a one-knob Maximizer to ensure that your mixes always have the optimal loudness level.
Two independent headphone outputs – rare but always welcome
The two independent headphone amps bring out the best in any headphone. They are powerful enough to drive high impedance studio headphones. Both can be fed with individual mixes and support zero-latency monitoring even with the DSP-powered effects engaged.
