Connecting a tc electronics konnekt 6 as a sound card for a gig, help!

Hey guys - just need a bit of guidance here! I've my laptop connected to this fella via firewire. So, when it comes to connecting it to FOH, what do I need, and what else goes where?

Outputs go to inputs. Nothing special about it. It's probably in the interface's manual.

Your FOH guy should know what to do with it. DIs will probably be involved for long runs.

Yeah, but I just want to make sure I bring the right cables incase there's anything missing! So feel free to dumb down your answers...

Ask your FOH guy. Tell him what you're bringing and ask him what you should bring along to make his life easier.

He calls the shots.

I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but aren't there only 2 outputs and a headphone out?

Depends on what you're doing with your laptop and the konnect 6, but generally: If your Left Output sends a mono signal, then pack a couple 1/4" instrument cables and a DI box. Usually it's the case that Left Input = Mono Output on a lot of devices. If you need to go stereo out for some reason, then just double up on everything.

Since you only have monitor outputs, it may be the case that you have a stereo balanced out and require 1/4" TRS cables.

If you need more info on basic connections, it should be in your manual along with diagrams showing you different ways to setup connections. If you don't have a manual, you can always DL a pdf from the website.
