Lewitt Connect 6 Review
The new Lewitt Connect 6 dual USB-C audio interface is available now and came out as a surprise from this brand. We didn’t expect to get an audio interface from them, since they are known for producing microphones, but we will be happy to look into it and give you some more insights about it.
To briefly go over the basic features of this audio interface, it has both analog and digital connectivity, it has onboard DSP with studio-grade preamps and this audio interface provides musicians and creators with versatility that is unmatched at this time.
With the Connect 6, you will be getting some virtual channels, a mixer, a loopback feature, and everything that needs to be found on an audio interface to produce some good music and expand your creativity.
These can be assessed from the Control Center software that is also included with the unit where you will be able to find some optimal settings using the auto setup feature that it has.
Connect 6 Design and Features
To start with the design side of this unit, it looks really unusual and it does not have the casual interface look as with its competitors. With the Connect 6 unit, there are various ledges and cut-off corners that are making this audio interface look different compared to the others. To be completely honest there is nothing too generic about this unit and you will be getting something really different.
On it, you will be able to find two separate USB-C ports where one for your computer connection and the other one for your mobile device. You can also use your phone or tablet and you can easily integrate this unit with your studio setup and not lose any of the audio quality.
For modern-era usages such as streaming on social media, you will be able to capture the audio directly to your phone. Also, there are a lot of connection features that are added for the sake of streaming and podcasting. The XLR Jack combo inputs are used mainly for connecting microphones and they are coming with two studio-ready preamps that will give you high-quality audio signals.
133dBV EIN and 72dB of gain are there for each preamp so you will not need to add additional signal boosters to elevate the sound. As I already mentioned, the Connect 6 software will be there to give you the best settings for the voice or instrument you are recording simply by activating the auto setup.
The 1/8 inch Aux input can be used to connect a stereo source if you have the need. Also, you will be able to send and receive audio files between your computer and your phone exits as per Lewitt Development Team. The Connect 6 application is also supported by both iOS and Android devices as well.

Connect 6 Sound
When it comes to sound, the connect 6 units will easily help you to create great-sounding audio signals and improve your music production for streaming/podcasting purposes. What we really think about this unit is the auto setup that is there to assist you if you do not know how to set up your gain or volumes before recording.
This is a really good feature when it comes to engineers that are just starting in the business and are complete beginners, and that will guide them to make the correct settings before recording.
With its DSP functionality, you will have low latency on the effects and also you will have zero latency on all the compressors, equalizers, expenders, and maximizers and you will have seamless routing, mixing, mastering, and monitoring as well.
All of the latest technologies are being used in this unit so you will not need to worry about that part. For the price that it comes, you will be getting a nice audio interface that will help you out with recording clear signals like vocals and instruments.
Connectivity and Routing
In terms of connectivity in routing, there are some interesting options that are designed for streaming and podcasting. With the building DSP, you will be able to mix the microphone input with any audio from your computer or mobile device or any other source that you will have at hand.
That means that you can capture the audio directly from the games or from any Zoom calls. That can be done with the computer-simulated virtual stereo channels that are in total of 3.
Also, you will be able to create two separate mixes – for example, one for monitoring and one directly to the streaming platform; and everything can be done through the Control Center software.
