Description:

The SPL Crimson combines a USB interface with high-quality preamps and a separate, fully-featured monitor controller. You can play and play back, record and convert, control and listen – all with one single device (ever heard of the Crimson King? :-)

So, essentially all you need for a truly professional recording setup now is the Crimson and your favorite DAW.

Features:

  • 30 I/O channels (10 recording channels and 20 playback channels)
  • +/- 18V operational voltage for professional levels up to +24dB
  • Two discrete, Class A, +/-30V high-voltage, boutique mic-preamplifiers
  • Two Hi-Z instrument preamplifiers
  • Two separate headphone amps, individually controllable
  • Connect and control two stereo speaker sets
  • Monitor mix function for playback and recording signals
  • MIDI input and output via two DIN sockets
  • USB 2.0, S/P-DIF input and output
  • 24Bit/192kHz converter
  • Made in Germany
