“With the Crimson … SPL developed a device, which practically meets all the needs of a recording studio within one single unit. Constantly updating and revising their products, SPL launched the 3rd version of the Crimson Monitor Controller this year and we have put the unit to the acid test.”
In the current edition (December/January 1/18) of German Recording Magazin, you will find a review about the SPL Crimson 3.
“Anyone who ever planned to set up a recording studio knows that besides a proper Digital Audio Workstation you also need a whole lot of other equipment like a microphone preamp, an AD/DA converter, a MIDI Interface, or a headphone amplifier.”
“Development goal of the Crimson was to bundle all of these units into a small but high-quality device. This ambitious goal was achieved by SPL and with the new version 3 SPL is even going one step further.”
“A new feature of the Crimson 3 is SPL’s proprietary Phonitor Matrix, which provides fatique-free working and a spatial sound while mixing on headphones.”
“Also new … the Talkback function.”
“The sound quality of the microphone and instrument preamp is perfect, clean and transparent.”
“The Phonitor Matrix definitely has a very pleasant effect when mixing single tracks on headphones. It sounded spatially open, as if you were mixing on speakers.”
“The Crimson 3 is the ideal control center for home recording or smaller project studios.”
“Every component of the unit operates at the highest quality stage and absolutely latency-free.”
“We highly recommend it!”
