“The SPL Marc One Monitoring and Recording Controller is a beast, providing high-end quality whether you’re listening back or putting down tracks. It offers three monitoring modes, a 32-bit AD/DA converter and a smart, user-friendly design.”
At Pro Sound News, you’ll find a review about our Monitoring and Recording Controller SPL Marc One. If the device could also convince Fela Davis?
“It was impressing us before we even turned it on. First of all, its heavy-duty metal frame body and actual weight give you a hint of the quality you’re about to hear. All knobs and toggle switches are weighted, supporting the impression of a high-end product.”
“The volume knob… it’s ultimately the reason I love this controller. It provides lots of ways to tweak your outputs that we will get into later. You’ll use this knob the most, and the even volume response sounds amazing.”
“The second toggle switch gives you the option to listen in mono, stereo or channel swap, which reverses the stereo image so you can hear everything that’s going on with your mix.”
“The USB connection will connect to your DAW for superb studio monitor playback at very high resolutions – for example, DSD4 and DSD256 (11.2 MHz) are supported.“
“The amount of depth from the headphone amp to our studio headphones… opened my ears to new things in our mixes.“
“Over the course of our review period, we found the amazing resolution and high-quality build combined perfectly in use as we toggled seamlessly between studio monitors and headphones to listen to mixes. Used as a monitor controller, SPL got the layout perfect for muscle-memory mixing, with the monitor toggle switch and volume knob ideally located for quick adjustments while listening. When you consider that it’s also an interface for recording, able to record high-resolution audio from 10 Hz to 200 kHz, the… price tag is worth it. The SPL Marc One is now a staple in our studio and workflow.“
