Use With or without DAW

Crimson is designed to operate with your Digital Audio Workstation. Crimson can operate without a USB connection too. Everything is fully functional except for USB, MIDI and SPDIF in/out. You can use Crimson as your studio preamplifer to monitor your audio sources and to rehearse and play or sing along with the DAW

Mix your own monitor signal with playback or guide tracks from any source – including your smartphone. What you are playing is not bad? Turn on the DAW and record it.

iPad Recording

Crimson has built-in USB Audio Class 2 drivers for hot-plugging and recording with an iPad. Do note that the original Apple Camera Adapter is required.

A new concept with phenomenal value

At SPL we design audio equipment in all price ranges – except cheap gear. Therefore each SPL unit provides professional quality. The Crimson leaps forward and sets a new sound quality benchmark in its price range: We have re-designed proven circuitries and created a new, fully integrated design. Together with new production methods we are able to break through usual price limits.

So with the Crimson interface and controller you have a boutique standard recording and monitoring device at a fraction of the price we used to know from traditional engineering and manufacturing.
