CRIMSON
USB Audio-Interface and Monitor Controller - Professional sound at an incredible price

With or without DAW
The Crimson is designed to operate with your Digital Audio Workstation. But you can also do a lot with it as stand-alone device: plug in an instrument and play. Connect a microphone and sing along.

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

A new concept for a new value
At SPL we design audio equipment in all price ranges – except cheap gear. Therefore, each SPL unit provides professional quality. The Crimson goes ahead now 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 break through common price limits.

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