SPL's flagship audio interface offers a bit of everything, with 16 inputs, MIDI interface, powerful monitoring options and clear, precise sound. A proper all-rounder.
Following the success of the Crimson 1 and 2 models, SPL have gone further to create a new flagship audio interface delivering the same professional-grade recording and monitoring capabilities, along with even more useful features and workflow-aiding improvements.
Headphone mixing provides 100% left channel to one ear and 100% to another. This creates something of a natural disadvantage in mixing by creating an exaggerated split and a stereo image that seems wider than its reality. SPL's Phonitor Matrix, now fully integrated with every Crimson 3 interface, aims to combat this.
Phonitor is a cross-feed functionality that fills the otherwise-neglected middle of the image to create a more natural stereo sound. The resulting stereo spread is then far more translatable when mixing between monitors and headphones between sessions or even on the fly.
Crimson's built-in talkback function negates the need for an external microphone for communicating with the instrumentalist or vocalist being recorded.
When talkback mode is enabled, the connected set of speakers in port A are automatically dimmed. This ensures built-in microphone feedback is avoided and that artists can hear instructions or feedback more clearly.
Another unique technology built-in to Crimson is SPL's Artist Mode feature. When engaged, the Crimson provides a separate mix curated to the recording performer's preference. While in Artist Mode, talkback audio is also routed via the second headphone output and monitor output B to ensure an entirely independent mix.
SPL have taken great care to ensure that the Crimson 3 serves as a veritable power-hub for any home, project or commercial studio. As such the desktop and layout form factors have been meticulously designed to ensure all controls are accessible, adjustments can easily be made, and that all ports, functions and features are always within reach.
With 16 inputs, 2 preamps, 6 individual playback channels, talkback, high end conversion and built-in monitor control facilities, the Crimson is truly a worthy centrepiece for any professional audio workspace.
