SPL Crimson 3

Audio Interface with Analog Monitoring, Phonitor Matrix and Talkback Microphone

“With the Crimson 3, German hardware specialist SPL puts out an even more excellent successor of their big seller. By including a Talkback Microphone and especially by integrating the legendary Phonitor Matrix, SPL takes the unit to a whole new level in terms of product value and practicality.

I do absolutely recommend this unit for any kind of home or postproduction studio and as far as I know when it comes to the price-performance ratio it owns an unrivalled market position.”
