Crimson

USB Audio Interface + Monitor Controller

Crimson combines an audio interface with high-quality preamps and a fully-featured monitor controller. You can play and play back, record and convert, control and listen with one single device.

So all you essentially need for a professional recording start-up is the Crimson and a DAW.

  • Max. six recording and six playback channels
  • 10 source connections, 20 monitoring channels
  • 34V operational voltage for pro levels up to +22dBu
  • 24Bit/192kHz converter
  • Two discrete mic preamplifiers
  • Two instrument preamplifiers (Hi-Z, +22dBu)
  • Two separate headphones amps
  • Connect and control two stereo speaker sets
  • Monitor mix from recording and DAW return paths
  • Individual artist monitoring signal, with talkback option
  • Hot-plugging iPad recording/monitoring (Class 2 compliance)
  • Hi-Speed USB 2.0 (480MBit/s), MIDI I/O, SPDIF I/O
  • WIN XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 (32/64 Bit)
  • MAC OSX 10.6/higher, iOS 6/higher
  • HxWxD: 60x330x207 mm, 2.36"x13"x8.15"
  • Made in Germany

New Features of the 2nd Revision:

  • Monitoring of a digital input (SPDIF SOURCE) available in stand-alone mode (no DAW required)
  • Artist Mode can be disabled via dip switch, if SPK B is used for a second pair of speakers
  • Improved gain matching with new level range dip switch
  • Improved Mic Gain potentiometer range
  • Improved Mic inputs overvoltage protection
  • Longer illumination/Peak Hold of the -6dB LEDs
  • Longer illumination/Peak Hold of the MIDI LED

Crimson is designed to operate with your Digital Audio Workstation. But you can also do a lot with it as a 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. What you are playing is not bad? Turn on the DAW and record it.

The Crimson leaps forward to set a new sound quality benchmark in its price range. With the Crimson you have a boutique device at a fraction of the price we used to know from traditional engineering and manufacturing.
