SPL Crimson 3 Overview

The black SPL Crimson 3 is a USB audio interface designed to provide flexible connectivity, high-resolution audio, and versatile analog monitoring for musicians, audio engineers, and producers in project studios, recording facilities, and mobile rigs. It supports resolutions up to 24-bit / 192 kHz and can be used as a standalone device or with your DAW via USB. It is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and iOS.

Record up to six channels simultaneously regardless of the selected sample rate. There are two microphone preamps with selectable phantom power and 80 Hz high-pass filters. Instruments such as guitars, bass, or keyboards can be connected to the front-panel 1/4” TS jacks. The rear-panel provides access to six 1/4” TRS inputs, stereo RCA, and 3.5mm inputs, S/PDIF digital I/O, and MIDI I/O.

Two sets of speakers are supported via XLR and 1/4" TRS output jacks. Dual headphone outputs and an integrated Phonitor Matrix with adjustable Crossfeed intensity provide monitoring ideal for tracking and mixing. For efficient recording and overdubbing, a built-in talkback mic and one-knob monitor mix function deliver simple communication and headphone mixes.
