SPL Creon Ties Your Studio Together


Buying Choices

The SPL Creon, the newest member in the SPL audio interface/monitor controller family, combines a USB Interface and analog monitor controller in a single unit.

SPL says that the Creon features the same premium converters and characteristics as the bigger SPL Crimson but has been optimized to accommodate for the needs of small home and project studios.

A spokesperson told us, "The Creon was basically conceived as a two-channel AD/DA interface. The built-in instrument preamp and two microphone preamps, together with the line inputs, allow the user to amplify, monitor and convert all sorts of signals and record them with a DAW. Further, the comprehensive analog monitor controller features enable the recorded signal to be monitored without any latency, while at the same time compare it with other analog sources, thanks to the second source input. Apart from the AD/DA converters and USB port, all other functions can be used in standalone mode. The Monitor-Mix knob makes it possible to intuitively mix the corresponding signals and listen to them through headphones or speakers. To top it off, the thrifty price makes it now possible for desktop studios to enjoy the well-known SPL quality without breaking the bank."

Creon is available in black (Model 1410) and white (Model 1412).
