Description

Condition: This unit is in brand new, unused condition. A customer opened this in-store. Includes full warranty, original box, quick start guide, power supply and USB cable.

Crimson 3 combines a high-performance USB audio interface with high-quality preamps and a separate, fully-featured analog 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 truly professional recording setup is the Crimson3 and a DAW.

The SPL Phonitor Matrix – which is now part of the Crimson 3 – delivers a speaker-like listening experience on headphones. And with the built-in Talkback Mic the producer/engineer can communicate with the artist in Artist Mode without fiddling with an extra mic, cable or preamplifier.

With and without DAW

Crimson 3 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. You like what you hear? Connect the DAW and record it. 

You can also use the Crimson 3 as a stand-alone DA-converter by using the SPDIF input as a digital in.

Microphone, Instrument and Line Inputs

Taking into account both microphone inputs, the two instrument and four line inputs, you have eight analog inputs at your disposal. Four of the eight analog input signals can be simultaneously recorded.

The selection is defined by the assignment of the corresponding inputs. This has the advantage that the channel configuration can be directly and intuitively made by the assignment of the connections, plus there is almost no need for switching.

The input selection follows this provision:

  • Line Inputs 1/2 have preference over Mic Inputs 1/2.
  • Instrument inputs 3/4 have preference over Line Inputs 3/4.
