Why We Love This Product!

Take Control of Your Monitors!

The geniuses at Crane Song continue expanding their line of avian-named products! The Avocet has become the favorite monitor control box for some of the most respected names in recording and mastering because of its broad range of capabilities and its outstanding sound quality. With three digital ins, three analog inputs, three monitor outs, and built-in headphone amp with talkback functionality, the Avocet is flexible enough to be the centerpiece for any studio - there are even dim, mute, and mono functions. Buffered meter outputs are also included. All digital signals are up-sampled and jitter-reduced for outstanding accuracy during D/A conversion. Tracking, mixing, and mastering require the best monitoring you can achieve.

Crane Song Avocet At-a-Glance:
    • Analog and Digital Inputs
    • Headphone and Talkback Circuit

Analog and Digital Inputs
The Avocet rocks both analog and digital ins to allow you to connect straight from your DAW or mixing board. The Analog Ins take the form of XLRs, and the digital inputs are AES/EBU and S/PDIF. The Avocet will facilitate the connection of up to three pairs of speakers via XLR ouputs. The included remote offers up the power to check your mix on different sets of speakers from where you're sitting.

Headphone and Talkback Circuit
The Avocet doesn't just manage multiple pairs of monitors - it also has headphone cue mix and talkback functionality. This can be extremely useful during the tracking process. The headphone cue mix can be different that the signal sent to the monitors, giving the engineer an accurate representation of what's happening in the room, while the artists have the headphone mix that they need to lay down thier parts. The remote has a XLR in for the connection of a talkack microphone, making communicating with the talent during tracking a snap.

Crane Song Avocet Features:
    • Analog and Digital Inputs
    • Headphone and Talkback Circuit
    • Level Matching Between Sources
    • XLR Inputs and Outputs
    • AES/EBU and S/PDIF Digital Inputs
    • Remote Control
    • Up-sampled and jitter reduced Digital Signals to Ensure Highest Accuracy During D/A Conversion
