When it’s time to get down to the business of recording or mixing, the last thing you’ll want to do is crawl under your desk and run cables. The ultra-handy CONTROL1USB gets you off your knees, putting Master Volume, Talkback, Source selection and Monitor control right at your fingertips. Now you can choose from up to 3 sets of active studio monitors and 4 different stereo input sources to create powerful, custom monitor mixes. Plus the built-in Talkback mic lets you communicate directly with the talent. The incredibly-versatile CONTROL1USB makes you the master of your domain!
Small knobs lack precision – but the bigger the knob, the better the level of precision. Think of a control knob as a circle. On a small circle/knob the distance from one degree to the next is very small, making it challenging to dial-in perfection. On our really big knob, the distance between the degrees of the circle is much larger, allowing you to make minute adjustments with ease. CONTROL1USB lets you set levels fast and accurately, which can be critical to the final sound when it comes to mastering an important project.
The high-quality, built-in USB audio interface lets you connect directly to your computer and its digital library, creating the ultimate sound source control center – with no additional hardware or drivers required.
In the golden age of recording, engineers had to make the mix sound great in just two places, the studio and the car. When you consider the acoustic environments and the equipment used in each, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Today’s computer-based recordings have to sound great in even more situations, such as MP3 players, podcasts and other bass-challenged systems – so experiencing your mix through as many speaker systems as possible is more essential than ever. The ultra-convenient CONTROL1USB lets you switch between up to 3 pairs of studio monitors; add or remove a subwoofer; listen through vintage-style small monitors (such as our C5A or C50A), or any other combination – at the mere press of a button!
We gave the CONTROL1USB enough connectivity to handle just about anything you’re likely to plug in. Four stereo Inputs allow you to connect a CD player, MP3 player, computer/ DAW – and even a turntable, thanks to the built-in high-end RIAA preamp. Plus you can connect keyboards, drum machines or anything else you’d like to put through your monitors.
