SPL Control One 1903
SPL Control One 1903 Monitoring Controller test
Speaker & Subwoofer
A production can be monitored via two switchable pairs of speakers. A subwoofer is also switched on and off with speaker pair A.
In the middle position of the switch, the speakers are switched off, which is convenient because there is no need to turn down the volume.
The volume levels can be adjusted at lightning speed with the Monitor knob. In the middle, all input signals are equally loud. To the left, the analog stereo inputs get louder and the USB input signal gets quieter. Turning from the center to the right does the opposite. This is very handy to quickly and intuitively set the right volume levels.
Line Inputs & USB
Two analog stereo sources can be connected to the Control One. Other players like CD player, mixer, synthesizer or an analog tape machine / tape deck can be connected to the analog line inputs.
The selected input signal is directly routed to the line out. This allows the Marc One to be looped between devices without “losing” an output. If, for example, several people listening via headphones, a headphone amplifier can simply be connected to the Line Out. The signal can also be recorded analog or send to a mixer for further processing.
Three Monitoring Modes
are offered by the Control One. In the middle is the default setting “Stereo”. The mono compatibility can be checked
when the switch is set to “Mono”. The special feature is the channel swap function:
L/R > R/L
reverses the stereo image. L/R becomes R/L. This is especially important and extremely time-saving while searching a sound library for samples in video dubbing that should match a scene with direction of movement. If the direction is not correct, the sample has usually to be loaded into the DAW to switch channels. With the L/R > R/L function this is no longer necessary. The direction of movement can simply be swapped while prelistening samples in the library.
