SPL Crimson

Post by claudel » Sat Feb 15, 2014 1:39 pm

Any impressions?

I'm thinking about taking the plunge soon, as soon as I can find out if
the apps I want to use like Auria, JamUp, AmpKit+, Audiobus and all
the other usual suspects will play nicely with it.

Seems like a great piece, and SPL has a good reputation and seems responsive.

I don't have one but I emailed SPL with two questions.

1) Do the midi ports work with iPad?
answer "yes, that works. Tried it with Garageband."

2) Does it charge the iPad when in use?
answer "no"

The second of those answers is a pity.

I also notice that the connectors are all cheap plastic types - no metal locking XLRs or metal surrounds on the instrument or headphone inputs. The sockets all look PCB mounted rather than the preferable chassis mounting.

my new SPL Crimson (2nd Generation) arrived a few days ago.
It works fine with Auria Pro on my Ipad 4 IOS 9.2.1
I have noticed, that there isnt any audio unit runnig with the CCK, that would be able to charge the Ipad.
Plastic connectors are almost standard in this price category.
The sound ist great and an audio interface + stand alone monitoring was my requirement to buy the SPL Crimson.

greetings to the Auria Community :)
