Crane Song AVOCET Surround Monitor Controller Details

The Cranesong Avocet has become the go-to 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 inputs, three analog inputs, three monitor outs - each with direct subwoofer outputs featuring programmable levels in 0.25 db steps for speaker level matching, 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. The new Quantum DAC uses 32 bit a converter and ASRC for jitter reduction up sampling to 211KHz. Avocet has always upsampled to 211KHz. The reference clock has less then 1pS, 0.5pS typical 1Hz to 100KHz and a proprietary reconstruction filter for accurate time domain response.Tracking, mixing, and mastering require the best monitoring you can achieve.

Analog and Digital Inputs

The Avocet provides both analog and digital inputs to allow you to connect straight from your DAW or mixing board. The Analog inputs 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, along with direct subwoofer outputs for each pair. Output levels are programmable in 0.25 db steps for speaker level matching. The included remote gives you 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 provides headphone cue mix and talkback functionality. This can be extremely handy 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 input for the connection of a talkack mic, making communicating with the talent during tracking a snap.
