Super nice build – Solid! Volume knob feels GREAT. Like the LEDs a lot. No overdone distracting light show, pleasing to the eye. The clarity in the high end was literally like a veil being lifted off. A major advantage is being able to travel with it and hear the same thing at any studio. Having the DACport means I can monitor separately with superior sound quality.

In the VAR position, it also adjusts the XLR outputs, letting you use the product as a mastering-grade DAC and desktop volume control for your studio monitors.

You are a keyboard player who uses Virtual Instruments to play live on a stage, in a church, or in a studio.

Stream in pristine quality, every time. Play your set in audiophile fidelity and make the groove bounce.

Add a monitor controller to your home studio

Our professional potentiometer feels solid and is a pleasure to adjust. Mix on monitors or over headphones — the choice is yours. The audio quality will be there.
