Our Price: $549.00

A bit of everything in this simple, but thorough desktop solution to all kinds of monitoring for all kinds of DAWs. Choose between 3 sets of studio monitors, communicate with the talent via talkback-to-headphones, and control the whole lot with the 'big knob'.

Source Selection:
On the input side, Big Knob lets you connect up to 4 stereo input sources at once. This means you can simultaneously connect to your computer/DAW outputs, CD player, cassette deck and even a turntable using the premium onboard RIAA preamp. You can even connect keyboards, guitars, drum machines, samplers - anything you'd like to hear - through your monitors.
