SPL Creon

Creon is designed to operate with your Digital Audio Workstation. But you can also do a lot with it as a stand-alone device: plug in an instrument and play.

Mix your own monitor signal with playback or guide tracks from any source. What you are playing is not bad Turn on the DAW and record it.

2 microphone inputs (XLR)
1 instrument input (TS)
2 balanced line inputs (TRS)
Two channels can be recorded simultaneously.

Playback Channels
