Avocet Studio Controller

Crane Song - Avocet

In the 90s I used a Tascam M1600 mixer. As studio life went ITB (in the box) most of the large mixer sat unused. After I while I got sick of cleaning the dust off it and switched to a Presonus Central Station to handle my monitor controlling. It’s passive which means my audio doesn’t take a trip through DSP chips. The “passive” bit was the selling point for me and why I recommend it over a Mackie Big Knob. It’s nice but the Avocet from Crane Song is the Lamborghini of monitor controllers.

    If the Crane Song is a Lamborghini, what does that make the Dangerous MONITOR ST-SR?
