SPL Audio Crimson by Woodhouse
I've been using the SPL Crimson for over 3 years now . Before I go into saying that it has a good sound quality , based from my experience I'd advice anyone to stay away from this garbage . In 3 years , there hasn't been a single project , nor a single day that my work wasnt crippled from the driver issues of this interface. I had mailed SPL several times regarding this issue. They came out with a new driver update this February and while the minor improvement had me feeling better for a little while , it soon became clear that this release too was no way close to 'good'
Let SPL themselves to work on a project with this interface and see how it works out.
It is one thing to release a bad driver and totally another thing to ignore the complaints and pretend as if the problems aren't there. They do not respond to emails nor do they seem to take up any responsibility for these issues.
This is no exaggeration . In day to day work the most important thing is to have a stable driver performance without freeze/BSODs/ and crackles. Can you imagine having to restart the system a dozen times a day with the client sitting there ?
I just regret not having bought something like RME .
About the sound quality , I can say that it has very nice pres and DA/AD . But its pointless if you can't get a decent workflow.
Worse is SPL's customer support. Stay away from this product if you want peace of mind.
