The Crane Song Avocet IIA improves upon previous Avocet controllers with a 5th-generation Quantum DAC with less than 1ps jitter. That's amazingly low, and it's just one reason the Avocet IIA sounds so good. With three digital inputs, three analog inputs, three monitor outs, and a built-in headphone amp with talkback functionality, the Avocet IIA is flexible enough to be the centerpiece for any studio. A direct subwoofer output is present on each output pair for easy subwoofer integration. And the output levels are programmable in 0.25dB steps for precise level matching. All digital signals are upsampled and jitter reduced for outstanding accuracy during D/A conversion. Tracking, mixing, and mastering require the best monitoring you can achieve, and Sweetwater can confirm that the Crane Song Avocet IIA gets you there.

  • Analog and digital inputs
  • Headphone and talkback circuit
Analog and digital inputs

The Avocet IIA provides both analog and digital inputs to allow you to connect straight from your DAW or mixing board. The analog inputs take the form of XLRs, and the digital inputs are AES/EBU and S/PDIF. The Avocet IIA will facilitate the connection of up to three pairs of speakers via XLR outputs, with a dedicated subwoofer output for each output pair. The included remote gives you the power to check your mix on different sets of speakers from where you're sitting.

Headphone and talkback circuit

The Avocet IIA doesn't just manage multiple pairs of monitors - it also provides headphone cue mix and talkback functionality. This can be extremely handy during the tracking process. The headphone cue mix can be different than the signal sent to the monitors, giving the engineer an accurate representation of what's happening in the room, while the artists have the headphone mix that they need to lay down their parts. The remote has an XLR input for the connection of a talkback mic, making communicating with the talent during tracking a snap.
