Our friend and SPL user Alberto Caltanella has released a new album called “Wind Bells,“ available as a CD + book version. The guitarist and “flatpicking“ specialist has been using SPL gear for a long time and is especially fond of our GoldMike Mk2, which he, once again, used to record his new album.

Creon: Great sound, intuitive handling, flexible connection options, clever concept!

One year ago, our Crimson USB interface and monitor controller was put to the test in German magazine Soundcheck. The time has come for its smaller sibling, the SPL Creon, to prove its worth in the current issue (12/15). Just like the Crimson, the Creon's sound and concept passed with flying colors.

"German manufacturer SPL has just raised the bar when it comes to mastering compressors."

German periodical Studio Magazin has just put out the first-ever review of our IRON Mastering compressor. In the current issue (09/2015), Fritz Fey and Friedemann Kootz decided to put the IRON to the test and write a comprehensive review. Below you can find some of their impressions, but the full review (in German) is certainly worth a read (you can download it from our server). Right from the very first words you can tell how everything is going to unfold:

"A conceptual masterpiece conceived by SPL Chief Developer and company owner Wolfgang Neumann."
