Small knobs lack precision – but the bigger the knob, the better the level of precision. Think of a control knob as a circle. On a small circle/knob the distance from one degree to the next is very small, making it challenging to dial-in perfection. On our really big knob, the distance between the degrees of the circle is much larger, allowing you to make minute adjustments with ease. CONTROL2USB lets you set levels fast and accurately, which can be critical to the final sound when it comes to mastering an important project.
What is VCA?
Unlike the typical and inexpensive resistive faders used by our competitors, the CONTROL2USB utilizes high-end Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) technology to provide the ultimate in precision level adjustment. And while conventional faders directly control how much of the signal passes through to the amplifier, our bigger knob actually controls the voltage that drives the amplifier, for output that remains absolutely faithful to the source.
Built-in USB Connectivity
The high-quality, built-in USB audio interface lets you connect directly to your computer and its digital library, creating the ultimate sound source control center – with no additional hardware or drivers required.
More Monitor Options
In the golden age of recording, engineers had to make the mix sound great in just two places, the studio and the car. When you consider the acoustic environments and the equipment used in each, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Today’s computer-based recordings have to sound great in even more situations, such as MP3 players, podcasts and other bass-challenged systems – so experiencing your mix through as many speaker systems as possible is more essential than ever. The ultra-convenient CONTROL2USB lets you switch between up to 3 pairs of studio monitors; add or remove a subwoofer; listen through vintage-style small monitors (such as our C5A or C50A), or any other combination – at the mere press of a button!
Behringer Values Your Input
Behringer gave the CONTROL2USB enough connectivity to handle just about anything you’re likely to plug in. Four stereo Inputs allow you to connect a CD player, MP3 player, computer/ DAW – and even a turntable, thanks to the built-in high-end RIAA preamp. Plus you can connect keyboards, drum machines or anything else you’d like to put through your monitors.
All-Access Backstage Pass
The rear panel of the CONTROL2USB provides 3 separate Monitor Outputs with individual Level controls; a computer/DAW stereo Output; 2-Track A and B stereo Outs with Level switches; a Studio Out with Level and Phones Out with Level switch. Inputs include: Channels 1 & 2 stereo Source Inputs with independent Level controls; a computer/DAW Mix Input with Level control, with one selectable as a Phono Input for your turntable. There’s even a footswitch jack so you can activate the built-in Talkback mic, without taking your hands off the mix. You get all this I/O capability – plus USB connectivity.
No need for a desk stand and an external mic to talk to the talent in the isolation booth. CONTROL2USB’s high-quality, built-in microphone is just a button push away, so you can save your mics for the drum kit. The onboard headphone amplifier section lets you connect 2 pairs of headphones with individual level controls, which should make the next session one of your best.
