The MC16 from SPL is a 16 channel monitor controller designed specifically for mastering houses demanding the highest grade of reference audio possible.

Embracing Immersive Audio

As the demand for formats such as Dolby and Auro rises, SPL are developing intuitive tools to accommodate the explosion of immersive audio processing duties now required by mastering studios.

With the MC16, SPL are proud to present a 16 channel reference grade monitor controller featuring custom designed 16-gang precision pots, fabulously professional to the touch, and offering function ease of recall between different tracks and sessions.

DMC Friendly

The MC16 has been designed to integrate flawlessly with SPL’s DMC mastering console and allows mastering engineers to work with all major audio playback formats, each at the same reference grade level without the need to patch or repatch monitoring speakers.

The 120V Rail Way

As with all SPL high-end mastering facing equipment, the MC16 operates solely on their proprietary 120V rail technology, boasting a voltage four times higher than a traditional operational amplifier semiconductor circuit.

The harnessing of 120V boosts headroom, dynamic range, and overall sonic performance to a level absolutely inline with the demands of modern mastering and immersive audio studios – no contest.
