The Grendel is a high end monitor controller, input selector, talkback system and more. A fully analog through-hole active design, the Grendel brings you quiet crystal clear audio with all the flexible features you need in one box.
All Analog Design. Nothing Digital, No Converters, No Software or Drivers to worry about.
Many monitor controllers you will find on the market today offer a lot of what you don’t necessarily need, which adds to the cost and sometimes sacrifices the quality. We set out to design the BEST monitor controller for working studios and engineers today at a cost that is affordable. Providing you with a high end piece that will provide you with many years of service at a moderate price. We have included the most useful features possible within the confines of a 1RU 19″ rack. No software that needs updating, no computer needed, no onboard converters.
We kept it 100% analog for a crystal clear audio path.
