Grimm Audio is proudl to present the UC1. This "Universal Converter" redefines precision and versatility in mixing and mastering. By combining a monitor controller with a USB interface it can form the distinct heart of your studio. Just add a computer with DAW software, a pair of speakers and proper acoustics, and you're good to go. For more flexibility, hook up a second pair of speakers and some headphones. And to spice up your in-the-box mix, add some outboard flavours via the stereo analogue or digital loop.

If your main speakers are Grimm Audio LS1's or any other monitors with digital a input, they can be controlled from the UC1 via its proprietary cat5 connector. But there's also a balanced analogue output at your disposal to connect any main monitor system of choice.

On the front panel you will find two extra inputs: a unique second USB input to connect your laptop, tablet or smart phone, and a stereo general purpose jack input that doubles as an instrument input. A foldback function allows you to mix your instrument or vocal with the monitored mix inside the UC1, to avoid DAW latency influencing your performance.

The design process of such a versatile device takes long. As always, Grimm Audio's requirements were high and standard hardware and software solutions did not fulfil them. To reach this performance level, Grimm Audio had to develop everything themselves, from the audiophile switch mode power supply to USB firmware. For the signature super low jitter clock they designed a remarkable hybrid PLL that locks fast to external sources, and then gradually increases jitter suppression.
