Pro monitoring features for your home and project studio.

Manage multiple audio sources and sets of monitor speakers, track using illegally loud headphone amplifiers, and talk back to your drummer—all from your desktop.Your personal studio is well equipped with a great interface and a CD player with an S/PDIF digital output. Perhaps you also need to listen to audio from a third source, such as a tape deck, or you want to be able to audition two different stereo mixes from the interface. The Monitor Station V2 provides a convenient desktop control center where you can switch between these sources without compromising the sound quality.

Consider Your Sources
Switch between two pairs of balanced ¼” TRS and a third input channel that can be fed from an S/PDIF digital input (44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz), one pair of unbalanced RCA Aux inputs with gain control, and a 1/8” TRS unbalanced input that is summed with the RCA Aux inputs. A button switches between the analog Aux and digital S/PDIF inputs.

The Monitor Station allows each of the stereo inputs (TRS1, TRS2, aux) to be routed to one of two audio paths: Main and Cue. You also can route two separate signals (Main and Cue) to each of the four headphone amplifiers, which we’ll discuss shortly.

Manage your destinations
Your small monitors and your large monitors—say, a pair of Eris E5s and a set of Sceptre S6s or S8s—both sound great but they’re constructed differently and each reveals things the other doesn’t. That’s why you have both. And you have a beloved vintage set of monitors that you’ll never surrender. But if you have to manually repatch the three sets of monitors one more time, you’re going to freak out and dummy-slap an alligator. (We strongly urge you not to do that.)

No worries! With Monitor Station V2, you can switch between the three sets of monitors instantly! Not only that, you can set each set of speakers’ level individually so that when you switch between speakers, your monitoring level stay the same.

Get this in your head
You have nothing against drummers (that you’ll admit to); you simply can’t fit drums in your main studio room. However, drums sound great in that big living room. And you get terrific natural reverb on the guitar when you throw that six-string slinger and his rig in the bathroom. Your treated walk-in closet makes a dandy isolation booth for singers.

But they each need a headphone feed, and you need to give them verbal cues. And you don’t want to buy even more gear to do it.
You’re covered with Monitor Station V2. It offers four ¼” TRS stereo headphone outputs driven by amplifiers so loud they ought to be illegal. Unless they’re stone deaf, your musicians will hear themselves! Each headphone out has a Main/Cue source selector, and individual output-level control. That’s the equivalent of a built-in HP4 headphone system!

Have it your way
There’s more to managing a monitoring system than I/O, level controls, and talkback; Monitor Station V2 delivers all of the features you need.
Eight-segment, three-color LED meters indicate left and right signal levels. These LED meters can be set in any of three modes for use with +4 dB, +10 dB, or +18 dB signal levels.

A Mono switch sums the stereo outputs so you can check for phase problems. A large, conveniently located knob controls the main speaker output level (but not the main line-level outs), and a Dim switch with attenuation knob lets you reduce the speaker output by a variable amount (-30 to -6 dB). Of course, you can mute the speakers as well.

  • Good station for the money!

    As reviewed by Jake on 12/21/2014

    I've had my unit for about 2 months now. I use it to control my Yamaha HS8's, and the unit does not color the sound what so ever. Really overall simple to use, you can have 3 different monitor speakers going which is amazing all on a click of a button. You can also use this for voice over mic into your vocalists headphones with a simple click of a button, which is very useful. Overall, it's something that gets the job done for controlling your speakers easily and in a simple way. I'd recommend this to any home studio looking to control multiple speakers or headphones. If I would have any small complaints, maybe the knobs feel some what cheap at times, but no big deal its just a control station! Go grab it if you need something like this, you won't be disappointed.
