The ART SCC is the ideal compact solution allowing you to take complete control of your studio space. Three selectable stereo sources can be quickly and easily routed to any or all of three sets of stereo balanced outputs from the front panel. Sources can be individually selected or blended from the front panel. Separate trim pots ensure proper levels between sources can be preset. A large single volume knob controls the overall output level of the system.

A separate cue source input with its own outputs and level control allows a separate headphone mix to run in parallel to the main mix. The headphone output can easily switch between the cue source and the main input source with the touch of a single button on the front panel.

Additional controls on the SCC include a master mute switch, and a mono switch allowing you to sum the stereo inputs to mono to check phase in any mix.
In a typical studio setup, one set of inputs on the SCC would connect to the main output of your DAW workstation or computer audio card. Secondary outputs or headphone output would be connected to the SCC's Cue Mix input allowing for a second, completely separate headphone mix. Other sources (keyboard, iPod, analog sub mixer etc) can connect to the additional stereo inputs.
Outputs would be connected to nearfield and midfield monitors or monitors and subwoofer. Multiple inputs and outputs can be used at the same time.

Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreToronto - Bloor Street, Ontario
Starting with the positives: it was easy to setup, had a solid feeling construction (metal construction, smooth knobs, clicky buttons, etc), worked out of the box and did what it was supposed to do. For non crucial monitoring applications, this will do the job. I own a lot of other ART products (PS4x4Pro, HeadAmp 6Pro, MPA 2 and VLA 2) and I've been very happy with them. However, I can't recommend this unit for any crucial audio work based on my experience with the interface and sound quality. I found the interface to be rather tedious; one example being A/B switching. The only way to swap from monitor A to monitor B is by trying to hit the monitor A and B buttons at the same time, which isn't super easy since the buttons are just a little too small to press with two fingers and just a little too big for one finger. The fact that it is "rack style" makes this even more annoying. Another issue is with the sound of the unit itself. You can't send a lot of signal from your interface because there is so little headroom to work with on the ART. Because of this headroom issue, you have to compensate for lack of volume by cranking the output knob, which adds a significant amount of hiss to the signal. It also sucks a lot of the tone and definition out of your signal. I wish I could say there were better options out there for the price, but I have yet to find one. Dangerous Music is pretty much the standard if you have the budget, although I've heard good things about Drawmer's mid to high priced products which are certainly more affordable. I'm currently using my interface's software to manually switch the monitors around whenever I need. It's not as instant as a monitor switcher, but at least it's transparent!

I wasn't expecting to much at this price range but this units quality really exceeds it's price range. I thought it would compromise my sound coming out of my DAW as it is another device in the chain but by using the trim pots I am able to optimize the levels between my interface and speakers it actually sounds better!

I bought one of these a few months ago and within a week it stopped working - burned out internally and would not send an output signal. Had it replaced under warranty and the second met exactly the same fate within 2 months. Absolutely garbage and a waste of money. If the units weren't so cheaply made and actually lasted, they would be great value, but after going through 2 units in under 4 months, I'd advise going with anything else.

Bought this to feel things out while setting up my bedroom studio, I have two sets of monitors and a Roland Cube 30 i use for playing live against my recorded track. the unit is solid compact. and fits nicely on my desk, nice big volume knob, easy switching between monitors and I use the third switch for the roland, so far no issues at all. was going to use this as a stepping stone for the rack mount central station, but seriously cannot find a reason to take it out of the studio now, it works perfect, i send the headphone out to an ART headphone amp at a closet i Coverted to a vocal booth, and have two sets of headphones there. So the headphone volume I use as the master volume, and then you adjust volume acordingly at the ART headphone amp.
