Product Overview *** 3XS Approved *** Tom Says:
Any product that lists as one of its features "Humorous product name ensures years of off-color studio humor." must be good, and after years of working with small monitor level controls, i made the jump and invested in a big knob myself this year.
I cant quite explain how having a giant volume control is better, but as everyone who comes through the studio comments, they dont want to go back to thier little knobs afterwards.
In all seriousness, this is a cracking bit of kit, that has the ability to switch between three sets of monitor speakers, plus two sets of headphones, all with individual volume trim controls for comparing mixes, it also has a built-in mic for talkback to vocalists or performers you are recording.
Mostly though, it feels "pro" the controls are smooth and the buttons firm, the slight angle is "just right" ergonomically for comfort during long sessions.
If you are asking.. "Why do i need an analogue volume control?, i can control that on the computer", well yes you can, but the digital control inside the computer actually degrades the audio signal when the volume is lowered. Potentially turning a 24bit soundcard into an 8 or 12 bit one at the lowest levels!
the Ideal solution is to have the computer output volume on full and an analogue volume control after the computer, thus giving optimum dynamic range and minimal noise levels. The Big Knob is widely accpted by the pro audio industry to have no colouration effect on the sound and introduces no extra noise to the signal.


The Big Knob is a simple yet powerful desktop audio control center that lets musicians and engineers get
right to the business of making music in four major ways: Level Control, Studio Monitor Selection, Input
Source Selection and Talkback & Headphone Control. Features •Tabletop level control / monitor switcher / source selector & talkback box
