OVERVIEW

Enables total control over your monitor levels with minimum fuss and cost.

Level Pilot is a stylish, high-resolution volume solution that fits into any active speaker setup quickly and easily and with a minimum of clutter and wires. This results in convenient and high-precision control over your levels where you would ideally want it: right at your fingertips. Whether you are a passionate hobbyist recording in your bedroom, a musician with a small home studio setup or working at a pro recording facility, Level Pilot makes sure the volume is always exactly where you need it, when you need it.

Practical, elegant, and beautiful—Level Pilot is a high quality, analog, stereo volume control that works independently of the computer or audio interface, so no matter what happens during tracking or mixing, you now have complete control over your levels in all situations and at all times. It features a solid and compact 'slip-free' design that fits into any active recording or live setup without the need for an extra power supply, and employs quad-core cabling to minimize clutter. Its sturdy and luxurious aluminum design makes it bold enough to remain within sight and reachable at all times, and it fits practically and beautifully into any music creation and editing setup, simplifying and enhancing your workflow wherever it may take you.

High Resolution, low noise—With any Digital to Analog recording setup it is important to keep the resolution as high as possible at all times throughout the digital signal chain. Digitally controlling the levels prior to the last Digital to Analog conversion—a common practice used by most audio interfaces, digital mixers and digital audio devices—reduces the resolution of the conversion, thus degrading the final signal quality. Level Pilot's smart design steers clear of this by allowing you to control the volume levels after the conversion, ensuring maximum resolution without ever sacrificing audio quality.

FEATURES
  • High resolution computer-independent analog level control
  • Power free - No power-supply required
  • Smooth ergonomic feel
  • 'Tight grip' rubberized bottom plate
  • Fully balanced XLR connectivity
  • Compact design for easy placement
  • Quad core fully balanced extension cable to avoid messy cabling on your desk

    Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Desktop Volume Control:

    This is a great little unit. It takes 10 seconds to connect, feels solid and it just works. The only thing I would change is to add a mute or dim function, the former of which would keep the unit passive. For the build quality and price, it is unbeatable! Musician's Friend had an unbelievable promo price with free shipping. I should've purchased two!

    Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Desktop Volume Control:

    I needed to replace the monitor section on my console which was adding distortion that was not actually in the recording. I placed the Level Pilot in the signal path between the main console outputs and my monitors and instantly my problem was solved. It sounds great, good depth of field and stereo spread. Highly recommended.

      Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Desktop Volume Control:

      The knob is great. Its nice that it's footprint is so much smaller than the Mackie big knob or presonus stuff. It can fit right in next to the keyboard and the mouse. Makes it very seamless.

      The turning operation is very smooth and the knob has a really nice tactile feel to it. Sound quality is great and the volume seems very linear from low to high. I love it.

      As others have said, the xlr leads are definitely too short to plug directly into powered monitors. But I prefer this, as I think it will actually add to its durability in the longrun. Longer cords would be more fragile and are going to wear out and get mucked up a lot quicker.

      I think its better to think of this as a breakout cable and extend them as needed. But it's not a problem for me, as I'm just going from my converters to my amp.

      well worth the money!

      By Drummerman1

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about TC Electronic Level Pilot Desktop Volume Control:

      though this may seem quite expensive for a big knob with a cable coming out of the back but it is truly thee coolest thing ever! and it looks amazing on your desk. the features seem minimal but it does what its made to do, and does it well so i gave it a 5. the quality is far beyond a 5, this thing is built like a tank! the value seems poor, but it's my favorite part of my whole studio! overall it does what its made to do! i definitely would recommend it to anybody!!!
