Headquartered on an unassuming street in Superior, WI (the visual definition of "Small Town, USA"), Crane Song Ltd. inventor and designer Dave Hill has quietly been producing cream-of-the-crop studio gear for decades. With a range of products including deep, extensive processors like the STC-8 compressor and IBIS equalizer, digital gear like the HEDD 192 and Spider preamp/mixer/converter, and the world-renowned Avocet monitor controllers, Crane Song gear is all designed and tested in real-world studio environments and has found homes in recording, mixing and mastering facilities all over the world.
