Default SPL introduces audio interfaces!

SPL, who makes really nice high end analog outboard gear, is now getting into the audio interface game. This should be really cool.

I just saw this in my newsletter from them. They will be announced at Musikmesse.

I don't yet know how to attach pictures here, but here's the text/description:
