PowerPre $449 100% discreet mic preamplifier with three position voice control, transformer output, easy access front panel xlr input and guitar input via the Omniport.

The Radial JDV LB is a 100% discreet class-A instrument direct box with a unique feed-forward design that does not employ any form of traditional negative feedback phase cancellation techniques whatsoever to stabilize the input circuit. This innovative design captures the very essence of instrument and delivers the natural tone without artifact.

Like the original JDV, the LB version is equipped with instrument input plus a buffered thru-put that can be used to drive 50 feet of high-Z cable to the amplifier. Radial's innovative Drag™ Control load correction allows the user to apply the desired load on
the pickup for the most natural rendering. This can be bypassed for a 4 meg-ohm input
for finicky piezo pickups. The JDV-LB is augmented with an adjustable high-pass filter designed to remove low-end resonance to help clean up the mix. The JDV Omniport™ is set up as a hi-
Z output to drive a tuner, a second amplifier or effects. This makes the JDV the ideal front end
interface for bass guitar, acoustics and any other direct to recorder instrument you may
encounter.

Radial Komit $449 is a powerful dynamic processor designed to provide high resoltion VCA compressor-limiter functionality while opening the door to creativity, depending on how it is used. As with any compressor, the Komit features a typical compression ratio control. This is enhanced with a 'smart'three-position feed-forward, auto-tracking mode that sets the response time to slow, mediumor fast to control the ballistics.

Stereo linking is possible by switching the link function on theWorkhorse rack. This is augmented with a unique sync function that employs a time constant instead of voltage to synchronize the compression so that multiple units may be locked together for greater accuracy. This is particularly advantageous when recording in 5.1 surround.

A separate 20:1 limiter provides a dynamic ceiling to ensure signals do not exceed the recording system's maximum input settings. This great sounding vintage style, diode bridge circuit delivers smooth confident performance at one end and when driven hard by the make-up gain control, it can sound downright nasty for generating creative effects. The Komit's Omniport(TM) provides a key input for ducking, automatic level control, de-essing and when combined with an EQ, frequency dependent compression.

Radial JDV LB $359 is a 100% discreet class-A instrument direct box with a unique feed-forward design that does not employ any form of traditional negative feedback phase cancellation techniques whatsoever to stabilize the input circuit. This innovative design captures the very essence of instrument and delivers the natural tone without artifact. Like the original JDV, the LB version is equipped with instrument input plus a buffered thru-put that can be used to drive 50 feet of high-Z cable to the amplifier. Radial's innovative Drag(TM) Control load correction allows the user to apply the desired load on the pickup for the most natural rendering.

The JDV Omniport(TM) is set up as a hi-Z output to drive a tuner, a second amplifier or effects. This makes the JDV the ideal front end interface for bass guitar, acoustics and anyother direct to recorder instrument you may encounter.

Radial X-Amp $269 is the most popular re-amplifying device on the market today. Re-amping basically allows a prerecorded track such as a clean guitar to be sent from the recording system to the X-Amp where the signal is both unbalanced and the impedance is converted from lo-to-hi to properly interface with a guitar amplifier or pedals. The advantages of re-amping are numerous: The guitarist need only concentrate on the performance. This eliminates arduous repetition while the engineer attempts to move the microphones to get the right tone. With the X-Amp in the system, the prerecorded track is captured using a direct box like the Radial J48 and then mic placement, amp selection and tonal balance is fine tuned as the production advances.   The X-Amp LB adds extra spice to the mix with two class-A buffered outputs each with its own level control that can drive upwards to 50 feet of high-Z cable.   Transformer isolation and ground lift help eliminate hum & buzz caused by ground loops while a 180º polarity reverse assures both amps play in phase. The X-Amp Omniport(TM) is configured with a high impedance guitar input allowing a guitar to drive two amps at the same time further expanding the creative options.

Radial EXTC $269 is an effects loop processor that converts +4dB balanced signals to HI-Z guitar effects pedals and then reconverts them back so that they can easily be manipulated in the pro-audio environment.

The EXTC begins with separate send and receive controls that enable the engineer to adjust levels as needed. These are supplemented with a mix/blend control that allows the original signal to be blended with effects to achieve the perfect balance. This is particularly important with bass as most guitar effects are focused in the mid range which invariably cut off the important bass frequencies when processed. One merely adjusts the mix between wet and dry signals

for amazing results. An important feature on the EXTC is the 180º polarity reverse. Most folks do not realize that guitar pedals often reverse the phase of the signal as it passes through the effect. This is only noticed when combining

dry and wet signals when they cancel each other out. The phase reverse function solves the problem by inverting the polarity and brings both the wet/dry signals back into absolute phase. The EXTC's Omniport(TM) is configured to work with a traditional patchbay using a TRS tip-send and ring-return format. This enables the EXTC to quickly be patched into any signal path as needed.

Radial Phazer LB $319 is a phase alignment tool that is primarily used to timealign the fundamental frequencies of two sources. This could be two microphones, two direct boxes or combinations. For instance, combining a mic'd guitar cabinet with a direct feed from say a Radial JDX can deliver huge fat tones or the type of mid-range signature reminiscent ofTom Schultz's Bostonian hits.

Where things can get really interesting is when you combine two sources and use phase cancellation to move instruments in and out of the mix. Unlike digital delays or chip based phase adjustment devices, the Phazer employs 100% discreet, class-A, 'old-school' type electronics to deliver the warm, natural tone.

This lends more of an organic rendering to the tone which can be very pleasing.

The Phazer features a variable 180º control plus a polarity reverse that reaches the entire 360º phase shift range. This is supplemented with a separate low-pass filter that enables the engineer to focus the effect on the more audible low frequency spectrum.   The Phazer's Omniport is used to deliver a direct (un-processed) output to allow multiunit patching and experimentation with phase cancellation as an alternative to regular equalizer for tone shaping.

Radial JDX $269 is a guitar amp and speaker interface that is designed to capture both the sound of the head plus the backelectromagnetic impulse of the loudspeaker via a reactive load. For the recording engineer, this provides a very consistent tone which is both repeatable and easily re-patched as needed.

Part of the magic is the tone shaping filters. This is designed to emulate a 4x12 half stack mic'd with a Shure SM57. The Reactor can be configured for 100 watt or 300 watt guitar amps and the frequency can be extended for bass use. During listening tests, we found that the Reactor worked best when used with a premium mic preamplifier such as the Radial PowerPre or a tradition Neve 1073 mic pre. Fizz(TM) control was introduced as a means to round out the harmonic generation and improve the sound when using the Reactor with lower cost mixing consoles and entry level mic preamps. Standard features include transformer isolated output, polarity reverse and ground lift. TheWorkhorse Omniport(TM) is implemented as aguitar-level direct out to feed a second amplifier,

effect device or signal splitter. And to further expand possibilities, you can connect a guitar directly to the Reactor by selecting the recessed front panel switch. This allows the Reactor's great sounding cabinet emulation filters to be used on virtually any source to add realism.

Radial MC3 monitor controller $249 is a studio tool that enables the engineer to quickly select between reference monitors, sub woofer or headphones and compare how the mix translates via various playback systems. Unique to the MC3 is the ability to quickly sum mono for AM radio compatibility.

And while most monitor switchers are active the MC3 is 100% passive. This means that unlike active switchers that introduce a buffered electronic circuit in between your recording system and monitors, the MC3 delivers straight wire performance. This eliminates coloration and distortion for more accurate monitoring.

The MC3 features an easy access level control that lets you quickly set playback levels on all speakers. Each output is equipped with a top-mount 'set & forget' dial to fine tune outputs for the ideal balance. The sub is augmented with a 180 degree polarity reverse to help deal with room modes that may cause a frequency bump in the mix position. A separate Dim switch is also adjustable to enable the engineer to temporarily drop the playback level without affecting the mix level settings. To address the ever increasing popularity of ear buds, the Radial MC3 is equipped with a built-in headphone amplifier with stereo 3.5mm (1/8" TRS) output along with two standard 1/4" headphone phone outs to share. The MC3 may be configured for either balanced or unbalanced setups.
