Little Labs Redeye

in the tradition of creating unique tools for the pro audio engineer,
Little Labs introduces the Redeye. The Redeye is a passive direct box/re-amp
box with unique expansion capabilities. The high quality passive direct
box in the Red Eye features phase reverse and earth lift. At the push
of a button, the Red Eye converts from a direct box into a re-amp box
with its own input and output connectors. The re-amp in the Red Eye features
earth lift, phase reverse, and level control.
Daisy-chaining multiple rack-mountable Redeyes (4 units fit a single rackspace),
with the supplied expansion in and out rear jacks, and front panel expansion
button, opens up the further creative potential of the Redeye. Multiple
guitar level impedance outputs can be created from a single balanced line
level source, allowing you to correctly interface multiple vintage effect
pedals or re-amp to multiple guitar amps. When used with a quality active
direct box, the Redeye creates a superb quality guitar level/impedance
multiple output guitar splitter with as many outputs as Redeyes. Other
uses of the Red Eye include: Interfacing a wireless guitar receiver with
a guitar amp (restores the tone associated with plugging your guitar directly
into the amp) and, for owners of the Little Labs PCP Distro, the Red Eye
can work as an extra remote-able transformer isolated output.
The heart of the Red Eye is a Little Labs custom wound transformer. This
transformer was chosen for its sonic characteristics and is made with
the same core material and winding technique as the legendary UTC transformers
found in many classic pro audio devices. Red Eye is a smart, flexible
audio tool to aid audio engineers in all stages of production.
in is the passive direct box instrument input, this can be configured
to disconnect the rear instrument in jack when used in a fixed rack
selects whether the redeye works as a passive direct box or a re-amp
in selects whether the re-amp source is the rear female xlr or the rear
expansion in trs jack (for use with other redeyes as a multi out re-amp
or guitar splitter)
invert is a simple polarity reversal as you would find on a mixing console.
Out is 0 degrees, in is 180 degrees.
lift, when the redeye is used as a passive direct box, lifts the ground
(pin 1) of the output male xlr. When used as a re-amp, it lifts the
ground (sleeve) of the re-amp out jack.
- Pad is
an internal push switch reachable by a thin screwdriver to select the
reamp in pad for +4dB (pad in). Pad in is used when the redeye is used
as an extra output for the PCP, or with any +4dB line level inputs.
Pad out is for use with low level devices such as an active DI without
level adjusts the guitar level/impedance output level, if used as an
extra output for the PCP full up is unity.
out is the guitar level /impedance output jack for feeding guitar amps
or vintage effects.
