Radial Engineering Wr-8 Rack 8 Slot Power …

Radial Engineering Wr-8 Rack 8 Slot Power  ...Radial Engineering – Radial Engineering Wr-8 Rack 8 Slot Power Rack
The Workhorse WR-8 is a trimmed down version of the Tec Award winning Workhorse power rack without the 8-channel summing mixer. This enables those that may not need a mixer to join in the fun while leaving the door open to upgrade in the future.Like the Workhorse, the WR8 features eight slots to accommodate both Radial modules and other API Lunchbox compatible modules. An innovative slide-in tray makes loading modules easy! Rear connections include XLR and 1/4″ TRS inputs and outputs plus parallel connections via D-Subs. Unlike older API type racks that need to be hard patched, the WR8 features an innovative FEED switch that lets you connect modules in series by simply setting the switch to suit. This leaves the other connectors open for mult’ing, parallel processing and cross patching.Stereo-ready modules such as compressor-limiters no longer need to have inside traces soldered! A simple LINK switch performs the connection and lets you revert back to normal without de-soldering. Radial also upgraded the 500 series spec with Omniport, a 1/4″ TRS connector that enables the manufacturer to assign a special module-specific function to increase functionality. Radial modules employ the Omniport in a variety of ways. For instance, the PowerPre assigns the Omniport as an instrument input, the Komit is a key input for the side chain and the JDV-Pre uses it as a direct box output for stage use.The WR8 provides extra power to the modules for more headroom with over 1600 milliamps of shared power for the 8 slots. This enables you to use power hungry devices like tube preamps with confidence. The external supply makes international travel easy with 100V to 240V compatibility and the use of a standard IEC connector. To keep modules safe, the WR8 is equipped with protective circuitry to prevent mishap should improper connections be made.500 series power rack with room for 8 modulesUpgrades to full Workhorse with optional mixer100% compatible with older API type racksOver 20% more current than the original spec

Radial Engineering Space Heater 500 Series …

Radial Engineering Space Heater 500 Series  ...Radial Engineering – Radial Engineering Space Heater 500 Series Tube Drive
Designed for use in the Radial Workhorse or any other 500 series rack, the Space Heater is built around a 12AX7 tube. First, a drive control lets you determine the amount of signal passing through the tube. Next, a 3-position heat switch allows you to apply 35, 70 or 140 volts at the plate to change how the tube reacts to the signal. At the low 35V setting the tube is starved for voltage which causes the tube to break up at a very low volume. The middle 70V setting is a great starting point and allows the tube to handle more level before breaking up to a moderate distortion. At 140 volts, maximum voltage is applied to the tube producing slight saturation and warmth. Sweepable high-pass and low-pass filters can be assigned ‘pre or post’ tube, allowing you to focus the tube effect on a particular frequency band or cause the tube to react in a different way. Finally, an output level control provides attenuation or boost through an oversized Jensen transformer specially selected for its big bottom end and vintage character.Enhancing a snare with a touch of distortion can increase presence without losing dynamic range. Blending in some overdrive to a bass track can add clarity without overpowering. Adding distortion to a vocal track can add character and sizzle to cut through the mix without over-compression. The Space Heater 500’s amazing ‘adjustability’ allows it to be used as a subtle effect or as a high gain monster. And no matter your approach, it is sure to find its way on nearly everything you record.Studio grade 12AX7 tube overdrive35, 70 & 140 volt Heat switch to set plate B+ voltageTransformer coupled output for vintage toneVariable HPF & LPF filters to focus distortion

Radial Engineering Headload Guitar Amp Load …

Radial Engineering Headload Guitar Amp Load  ...Radial Engineering – Radial Engineering Headload Guitar Amp Load Box 16 Ohms
The Headload is a combination load box and attenuator that is capable of handling up to 130-watts RMS of continuous power and peaks of 180 watts. Inserted between the head and cabinet, it allows the guitar amp to be driven hard while reducing the output level to reduce the sound pressure on stage or provide the means for quiet recording in the studio. This enables the artist to optimize the tone from the guitar amplifier without having to perform at ear-blistering levels.The 100% discrete fan-cooled design begins with a series of cement encrusted, epoxy coated copper resistor coils that are controlled via a 6-position rotary switch to set the desired power reduction from 100% down to 20%. A trim control provides fine adjustment when below 20%. The Headload output can be turned off for quiet on-stage use, recording or when practicing using the built-in headphone amplifier.In order to ensure greater consistency from gig to gig, the Headload is equipped with a Radial JDX Reactor direct box. This captures both the signal from the head plus the reactive load from the speaker cabinet for a more natural tone. The JDX has gained tremendous popularity with users as diverse as Megadeth, Aerosmith, Rascal Flatts, Sting and Radiohead.For engineers that prefer to combine a direct feed with a microphone, the Headload has also been equipped with a Radial Phazer phase adjustment tool. This lets you time-align the JDX direct feed with the microphone to deliver incredibly natural tones, or when pushed to extreme, create over the top effects. The JDX direct output may also be tailored to suit with a 6-position voicing switch to select from various cabinet emulation presets and fine tuned using a 2-band EQ to tame overly bright amps.Available now in 8 ohms, the Headload is possibly the most useful load box ever made.Radial JDX Reactor and Phazer for direct recordingDelivers great tone from your amp at low volumeFront vents allow cool air to circulate, driving by rear-mounted fanShelving EQ Control used to fine-tune the JDX output to suit your recording or live monitoring needsRemovable handle for rack mountingAnalog phase-shift control lets you adjust between 0-180 degrees and 181-360 degreesResonance enhacnes the EQ curve to compensate for the tone shift when the speaker level is reducedRange Control knob lets you fine-tune the power level when set below 20% for greater controlLoad Control knob is a six-positions rotary switch that sets the power reduction from 100% down to OFFRotary switch lets you chose between six cabinet emulation prest curves180/360 button toggles the phase shift from 0-180 to 181-360 degreeHeadphone outPhase adjustment toolAnalog phase-shift control lets you adjust between 0-180 to 181-360 degree1/4″ out jack for connection to amp1/4″ out jacks for connecting to speaker cab1/4″ in jacks for connection from guitarRever

Radial Engineering Q4 Four Band  ...Radial Engineering – Radial Engineering Q4 Four Band Semi-Parametric Eq
The Radial Q4 is a unique equalizer that combines the warmth and detail of a pure class-A circuit with the character of true 100% discrete state-variable filters. In other words, no integrated circuits are employed whatsoever. Each full size through-hole part is carefully inserted by hand and then wave soldered to ensure optimal signal flow. This produces a level of sonic warmth and musicality that excels above the others.Designed to fit in the Radial Workhorse and other 500 series racks, the Q4 features four frequency bands with high and low shelving at 10kHz and 100Hz and two semi-parametric mid sections that let you sweep frequencies from 300Hz to 8kHz. The two mid-bands can be further optimized by selecting either a wide or narrow Q. All frequencies may be cut or boosted by up to 12dB – affording plenty of range. A handy ‘bypass’ switch lets you compare the dry tone with the EQ’s effect and for those equipped with a Workhorse, the Omniport is designated as an unbalanced 1/4″ TRS input/output connection that can be inserted into a console channel strip using a single TRS cable.This makes the Q4 a wonderful choice for adding analog character to a voice or instrument and a natural for enhancing music program material.Four band semi-parametric equalizer100% discrete class-A state-variable filtersSounds exceptionally warm and naturalFits all standard 500 series power racks
