Desktop power supply
Following the criteria established by the Radial Workhorse, the Cube is 100% backwards compatible with older API modules while being optimized for Radial's expanding range of preamps, processors and routing devices. Construction begins with a 14 gauge steel frame and features dual gold contact EDAC 15-pin connectors for optimal signal transfer. To maximize headroom, the external supply delivers 500mA of current for power hungry modules plus a separate 48V phantom tap delivers a full 10mA of current for microphone preamps. Rear panel connectivity includes standard XLRs for each slot along with ¼" TRS connectors for multiple modules, cross patching and parallel processing. Instead of the traditional 'hardwire patch' system employed by others, The Cube employs an innovative feed function that patches modules together in series without the need of a cable. And stereo modules no longer need to be soldered to be paired, they can now be sync'd together using a simple switch. The Cube is also equipped with Omniport on each slot. This TRS jack enables the module manufacturer to implement a unique function for a given module such as a key input on a gate.
The ultimate channel strip
Create the ultimate channel strip by combining your favourite mic preamp, EQ and dynamic processor. Use the PowerPre for absolute clarity to feed a mic into the Q3 for color and the Komit to keep everything under control.
The perfect guitar front end
Record your guitar and bass direct using the JDV-Pre. Send the recorded track back out to the EXTC so that you can add effects pedals and then process the return signal through the JDX to emulate a Marshall 4x12 half stack.
Reamp for the ultimate tone
Send your pre-recorded clean track into the Radial X-Amp and out to your amplifiers and Reamp to your heart's content! Send the signal back through the EXTC to add effects or add the absolute cool of a spring reverb using the Tank Driver. Boing!
