Vancouver BC - Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the Radial X-Amp™ the world's first 500 series Reamp... a device designed to simplify the Reamping process for any studio.

Radial Sales Manager Steve McKay: "Reamping is all about keeping options open. Instead of simply committing a guitar or bass track to one sound, you can later Reamp it so that it can better sit in the mix. And with today's digital recording systems and unlimited virtual track count, it has never been easier or more affordable to Reamp tracks. This has of course accelerated the interest in the original Radial X-Amp, ProRMP and the Reamp JCR. As the market leader, it only made sense that we be the first company to introduce a 500 series version. The X-Amp module follows the lead set by the stand-alone Radial X-Amp™ but has a few extra features to make it particularly useful in small, single room recording environments."

The Radial X-Amp 500 is a Reamper with two conveniently mounted front panel 1/4" outputs. It features 100% discrete class A circuitry for the most natural tone. Both instrument outputs are transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. This is supplemented with a ground lift switch and 180ยบ polarity reverse than enables the engineer to bring the two amplifiers in phase. This is particularly useful when guitar pedals are introduced as they will often reverse the phase of the signal. Variable output controls allow the engineer to quickly reach over to fine-tune signal levels when recording.

To add greater flexibility, when the X-Amp module is used with a Radial Workhorse™, the Omniport becomes a guitar input allowing the X-Amp module to be used as a two channel guitar distro, thus enabling one to play through two amps without the hum, buzz and noise problems that usually occur.

McKay continues: "Once you start Reamping, you will never go back to recording any other way. The magic lies in capturing the track and then using amps and pedals to optimize the tone while allowing you to move mics around the studio to find the sweet spot. This is the advantage that big budget studios have had all along. Only today, the Radial X-Amp module brings Reamping to the masses."
