The Radial X-Amp is an active Reamper™ that allows the engineer to play
a pre-recorded track back through guitar amplifiers and pedals. This opens the
door to explore new musical sounds and spur on the creative process so that your
recording stands out.
Using the X-Amp is easy: start by recording a dry track using a high
quality direct box like the Radial J48. Send the new track from your recorder
via the X-Amp to your guitar amps, effect pedals or combinations thereof. Once
the basic track has been recorded, replacing or adding tracks can be done well
after the session player has gone home. This eliminates tiresome repetition and
assures a fresh vibrant performance on the final recording. Furthermore, by
driving two amps at the same time, new sounds and textures can be created while
allowing you to make artistic decisions as the recording progresses.
Following the critically acclaimed Radial JD7 Injector, the X-Amp employs a
unique class-A circuit design that has been optimized for use with guitars.
Features include balanced line level input with LED peak indicator and level
control, class-A circuit topology for optimal reach and frequency response, a
transformer isolated output to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops, a
180º polarity reverse switch to bring both amps into phase, and a dual ground
lift switch for noise-free operation.
As with all Radial products, the X-Amp is built like a tank to provide
years of trouble-free performance. An internal I-beam skeleton provides maximum
protection against external stress which could cause solder points to fail. This
is supplemented with an innovative bookend design that creates a protective zone
around the switches, potentiometer and connectors. A full bottom no-slip pad
performs double duty by keeping the X-Amp from sliding around when placed on a
vibrating amplifier while also providing electrical and mechanical isolation.
Reamping works equally well on bass, keyboards, drums and voice. Once you start
Reamping, you will never record any other way.
The Radial X-Amp… the active Reamp® for professional recording
"In today's studio sessions, you need to be able to great sounds
quickly. From tracking to overdubs to mixing, the Radial X-Amp is used at every
step along the way. I know I can count on Radial for great sound and
