Product Description

The Radial X-Amp is an active Reamper(tm) that allows the engineer to play a pre-recorded track back through guitar amplifiers and pedals. This opens the door to explore musical sounds and spur on the creative process so that your recording stands out. Reamping works equally well on bass, keyboards, drums and voice. Once you start Reamping, you will never record any other way.

Using the X-Amp is Easy...

Start by recording a dry track using a high quality direct box like the Radial J48. Send the 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, sounds and textures can be created while allowing you to make artistic decisions as the recording progresses.

Try sending a vocal track into a Marshall amp or a Tonebone Classic to add tube warmth and grit. Take it a step further by sending your kick drum to a wah pedal. There are no limits!

Class-A Circuit Design

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 180-degree polarity reverse switch to bring both amps into phase, and a dual ground lift switch for noise-free operation.

Built Like a Tank

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.

The Radial X-Amp -- the active Reamp for professional recording engineers.

Features:

- Active Re-amping device with two outputs
- 100% discrete class-A signal path
- Transformer-isolated to eliminate noise
- Variable "set & forget" level control

zZounds Expert Review
These Re-amp boxes are a great little tool that I recommend for both project and professional studios, especially for tracking electric string instruments. If you are as indecisive as me when it comes to getting an awesome guitar tone while tracking, this little box gives you some options for literally re-amplifying your guitar's signal. Say you've got your recording interface or good 'ole reel-to-reel recorder: a Fender Twin, and some no-name, low wattage, vintage tube combo hanging around the studio. Before this nifty little box, you'd have to go about laying down a rhythm track on the Twin and then the solo section on the little combo over a few different takes. Now with this Radial X-AMP you can go right to the recorder with your guitar, nail the song in one take, and then send your signal out to the Twin for the rhythm parts, and the leads over to the no-name combo in your DAW. Or, send the whole track to each amp and layer them over each other for a thicker, identical track in the mix. This gives you a bunch of options for loading up your tracks with the tone of your choice. The Radial X-Amp Re-Amplifier is a handy and creative tool, and these are definitely a great consideration for the player or engineer that has a room full of amps and wants to track or compare them all.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
