Reamp Your Guitar Tracks

One of the recording tricks used by the big studios is now available to everyone.

Radial Engineering has announced "Radial X-Amp" - which they say is the world's first 500 series Reamp - a device that simplifies the Reamping process for any studio.

According to Radial's 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 dual front panel mounted 1/4" outputs. It uses 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 that lets you 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 you to quickly reach over to fine-tune signal levels when recording.

You can also play through two amps simultaneously while avoiding the hum and noise problems that often happen by using it in conjunction with Radial's Workhorse.

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."

The list price is $300.00 but I found it at an online store for $249.99.
