* Single space 4x1 line mixer for 500 series racks
circuit for low noise at all levels
* Virtual earth-mix bus
* Use with instruments and line level sources
The Submix is an ultra quiet 4 x 1 mixer module designed to fit the 500
series format and enable the studio engineer to combine multiple audio stems
such as line level devices and effects together and route them as needed. The
Submix is also ideally suited for keyboards, samplers and drum machines where
these need to be mixed into the audio chain.
The design begins with four conveniently located ¼" unbalanced inputs on
the front panel. Separate level controls for each input are clearly designated
for easy manipulation. These are equipped with Radial's unique dual-gang
Accustate circuit that simultaneously sets the input sensitivity and the gain to
maximize signal-to-noise. This enables both instrument and line level signals to
easily be interfaced without the need for a typical level reducing pad.
Following the Radial Workhorse and classic mixer designs pioneered by Neve and
SSL, the Submix employs a traditional virtual-earth mix-buss circuit topology.
This delivers exceptionally quiet performance even when several Submix modules
are combined via the Omniport mix-buss input.
The single-space Submix may be used alone, or doubled-up for full stereo
operation. When used with a 3-slot Radial Powerstrip, you can instantly assemble
a 12 x 1 keyboard mixer for live use. With a full-blown Workhorse, you can go as
far as building a 32x2 analog summing mixer or combine various modules to create
unique multi-band effects.
The Radial Submix is an innovative studio tool designed to manage audio
signals and open the door to creative new patching options.
