Radial Engineering Submix
Radial Engineering announces the Submix 4x1 mixer, the latest in the company's family of 500 series modules.
The design begins with four front-mounted ¼" input connectors with individual level controls. But unlike a traditional mixer that requires a separate input pad and level control, the Submix employs Radial's dual-gang Accustate input circuit that at once lets you adjust sensitivity with gain.
This enables the Submix to be used with low level instruments and high output line level sources without the need for a level reducing pad, the company says. The mixer itself follows the same virtual-earth mix buss design as shown in classic console makers such as Neve and SSL. This is designed to enable the Submix to be cascaded without adding noise to create larger 8x1, 12x1 or even 40x1 mix formats - depending on the number of modules in play and the Workhorse power rack being used.
This for instance enables a 3-slot Radial Powerstrip to be converted into a 12x1 keyboard mixer for live use. Using two Submix modules side by side opens the door for stereo applications such as tape returns, digital samplers, stereo effects and analog summing.
