Radial Engineering JDX Reactor Speaker Simulator
Radial Engineering has introduced the JDX Reactor module, a combination speaker simulator and direct recording interface designed for the 500 Series format.
The JDX Reactor module is an interface designed to capture both the sound of the guitar head and the speaker cabinet. This is achieved by introducing a reactive load that captures the sound of the head, as well the back-electromagnetic impulse from the loudspeaker. The signal is then processed via a multi-stage band pass filter that emulates the tone of a 4x12 half stack cabinet.
While the original JDX stand-alone is designed primarily for stage use, the JDX Reactor module adds several more options for the recording environment. This includes an onboard low pass filter designed to let you tame excessively bright amplifiers, a low frequency extension to replicate the tone of a 15-inch driver when recording bass and a high output setting that switches the JDX Reactor module from 100 watts to 300 watts for really big amps.
The JDX Reactor module can also be set to “guitar mode” to let you connect a guitar directly into the module to use the speaker cabinet emulation filters. This can be supplemented by adding a distortion or overdrive, making it suited to lay down tracks without having to set up a guitar amp or microphones.
The JDX Reactor module features 100 percent discrete electronics throughout, transformer isolation to help eliminate ground loops and a fully shielded back box to help eliminate stray fields from entering the device or polluting others that may be nearby inside the 500 rack.
