Radial Engineering Tossover
Radial Engineering introduces the Tossover, a 500 series module that lets you to divide the frequency bands of an audio signal.
This enables you to separately process lows and highs or combine the two in series to create a band-pass filter.
The front panel sports two sets of controls whereby one set is focused on the mid and high frequencies, while the other separates the mid and bass frequencies so that each can be processed individually. The frequency knob lets you adjust the cut-off point and the amplitude knob is used to adjust the signal level. To intensify the effect, each frequency divider is equipped with a three position filter that may be set with a 12, 18 or 24 dB per octave slope. This enables the Tossover to also work double duty as an elaborate filter to either warm up tracks or reduce unwanted resonance. A handy front panel switch enables the two filters to be combined in series to create a band-pass filter to enhance the mid-range on a lead guitar track or make a snare stand out.
The Tossover may be used with any 500 series rack via the XLR in/out connections. When used with a Radial Workhorse, the functionality is enhanced by allowing both of the frequency bands to be processed simultaneously whereby the low-pass filter stem can be directed to the XLR out and the high-pass filter stem sent to the Omniport. A miniature slider switch near the card edge connector allows the user to toggle the output as needed.
