Radial Engineering R700 0122 overview

  • 1Description

The Radial Engineering JDX 500 Reactor Speaker Simulator Module is a guitar amplifier interface that captures the combined effect of an amplifier and speaker cabinet. It emulates the sound of a 4x12 guitar amplifier speaker by way of a multi-stage filtering mechanism and can also be used for direct instrument recording.

There’s also a Guitar Mode on the JDX 500 Reactor Module that allows you to bypass amplifiers and speakers altogether. Just plug in a guitar via effect pedals and then output directly to your recording equipment—the filtering mechanism does all the hard work.

When used with an amplifier and speaker, it captures the tone of the sound delivered from the amp head as well as the electromagnetic pulse generated by the speaker using a reactive load. The module then processes the signal and emulates the sound of a 4x12 half-stack, which can be directly output to a recording system, eliminating the need to set up or move amplifiers, microphones, and other studio equipment.

Also included is a variable low-pass filter control that lets you adjust the tone and add more lower frequencies to the sound being generated. This will enable you to lend more warmth to the sound from amplifiers that lean towards the higher end of the frequency range.

You can also use a mic to record alongside the JDX 500 Emulator—the module has a 180° polarity reverse mode that inverts its output to align polarities with the microphone’s signal. This lets you combine the two signals easily while mixing.

There’s also a Low Frequency Extension feature that extends the frequency response from 200 to 100Hz and adds more bass to the sound. The JDX 500 Reactor Module is encased in a fully shielded steel case and can be installed in the Radial Workhorse or other 500 series module power packs.

Note: The JDX module is not a load box. It must be connected to a speaker or load box when used with a guitar amp head.
