  • 1Description

The Radial Engineering EXTC-500 Guitar Effects Studio Interface enables creatively inclined engineers to introduce guitar pedals into the signal chain. The EXTC Studio Interface takes a balanced signal, unbalances it and reduces the level so that it can properly interface with hi-Z guitar pedals. Once the signal is processed, this studio interface reverses the process by taking the unbalanced signal and reconverts it back to a +4 dB balanced line level signal for easy manipulation in the professional recording environment. This, for instance, lets you add wah to a kick drum, tube distortion to a vocal track, or maybe an old-school tape echo to an acoustic guitar. As pedals can be noisy, the EXTC Studio Interface is transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. A 180° polarity reverse ensures that the wet-dry mix is in phase.

Blend Control
Adjusts the wet-dry mix between the original unprocessed signal and the EXTC's effects loop
180º Polarity
Lets you reverse the polarity of the wet signal path and bring it into phase with the dry signal when they are being mixed together
Omni Insert
Turns the Omniport insert jack into a second send & receive path for additional processing
Send & Receive
For adjusting the send level to the pedals and return path level back into the EXTC to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio
¼" Send & Receive
