Radial Engineering R800 1420 Overview

The EXTC-SA Guitar Effects Reamp Interface from Radial Engineering is a standalone audio interface that lets you incorporate guitar effects into pro-audio recording. This unit is easy to use; just connect a line-level signal from the recording system. The unit unbalances the signal and converts it to high impedance where guitar pedals can be inserted at will. Simply plug in, turn the track on, set your levels, and adjust the blend for adding various effects to your track.

It includes Radial's 100% discrete class-A guitar buffering for ultimate audio integrity, transformer isolation to eliminate buzz and hum caused by ground loops, 180º polarity reverse to keep effects and balanced signals in phase, and 2 loops that will let you compare signal paths or combine them to create your own sounds.

Two effects loops with easy to compare bypass switches
Lets you put those old pedals to use
Send and receive controls adjust the level going to the pedals and sensitivity of the receive input to optimize signal-to-noise ratio
180º phase invert lets you compensate for effect devices that invert the polarity of the wet signal so it may be blended with the dry signal
Blend control lets you adjust the wet-dry mix between the original unprocessed signal and the EXTC's effects loop
EFX Loops A and B buttons are used to turn Loop-A and Loop-B on and off; two LED indicators illuminate when a loop is active
XLR Input jack receives the 4 dB signal from your recording system and converts it for hi-Z guitar effects
XLR Output jack sends a 4 dB signal back to your recording system for noise-free cable runs
Parallel 1/4" TRS jacks enable the EXTC to be used with balanced and unbalanced sources
1/4" send and receive jacks are used to connect guitar pedals to the EXTC
Transformer provides isolated send path to the effects to help eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops
Discrete class-A buffers for optimal signal flow and natural tone
I-Beam reinforced enclosure makes it difficult to torque the PC board & eliminates cold solder joints
Military-spec PCB with full ground plane for noise-free performance and double-sided for durability
Glass-filled nylon connectors are tough and bolted to the chassis for durability
Heavy-duty 14-gauge steel construction with durable baked-enamel finish
Full bottom no-slip pad provides electrical and mechanical isolation and keeps the unit from sliding around
Bookend design enclosure creates a protective zone around the front controls
Connection for the included power supply with handy cable clamp to prevent accidental disconnection
