Radial-PreComp-three-quarter-498x600

It’s become like a 500 series module is every company’s go-to release format before any other hardware type – still, why not? The “lunchbox” revolution continues and Radial Engineering has announced the PreComp combination preamp and compressor. The PreComp is a single wide module, designed to fit the 500 series rack format. The design begins with a high performance preamp equipped with Radial’s Accustate gain control that simultaneously sets the output and sensitivity to maximise signal-to-noise at all levels. A full-feature compressor follows with adjustable threshold, compression ratio and make-up gain control that automatically transitions from soft-knee to hard-knee as compression increases. A simple slow-fast switch makes it easy to set the PreComp for either percussion instruments or smoother tracks such as vocals. Once connected to a 500 series power rack, I/O connections automatically route to the XLRs for balanced operation. When used with a Workhorse, connectivity increases with ¼” TRS connectors and D-Subs and the Omniport provides direct patching to the preamp or the compressor, enabling the engineer to use each processor separately. Other features include 180° polarity reverse, a high pass filter, 48V phantom power and an IN/OUT switch that lets you quickly compare the original uncompressed signal with the processed result. The PreComp starts shipping in May 2013. More details at www.radialeng.com
