Anaheim, CA (January 19, 2017)—At the NAMM Convention, Radial Engineering is presenting its new two-part desktop talk-back/cue system, comprised of the Studio-Q and the Beacon LED indicator. (Sold separately.)
Intended for smaller studios, the simple talk-back system is designed to offer the basics in a compact design. The Studio-Q is based around a cue switch that turns on the built-in microphone or the 'producer' mic XLR input. Each mic is equipped with an individual trim control along with a master mic volume.
Once depressed, the signal is routed to the studio headphone system while it automatically shunts the program to the desired level. The program signal path is balanced for integration with any console with fully variable level control on the front panel. When the band is full-on, a remote output may be used to send a dry contact to a beacon and attract attention.
The Studio-Q can also be set with DC power to accommodate the Radial Beacon. The Beacon is a compact LED indicator for use in recording studio live rooms and isolation booths. The Beacon lights up when the talkback mic is engaged, providing visual feedback to musicians when the engineer/producer is talking, and letting anyone without headphones on know that the talkback is live.
Connection to the Beacon is made via a 2-position Phoenix connector, which ships with the unit. This can be affixed to a length of cable with a connector at the other end to link to the Studio-Q.
