At NAMM: Radial Ships KL-8 Keyboard Mixer/Digital IO

The unit can handle up to four keyboards at once.

Anaheim, CA (January 24, 2019)—Radial Engineering’s new KL-8, a rackmount professional keyboard mixer and digital interface, is now shipping.

The KL-8 is a mixing station intended for keyboardists. Users can connect up to four keyboards in mono or stereo, with level controls, aux sends, and signal/clip LED indicators for each. A stereo aux send/receive channel is available to feed rackmount reverbs, delays, and effects pedals, or it can be used as an additional input for a fifth keyboard.

The KL-8 is also a digital interface with 24-bit/192 kHz digital audio converters, utilizing MIDI and USB connections that aid controling a laptop soft-synth. An optional JR1-L remote footswitch can be employed to switch between the USB inputs.

The output section includes two sets of transformer-isolated outputs to feed the PA system and a pair of powered monitors, with individual level controls and mono sum switches to accommodate for limited channel availability.

Dual 1/4″ headphone outputs are also included for local monitoring and testing. A cue system allows any keyboard input to be muted from the overall mix and fed directly to the headphones to silently check patch settings without feeding signal to the audience. Multiple KL-8s can be linked to accommodate even larger keyboard setups.
