Canada (February 5, 2021)—Radial Engineering has updated two professional guitar/amp signal managing switching stations with the introduction of new models — the JX44 V2 and JX42 V2.
The JX44 V2 is a single rack space 4-Instrument, 4-Amp and EFX Signal Manager, while the JX42 V2 is a single rack space 4-Instrument, 2-Amp Switching Station. Both units are intended to provide signal changeovers in a guitar, bass, or keyboard rig without noise or popping when switching instruments. Both units enable simultaneous connection and activation of up to four instruments or wireless receivers, with all inactive inputs automatically feeding a buffered Tuner output.
The JX44 V2 also functions as a guitar, amp and EFX signal manager, handling effects routing requirements, providing connections for a local stereo EFX loop and the ability to assign and remotely control individual EFX channels to any amplifier for wet/dry/wet setups. The unit sports Class A signal buffers on the inputs, accessible on either the front or back panel.
The JX44 V2 offers a direct output accessible via the back panel. Both units feature gold-contact connections and Jensen transformers on all outputs — two on the JX42 V2’s outputs and a total of seven on the JX44 V2 — including four on each output and one each on the JX44 V2’s SGI FX Loop Send and Receive, and the Direct Out. Additionally, the JX44 V2’s outputs feature ground lift and 180 polarity reverse switches.
Both units are MIDI controllable and feature remote control functionality via the optional Radial Engineering JR-5 remote footswitch. Additionally, the JX44 V2 offers A/B switching functionality via the Radial JR-2 dual remote footswitch. Both the JX44 V2 and JX44 V2 feature an Internal power supply that allows connectivity to standard IEC cables.
