Radial Workhorse X-Amp-500 500 Series Reamper

Details
Getting the perfect guitar tone has never been easier. The Radial X-Amp-500 allows you to pre-record a dry guitar signal, then feed up to two amplifiers simultaneously using the convenient 1/4'' guitar-level outputs on the front panel.

When you want to retain the natural and dynamic feel of a guitarist playing live, but you want to tweak the tone to fit within your mix and soundscape, reamping is your best friend. The X-Amp-500 boasts simple 'plug and play' operation, and lets you take advantage of the in-built features of your exisitng 500 Series rack system. When used with the Workhorse rack, you have instant access to the OmniPort input which acts as a hi-Z guitar input for the X-Amp, allowing you to record dry guitar signals, or distribute the signal to your amplifiers. The X-Amp buffers and unbalances your signal, allowing you to feed amps up to 50 feet away without signal loss. The Radial X-Amp-500 is the perfect tool for achieving incredible tone without the hassle of re-recording guitar parts over and over again.

Scenarios and Applications

  • Recording a Dry Track: The X-Amp 500 allows you to use Radial's proprietary OmniPort input when used with the Workhorse 500 Series rack system. This input is configured to be used as a Hi-Z guitar input for the X-Amp 500. Plug your guitar into the OmniPort input, and feed guitar amps using the front panel 1/4'' outputs whilst sending the dry guitar signal from the XLR output connector on the back of your Workhorse into your DAW.
  • Reamping: You can take the pre-recorded dry track you recorded through the X-Amp or any other recording setup and send it to your X-Amp 500 via the XLR input on your 500 Series rack. The signal can be fed from Out-1 and Out-2 to your guitar amps so you can mic up the amplifiers and record them for new tonal and creative possibilities with the same feel and response as if the guitarist was right there.
  • Using the X-Amp as a Distributor: Simply connect your guitar to the OmniPort on your Workhorse 500 Series rack system, and you can then send your guitar signal out to two amplifiers using Out-1 and Out-2 up to 50 feet away.

Reviews

"The X-Amp makes everything easy, flawless, and super clean when routing recorded signals to actual amplifiers positioned in nice rooms and captured by good mics. Yum. The dual outputs even let me transform a boring mono guitar track into a layered and sexy wide-stereo sound through two different amps." - GuitarPlayer Magazine - Workhorse and X-Amp Review.

"The X-Amp is Radial's best known and most popular reamplification device. The biggest difference is that it is an active device and capable of driving a pair of amps at one time. It is easy to use and sounds like the 'real thing'." - Recording Magazine - X-Amp 500 Review.

"Radial shows that the 500 series concept doesn't have to be limited to processors like EQ or compressors. These specialty devices are designed for a wide range of tasks." - electronicMUSICIAN - Workhorse 500 Series Review.

"The X-Amp is a Reamp box that allows you to send recorded DI signal back to two separate amplifiers simultaneously. Clean Reamping and useful splitter functions." - Resolution Magazine - Radial 500 Series and X-Amp Review.
