Radial CUBE

Desktop 500 Series Power Rack

»  View entire Radial Engineering range

Radial Engineering's CUBE™ is a 500 Series desk-top power supply designed to house 3 of Radial's continuously expanding range of processing modules whilst remaining compatible with older Lunchbox™ devices.

Unlike other 500 Series enclosures that are usually rack mounted, the Cube™ is designed to conveniently sit on a desktop, be carried around the studio or be recessed into the work surface. Two sets of flanges are supplied to either fully recess the Cube into the desktop or angle it at 30 degrees for optimal viewing. For those who want to optimise signal-to-noise, a carry handle makes it easy to move the Cube around the studio to position instrument & microphone pre’s as close to the source as possible.

"With the Cube, we really wanted to bring the fun and excitement of the 500 Series revolution to everyone. And being able to have modules sit on a desktop or be built into a work-station seemed like a great idea. Since the format is super easy to connect to, we believe it will serve as a great 'learning' platform for those who are new to the format." commented Radial’s president, Peter Janis.

Mounting modules is easy. Modules slide into position via the 15-pin EDAC connector which is wired to the original API standard. Unused pins feed the Omniport™ connector, an innovative feature that allows 500 Series manufacturers to personalize their modules by assigning the Omniport to perform module-specific tasks. This could, for instance, be a key input on a gate, an instrument input on a preamp or an effects send & receive port.

To add flexibility, the Radial Cube is equipped with standard XLR I/O’s and is supplemented with ¼” TRS connectors. These can be used as multi outputs or for cross-patching.

Once modules are inserted, an innovative feed switch replaces the old API patch cord system with an elegant solution that immediately sends the output from the first slot into the second and then to the third. And with three slots, the Cube makes it easy to create a channel strip by combining a Radial PowerPre preamp, Q3 coil EQ and a Komit compressor-limiter. For further flexibility, any two modules that are designed to be stereo-linked can be arranged this way by simply toggling a switch.

To ensure maximum signal handling, the Cube features an 800 milliamp external power supply. This provides more than 250 milliamps per module via a pooled supply to allow high demand devices such as the Radial PowerTube™ to be comfortably supplied while still providing sufficient current to feed two other standard modules.

The Radial Cube brings the power of 500 Series modules to desktops in an affordable, easy-to- use format and, as with all Radial products, is ultra roadworthy with a 14 gauge steel enclosure and top-of-the-line connectors throughout.
