Radial Workhorse PreComp Preamplifier and Compressor in the category
Potential Applications Post-Production Voice-Over Recording: The PreComp is the ideal solution for tracking vocals. Simply plug in your microphone set the microphone level and add the desired amount of compression for your recording Using In A Broadcast Studio: With intuitive operation the PreComp is perfect for on-air broadcasting applications. Set your level and add the desired amount of compression to maximise the voice and you are set. Modules such as a Q4 parametric EQ can be added into your signal chain for added tonal control thanks to the Omniport 1/4 TRS insert Using For Live Recording: The PreComp is an ideal front-end channel strip for live recordings allowing you to capture the signals straight from your mics whilst keeping the dynamics under control to prevent distortion. You can split the signal using the 1/4 TRS output on a Radial Workhorse system to feed a recording device and use the XLR out to feed a PA system Features Functions as both a microphone preamplifier and a compressor in a single 500 Series module Preamp stage can deliver in excess of 60dB to handle all types of microphones Equipped with Radials unique AccuState™ gain control AccuState™ maximizes the signal-to-noise at all levels Fully-featured VCA compressor with adjustable threshold ratio and make-up gain controls Advanced compression algorithm reads the program material and automatically transitions from soft-knee to hard-knee Simple slow-fast switch that allows easy optimization of the PreComp for either vocals or percussion Specifications Audio Circuit Type: AccuState™ input with true variable gain front end Frequency Response: 20Hz – 20kHz (-1.5dB at 20Hz) Dynamic Range: 112dB Gain: 55dB Total Harmonic Distortion: <0.003 percent Intermodulation Distortion: 0.03 percent Input Impedance: 3.3K Ohms Output Impedance: 300 Ohms Equivalent Input Noise: -120dBu Noise: -85dB at +40dB of gain Maximum Input: +24dBu Power: 56mA Conditions: For use in dry locations only between 5°C and 40°C Dimensions (L x W x D): 228mm x 159mm x 51mm / 9 x 625 x 2 Weight: 0.7kg / 1.5lbs Controls & Connectivity Gain (Preamp section): Used to set the gain of the microphone preamp section. The AccuState™ gain control sets the input sensitivity and gain at the same time to optimize the noise at all settings 180° Reverse: Inverts the polarity to help phase-align two microphones when recording in stereo High-Pass Filter: Gently rolls-off low frequencies below 100Hz to reduce rumble which can muddy up a recording LED Metering: The green and yellow LEDs let you know when the signal is below or above the threshold and compression is being applied. The red LED illuminates when the signal is near clipping Thresh: Variable threshold control used to set the point when the compression will take effect Ratio: Sets the compression ratio from 1:1 (off) up to 10:1 where a 10dB input produces 1dB at the output Gain (Compressor Section): Sets the output level of the compressor and is used to compensate for the gain reduction Slow-Fast: Sets the speed at which the compressor will take effect. When set to slow the initial transient such as a snap from a snare will pass without compression In: Turns the compressor on or off to compare the dry signal with the compressed results 48V Switch: Recessed switch design that prevents accidental powering on or off used to activate phantom power for condenser microphones and active DI boxes Phantom LED: Indicator illuminates when +48V phantom power is active Omniport™: Functions as a signal access point allowing the preamp and compressor sections to be used independently or to insert another processor like an EQ in between the two sections Omniport™ Switch: Turns the Omniport on and off. When off the preamp and compressor sections work in series. When on the Omniport TRS insert jack is switched into the signal path between the two sections

Even with advanced Radial manufacturing techniques, it isn’t possible to automate the production of great instruments like this Radial Workhorse PreComp Preamplifier and Compressor. The complexity of the task, combined with the need for constant awareness of the materials being used and the ability to adjust for minute variations, means that there is no substitute for the skill and sensitivity of experienced craftspeople.
Turning designs into great instruments isn’t easy. Technical drawings can’t convey the intended tone of an instrument, or the construction methodology required to create the desired characteristics and sound. Before building a new guitar can begin, the plans and intentions of the designers are discussed with the craftspeople at the factory in order to develop an appropriate production process. Every guitar is different, and coming up with the ideal production methodology and workflow for each guitar is critical.
