Scenarios and Applications Recording a Dry Track: The X-Amp 500 allows you to use Radials 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 Radials 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 doesnt 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.

Even with advanced Radial manufacturing techniques, it isn’t possible to automate the production of great instruments like this Radial Workhorse X-Amp-500 500 Series Reamper. 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.
