The contemporary, intuitive operating concept includes an illuminated pattern display in the chrome ring, with the pad and low cut status LEDs positioned to the left and right. The switch and display are located on the rear of the microphone so as to not distract singers. After 15… View this post

    Radial Engineering has announced the Relay Xo, a microphone signal switcher that enables an artist to convert a vocal mic into a talk-back or communication mic in order to converse with system techs, monitor engineers or other band members. Radial president Peter Janis explains: “Over the past few years, live touring has shifted dramatically with the universal use of in-ear monitors. Artists no longer use wedge monitors and side fills, and every instrument is piped directly into the ears. The… View this post
