Radial Introduces Studio Q Compact Talk-Back/Cue System

At AES 2016, Radial Engineering introduced Studio Q, an ultra compact desk-top talk back system for small audio studios.

Radial said the Studio Q begins with a simple cue switch that turns on the built-in microphone or the “producer” mic XLR input. Each mic is equipped with an individual trim control along with a master mic volume. These can also be remotely activated using a remote JR1 mute footswitch.

Once depressed, the signal is routed to the studio headphone system while it automatically shunts the program to the desired level. The program signal path is balanced for easy integration with any console with fully variable level control on the front panel.

When the audio is full-on, a remote output may be used to send a dry contact to a beacon and attract attention. This can also be set with DC power to accommodate a soon to be released LED beacon.

"With more and more recording happening in smaller studios, the need for a simple talk-back system has become evident,” said Peter Janis, Radial’s CEO. “Yes, there are other cue systems on the market, but most either have too many features, are too costly or are too large. The Studio Q manages to do it all in a super compact design."

The price of Studio Q is $299.99. Delivery begins this winter.
