Radial Engineering Debuts Studio-Q, a Compact Talk-Back/Cue System

Radial Engineering has introduced the Studio-Q, a super-compact desktop talk-back and cue system that can be moved from site to site.

Radial said the Studio-Q begins with a simple cue switch that turns on the built-in microphone 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 and features a variable level control on the front panel.

"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."

Price of the Studio-Q is $259.99.
