Radial Engineering Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, announces the Submix 4x1 mixer ($350), its latest 500 Series module. It has four front-mounted ¼-inch input connectors with individual level controls and employs Radial's dual-gang Accustate input circuit, which at once lets users adjust sensitivity with gain and enables the Submix to be used with low level instruments and high output line level sources without the need for a level reducing pad.

Radial states that the Radial Submix 4x1 module is backward compatible with older 500 Series formats, is super quiet, delivers great sound, can be expanded at will and provides tremendous patching flexibility.

The mixer itself follows the same virtual-earth mix bus design as pioneered by classic console makers such as Neve and SSL. This enables the Submix to be cascaded without adding noise to create larger 8x1, 12x1 or 40x1 mix formats, depending on the number of modules in play and the Workhorse power rack in use. For example, this enables a 3-slot Radial Powerstrip to be converted into a 12x1 keyboard mixer for live use. Using two Submix modules side by side opens the door for stereo applications such as tape returns, digital samplers, stereo effects and analog summing.

As with all Radial products the Submix is made in Canada using solid steel and finished in a baked enamel to ensure longer life; plus, the added shielding of the fully enclosed design is said to help reduce noise from outside electro-magnetic pollution. Inside, steel potentiometers connect to a double sided military grade PCB with an RF resistant full-surface ground plane. Double sided gold contacts assure a positive connection inside the rack.
