Radial Releases 500 Series PhazeQ Adjustment Tool
Radial has released PhazeQ, a dual function 500-series device. As a phase alignment tool, it is used to time-align two microphones for greater clarity and realism. It also behaves like a very powerful EQ that lets you create exciting new tones that will set your recordings apart.
Designed to work with the Radial Workhorse and other 500 series racks, the PhazeQ features 100% discreet class-A electronics for a claimed warm rich, natural tone. A single control lets you adjust phase shift from 0°ree; to 180º and clever application of a 180ºpolarity reverse extends the range to a full 360º. To further focus the effect on the fundamentals, a low-pass filter may be engaged to remove high frequency content. This is split into two ranges for added precision.
The applications are diverse: a close mic and a distant room mic on a guitar amplifier; an XY pair on an acoustic guitar; the batter head and outside of a kick drum; or combining a mic’d bass cabinet with a direct feed. The PhazeQ differs from the original Phazer with the addition of a wet-dry blend control. The PhazeQ innovates by taking a single source and splitting the signal to allow you to combine the original sound with the phase shifted signal to deliver an all new type of EQ.
