Vancouver, Canada (June 8, 2020)—Radial Engineering has introduced its new HotShot 48V Microphone Switcher, intended for use in live sound scenarios.

Aiding private communication between performers and crew or each other, the Hotshot 48V footswitch allows a live performing artist to redirect a condenser or dynamic microphone signal away from the main house system to the stage monitoring or in-ear system for discrete communication.

The unit features a transformer-isolated XLR input and two independent XLR outputs. The balanced input accepts both mic and line-level sources, enabling the connection of microphones, an effects device, line-level output of a vocal processor, or any other balanced signal in the audio chain.

While the switcher is specifically designed to address issues when switching condenser microphone outputs, it works equally well with dynamic mics also. The unit is also noted to be “pop-less;” while passive audio switchers occasionally create an audible pop during switching due to the introduction of phantom power or by stray DC, the unit employs active circuitry and a time delay microcontroller for silent switching. A five-millisecond delay is introduced when the switching relay is activated, preventing audible noise.

The HotShot 48V’s footswitch operates in either momentary or Latch switching mode, and LED indicators display the selected output. 48V phantom is supplied, and the unit is powered by an included 9V PSU.

Canada (May 21, 2020)—Radial Engineering has shipped its new BT-Pro V2 Bluetooth DI. The unit is intended for feeding smartphones, tablets and other Bluetooth devices to a PA system, studio interface or powered speaker.

Expected applications include houses of worship, installed sound (gyms, dance studios), live sound, studio, DJ, presentations or any environment where providing music playback via Bluetooth connection is desired.

According to Radial, the new V2 edition of the BT-Pro provides “significantly improved audio quality and range.” Since many users need to connect multiple devices in a single room, each BT Pro-V2 ships with a unique ID. The new BT-Pro V2 can now be powered by either 48V phantom or a USB-C connection.

Like the original, the BT-Pro V2 includes an output level control with an output range from mic level to line level. It also features Mono-sum, Pair/Reset switches, and a 3.5 mm headphone output. An updated chassis design makes the BT-Pro V2 more durable and extends the Bluetooth connection range.

The BT-Pro V2 has a unique identifier that shows up as a six-digit numerical code, allowing users to connect an iPhone to the PA without having to search through drawers looking for wires.
