The Radial Shuttle is a combination effects insert and routing module that enables you to bring playback tracks, effects and other non-Radial modules into the Workhorse. This opens the doors to tremendous patching options that would otherwise require complex wiring.
The design begins with an input feed via the Workhorse or other 500 series rack. This feeds two front panel insert loops. The first is fully balanced to make interfacing with +4dB studio gear quick and efficient while taking full advantage of the lower noise affo0rded by a true balanced insert. The second loop is unbalanced for -10dB operation. This is the most common form of insert found in studio workstation environments. A third loop can be accessed via the Omniport for those that are equipped with a Workhorse. Each is equipped with an individual insert on-off selector that allows the effects to be compared.
Where the Shuttle really begins to get interesting is when using the Workhorse for real-time playback. A feed from the recorder is sent to the Shuttle where the program track can be auditioned at the same time as a new recording track without latency of any kind. One simply routes the mic preamp and shuttle to one of the 8 channels while auditioning via the main, monitor or headphone outputs.
The Shuttle makes connecting effects to your 500 series rack quick, easy and super effective.
