Radial Engineering PRO-D8 - Used
The Radial Engineering Pro-D8 is an 8-channel passive direct box perfect for keyboard rigs in professional touring setups. The Pro D8 design features fully redundant dual 1/4" inputs on all channels. These are summed together to allow the system tech to patch in a backup keyboard and have it on standby in case of failure with the first device. This also enables up to 16 keyboards or 8 stereo sets to be connected should the need arise. A (shared) 1/4" TRS effects insert jack on each channel allows two keyboards to share the same effect while adding greater routing options while 1/4" thru-put delivers a direct feed to the artist's playback system.
The engine inside is a custom wound Eclipse ET-DB2 transformer that performs both the impedance matching and balancing. Linear from 20Hz to 20kHz, able to withstand the extreme dynamics common with today's digital keyboards. Unlike active circuits that overload and square wave when the rail voltage is exceeded, transformers saturate. This means as the signal increases, the ProD8 naturally rounds out the tone producing a warm Bessel curve reminiscent of the best vintage audio gear. The other significant advantage to this passive design is 100% galvanic isolation between the source and destination. This eliminates hum and buzz caused by ground loops, resulting in a quieter stage.
