The Cube with Guitar Modules

The allure of a 500 series box had finally gotten the better of me as I ordered in a Radial The Cube rack to demo. Being a 3 module rack I could co... read more [+]me up with a wide range of configurations, most of them revolving around a single channel strip of preamp, EQ, and compressor. The idea of a portable channel strip configured to my liking had me thinking, then I looked at my workflow and realized that I donít need that out of the cube, I would rather rack that. Then it hit me. A guitar toolbox! Something that is handy to bring down to a guitarists pedal board, or sit on top of an amp. Flipping through the Radial products I decided on the EXTC, Tank Driver, and X-Amp to fill the rack. The three of these would allow me to use just about every piece of a guitarists rig to sculpt my sound.
As I pulled The Cube out of the box the first thing I noticed was how well it is made. There is some definite heft to it as you hold it, a very solid piece. The top edges are beautifully rounded and the bottom is even and flat. The handle is not the most comfortable to hold especially when the rack is loaded, thou this is only a concern if you are traveling often with it. Due to the physical size of the unit there is not room for an internal power supply so the power supply is on a line wart style power adaptor. Thankfully Radial have provided a strong plug on a 4 pin XLR style end. Just donít loose the power adaptor.
The modules I chose, as I stated above, were the EXTC guitar effects interface, the Tank Driver spring reverb driver for connecting spring reverbs, and finally an X-Amp reamp module. Getting the modules in place was fairly straight forward, though it took me a couple attempts on each module to get the circuit board lined up with the slot in the back. Once in place the screw holes lined up perfectly and installation was complete. In my excited haste I initially installed the modules without much though to signal flow. I had installed them from left to right in this order, EXTC, X-Amp, and Tank Driver, based more on colour than anything. I later reordered them to be EXTC, Tank Driver, then X-Amp, as The Cube has a neat feed feature on the back that feeds the signal from one module to the next module on the right. close [-]
It Works for Me
by VL from San Diego, CAThis thing is making my life so much easier right now. I was using an A Designs two space rack that was fine, but the Radial Workhorse Cube is just so much easier for me to work with in my home studi... read more [+]o. Being able to easily turn it around to swap connections is awesome, and the feed function is just plain smart. It allows me to work faster.

Iím a fan of Radial because they seem to make products that work the way they should (even if other companies havenít taken the trouble to figure it out yet), and they donít put anything out that isnít well-designed, sturdy and reliable. The WH Cube is no exception. close [-]
