Protect Your Performances with This Auto-switcher!

The Radial SW8 auto-switcher gives you peace of mind, allowing you to automatically switch between two 8-channel sources - a real lifesaver for critical live recording or playback applications. If you use backing tracks or sound effects in your productions, a rock-solid system is a necessity. Using the SW8 ensures your redundant system is put online effectively; it's able to detect a machine malfunction and switch to a backup machine seamlessly. Incredibly easy to set up and built tough for the road, the SW8 auto-switcher is a toolbox essential!

Radial SW8 Auto-switcher at a Glance:
  • Automatic switcher
  • Easy to use

Automatic switcher
The Radial SW8 auto-switcher provides redundant backup by automatically switching between two 8-channel sources such as a pair of digital recorders. Designed primarily for live concerts and stage shows where backing tracks are used for orchestration, backing chorals and sound effects, the SW8 can detect a machine malfunction and automatically switch to a second backup machine to ensure a seamless performance.

Easy to use
Using the SW8 is easy! Connect your two sync'd playback systems and record a steady drone on track-1. If the tone disappears, the SW8's front panel red LED will illuminate to let you know trouble is at hand. If you like, have the SW8 trigger an alarm, trip a contact closure or have it automatically switch to your second machine. For larger systems, the SW8 may be expanded by linking machines together using a simple instrument cable. It's also built road tough, with a heavy-duty 14-gauge steel enclosure.

Radial SW8 Auto-switcher Features:
  • Auto-switch between two 8-channel systems
  • Expandable and remote controllable
  • Mic- and line-level operation
  • Transformer-isolated XLR mic outputs
  • Full manual override with foot control
The Radial SW8 Auto-switcher gives your productions added reliability!
