Premax Preamp 500 Series.

Radial Workhorse PreMax

The Radial Workhorse PreMax Channel Strip combines an ultra low-noise mic preamp with an incredibly musical-sounding 3-band EQ in a single 500 Series module. Radial's unique AccuState gain control technology in the preamp section is designed to set the input sensitivity whilst optimizing the S/N at all levels, resulting in outstanding sound quality in an instant. The PreMax's EQ consists of high, mid, and low shelving controls, each with a +/-12dB range. The EQ allows you to be creative or corrective, providing you with a versatile platform for tone-shaping. The module also features a gentle high-pass filter with a 100Hz cutoff for controlling low-frequency resonance, as well as a 180° polarity reverse switch for phase-alignment or interfacing with vintage gear that doesn't follow the AES pin-2 hot convention. Providing you with an all-in-one channel strip that delivers exceptional sound combined with intuitive operation, the Radial Workhorse PreMax is an ideal choice for any 500 Series modular setup.
