The Studio-Q is a compact studio talkback controller designed to provide a simple yet full-function cueing system that allows easy communication with artists in a separate booth or on the other side of the control room glass. The Studio-Q begins with a centrally located talkback switch that activates the built-in microphone, illuminating a bright LED to indicate that the talkback channel to the artist is active. This is supplemented with an external mic input for a dynamic microphone, allowing a stand-mounted mic to function as the main talkback source, or act as an additional talkback mic for a producer. Both the internal and external microphone levels are set via individual trim controls along with a master mic volume. A Radial JR1 remote footswitch can be connected for hands-free activation of one or both talkback mic's. When the Studio-Q talkback is active, the signal is routed to the studio headphone system while it automatically dims the program to the desired level. A separate program level control allows instant access to the playback volume feeding the headphone mix. Connecting audio to the Studio-Q is straightforward with balanced 1/4 in. TRS program inputs and outputs. The external mic input features a standard XLR for a dynamic microphone, while the JR1 remote connects via 1/4 in. jack. An additional 'remote out' 1/4 in. jack allows you to send a dry contact signal to an external device when the talkback switch is depressed. This can also be set to carry DC power and accommodate a remotely powered LED beacon to attract attention when the artist isn’t wearing headphones or is in the middle of a take. Following Radial’s pedigree for robust manufacturing, the Studio-Q is made from heavy 14-gauge steel for added durability and shielding against stray magnetic fields. A compact chassis size reduces the footprint on your desktop, with rubber feet that protect the work surface while keeping it firmly in place. The Studio-Q is powered by a 15VDC supply which may be locked in place using a cable clamp. Call or click to order today!
