Radial Engineering ChainDrive

The Radial Engineering ChainDrive is an ample device for expanding one’s routing flexibility. Th module is essentially a 1:4 distribution unit for the 500 Series format. It affords users the ability to create complex signal paths by routing an audio signal to external processors, remote systems, or effects. Additionally, the module’s circuitry enables balanced and unbalanced signals, as well as unbalanced stereo sources, to be used in tandem.

Using the ChainDrive enables engineers to send a previously recorded track to several processors for the creation of multi band compression, mutli effects processing, and splitting the signal for routing to guitar pedals and amplifiers.
