Radial produces a number of products that may be controlled via remote switches. This includes the Radial JX44 guitar and amp switcher, the SW8 multi-channel backup switcher, Firefly tube direct box and the Relay AB balanced output selector.
The Radial JR-2 is an innovative remote control that is equipped with two footswitches - designated as MUTE and AB select. Although designated this way, the actual functionality of the switch depends on the specific Radial product that is connected. The JR-2 connects to the device using a standard balanced audio cable with choice of ¼" TRS or XLR connections. The JR-2 is unique in that it derives its power from the device being controlled which in turn illuminates the on-board LED indicators to show the remote status. Both switches are latching type.
The JR2-DT is a desk-top version of the JR2. It features two top-mounted activator switches to control AB and Mute functions. These functions may change depending on the Radial product being connected. The JR2-DT connects to the device using a choice of XLR or ¼" TRS connection and standard balanced cable. The JR2-DT also derives its power from the Radial device, eliminating the need for local power. It comes with both an isolation Pad for 'free placement' and a Velcro strip to attach to a desk top, work surface or flight case. An optional L bracket enables the JR2-DT to be permanently mounted to a podium, work surface or affixed to a standard 19" rack rail.
