The Radial JX44 Air Control is a guitar signal manager designed for the most demanding professional concert stages where wireless guitar systems, acoustics, effects and multiple amplifiers are used simultaneously.
To ensure the highest quality signal transfer, the four instrument inputs employ Radial's unique class-A buffering with 100% discrete components throughout. Inputs A & B are equipped with Drag™ Control load correction that lets you 'dial in' the perfect load on the pickup for the most natural tone. Inputs B &C are equipped with a trim level that let you quickly balance signal levels when using wireless systems or active guitars.
There are two effects loops: The first is a 'local' effects loop to interface drawer-filled pedals or multi-effects processors. The second is a long-haul balanced interface that provides a noise-free connection to-and-from distant pedalboards to distances of 100 meters when combined with a stand-alone Radial SGI-44. A built-in Radial direct box works double duty as an acoustic guitar output for the PA or as a dry feed for recording. With the JX44, you can record a 'clean guitar track' and use the built-in Radial X-Amp in post production to Reamp the signal to multiple amplifiers and pedals at the same time.
Up to six guitar amplifiers may be used at once. Outputs 1 and 2 are single while outputs 3 and 4 are doubled-up to drive multiple stacks. All outputs are transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops. These also feature a 180º polarity reverse switch to set the amps in phase. Selecting the amps can be done via the front panel or by using the optional JR5 remote control. This five function footswitch is equipped with internal memory that lets you store 4 amp scenes and recall them with a single foot action. A second JR5 can also be used to activate or mute guitars. To enhance stage functionality, the JX44 is equipped with a separate tuner out. Signals can be muted using the front panel switch, a latching footswitch, or with the JR5 remote, giving you complete control right where you want it. Should ever a problem occur, a front panel 'panic' button hardwires input-A to output-1 for direct-to-amp connection. This will even work if the JX44 power goes down. With a Radial JX44 in your rig, the show will go on!
