Radial JDX-500 Guitar Amp & Cab Simulator 500 Series Module

The Radial JDX™ Reactor™ is a unique guitar amplifier interface designed to capture the tone of a 4x12 cabinet by either recording 'direct' or by interfacing the Reactor via an amplifier head and cabinet. This makes the JDX ideal for fast-paced recording environments such as film and gaming where take after take consistency is required. But don't let the high-speed production capability lead you to think compromise… the JDX is used by many of the world's leading artists including heavy metal master Kerry King of Slayer, Rascal Flatts, Radiohead and Dimmu Borgir just to name a few.

      • Guitar amp interface and cabinet simulator
      • Reactive load captures sound from head and cabinet
      • Direct record option for quick tracking
      • Delivers consistent great tone each time
    • Radial Engineering JDX-500 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

      In many ways, printing out the specifications of the JDX is a moot point. The Radial JDX has been designed to 'sound good' by emulating the sonic character of a guitar amp and a 4x12 speaker cabinet with a dynamic mic positioned inches away from the cone. In other words, the JDX sound has absolutely nothing to do with a 'flat frequency response' or the typical specifications that engineers will consider. It is in fact the opposite. We have however taken the time to minimize distortion so that the JDX delivers the signal correctly without introducing noise. We also felt it worthwhile to show you the resulting EQ curves so you can get a first hand view of how we will ruin your sound! Have fun!
