Overview

The Radial MC3 monitor controller is a studio tool that enables you to quickly select between reference monitors, sub woofer or headphones and compare how the mix translates via various playback systems. Unique to the MC3 is the ability to quickly sum mono for AM radio compatibility

And while most monitor switchers are active the MC3 is 100% passive. This means that unlike active switchers that introduce a buffered electronic circuit in between your recording system and monitors, the MC3 delivers straight wire performance. This eliminates coloration and distortion for more accurate monitoring.

The MC3 features an easy access level control that lets you quickly set playback levels on all speakers. Each output is equipped with a top-mount 'set & forget' dial to fine tune outputs for the ideal balance. The sub is augmented with a 180 degree polarity reverse to help deal with room modes that may cause a frequency bump in the mix position. A separate Dim switch is also adjustable to enable the engineer to temporarily drop the playback level without affecting the mix level settings. To address the ever-increasing popularity of ear buds, the Radial MC3 is equipped with a built-in headphone amplifier with stereo 3.5mm (1/8" TRS) output along with two standard 1/4" headphone phone outs to share. The MC3 may be configured for either balanced or unbalanced setups.

Features
  • Passive studio monitor switcher with headphone amp
  • Control two sets of monitors and sub woofer
  • Mono sum for AM radio compatibility and phase check
  • Individual 'set & forget' controls to fine-tune levels

Sensible design and clean sound

By STEVEN HARROW

from Mendon, NY

The simplicity of design,clarity of sound,and appropriate controls (just the right amount) make this a no-brainer. You might think it is only a 2-monitor controller, but it can easily be configured for up to 4. A headphone output (there are 3) can drive another monitor set with a y-cable, and there is an aux output in the back that can also do the job. Since there is an on/off switch that controls the headphone/aux outputs, you don't have to fuss with the headphone volume control to shut that signal off. The DI box size of this unit makes it easy on your desk real estate. HIghly recommended!

Great Solution for Monitoring

By JOSEPH RIVAS

from brooklyn, NY

Radial has another winner! The link between you interface and monitors is crucial. The MC3 gives you passive level control and a killer headphone amp. My DT 770's have never sounded better. This unit does what it says- with class.
