Overview

The ChainDrive is an innovative 1x4 'distro' module designed to fit inside the popular 500 series rack format. Once connected, it enables the engineer to send an audio signal to various processers, effects or remote audio systems simultaneously as a means to create innovative signal paths.

The design is simple and easy to use. Sijmply connect to the module via the power rack's rear panel XLR input which then feeds the four corresponding 1/4" TRS outputs on the front panel. The unique circuit design enables both balanced and unbalanced signals to be used while also accommodating unbalanced stereo sources. Those with a Radial Workhorse may connect to the ChainDrive via the XLR, 1/4" TRS input or D-Sub. Designated as an unbalanced input, the ChainDrive's Omniport input automatically converts the unbalanced signal to a balanced line so that it can then feed other 500 series modules.

Applications include sending a pre-recorded track to multiple dynamic processors to create multi-band compression, feeding a variety of effects processors simultaneously and splitting the signal to feed various guitar amps and pedals. Each TRS signal path may also be used to distribute a stereo signal such as a CD or iPod and feed it to four stereo destinations.

The ChainDrive is a unique tool designed for creative engineers who are looking to expand the sonic landscape by adding more routing flexibility than ever before!
