    Radial MC3 Studio Monitor Controller Product Description

    The Radial MC3 monitor controller is a studio tool that enables the engineer to quickly select between reference monitors, sub woofer or headphones and compare how the mix translates via various playback systems.

    While most monitor switchers are active the MC3 is 100% passive. This means that unlike active switchers, which 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 and 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 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.


    - 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 and forget' controls to fine tune levels
