Radial Cherry Picker

Radial's bærplukker er et genialt studioprodukt. Cherry Picker lar deg koble en mikrofon til fire ulike forforsterkere, slik at du enten kan ta opp fire ulike lydkombinasjoner samtidig, eller enkelt vurdere og velge hvilken kombinasjon som låter best til akkurat dette opptaket. Cherry Picker slipper igjennom mikrofonens egen klangkarakter, og er svært skånsom i sin behandling av det opprinnelige mikrofonsignalet. Har du en rør-preamp, en vintage klasse-A variant og en ny, moderne forforsterker kan du enkelt gjøre opptak av alle tre samtidig, for så å sitte i miksen og velge den som passer best i ettertid. Lækkert!!

The Radial Cherry Picker is a unique tool designed to improve efficiency and workflow in the studio by simplifying the process of matching the best preamp with a microphone for a given track. This is most often done when recording vocals. This improves the sonic character of the track and provides the vocalist with a more comfortable sound, which in turn allows for a better performance.

Four front panel 'radio style' selector switches select the active preamp while automatically disconnecting the mic from the others. Completely passive and 100% discrete, the Cherry Picker features a 'straight wire' signal path. There is no active circuitry whatsoever in between the mic signal and the preamp. The audio signal switching is performed by a series of military-grade gold contact sealed relays for zero coloration and distortion to ensure a fair and honest comparison between preamps.

The rear panel is equipped with a balanced XLR input for the microphone and four balanced XLR outputs to feed the various preamps. When using a studio condenser, the Cherry Picker internally generates 48V phantom power so that switching between preamps will not disrupt the phantom power going to the microphone. This could otherwise cause severe popping in the audio system and headphones. Separate ground lift switches for each output help reduce noise by eliminating ground loops plus a handy mute switch turns all outputs off, enabling the engineer to leave the preamp settings untouched when testing out other mics.

The Cherry Picker... a tool designed to improve performance, sound and workflow at the same time.

Teknisk informasjon

The Cherry Picker is a 'straight wire' switcher that lets you to compare up to four preamps using a single microphone. This balanced interface employs high performance gold contact sealed relays and is void of any buffering whatsoever. This results in distortion levels that are below measurement, zero phase shift at all audio frequencies and a linear performance that is equivalent to a solid piece of wire. The external power supply is used to control the relays, power the LEDs and generate 48V phantom power.
