Radial SW8 Auto-switcher at a Glance:
- Automatic switcher
- Simple to use
The Radial SW8 auto-switcher provides redundant backup by automatically switching between two 8-channel sources such as a pair of digital recorders. Designed primarily for live concerts and stage shows where backing tracks are used for orchestration, backing chorals and sound effects, the SW8 can detect a machine malfunction and automatically switch to a second backup machine to ensure a seamless performance.
Really simple to use
Using the SW8 is really simple! Connect your two sync'd playback systems and record a steady drone on track-1. If the tone disappears, the SW8's front panel red LED will illuminate to let you know trouble is at hand. If you dig, have the SW8 trigger an alarm, trip a contact closure or have it automatically switch to your second machine. For larger systems, the SW8 may be expanded by linking machines together using a brain-dead simple instrument cable. It's also made road tough, with a heavy-duty 14-gauge steel enclosure.
