Reamp and mix through your guitar pedals
The EXTC-500 is a 500 series module that allows you to get creative with your effects pedals, using them in your mix on any recorded track. Add a touch of distortion or chorus to a lead vocal, flange on a violin, or fuzz on piano - the possibilities are endless. The EXTC-500 takes the line level balanced output of your recording interface and converts it so an instrument level high-Z output optimized for guitar effects pedals, so you can Reamp any track through your pedalboard with ease. Once you've run the signal through your pedals, connect the output back into the EXTC and it will boost it up to a balanced line level so you can connect directly to the input of your recording interface. Radial's class-A buffer for the best audio quality and transformer isolation to eliminate any buzz or hum.
"It's a balanced interface for stompboxes and other guitar effects that allows users to merge groovy and heinously gritty guitar boxes with pro-audio recording media. Run a line-level signal from your DAW into the EXTC, and it will "unbalance" the signal and convert it to high impedance - the prefect insert signal for effects pedals of all types.", GuitarPlayer
"At the end of the day, I just added seven overdrives, six delays, two envelope filters, a ring modulator, a PLL, and many other once-lonely effects pedals to my tone-shaping arsenal.", Tape Op
Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?
Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
"Great service from Aaron-already Aaron has helped me make some important early decisions for going forward. It's clear he has an ability to keep things in understandable terms for noobs like me, and I have no doubt he can scale up the advice for all levels. Cheers Aaron and look forward to our next sesh. Pete"
