The HDI is Radial’s latest flagship studio-grade direct box and preamp, with a simple but powerful feature set designed to produce superior sonic results within moments. A Color control knob allows you to blend between an ultra-clean signal path and amp-like distortion that imparts unique character and grit onto the signal, employing an oversized custom Jensen transformer for additional saturation. A single-control Opto compressor is provided to tame harsh transients, while a level control with a VU meter allows you to drive the internal circuitry for impressive and musical sounding results.
