A complete recording and re-amping solution.

The Radial Engineering Reamp Station combines two studio essentials in one complete package: an active direct box for capturing pristine recordings of any instrument, and the JCR high-performance Reamper to feed your tracks to guitar pedals and amplifiers for re-recording, to take your mixes to another level.

The active DI portion of the Reamp Station is based off Radial’s world-class J48, tweaked slightly to provide maximum benefit for recording tracks that can be re-amped at a later time. Among these changes is a buffer switch, which engages a unity-gain Class-A buffer circuit on the Thru output, preventing any loading down of passive pickups when connected to an amplifier and preserving the natural tone of your instrument.

The Reamper side of the device takes the circuit from the Reamp JCR, originally designed by acclaimed engineer John Cuniberti, and ports it into a multi-use studio tool. The JCR features an American-made custom-wound transformer to convert the line-level signals from an audio interface so they are optimized to feed guitar pedals and amplifiers—while also including a level control, 3-position filter, and a mute switch to protect your ears when adjusting mic placement on a live amp. In addition to the XLR and balanced 1/4" TRS inputs for the Reamper, a 3.5 mm mini input is also included for easy connection to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to streamline playback and encourage additional creativity.

Reamping Part 1: Recording Direct

Recording a clean, noise-free “dry” track is an essential step in studio Reamping. The active DI in the Reamp Station captures your instrument signal without coloration or distortion, providing the perfect template for future tweaking. A Thru output feeds a guitar amp for monitoring or miked up recording.

Reamping Part 2: Back Through the Amp

Once you have your original performance recorded, you can let the real fun begin. Feed your pre-recorded track back through your pedals and amps and experiment with new and exciting tonal combinations, taking your time to make adjustments and find the perfect balance without tiring out your guitar players fingers.

Record Through Effects Pedals

With the Reamp Station, you can play any recorded trackback through your effects pedals as if they were a piece of studio hardware. Send the Reamped signal out to your pedals as normal, but skip the amplifier and connect back into the Reamp Station’s instrument input. The direct box output feeds a mic-level signal back to your interface to record the results.
