Decoder™ Specifications

The Radial Decoder is a stereo mid/side matrix that features three built-in microphone pre-amps. As a mic pre, it can be used with two or three microphones during tracking to capture a pre-mixed stereo M/S signal to tape. Switch the Decoder to +4dBu line level operation, and you can Reamp™ pre-recorded tracks through its matrix. No matter how you choose to use the Decoder, the mid/side process has never been easier!
