Created with keyboard pros in mind, the Radial KL-8 is a mixing station that accommodates up to four instrument inputs in mono or stereo, with level controls, aux sends, and LED indicators for each.

Radial Engineering KL-8A stereo aux send/receive is available to feed rackmount reverbs and delays and effects pedals, or it can be used as an additional input for a fifth keyboard. The KL-8 also features multiple output options, with transformer-isolated XLR main outputs to feed the PA, monitor outputs for a set of speakers on stage, and dual headphone outputs for local monitoring and testing.

Midi and USB connections enable control of a laptop soft-synth, using high-quality 192kHz, 24-bit digital audio converters. Additionally, the KL-8 allows redundant laptop systems to be set up with seamless transitions from one to another. A secondary USB input on the KL-8 allows a backup laptop to be kept at the ready – when failure occurs, the front panel USB select switch switches over. Alternatively, an optional JR-1L remote footswitch can be used to instantly switch to the backup system.

A built in headphone amp and dual quarter-inch TRS outputs give the option to practice and record silently, or cue up individual inputs on stage without feeding signal out to the audience over the PA system. Each input channel on the KL-8 is accompanied by a Cue switch that will remove that input from the main and monitor outputs and reroute it directly to the headphones, so that patches can be easily adjusted and playback tested over USB without affecting the performance.
