Cordial @ Night Of Light 2021 Review
Cordial GmbH took part in the repetition of the "Night Of Light".
Cordial wants you!

Cordial is also expanding the team in 2021: no less than three new positions are currently offered.

By opening up new markets, introducing new products and continuously improving our service, CORDIAL is withstanding the Corona pandemic and its effects on the music industry. We are now looking for further support in the sales team. To support the accounting department, an accountant (m/f/d) is being looked for on a full-time basis. The administration also needs support. For more information see below.

Nothing suitable? Furthermore, we are always interested in meaningful and interesting unsolicited applications.

Your opportunity with CORDIAL

EDITION 25 with silentPLUGs

Every guitarist knows the issue: when plugging in and unplugging, there is inevitably a loud crackling noise; the technician gets a crisis and fears for his equipment. Our popular EDITION 25 cables with high-quality textile jacket are now also available with a straight or right angled NEUTRIK silentPLUG, which prevents cracks when plugging them in. As usual, the high-quality textile material with a conductor area of 0.50 mm² (AWG 21) ensures perfect sound and visual signal transmission.

Cordial @ Night Of Light 2021 Review

The alliance #AlarmStageRed invited the reprise of its nationwide protest action on June 22: the "Night Of Light 2021". Again, event locations, cultural monuments, etc. were illuminated in red on June 22. Cordial also let its company building shine in red light at night.

Technically supported by the partners Veranstaltungstechnik Thomas Wild and CONRAD Licht & Rigging Support, Cordial set a sign of solidarity. For the support of the industry by politics and the public.

The Dos & Don'ts of studio cabling

The Sound & Recording Weekly Review is a podcast of the german magazine sound & recording. The topic of this episode: What do you have to pay attention to when it comes to studio cabling? What should be avoided? And which parameters are actually important for cables? Tobias Felbermayr, Head of Sales & Marketing at CORDIAL, spent an hour answering questions about studio cabling. In addition to the difference between balanced and unbalanced connections, he also discussed cable management, the right choice of cables, plugs and adapters, and everyday tips about the inconspicuous thing that is so important for the sound. Unfortunately english subs are missing.

Joshi (ZSK) about their new record

The guys from ZSK have successfully stormed the album charts with their new record "Ende der Welt". In the CORDIAL Family Talk, Joshi explains the conditions under which it came about last year and how the year shaped the band.

Ronja Maltzahn about the Lockdown (DE)

Lockdown - actually the worst case for musicians. Cordial friend Ronja Maltzahn doesn't let times of crisis get in the way of her positive attitude; after all, she is a musical and organizational all-rounder. Her planned "living room or garden concerts" are a special point, which she pursues with enthusiasm. She also talks about the possibilities of state aid for artists in crisis or about crazy situations in the context of her current CD production. And one always senses when she tells: "just don't bury your head in the sand, it'll work out".

More power to the people!

Especially for particularly "stressful" times, Cordial has now added even more powerful ready made power cables to its portfolio. The flexible and reliable TITANEX® bulk cable with 3x 2.50 mm² conductor area can be loaded up to 20A without heat generation and minimizes voltage losses even over longer distances. The rubber cable made of polychloroprene is also oil-resistant and flame-retardant, ensuring high durability even in adverse weather conditions. The CFCA 25 cables are available with powerCON, powerCON TRUE1 TOP and Schuko in various lengths.

More space and more products

Every crisis is an opportunity. While others stuck their heads in the sand, Cordial made productive use of the turbulent year 2020 with all its cancelled events, postponed festivals and dropped events. We gave various products additional lengths that were in demand, expanded the portfolio in many parts with useful and better products, and celebrated our birthday at least a little bit with our anniversary series EDITION 25. We have also developed significantly internally: for example, we have become much more digital and better, whether through optimized processes or home offices. Our employees have formed a works council to get through the difficult times together and to shape our success as a team. And we firmly believe that every crisis will have an end: To make sure things get back on track soon, we have expanded our warehouse, creating significantly more storage space for even more products. This will allow us to significantly increase our overall stock levels, have space for further products (stay tuned!) and be ready for when the desire for festivals and concerts may also be satisfied again. We are looking forward to a strong 2021, which will definitely be better than this year.

CXM FM and CXI PR in new lengths

The popular CXM FM microphone cables and the CXI PR instrument cables for the small budget are now available in additional lengths. The microphone cable is now also available in 1m, 2.5m and 7.5m and the guitar cable in 1.5m. The microphone cable as well as the instrument cable are characterized by their low price-level and the high quality nickel-plated NEUTRIK quality plugs. The used bulk cables are the usual high CORDIAL standard. With the new lengths, it is now possible to find the right cable for every application.

DMX cable in even more lengths

Right now, many clubs, bars and concert halls are making the most of the so-called "lockdown light" in Germany and are optimizing their DMX-controlled light systems. To take this into account, Cordial is now expanding its range of ready-made DMX cables, so that the right length is available for every application. Both the 5-pin DMX cables CDX 1 and CDX 2 and the 3-pin control cable CPD FM are now available in lengths of 7.5 m and 15 m. This means that for every moving light, no matter how far away it is, there is a perfectly fitting DMX cable and the guests can finally come again.

Bundle cooperation with Steinberg

The Steinberg company has just launched its red-hot bundle product “The Guitar Recording Kit”.

To put it in a nutshell: A mutually fruitful partnership to guarantee optimal guitar recordings.
