Radial Engineering Releases the Workhorse WR8 500 Series Rack

Radial Engineering Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, announces the availability of the stand-alone Workhorse WR8 500 Series rack and optional WM8 8 channel summing mixer. The Radial Workhorse WR8 is an 8-slot 500 Series mixer that is 100-percent compatible with all standard 500 Series modules.

Individual XLR inputs and outputs are complimented with parallel ¼-inch TRS connectors and Pro Tools–compatible 25-pin D-Sub connectors. This enables any of the eight module slots to be easily integrated within the framework of current digital workstation environments. A special feed function also enables modules to be connected in series without having to hard-patch using a cable. Should the user wish to add the optional Workhorse 8-channel mixer section, a step-by-step mixer installation slide show can be found on Radial’s Website by clicking on the WR8 rack photo.

According to Radial sales manager Steve McKay: “Our plan was to start shipping the Workhorse into the North American market and then expand to Europe after the product proved to be both stable and trouble-free. After shipping hundreds, we are pleased to say that the Workhorse launch has been tremendously successful. We now feel the time has come to make the Workhorse available in a rack-only format for those who may not require the built-in 8 channel mixer. This not only brings the cost down of the Workhorse rack, but also enables the user to add the mixer at a later date, should the need arise.”

Both the Workhorse WR-8 rack and the WM-8 mixer retail for $799 and are now available through authorized vendors.
