Now THIS is what I’m talking about. I’ve been waiting for this 500 Series rack to come out since I saw it, and they’ve made it even better by offering a model without the summing mixer. You can still put the mixer in later if you want, but this makes getting the workhorse a little more cost effective by allowing you to buy the summing mixer at a later date. Speaking of dates, I haven’t been on one in almost 2 years… True story
Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the availability of the stand-alone Workhorse WR8 500 series rack and optional WM8 8 channel summing mixer.
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.”
The Radial Workhorse WR8 is an 8-slot 500 series mixer that is 100% compatible with all standard 500 series modules. Individual XLR inputs and outputs are complimented with parallel 1/4″ TRS connectors and Pro-Tools compatible 25 pin D-Subs. This enables any of the 8 module slots to be easily integrated within the framework of today’s popular digital workstation environment. 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 our website by clicking on the WR8 rack photo.
Both the Workhorse WR-8 rack and the WM-8 mixer retail for $799 USD and are now available through authorized vendors.
