The Workhorse WR-8 is a trimmed-down version of the Workhorse power rack without the 8 channel summing mixer.
The Radial WR-8 Workhorse can accommodate both Radial and other 500-series modules up to a total of eight which can be easily inserted thanks to Radial’s innovative slide-in tray. Like other units in the Workhorse series, the WR-8 features a wealth of connections at the back including XLR and ¼” TRS Inputs and outputs as well as parallel connections via D-Sub. Combined with a unique a truly innovative Feed switch that lets you connect modules in series, the WR-8 Workhorse delivers the flexibility engineers required with mult’ing, parallel processing and cross patching.
Unlike the original Lunchbox design by API, the Radial Workhorse offers a Link switch that lets you easily select between dual mono and stereo operation. Radial has also included a unique Omniport ¼” TRS connector increasing further the Workhorse’s flexibility. Radial 500-series modules already use the Omniport connector for many different functions such as instrument input on preamps, key input for side-chain processing or direct box output for stage use.
Another upgrade from the original 500-series design, the WR-8 workhorse provides much more power with 1600 milliamps spread over the 8 slots. This enables you to use power-hungry modules such as valve preamps and have enough power to use comfortably all your other modules. In addition the WR-8 Workhorse features a protective circuit preventing problems in case of improper connections.
