WR-8 Workhorse 8-Slot Power Rack

- 500 series power rack with room for 8 modules
- Upgrades to full Workhorse with optional mixer
- 100% compatible with older API type racks
- Over 20% more current than the original spec

The Workhorse WR-8 is a trimmed down version of the Tec Award winning Workhorse power rack without the 8 channel summing mixer. This enables those that may not need a mixer to join in the fun while leaving the door open to upgrade in the future.

Like the Workhorse, the WR8 features eight slots to accommodate both Radial modules and other API Lunchbox compatible modules. An innovative slide-in tray makes loading modules easy! Rear connections include XLR and ¼" TRS inputs and outputs plus parallel connections via D-Subs. Unlike older API type racks that need to be hard patched, the WR8 features an innovative FEED switch that lets you connect modules in series by simply setting the switch to suit. This leaves the other connectors open for mult'ing, parallel processing and cross patching.

Stereo-ready modules such as compressor-limiters no longer need to have inside traces soldered! A simple LINK switch performs the connection and lets you revert back to normal without de-soldering. Radial also upgraded the 500 series spec with Omniport, a ¼" TRS connector that enables the manufacturer to assign a special module-specific function to increase functionality. Radial modules employ the Omniport in a variety of ways. For instance, the PowerPre assigns the Omniport as an instrument input, the Komit is a key input for the side chain and the JDV-Pre uses it as a direct box output for stage use.

The WR8 provides extra power to the modules for more headroom with over 1600 milliamps of shared power for the 8 slots. This enables you to use power hungry devices like tube preamps with confidence. The external supply makes international travel easy with 100V to 240V compatibility and the use of a standard IEC connector. To keep modules safe, the WR8 is equipped with protective circuitry to prevent mishap should improper connections be made.

The WR8 power rack - All the power of a Workhorse without the mixer.

Applications :

8 channel live recording

The WR8 perfect for multi-channel recording. Simply load it up with 8 preamps and connect your favourite studio mics and DI boxes at will. Use the ¼" TRS direct outs on each channel to feed the recorder and the XLR outs to feed the PA system.

Ultimate stereo channel strip

Pair up two Powerpres with Q3 two coil EQs and two Komit compressors to create the ultimate stereo channel strip. For incredible imaging and depth, add in a PhazeQ to channel-2 in order to phase align the two mic channels.

Reamping & effects

Creativity unleashed! Rack up the X-Amp Reamper, the EXTC guitar effects router and then pass the signal back into the JDX to simulate a guitar amp. Run it all through the Tank Driver and a real spring reverb for more fun.
