Vancouver BC, Canada - Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the availability of the stand-alone WR8 500 series rack and optional 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 WR8 rack and the WM-8 mixer retail for $800 USD and are now available through authorized vendors. For more information please visit or send an email to:
