Customize your workflow

Whether you're producing music in your studio or recording a live performance, your project always goes smoother when you've tailored your workflow to your style. The Radial WR8 makes it easy to combine world-class 500 Series microphone preamplifiers, EQs, compressors, and more, in one convenient rackmountable chassis. With eight empty slots, the WR8 is perfect for creating a personalized selection of processors for your specific needs.

Built-in noise filtering

Pack a lot of modules into a lesser-quality 500 Series chassis, and noise can find its way into your signal path. Not with the Radial WR8, though. Innovative noise filtering technology makes sure your signal isn't hampered by interference from various components. You'll get clear, noise-free recordings regardless of how you choose to combine modules in the WR8.

Hum-fighting power supply

Hum and ground loops are some of your worst enemies as a sound engineer. Thankfully, the Radial WR8's power supply has hum-fighting technology built-in. No matter what combination of modules you install into the WR8, you'll get clean and clear audio that's free of problems associated with low-quality power supplies.

Radial WR8 8-slot 500 Series Empty Chassis Features:
  • Empty eight-slot 500 Series chassis for creating your own custom combination of audio processors
  • Easy-glide tray makes it easy for you to install, remove, and swap modules
  • Fully compatible with 3rd-party 500 Series modules
  • Transparent performance thanks to built-in noise filtering technology
  • Hum-eliminating power supply ensures you'll never have to fight ground loops or buzzing in your audio

A great lunchbox

What sold me on the Radial Workhorse was that it has TRS and XLR ins/outs + a handy Feed switch so you don't have to patch here and patch there. I'm new to the home-recording biz......so what I didn't know was that you can't use the inserts and monitor outs unless you buy the matching mixer module. I wish that would have been explained on the product description. Had I known that, I would of probably paid the extra $150 and purchased the 10-slot lunchbox, instead. But I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Other than that, it works great.
