The Workhorse Cube from Radial Engineering is a power rack designed to house three 500 Series modules. It can be used to create a channel strip by combining a preamp, EQ, and compressor (available separately), in a convenient package which can sit on the desktop or be carried around the studio.

The Cube does not have any circuitry other than its connectors, so it does not impart color, distortion or artifact to the audio signal. Compliant with the guidelines set out in the Workhorse open-source document (Whos-Doc), it accommodates the very latest 500 Series modules while being backward-compatible with older formats, including API.

Rear-panel connectivity includes XLRs and 1/4" TRS connectors on each slot for cross patching and parallel processing multiple modules. Powerful routing options abound. Feed Switches let you send the output from one module into the next without requiring a cable, while Link Switches enable you to set up links between stereo-ready modules. The unit is also equipped with Omniport for each slot, allowing the module manufacturers to implement unique functions such as key or side-chain input.

The unit's external power supply generates 500mA of shared current and 48V phantom power for microphones. The heavy-duty steel chassis provides extra shielding against electromagnetic noise and, with the handle removed, can be recessed into a desktop using the optional angle- and flush-mount hardware kits (available separately).

Desktop power rack designed to hold three 500 series modules
Three-module design enables user to create a channel strip by combining a preamp, EQ, and compressor (available separately), in a convenient package
No audio circuitry other than connectors – the Cube will not impart any color, distortion or artifact
External supply provides up to 500mA of current, shared by all three modules
Fully compatible with API module standard – backward-compatible with older API models
Balanced XLR I/Os are paralleled to 1/4" TRS connectors – allows for series and parallel signal processing
Feed Switch sends the output from one module into the next without requiring a cable
Link Switch sets up link between stereo-ready modules by sliding the switch upwards
Omniport adds functionality to enhance each module's capability as set by the manufacturer
Switchable on/off 48V phantom power – LED illuminates when On
15-Pin card edge EDAC connector with double-sided, gold-plated contacts for optimal connectivity
Each slot is equipped with an auto-resetting fuse to protect the system should a faulty module be employed
Slide-in tray makes it easy to align modules when swapping in and out
Heavy-duty steel chassis provides a rigid platform for your modules and extra shielding against electromagnetic noise
Attach carry handle to turn the Cube into a portable channel strip
