Unlike other Radial 500 series Racks, the Radial Workhorse Cube 3 Slot Desktop Power Rack is designed for portability and versatile use including as a desktop module. Move your preamps close to the source to reduce cable lengths for better signal to noise operation, or mount the Cube either flush or at a 30 degree angle into a work surface with optional mounting flanges for a convenient install in smaller workspaces.
Radial Workhorse Cube 3 Slot Desktop Power Rack Features
- Desktop power rack houses three 500 series modules
- Compatible with Radial and older API systems
- Provides up to 500 milliamps of shared current
- Optional angles let you recess it into the table top
Construction begins with a 14 gauge steel frame and features dual gold contact EDAC 15-pin connectors for optimal signal transfer. To maximize headroom, the external supply delivers 500mA of current for power hungry modules plus a separate 48V phantom tap delivers a full 10mA of current for microphone preamps.
Rear panel connectivity includes standard XLRs for each slot along with 1/4 inch TRS connectors for multiple modules, cross patching and parallel processing. Instead of the traditional 'hardwire patch' system employed by others, The Cube employs an innovative feed function that patches modules together in series without the need of a cable. And stereo modules no longer need to be soldered to be paired, they can now be sync'd together using a simple switch. The Cube is also equipped with Omniport on each slot. This TRS jack enables the module manufacturer to implement a unique function for a given module such as a key input on a gate.
Following the criteria established by the Radial Workhorse, the PowerStrip is 100% backwards compatible with older API modules while being optimized for Radial's expanding range of preamps, processors and routing devices.
