Workhorse™ Specifications

The Radial Workhorse is designed to be a neutral sounding platform through which various modules can be connected. In other words, the `personality` of the module is meant to shine through. The simplicity of the design is ideally suited for this task as there are no individual channel inserts, effects or equalization circuits. This being said, analogue audio equipment should introduce warmth and personality to the clinical world of digital recording. To this end, we have provided two types of outputs: the main output is Jensen transformer coupled to add character and warmth while the monitor output has been optimized for absolute linearity.
