Developer's Guide To Building 500 Series Rack Modules
Radial Engineering tell us who is using the WHOS-Doc 25-Aug-11
Radial Engineering tell us that, since its release in late February, the Workhorse Open Source Document (WHOS-Doc), has been downloaded by manufacturers, developers and enthusiasts from all around the world: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Serbia and Montenegro, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, UK, Uruguay and the USA.
Radial President Peter Janis, told us, "We are closing in on almost one hundred downloads of the document and preliminary feedback has been very positive. We've had indications that we should see some products roll out this fall that take advantage of the specifications in the standard and that also incorporate the Omniport option available on our own Workhorse 500 series rack."
JLM Audio of Australia was one of the first to work with the standard. They now include a mix buss output on all five of their modules and will incorporate the Omniport option in the future.
Grace Design of Boulder, Colorado is also working on a new module that implements the Omniport and the Radial buss feed function. Eben Grace of Grace Design had this to say, "The Radial Workhorse Open Source Document is a good step towards further establishing the 500 series module convention while also making some well thought out improvements to the platform... We are glad to know that developers such as ourselves can look to a well-thought-out standardization scheme to enhance the quality and compatibility of the platform."
The Workhorse is Radial's next generation 500 Series frame. More information:
