At the 131st AES Convention in New York City, October 20-23, 2011, Vintage King Audio will showcase the Custom Series 75 Console in Booth #228 in conjunction with Studios 301 Manufacturing, based in Australia.
While a prototype of the console was on display at the 2010 AES Convention, this is the first time that the general public will be able to participate in a hands-on demonstration of the Custom Series 75. Vintage King Audio’s Alex Oana and Custom Series 75’s chief engineer Bruce McBean will lead the demos. Participants may mix on the console using provided multitrack recordings.
Located at Vintage King Audio’s booth #228, each demo will run for approximately 15 to 20 minutes: Friday, October 21 at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.; Saturday, October 22 at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.; and Sunday, October 23 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. only.
In addition to the daily demos, those interested may set up a one-on-one demo by contacting Alex Oana via email at [email protected].
“The Custom Series 75 has achieved a world first, combining classic and modern circuitry into one console. Since its 2010 debut, we’ve worked tirelessly to perfect the Custom Series 75,” says Bruce McBean, 301 Manufacturing’s chief lead engineer. “Last year’s AES Convention gave us an opportunity to speak with Custom Series 75 users; their feedback contributed to the finished product that AES attendees will see and hear this year. We look forward to connecting with clients once again to demonstrate what this revolutionary console is truly capable of.”
The Custom Series 75 offers the combination of classic circuitry and modern circuitry in one console. The classic Neve circuitry has been painstakingly re-created, keeping faithful to the original while taking advantage of modern assembly methods. The original circuits have only been changed where justified by an improvement in reliability or performance.
Designed with longevity in mind, the console’s two stereo buses allow for maximum flexibility, and the 2081 in-line channel modules feature a blend of the best features of Neve’s legendary 1073 and 1081 modules. Two 2254 compressors, four stereo reverb returns, eight recallable scenes, monitoring of up to 12 sources simultaneously and comprehensive 7.1 monitoring are some of the features found in the master section.
Available in a chassis of 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 or 64 modules, the Series 75 is flexible and able to suit a variety of studio applications from broadcast to music and even film production.
