At the 123rd AES Convention in New York City, AMS Neve Ltd. announced Genesys, a hand-built expandable analog recording console with digital workstation control and a base configuration starting under $50,000.
Genesys includes Neve's legendary microphone preamps and highly revered analog circuit design. The base configuration offers 16 channels of mic/line preamps; 16-channel DAW monitoring; 16-channel analog summing at mixdown; DAW control for Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo and more; eight auxiliary buses; eight group buses; two main outputs; four effects returns; comprehensive metering; 5.1 monitoring; two cue mixes; talkback services; and an internal power supply.
As studio owners' requirements change, Genesys can be expanded to more than 60 channels in a straight or articulated frame, with options including motorized fader automation, recall, mastering-grade A/D and D/A converters, digitally controlled EQ and dynamics, remote mic amp control and more.
The Genesys promises impeccable sound and build quality. Its stand and frame were developed in conjunction with internationally renowned studio designer Roger D'Arcy of Recording Architecture in London.
