Rupert Neve is returning to mixing console design and manufacturing with the introduction of the expandable Rupert Neve Designs 5088 16-channel, 8-bus console.
The 5088 incorporates custom designed input and output transformers and is expandable in 16-channel sections (allowing for 32, 48, 64 or more channels). All input channels offer bus/line/tape input selections, transformer-coupled direct outputs, eight mix buses and eight auxiliary sends, and 100mm faders. The monitor/master section includes four stereo effects returns, switchable selection of three control room monitor outputs, six monitor sources, AFL/PFL solo modes, as well as talkback and oscillator functions, and 100mm stereo master faders. Metering is accomplished with two master VU meters, as well as an optional meter bridge, which will be available at the time of launch.
Orders for the new Rupert Neve Designs 5088 mixing console are being taken for delivery in early 2007.
