London, UK (June 23, 2004)–Abbey Road Studios has confirmed an order for a Neve 88RS 72-channel console. The new console will be the first 88R to be delivered in the UK with the new ‘S’ channel strip.
The 88RS will include the new SP2 scoring panel, a 36-track Stem Matrix and 48 Neve remote control mic preamps. The new SP2 panel was designed with input from many of the world’s leading scoring mixers.
Abbey Road’s Studio 1 comfortably accommodates a 100-piece orchestra and chorus of 120 in the 456 square metres of studio floor space. Recent film projects scored there include Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, Cold Mountain, the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Shrek 4D, Bon Voyage, Mona Lisa Smile and Sky Captain–World Of Tomorrow.
The 88RS carries on the great partnership between Abbey Road Studios and AMS Neve. The new Neve console will replace the Neve VR72 in Studio One. Abbey Road’s Studio Two and the Penthouse are also equipped with Neve consoles.
