Wimberley, TX (October 10, 2006)–Rupert Neve Designs has debuted its 5088 16-channel, 8-bus, expandable console. The fully discrete 5088 is the latest in a long history of analog mixing consoles from Rupert Neve, a pioneer of analog audio designs who created his first circuits 65 years ago and produced his first mixing desk in 1961.
The 5088 console 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 busses 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.
