AMS Neve 1081R Fully fitted 5U Rack of 12 x Classic 1081R Modules

The Neve 1081R is the ideal solution for engineers seeking multiple channels of Neve sound quality without investing in a new console. This system consists of a microprocessor-controlled 12-slot rack and a 12 Neve 1081R Classic Mono Mic Pre modules.

By selecting their desired combination of mic preamps, engineers have the flexibility to record classical, pop, rock, or any other musical format, and control it all from a Neve Console or standalone PC. In terms of application, the 1081 offers the perfect response for close miking of vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.

The rack can be positioned remotely and controlled via an Encore system on a Neve console or a standalone PC, making it the perfect choice for studio or live recording applications. (Connections come courtesy of a 9-pin serial control cable via RS232 to RS485 converter.) Operational settings such as gain, phase and 20dB pad can be controlled either from the rack or via the interface screen, and stored for later recall.

The 1081R allows these legendary mic preamps to be used as remote inputs for the 88RS analogue console, or provides the perfect companion to our digital consoles.
