Neve 4081 Quad Mic-Pre x 2 (8-Channel) Inc. Rackmount Kit - B-Stock


The Neve 4081 Quad Mic Preamp x2 is 2 of the world renowned 4081 quad preamps, these pre-amp builds on the incredible success of the 1081 and 1081R modules and provides both powerful control and legendary Neve sound. Perfect for vocals, ADR and Foley Recording, the 4081's features make it the number one choice for any studio, OB truck or live stage environment. The quad 4081 mic pres also feature a Firewire option cards. There is currently a limit in the driver of 4 units per FireWire stream. 4 units gives 16 IN and 16 OUT on a single DAW connection if using FireWire, but the available bandwidth allows 16 IN and 16 OUT at 192kHz

Every function of the 4081 can be controlled directly from the front panel or by remote control using a Mac or PC with Neve Remote Control software. This provides a simple and elegant solution for users of ProTools, Nuendo, Cubase and similar DAW systems. Multiple 4081 units can be linked together to create up to 64 independent channels of Mic Preamps or Line Level inputs – all controlled from a single computer.

And now with Version 2.00 software, metering information is displayed within the Remote Mic Control window, which is passed back from the 4081 unit(s) to the Remote Mic Control software running on the computer being used for remote control.
