Rupert Neve Designs 5060
The Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece is a 24x2 desktop mixer that features Class-A analog tech flexible monitoring, DAW transport controls, and the raw power of a Rupert Neve-designed 24×2 mix-buss. With a modular, hybrid analogue/digital mix system built around the 5060, you can outfit your studio with exactly what you need – and nothing that you don’t. Utilizing modern DAW control technologies, the 5060 seamlessly integrates stem outputs from the DAW with the rest of your control room, sums the final mix, and provides 2-track outputs, source selection, and speaker feed outputs from the monitor section.
Used in conjunction with 5059 mixers and Portico modules, the 5060 forms the core of a scalable analogue system. In this arrangement, the 5059s provide individual channel control, aux routing, and expandable channel counts, the Portico modules provide preamplification, EQ and dynamics, and the 5060 unites it all. The 5060 brings your dreams of a seamless hybrid workflow to reality.
With custom transformers, a class-A mix buss and variable Silk, the 5060 can provide a wide range of tonal flavors. Drive the mix buss hard and crank the Texture knob for a rich, saturated, vintage vibe – or disengage Silk entirely for clear, wide-open sonic beauty. Silk reduces the negative feedback on the output transformer, adding harmonic content as the texture is increased. Silk red mode accentuates the saturation in the high-mids and highs, while silk blue mode features more saturation in the lows and low mids.
Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Features
The included talkback mic is activated by depressing the Talkback switch. The Talkback has level control, a direct out, and assignment to insert sends 1-2 & 3-4. When the talkback switch is depressed, the speaker output levels are lowered according to the setting of the Dim control. A talkback remote may also be plugged into the ¼” talkback remote input on the back of the 5060.
Standard transport functions in DAWs including play, stop, record, fast-forward, rewind, loop, shuttle / jog and marker drop are controlled through Midi or USB interconnection. USB mode is compatible with Mac OS X 10.3 and up, and Windows 7 & 8.
Monitor Source Selection
Selects the monitor source from between the stereo buss and three external monitor inputs.
Selects which speaker output is active. By holding the Mon 3 button, the Mon 3 outs will “latch” on, allowing both Mon 1 & 2 for use with subwoofers or speakers in the cutting room.
A reference grade headphone amplifier with headphone level control. The headphone signal follows the selection of the monitor select.
A Precision 21 step attenuator provides highly accurate left/right stereo tracking, perfect repeatability, and determines the level of the monitor output.
VU Meters Display the RMS signal level of the selected monitor source, and the peak indicator illuminates red when the peak threshold has been exceeded.
Engaged when either the Dim or Talkback switch is depressed, Dim reduces the volume of monitor between -6dB and -30dB.
