Genesys builds upon Neve's 40 years of accumulated technical heritage, including legendary mic preamplifiers and highly revered analogue circuit design. The base configuration offers 16 channels of mic / line preamps, 16-channel DAW monitoring, 16-channel analogue summing at mixdown, DAW control for Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo and more, 8 auxiliary buses, 8 group buses, 2 main outputs, 4 effects returns, comprehensive metering, 5.1 monitoring, 2 cue mixes, talkback services and an internal power supply.
As studio owners' requirements change, Genesys can be expanded to over 60 channels in a straight or articulated frame, with options including motorized fader automation, recall, mastering-grade A/D and D/A converters, digitally controlled EQ and dynamics, remote mic amp control and much more.
"Genesys is made to capture performances. It's for people who want to record real, live musicians into their digital audio workstations with rich, full Neve analogue sound," said Robin Porter, AMS Neve Head of Analogue Design. "It also serves as an excellent studio control surface with comprehensive monitoring and signal routing capabilities. This eliminates the typical hodge-podge of awkwardly interfaced devices, putting a proper console back at the heart of the studio."
