Rupert Neve Designs 15th Anniversary, a new 5088 video, and more!

15 Years of Rupert Neve Designs

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been fifteen years since Rupert Neve Designs was founded by Rupert, his wife Evelyn, and Josh Thomas.

In 2005, Rupert Neve Designs began with the original Portico modules, taking concepts he began with the original Neve Company, Focusrite, and AMEK, and combining them into a new line of outboard equipment that took Rupert’s vision of high-fidelity audio and adapted it for a more modular, modern workflow.

The Portico Series was followed by the 5088 console – the pinnacle of Rupert’s console design philosophies, and the only modern console with the same level of build quality as his legendary 80-Series consoles from the early 1970s. To this day, those desks are still regarded as perhaps the greatest vintage consoles ever built, and the 5088 is the only console currently in production that carries their design philosophies onwards without compromise. With higher voltage and lower noise than the beloved vintage desks, custom transformers on every single input and output, and a truly stunning amount of headroom, there is nothing else like it being made today.

And with users ranging from Alan Parsons to deadmau5, Historic RCA Studio B to Jack White, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music to Willie Nelson’s Pedernales, the 5088 has firmly cemented its position as the console of choice for artists, engineers, studios and universities who require the best sound quality in the world.


New Video: Joey Raia and the 5088


Mix Engineer Joey Raia (Run The Jewels, Travis Barker, Aesop Rock) gives us his thoughts on getting out of the box and away from a screen, and how his 5088 has made the mix process that much more enjoyable.

Our #washandlearn Campaign

The first week of April, we started an Instagram campaign to inspire, educate, and encourage health & charity in the recording community during these difficult times. These short videos feature producers, artists, engineers, studio managers and more, all washing their hands on camera while teaching our fans something about recording, mixing, creativity, or music business.

These videos have garnered over 100K combined views, and all include links to MusiCares, Help Musicians, and other charitable organizations.

New Video: Syracuse University and the RMP-D8

Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University recently installed several RMP-D8 Dante-connected microphone preamplifiers and converters to provide a high-end AoIP recording solution for their entire campus.

Here, Kevin Muldoon (Recording Engineer) and Brian Loney (Sweetwater Sales Engineer) discuss why the RMP-D8 was the ideal solution for the school, and the advantages of this new networked audio system.
