Altitude Recording’s Neve 5116 vintage 24+8, 8 bus analog recording console, also known as a “Neve Baby V”, is Colorado’s only VINTAGE NEVE CONSOLE. It delivers warm, huge, punchy, deep sounding tracks. No digital board comes close. Amazing results are also possible by mixing your digital or home studio tracks or mixes through this board and/or outboard gear. Perfect for either tracking or mixing, everything just sounds better through this console. Great for drums, guitar, vocals, bass, keyboards, or anything else you want to record! This console was the flagship of the 51 series audio console range, with 8 subgroups and 2 pairs main stereo outputs. All 24 inputs and subgroups are provided with a 4 Band Neve Formant Spectrum Equalizer, high and low pass filters, direct outs to Pro Tools, and a limiter / compressor / gate. Outputs 1+2 are the original Neve summing output transformers, and outputs 3+4 are API transformers from an API Legacy console. Modified Neve Kingshill power supply, with voltage stabilizer.
