Classic Neve Sound and Impressive Flexibility

Working inside the box? Rupert Neve Designs' 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer is for you. If you record and mix straight into your DAW, you're hampered by the inability to use high-quality analog outboard gear. Enter the 5059 Satellite. The 5059 gives you 16 channels - each with individual level and pan, plus insert and bus-2 send buttons. You get two stereo busses with master texture controls, giving you effortless integration with outboard equipment, total control for two separate stem mixes, and the facility to dial in analog mojo in two distinct flavors. If you work inside the box, get Rupert Neve Designs' 5059 Satellite!

Rupert Neve Designs 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer at a Glance:
  • It's a Neve
  • Dial in some Silk
  • Flexibility - it's a beautiful thing
It's a Neve

In serious audio circles, Rupert Neve needs no introduction. Large-format Neve consoles from the 1970s are considered by many to be the pinnacle of analog mixer design. With the same design heritage and sonic mojo as the boards used to create countless hit records, the 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer juices your tracks with legendary Rupert Neve warmth and presence. With 16 channels of Rupert Neve designed Class A alchemy and flexible tonal and routing options, the Rupert Neve Designs' 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer will take your DAW-based studio's sound to a whole new level.

Dial in some Silk

The Rupert Neve Designs' 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer's continuously variable Texture controls with Silk and Silk+ modes let you fine tune the harmonic ratio and tonality of each of 5059's stereo busses. The Silk mode adds sparkle to your tracks by juicing transformer saturation in the high frequencies. Silk + mode accentuates saturation in the low frequencies, adding density and thickness to the source - particularly desirable when you've got a dry, lackluster mix. Distinctly different-sounding from equalization, Texture saturates the output transformers, adding musical harmonics to your source according to the amount you've dialed in.

Flexibility - it's a beautiful thing

The dual stereo outputs of the Rupert Neve Designs 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer are perfect for creating stem mixes, which you can enhance using the 5059's Silk/Texture controls, then process through bus compressors or other devices, finally feeding into the inputs of another mixer or your interface. This is but one example of the flexibility you'll get when integrating the 5059 into your recording rig. There's almost no end to the possibilities!

Rupert Neve Designs 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer Features:
  • Classic Neve: Class A, all transformer-balanced, and awesome-sounding
  • Zero crossover distortion and unmatched purity
  • Custom transformers provide galvanic isolation and serve up "larger than life" sound

One the 8th day God created Rupert Neve

I have spent over a year working tirelessly to get the sound I needed out of my exiting console and just never achieved it. With the Neve 5059 I have not only reached my goal, but have blown it out of the water. This is the most amazing warm, punchy, filled with head-room for days mixer I have ever used. I am using it with an Apollo 16 interface which I should add is giving me awesome D/A conversion. My workflow is so much easier as well, and recall is a cinch with all automation in the DAW. The two main busses offer so much as I am able to mix drums and bass out one with one silk setting and rest of mix through other buss with another and the result is life changing!

A Mini Mini 5088

I am really at a loss of words to describe how good this product is. I purchased the unit and did a few mixes on it and my jaw dropped. It blew my D-Box's summing out of the water (which was still really good, just a more sterile feel). This box helps create a very three-dimensional mix and there are so many different ways to use it... The silk mode is great, inserts on every channel AND 2 separate mix busses! So I decided to go a studio and mix some tracks on a 5088 with some outboard.... And HOLY MOLEY this little box gave that 5088 a run for its money!

Only one mix in and I can feel the difference

I made the leap of faith and bought the 5059. Just unboxed it yesterday and ran one of my projects through it, with very rudimentary settings.The results are amazing! The bass and subkick is "rounder" and more defined, I can clearly pick it out from my dense mix. The vocals are smoother and "creamier" (can't really describe it in words!).While I did that with pre-generated stems that were already bounced down, I can't wait to experiment with the flexibility the 5059 gives me. The thought of summing my drums with Silk/Silk+ through this unit gives me the chills!Thanks Sweetwater! And a big thank you too to my sales engineer Wayne Davis for being the all-round superb guy he is!

easily the best

This is the best summing mixer out there, period. I have tried the Tonelux, Burl, Dangerous Music, and vintage summers, but nothing has the flexibility and the tone than the 5059. It instantly makes your mix sound better. It also has the Neve name, enough said.
