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!
