How to connect a Neve 8068 and Studer A820?

Hi!

This is a desperate cry for help! hah!

I've been hunting far and wide on the internet trying to figure out how one goes about interfacing or connecting a Neve 8068 (32 chan) console and Studer A820 (24 track) tape recorder. I keep ending up on this site and although I can't find the answer here I thought maybe one of you very clever individuals could help me out!

This is purely a hypothetical situation I'm in, but nonetheless, I need to know!! (Just started going to school for engineering and this is for a project. Not sure why I chose gear that is impossible to find out about ...but I have a penchant for analog)

I'd really appreciate any info on where I can find this out... I really don't know anything about the process of connecting these 2 things, what other bits one would need, cabling, etc. so anything anyone knows would be a HUGE help!

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure that both units have XLR connectors on them but every Neve I've ever worked on was wired with a patchbay that matched the console.



It's on the right side of this picture. The Studer is on the left.

So you would wire the tape machine to this patchbay with normalled connections.

That's pretty much the standard.

Hope that helps.

Hi

You could try e-mailing these guys. I believe they still use the Neve desk?!?

Kenny gave the answer. If yo want to see it person, go to Phase One Studios. The console is Neve customized model and the recorder is a Studer A827. As I recall it, the console started as an 8036.

Of a well connected vintage,
Andre
