Just looking for opinions on this console. Has anyone here tracked and/or mixed with one? Any thoughts would be much appreciated...Cheers -- JB
I can't say that I've tracked or mixed on them but I did build some at Neve. One of my favourite consoles because you can pack 36 channels, 8 busses, and a bunch of 33314 lim comps into a pretty small format.
I built a 36 channel model that was bristling with every option you can imagine for Scottish TV that was later sold and shipped to the USA.
Also, I worked on one that I sold to the Catholic Broadcast organisation at Glasgow Cathedral. I have happy memories of a crew of us lifting it up about five floors of stairs to get it to the control room!
I have no idea what happened to that one... it was another 36-8
Wow, this is such an old thread...I didn't expect to ever see it return! I was very, very seriously considering a 36 channel 5316 for a while, but I ultimately decided against it. They are indeed wonderful consoles (the 33114 EQ is a thing of beauty), but I wanted something...well, simpler. I was looking for a great, sixteen input tracking console, with a few extra channels for mixdown...something to be the cornerstone of my new studio...
So I decided to get an 8014. I'm very excited about it...I'm in the process of installing it now, so I'll let you know how it goes. Cheers -- JB
