AMEK/NEVE 9098 Analog Console Dynamics Processors (HW)

In my opinion he was right on the money - they did exactly that. Ultimately I sold them because my tastes gravitate towards the 'character' end of the spectrum, I look for devices that add something unreal or hyper-real to what I am putting in because that's the type of music I make HOWEVER - if you want that in your face super realistic colorless + transient response thing is what you look for, I can confirm that these units I had did that fantastically. I think they'd be a go-to for acoustic/classical etc for the extremely live colorless recordings they seem to be able to make.
those eq's are amongst my very favorite.

Hey Soundfactory, I would love to see a response curve of your desk to compare it to the one I posted. Would be really interesting to see how they compare.

Congrats on a fantastic looking console. Very nice and very impressive.

Here for the gear

I was briefly a bench tech for ARN Consultants when the first 9098 in the United States was delivered. This split desk was assembled at a studio in Memphis TN for testing and evaluation before going on to serve Wu Tang Clan in New York. My job was to go through every input and output with test signals to check response, noise, distortion.
