Hi Greg,

Though't i'd re-join and say hi (forgot original username!)

When i'm not busy fixing gear mate, my other "thing" is cars, and especially lighting (ok and audio), stay with me here, i've got some wicked stuff you might like 2.1 million colour LED tape, multi zone control via IR remote, and all at 12VDC

The build looks like it's coming along though, well impressed with the project.

Guy

This list is very, very well chosen. HOWEVER, it kills me to see such a list full of the best of the very best and some details missing:

1. Get one or more of the big time mics : M49, ELA 251, U47, C12 ( not the VR ) etc.

2. Get yourself some of the classic Pultec EQP-1A and the not least important Manley Massive Passive Mastering Version.

As for the rest, GREAT list, can't get any better than this !

We havnt really started on the mic buying yet!

We will only buy vintage gear in perfect condition so will wait for the right pieces. We demoed the massive passive and didnt think it was as good as the DW Fearn.

Just to show people some of the other work our architect has done, so you all have an idea of the level that this room will be at.

Client List - Recording Architecture


Roger says that this room, being his last before retirement is his swan song and therefore will be up there in the top 5 of his career.

There has been no expense spared, much to Andy's dismay!

"A Neve 88R studio in Liverpool, now that would be interesting" – Dan Bern – American Singer Songwriter

"Without doubt, the Neve 88R is the finest recording console on the market and would be an asset for Liverpool." – Tom Misner, Producer & CEO of SAE.

"The 88RS is an awesome console" – Buddy Brundo

"Like Neve, Liverpool has always held a special place in my heart. It conjurers up memories of the 'Beatles', 'The Searchers' and the whole 60's music scene. I am often asked about Liverpool when working with American bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins. They are always interested in the history of British music and I am sure they would be interested in recording their album in such a famous musical city" Roy Thomas Baker – Producer for Bowie, T-Rex, Rolling Stones, Smashing Pumpkins, Guns and Roses and The Darkness.

Rates

Hi

The £800 a day Greg mentioned was with Pete Coleman Engineering probably one of the best mix engineers in the UK.

With Pete 'pee wee' Coleman the rate is £800 per day if you want an assistant with Pete add £50 per day.

With a good assistant the rate is £700 per 12 hour day.

Book 10 consecutive days the rate is £650 per day with a good assistant.

Book 20 consecutive days the rate is £600 per day with a good assistant

No hidden extras, includes 2 HD7 rigs with 60 analogue IO per system and all the toys, including CLASP and the hire of the 2 inch tape.

Axcess to all areas of the building and full mic locker, plus my extensive collection of guitar amps and boutique pedals, one of the best collections in the UK.

All rates are PLUS vat currently running @ 20% in the UK.

Cheers have a good weekend.

Ive never personally slagged him off! Just stated that I wouldnt buy a classic 75 and that it isnt made by AMS-Neve!

I have a lot of respect for Tom and my comments about the Classic 75 were not a personal attack on him.

If I have caused any offence to Tom then I appologise profusely and when I see him ill appologise in person.

Things can get misunderstood and taken out of context on here.

Like if I said that I was probably bigger than Jesus, id cause offence, but in reality i just mean that im a big 20 stone guy! See what I mean??

Hope all is cool?

Post Current specs

6.7 Amps for a console of this size is impressive, nearly unbelievable, even at 220V. Does Neve have a published spec in an install guide, I couldn't find anything on their website? Are the rails +/- 12V??? To be accurate the Encore PC would need to add to this value, but that's probably 1A or less.

Just curious how this feat is achieved.

That was total! with the Encore, all the faders moving during a test and gains turned up.

Neve have started using very advanced switch mode supplies, they are very efficient.
