Neve releases all the info on the new 5088 console
Still no REAL photos, but I'm sure they will come shortly.
Looks like it could be a winner...

I don't know.

$32K for 16 channels with no EQ's or automation is stretching it if you ask me...even if its Rupert Neve.

Yikes! Is that the list or street? Either way it seems steep.

I think there's still a hole in the market that no manufacturer has yet to address at a reasonable price level. I'm talking about the guy that is using a DAW as the center of his small studio and doesn't need a full featured monitoring, cue mix section, or fancy metering, because his converters, sound card routing software, and Hearback System are already accomplishing that. Really this guy just wants some faders, panpots, and routing switches that can control either the DAW mixer or analog signals (he has a bunch of outboard compressors) depending on where the source is coming from. Maybe there would be provisions to drop in some EQ or Aux send modules on each channel. Everything could be digitally controlled for easy recall. Some kind of master section would to insert outboard compressors or EQ's on the 2-bus. Is this too much to ask for in 2007? Does this have to cost $32k or $90k? I want to see something that allows us to really integrate analog hardware with our DAW software. The DAW manufacturers need to team up with some hardware guys and work out something clever. What a "console" is needs to be rethought from the ground up for those of us that have hybrid setups.

Anyway...back to reality I guess...

Looks like a killer design and very clever indeed! It's actually brilliant. Would have been nice to include some stereo channels though.

I agree that is silly money for a mixer w/out eq

Wow, that's a lot indeed. Where is that price quoted, didn't see it on the website at once?
