From the father of the recording console comes the 5060 Centerpiece: the Class-A analog heart of your 21st-century studio. Sized for your desktop, the 5060 delivers the tonality and center section features of Rupert’s flagship 5088 console at your fingertips, cementing outboard together with serious custom transformers, flexible monitoring, DAW transport controls, and the raw power of a Rupert Neve-designed 24×2 mix-buss. With a modular, hybrid analogue/digital mix system built around the 5060, you can outfit your studio with exactly what you need – and nothing that you don’t (see configurations guide here). Utilizing modern DAW control technologies, the 5060 seamlessly integrates stem outputs from the DAW with the rest of your control room, sums the final mix, and provides 2-track outputs, source selection, and speaker feed outputs from the monitor section. Used in conjunction with 5059 mixers and Portico modules, the 5060 forms the core of a scalable analogue system. In this arrangement, the 5059s provide individual channel control, aux routing, and expandable channel counts, the Portico modules provide preamplification, EQ and dynamics, and the 5060 unites it all. The 5060 brings your dreams of a seamless hybrid workflow to reality.

Mastering hardware to add color, depth and "3D"

Well I use a Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece and use the analog inserts to send those channels to other analog gear. It was a game changer for my sound. Although this is not 19” like you specified, they also have 5059’s. These are all summing mixers that allow for analog inputs...

Do you still consider that using OTB outweighs the costs of it?

...that analog hardware imparts. Things really started to sound like I wanted them to when I got my Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece. I route from the 5060 to analog processing and any fin tuning I do in the box if needed. You can’t compete with summing through and pushing the master...
