Master Your Mix with 3 New Items from Rupert Neve Designs

Rupert Neve is so venerated in the world of audio gear that his name rings out two times over: Say the name “Neve,” and you immediately conjure the mojo of vintage 1970s sound in all its glory; say “Rupert Neve Designs,” and you summon an image of striking modernity—of the most transparent, yet versatile tones in today’s hardware marketplace. With new offerings in the Rupert Neve Designs family, this titan of the pro audio industry is bridging the gap between his vintage flair and his modern adaptability.

First on the docket is the Rupert Neve Designs 5254 Dual-Diode Bridge Compressor, a unit that gives you the classic tones of Neve’s famous, original diode-bridge designs with modern upgrades to suit a variety of modern mixing applications. The 5254 exudes a crunchy yet creamy sound that packs a punch on drums, guitars and, if used well, sometimes the entire mix. However, this model improves the power supply and signal path of the original designs, taking the circuit into the modern age.
