The world of live sound just got a huge boost from none other than pro audio legend Rupert Neve. Yesterday at the NAMM Show, Rupert Neve Designs announced that they would be releasing the RMP-D8, a new 8 channel mic pre with DANTE integration. While many live engineers have worked Rupert Neve Designs analog gear into their rigs, the RMP-D8 makes it that much easier to bring the brand's full analog sound to the stage. The new mic pre unit comes with 8 mic/line inputs with 48v phantom power, 1dB stepped Class A mic pres with 60 dB gain and remote capabilities, custom RND transformers and mastering-grade 24-bit 192 kHz converters. For live sound engineers looking to bring the power of Rupert Neve Designs to their rig with the ease of DANTE, your time has finally arrived. Stay tuned for more updates on the RMP-D8 as more info becomes available.
