  1. Help Vintage King Say #ThankYouRupert With Exclusive Rupert Neve Pin

    Help Vintage King Say #ThankYouRupert With Exclusive Rupert Neve Pin
    Rupert Neve’s legacy of kindness will live on as long as his important contributions to the recording studio. In honor of what would have been his 95th birthday, Vintage King and Rupert Neve Designs are launching the #ThankYouRupert campaign. We will be randomly giving away exclusive pins in hopes of inspiring others to do great things in Rupert's name. We ask that if you receive a pin, you pay it forward. In its simplest form, paying it forward means to pass on an act of kindness to someone else. This could mean you make a charitable donation to a worthwhile organization or volunteer your time to give back to others. You can even use your skills in the studio to mentor an up-and-coming engineer or artist. Continue reading →

    Achieving Console Sounds With Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece, 5059 Satellite And 5057 Orbit

Two of the brand's classics, the 5059 Satellite and 5060 Centerpiece, were given the Shelford Blue color treatment and the new 5057 Orbit was added to the summing family.  With the addition of the 5057 Orbit, it's easier than ever for studios to achieve Rupert's classic console sound, no matter their size or budget constraints.

  6. First Listen: Rupert Neve Designs 5211 Dual Mic Preamp

    First Listen: Rupert Neve Designs 5211 Dual Mic Preamp
    Whenever we talk about thought leaders or innovation in pro audio, one must begin with Rupert Neve. While he got his start creating monitors, Rupert will forever be known for his work designing consoles and mic pres. The timeless 1073 has long been lauded as the world's preeminent mic pre, a design which Rupert has continued to build upon with his current brand, Rupert Neve Designs. For their latest product, the 5211 two-channel mic pre, Rupert Neve Designs has taken elements from their original 5012 two-channel mic pre and given them a significant upgrade for 2019. One of the biggest updates is the addition of a variable Silk control, which offers users the ability to finely control Rupert's Class A output stage (the same as the Shelford Channel). The original only featured a single Silk button with no knob to control the output. Continue reading →
  7. Around The Shop: Neve 31102 Mic Pre/EQ

    Around The Shop: Neve 31102 Mic Pre/EQ
    Justin Weiss, a technician over at the Vintage King Tech Shop, has been hard at work restoring and modding 16 vintage Neve 31102 modules. These input modules were designed and intended for use in Neve's large-format recording and mixing consoles, including the 8058 and 8068. These were the first "in-line monitor" desks on the market and gave the engineer tracking and monitoring options at each channel. We'll let Justin take it from here: "Think of a quad summing mixer with small fader and extended mixdown capabilities and a global Mic/Line input switching option. This is the main reason a 31102 is different from all other 10-series (1066, 1073, 1084, etc) modules. The module, on its own, was built with a 10468 Mic input transformer inside and sensitivity switch (gain) setup for only mic levels. The line input signals comes from a companion 32430 Mixdown Switching Module (Line or Tape Returns) located directly below the 31102 in the 8058/68 desk. The switching module gives the user a Line trim missing from the sensitivity of the 31102 gain switch. So, again, the 31102 module was designed around the 8058/68 signal flow. It is worth realizing the purpose of the BA106 board being a buffer between the output of the line input switching module and the EQ built within the 31102 circuits. Continue reading →
  8. Pete Lyman Talks Using Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 In His Workflow

    Pete Lyman Talks Using Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 In His Workflow
    Pete Lyman is a world-renowned mastering engineer who has worked on records for Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy, just to name a few. More recently, Lyman mastered Brandi Carlile's 2018 album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which received Grammy nominations for Record of the Year and Album of the Year. The importance of converters to the workflow of a mastering engineer like Lyman cannot be emphasized enough. So when his friends at Rupert Neve Designs sent over the RMP-D8, Lyman immediately began working the eight-channel Dante mic preamp and mastering-grade 24-bit 192 kHz converters into his chain.
