Neve 1081R 12 Slot Rack, PSU and Software - Unloaded

Remote Rack houses up to 12 Air Montserrat or 1081 mic preamps with remote adjust/recall, adding multichannel Neve quality to your console
MFR# 1081R 12 Slot Rack

Product Description

The mic preamps utilized in the Neve 1081R Remote Rack represent the very essence of the Neve sound. These pres – the 1081 and the Air Montserrat – are chosen time and time again by recording engineers and producers all over the world. They have proven themselves over decades, tracking some of the most famous recordings of all time, and are found in a majority of the world’s finest studios.

The 1081R is the ideal solution for engineers seeking multiple channels of Neve sound quality without investing in a new console. This system consists of a microprocessor-controlled 12-slot rack and a choice of two superb mic preamps, the Neve 1081 and Air Montserrat (from the vintage Air Montserrat console).

By selecting their desired combination of mic preamps, engineers have the flexibility to record classical, pop, rock, or any other musical format, and control it all from a Neve Console or standalone PC. In terms of application, the Air Montserrat Pre is the optimum choice for ambient recording, while the 1081 offers the perfect response for close miking of vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.

The rack can be positioned remotely and controlled via an Encore system on a Neve console or a standalone PC, making it the perfect choice for studio or live recording applications. (Connections come courtesy of a 9-pin serial control cable via RS232 to RS485 converter.) Operational settings such as gain, phase and 20dB pad can be controlled either from the rack or via the interface screen, and stored for later recall.

The 1081R allows these legendary mic preamps to be used as remote inputs for the 88RS analogue console, or provides the perfect companion to our digital consoles.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
