Description

The 2264A is now available for your 500 Series rack! Crafted in England by Neve engineers, the Neve 2264ALB retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original 2264A by using the same architecture, matching components and original hand-wound transformers as its classic counterpart and adds new features: a Signal Presence indicator LED and a Slow Attack option. And it delivers it in a modern and portable form-factor which professional producers and engineers demand.

Originally designed in 1974, the Neve 2264A mono Limiter/ Compressor unit quickly became a legend. Delivering similar facilities and performance as the earlier 2254 Limiter/Compressor type, it did so despite being packaged in a more compact form-factor. Discrete, Class A/B design and transformer-coupled circuits used in the input, innovative bridge-driver design, side-chain and output stages ensured a totally unique sound. The original 2264A units are still sought after, decades after production stopped, and they remain one of the milestone pieces of studio equipment.

Simply install the 2264ALB into an empty slot in your compatible 500 Series rack, connect your line level signals and inject the legendary Neve dynamic sound into your audio creations. And it's the perfect pairing for the incredible Neve 1073LB microphone pre amp module. The 2264ALB module can be inserted between the input and output stages of the 1073LB module, creating an all-new Neve classic audio path.

Classic… and Revolutionary.

Features:

  • Classic mono Limiter/Compressor, available in a 500-series format
  • Transformer-coupled circuits used in Input, Bridge-driver, Side-chain and Output stages
  • Independent Limiter and Compressor IN/OUT selectors
  • BYPASS switch connects input terminals directly to output terminals
  • Slow Attack switch changes between classic 2264A attack settings and new Slow Attack setting for buss compression work
  • Digital LED meter with approximate PPM ballistics indicates 0 dB to 20 dB of gain reduction
  • Audio Processing Insert design allows the audio to/from the 2264ALB module to be inserted into the audio path of an existing 1073LB (modules must be fitted in the same rack chassis)

Tight, tight, tight

May be a bit pricey compared to some other 500 comps but blows most other 500 comp lims I've compared it to away. Compressor tightens things up nicely. Fast release is great on drum rooms. Limiter grabs but with little artifact like with most limiters. I'm grabbing a second one soon

Helps sit vocals and guitars on top of the mix

I find my latest 500 comp purchase on 2264 to my favorite comp in my rack. Adds Neve richness but still Fast and punchy. Killer on my drums, drum buss, bass and guitars. Really helps me place vocals and guitars on a recent mix right on top of the mix.
