Product Description

Stock photo used. May not depict specific item configuration.

Armed with the sonic firepower of a classic Neve console and decked out with both touchscreen DAW control and cutting-edge integration, the Neve Genesys Black Recording Console puts everything you need, right at your fingertips. While sitting at command central, you'll have quick access to 1073-loaded channel strips, each controllable by faders on the left side. From there, you can reach out and direct core DAW functions using the central touchscreen and the sixteen faders below it. Then, on the right, you'll find eight more faders under the Genesys Black's dedicated 5.1-ready monitor section, giving you analog control of eight aux buses.

  • Flexible I/O to meet a wide range of workflows
  • Steer your DAW with OSX and Windows-ready touchscreen
  • 24 motorized faders provide a flexible workflow
  • Premium monitor section drawn directly from the 88RS
  • 8 channel strips, 16 mix inputs of classic Neve sound and processing
  • Digital I/O at 192 kHz with Neve-quality converters
  • Upgradable and expandable to meet your evolving needs


If you could use just one word to describe the Neve Genesys Black, it would be versatile. Neve went to work adapting their renowned ​Genesys ​console to perfectly meet the ever-evolving needs of today's project studios. With Neve channel strips, anchored by popular 1073 pres, the Genesys Black gives you the Neve sound when you want it, while offering plenty of room to tie in your own ​outboard ​ gear ​should ​ you need additional processing​.


  • Mic input (XLR)
  • Line input (TRS)
  • DAW input (D-Type)
  • 2x tape return (D-Type)
  • Direct output (D-Type)


The Neve Genesys Black takes visual and tactile control to a new level by incorporating a touchscreen into the center of your workflow. Plug-and-play compatible with your OSX and Windows DAWs, the Neve Genesys Black touchscreen allows you to intuitively take control of your session for a decidedly more modern, convenient, elegant approach than outdated click-and-drag mouse workflows.


  • Multi-DAW support (Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo)
  • 16 channel DAW monitoring
  • 16 dedicated DAW faders, cuts, solos, and track arm switches
  • 23" Multitouch enabled display
  • Stereo DAW metering
  • Expanded DAW transport control section
  • Expanded DAW automation controls
  • DAW fader flip mode for larger mix sessions
  • VPOT control for DAW plugins, pans and aux sends
  • DAW fader channel and bank navigation


The motorized ​faders featured on the Neve Genesys Black are ready to work the way you need it to. When you're tracking, you can use the eight faders on the left to control your inputs, the sixteen in the middle to make DAW adjustments, and the eight on the right for all your aux duties. Then, when you're ready to get your hands on your mix, you can switch the Neve Genesys Black into DAW mode, spreading each channel across the faders that, yes, are fully DAW-automated.


Understanding that monitoring flexibility can be as key as I/O, Neve drew from the 88RS in designing the Neve Genesys Black. What you get are two sets each of mono, stereo, and 5.1, readying the Neve Genesys Black for a wide variety of monitoring workflows. You can even bring in a 5.1 external source into the monitoring section.


  • Dual 5.1 loudspeaker outputs
  • Dual Stereo loudspeaker outputs
  • 48-segment LED metering for channel, DAW, 8T, 2T and monitoring
  • PPM/VU scale metering
  • 6 Auxes (4 mono and 2 stereo)
  • 8 groups, 2 main outs
  • 4 stereo effects returns
  • 5.1 mixing and monitoring
  • 2 dedicated cue mixes
  • Full talkback/ return talkback capability


Although the Neve Genesys Black certainly knows modern, it's schooled in classic, too. Genesys Black channel strips are anchored by the heralded 1073 preamps. As for the EQ, it's a 4-band VCA design with a filter ​taken straight from the Neve 88RS console​, ​and you can even opt to fit genuine Neve 1084 Classic EQ. The ​optional ​ dynamics are traditional Neve VCA ​ and all EQ/Dynamics parameters can be easily saved and instantly recalled later. ​ The net result? Just enough of the iconic Neve sound onboard and always at the ready, with the I/O flexibility to incorporate the other tones, flavors, and characteristics your projects call for.


On the Neve Genesys Black, digital I/O comes in the form of Firewire, AES, and MADI. Notably, there are three possible D/A I/O paths within each channel strip: two inputs and ​a ​ direct output. These three paths can be sent to and from the A/D converters. Speaking of converters, they sport the same circuit as the Neve DPD, offering up 192 kHz performance at the kind of precision and quality you'd expect from Neve.


Understanding that your needs are unique and might change over time, Neve offers a variety of upgrades and options for the Genesys Black. Whether you seek full-fledged A/D/DA on all the monitor outputs, or seek to make changes to your EQ or dynamics options, Neve has made sure the the Genesys Black can adapt to a range of environments and workflows.
