Neve 1081 R
Mono Microphone Preamplifier Module
The 1081R makes an ideal alternative for engineers looking to deliver the Neve sound quality, without investing in a new console. The rack can be positioned remotely and controlled by a PC making it ideal for both studio and live recordings. This system consists of a micro processor controlled 12 way rack and a choice of three mic pre-amplifiers, the 1081, 1073 and Air Montserrat (from the vintage Air Montserrat console). By selecting a combination of these three mic pre-amp designs, engineers have the flexibility to record classical music, pop, rock and roll or any required sound.
The Air mic pre is the optimum choice for ambient mic techniques. The 1081 offers a perfect response to close micing techniques and the 1073 provides a unique class A sound.
All the mic pre’s can be controlled manually from the front panel. Individual Gain, Phase, Phantom and 20dB Pad. Gain is a continuous movement controller with a range from 20dB to 70dB.
The 1081R rack is connected to a PC by means of a 9 pin serial control cable via an RS232 to RS485 converter. The settings for the 1081R channels can be saved to and loaded from the PC. Operational settings such as gain, phase & 20dB pad can be controlled either from the rack itself or more commonly, via the interface screen.
