Rupert Neve 5034 Newton Channel

Channel strip

Newton Channel is a modern and powerful channel strip, with a long sound tradition. Its intuitive design offers a classic and recognizable sound, as well as the ability to shape the sound with the hallmark characteristics of Rupert Neve Designs. Newton Channel is suitable for recording studios of various sizes and can be used both in the studio and live, allowing more professionals to experience the quality of RND products. Its name is inspired by Rupert’s birthplace, Newton Abbot, England, and reflects the sonic journey of his life: from traditional to modern, with everything in between. This is an extremely versatile, high-quality channel strip, capable of bringing any sound source to life with that classic Rupert Neve Designs sound.

Overview

The Newton Channel includes a Class-A mic preamp, a discreet and musical 3-band EQ section, a fast and flexible VCA compressor, and exclusive transformer-coupled outputs by Rupert Neve Designs featuring the innovative Silk Red & Variable blue.

Input Stage and Microphone Preamplifier

The Newton’s mic preamp delivers the tone and musicality typical of Rupert Neve Designs products. This preamp allows you to easily create a crisp, clean and detailed sound. With 72dB of gain, including 6dB of fine trim control, the Newton is ideal for a wide variety of sources. The input stage is designed to match the impedances of normal microphone sources and can also handle line levels, making it possible to use a Newton pair even in the mix stage. The Newton also includes a variable high-pass filter with a wide frequency adjustment range and an independent bypass switch that allows you to quickly eliminate unwanted noise, resonances or other low frequencies in the source signal.

The Equalizer

The EQ section of the Newton is designed to offer speed and flexibility with simplified controls. The low and high frequency bands can be fine-tuned via 31-step potentiometers, allowing for gain boosts or cuts of up to 12dB. You can switch between gentle and extreme settings as needed. The Newton’s parametric mid-band EQ includes another 31-step potentiometer and a wide mid-range, adjustable between 220Hz and 7kHz. This makes the mid-frequency band particularly flexible, allowing you to reduce unwanted frequencies in the low-mid range, boost the mid-range presence, or roll down the high-mid frequencies. Selecting a fixed Q ensures the balance between musicality and accuracy, wide enough for precise EQ without negatively interfering with adjacent frequencies. As with each section of the Newton Channel, the EQ also features an independent bypass button.

The Compressor

The Newton Channel also includes the latest version of Rupert Neve Designs’ VCA compressor, with a +20dB gain make-up and a large control to adjust the desired amount of compression while maintaining the sound. There’s also a “pre EQ/post EQ” switch to place the compressor before or after the EQ section, as well as an independent bypass button.

Variable silk

At the end of the Newton’s signal path is Silk’s exclusive variable circuit, which allows the 2nd and 3rd harmonics to be amplified through Rupert Neve Designs’ custom output transformers, creating a vintage sound. With the adjustable Texture knob, you can precisely select the desired harmonic density. The Silk Red mode accentuates the harmonics in the high-mid and high-mid frequencies, while the Blue mode emphasizes the harmonics in the low-mid and low-mid frequencies. With the Silk/Texture circuit engaged, the Newton’s output stage manages to enrich every track, imparting more power and brilliance.

Custom Transformer Outputs

The Newton Channel features a custom transformer balanced line output stage. In addition, there is a -6 dBu XLR output which allows you to compensate for high input levels and Silk harmonic saturation. This allows you to make the most of the transformer’s harmonics without distorting the next device in the signal chain. Both outputs are active and can be used simultaneously.
