Console’s

Neve Broadcast Console – 1 of 4 ever made.  The console had been commissioned to be built for MPR to use in their broadcast studios.  When they decided that digital was the way to go I had the chance to grab this beauty through a long and interesting chain of events.    (highly modded)

Features:

  • 14 mono channels and 2 stereo channels (18 x 2 in its most basic setup)
  • Vintage Neve summing buss and Vintage API summing buss switchable on each channel
  • 6 auxes sends, 4 returns (working on another 8 for a total of 12)
  • Recapped, calibrated and mostly new Pots
  • 2 extra pairs of inputs going directly into the summing buss so I can dump the Folcrom and the Delta into the Neve.
  • Custom Mastering Center Section, 3 speaker outputs, 5 monitor inputs, stepped volume control, mono, dim, cut, 10 db boost, solo L, solo R, Phase, Sum and Difference.  It also has a built in talk back and mastering quality headphone amp.  (I LOVE THIS THING)

More mods and upgrades are planned in the future.  But This is only as good as the music that comes out of it so that comes first!

Soundcraft Delta DLX (fully modded by Audio Upgrades and ZOD)

Features:

  • 6  mono channels
  • 2  stereo channels
  • 4  Buss Modules  or  stereo line in’s to make the console a 18 x 2.
