Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece
The Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece combines the sound and features of Rupert's flagship console 5088 into a Class-A, compact modular framework for your 21st-century studio. It cements your gear together with serious transformers & faders, flexible monitoring, talkback & DAW transport controls, and the legendary raw power of a Rupert Neve 24x2 mix-buss.
With a modular, hybrid analogue/digital mix system built around the 5060, you can outfit your studio with exactly what you need – and nothing that you don’t. Utilizing modern DAW control technologies, the 5060 seamlessly integrates stem outputs from the DAW with the rest of your control room, sums the final mix, and provides 2-track outputs, source selection, and speaker feed outputs from the monitor section.
With custom transformers, a class-A mix buss and variable Silk texture control, the 5060 can provide a wide range of tonal flavors. Drive the mix buss hard and crank the Texture knob for a rich, saturated, vintage vibe – or disengage Silk entirely for clear, wide-open sonic beauty.
Silk reduces the negative feedback on the output transformer, adding harmonic content as the texture is increased. Silk red mode accentuates the saturation in the high-mids and highs, while silk blue mode features more saturation in the lows and low mids.
The 5060 Centerpiece forms the core of a scalable Rupert Neve Designs analogue system when used in conjunction with the 5059 mixers and Portico modules. In this arrangement, the 5059s provide individual channel control, aux routing, and expandable channel counts, the Portico modules provide preamplification, EQ and dynamics, and the 5060 unites it all. The 5060 brings your dreams of a seamless hybrid workflow to reality.
