Neve Genesys G48
Neve Genesys G-48 small format analogue console: Fully analogue signal path with digital control.
Neve’s heritage in large format analogue console manufacture is unsurpassed, the analogue NEVE 88R is the centerpiece of Studio 1 in AIR and Abbey Road studios and many other hugely successful studios around the world.
Neve released the Genesys automated small format analogue console in 2008 to meet the demand for a small format analogue console with the sound quality of the 88R. The electronics of the Genesys are taken from the 88R large format analogue console, both designed by Robin Porter, Chief Neve designer.
The size of the Genesys can be increased at any time up to 64 faders (128 inputs). The Genesys is an in-line dual analogue signal path per channel console ie. a 16 fader desk can handle 32 discrete analogue line inputs, each with a balanced insert.
The Genesys G-48 spec is as follows: 24 x mic/line inputs with 100mm touch sensitive motorised moving faders (24 x mic pres are Neve 1073) and balanced inserts, 24 x secondary analogue signal path inputs with level, pan, mute, solo, aux routing, balanced inserts and flip, 6 auxs, 8 groups with 100mm touch sensitive moving faders and balanced inserts, 4 x stereo aux returns, 2 cue buses with tilt eq, full metering, 4-way speaker selection, surround monitoring, DAW control, complete recall and Encore touch sensitive moving fader automation. The master section is very comprehensive including global modes and solo in front mode in the comprehensive solo section.
The Genesys has an internal PSU with no fan, and the 16 fader expansion options have their own internal PSU.
Options include EQ and dynamics per channel. Superior mastering grade Neve A/D and D/A are also available as options. DAW control is included with the base console via Ethernet and Genesys will control Pro-Tools, Logic, Nuendo and other DAWs. Transport buttons are built into the console. The Genesys console can be ordered factory fitted in any configuration, or all options can be easily and quickly field retro fitted.
16 Fader expansion frames can be fitted at any time on either side of the master section (they can be filled with 8 x channels at a time) either straight or curved around the operator, up to 64 faders. The console stand and speaker shelves are included with Genesys, as is delivery in the UK. The Genesys is built in the Neve factory in Lancashire and sounds exceptional!! A remarkable console . Hand Made in England.
