At this year’s Musik Messe the Rupert Neve Designs 5088 honored with the MIPA award for Best Mixing Desk(High End), the most recent in a long line of accolades including the TEC Award, PAR Excellence Award and Mix Certified hit amongst others. Derived from the opinions of over 50 leading magazines world wide, the 10th Annual MIPA Awards represent the most conclusive survey of quality and innovation in the music industry today.
Years after many thought the analogue console was in its final days, the forward-thinking 5088 has become an instant classic with its revolutionary 90 Volt, discrete, class-A circuit topology and modular design. With no worries about future software incompatibilities, planned obsolescence and a proven service track record, the 5088 represents a studio centerpiece that will remain current for decades.
"After redefining people expectations so many times over the past 4 decades, its astounding that Rupert has been able to raise the bar yet again." Said Rupert Neve Design’s Josh Thomas. "The level of support and interest in the 5088 has surpassed our wildest imagination".
Originally conceived as a way to give engineers the most pristine mix buss available while bringing together their digital and analogue equipment without forcing the purchase of mic pre’s, eq’s and compressors on every channel, the 5088’s modular approach to console layout insures that installed 5088’s will be able to adapt as the music business changes and remain a fixture on the studio landscape for years to come.
